Biographical Info

Putting my clients first is my top priority, which means I am accessible 24/7 via phone or email. Buying or selling a home is a big deal and it’s my job to make sure it is a smooth, exciting and joyous experience that you will remember for years to come!

I grew up in the Cleveland suburb of Berea, Ohio. Home of the Browns Training Facility, Baldwin Wallace University and Berea Midpark High School. Growing up both parents were Realtors and made sure I was able to experience everything this great city has to offer. I graduated from the University of Toledo in 2005. After graduation, I immediately moved back to Cleveland and started my career in sales with one of our nations largest home builders. After working in new home construction I worked in sales & non- profit for a few years. However, no other job could ever compare to helping someone find their dream home.

I am proud to serving Cleveland’s South and West Side residents with their buying and selling needs in the Greater Cleveland Area. Through my experience, I specialize in first time home buyers, move-up buyers, downsizing, and buyers that are new to the Greater Cleveland Area. I am able to consult prospective buyers on desired home types and styles. I coach sellers in how to properly list, stage, market and sell their homes in a competitive market. In my opinion, Cleveland is my favorite place in the entire world. Even in the winter. I am proud to be from this amazing city and love to show it off every chance I get.

Purchasing a home can be one of the largest investments made in a lifetime, and I can’t wait to work with you to buy your next dream home and/or sell your current home!
