Hey there…

I'm A global nomad happily Settled in The Charlottesville Area in Central VA

I retired here because it’s truly beautiful, filled with history,  has a wonderful food/wine community, is cultured yet rustic, and it’s downright fun!  It’s only two hours to Washington DC, less than an hour to the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Shenandoah Valley.  

Why Real Estate?

I don't Just sell homes,
I help Change lives

I believe that Home reflects who we are, it is an act of self expression, commitment to family and also, a great act of entrepreneurship. Investing in Home is not only investing in your life it is also investing in your financial future. As an agent with Long & Foster, I have access to a plethora of state-of-the-art marketing and research tools, sophisticated training opportunities, and an incredible network of specialized services and a community of agents. 

The dream was planted in your heart for a reason

When Working With Me

A deeply caring professional with unceasing commitment to you and your myriad, if not shifting, goals. 

Attention to all the moving parts of a real estate transaction, from day one to follow-up after closing and everything in-between.

Patience instead of stress, laughter whenever possible, pirouetting at times of success, all with quiet persistence and determination.

The encouragement to embrace the joy and excitement of transition and to weather the storms with hope and calm.

Wow! Food

I’m a real foodie, I love to cook and entertain, eat exotic global foods as well as simple fresh eggs from the neighbor’s hens. 


Love the arts and spend a lot of time in museums, listening to music, reading, and when I can, attending live theatre.
