We came from the “third coast” (Chicago), were sent to the West Coast and landed on the best coast! My journey as a Marine Corps spouse brought me to beautiful Stafford, VA and wanting to help people find HOME. Our family has fallen in love with the area, the people and the opportunities. When I found Coldwell Banker Elite, I knew it was exceptional. For starters, we have a full-service team to smooth the transitions of buying, selling, renting and managing properties. We work together as family here to give YOU the highest level of support. Military life has a way of bringing opportunities we wouldn’t otherwise experience. Our locations and bases may have even overlapped with yours at some point! Regardless, I know what it’s like to pivot. One of the big changes in my life came when I married my husband and within months found out we were moving to California AND having a baby! We sold our house in Illinois and I left my ten year career as a Montessori teacher to stay home with my little ones. All the while, we dreamt about owning a home again and spent our time looking at listings and planning out our dream home. I love assisting people and seeing their dreams also become reality. I don’t know about you, but digging deep into a new area is one of my learned skill sets! A large part of my job is walking along side you and your family to make sure you have the confidence to make these important decisions. Just like a good teacher- I strive to remove the obstacles to ensure success at every stage. You will never feel alone in this and I will work hard to make sure all your questions are answered promptly. this is where my communication skills honed as an educator really shine. I know what it’s like to start over and I will be so happy to work with you to find the ideal location for you! If you are new to the area, I have a ton of suggestions of things you need to check out while you are here. I am still in the minivan stage of life with two little guys on one end and one on her way to college! You will find us at the playground one day and a quiet coffee shop the next. We enjoy all the National Parks in the area, especially Prince William for a local hike and Great Falls for the view! I am just a phone call away when you are ready to get started on this East Coast adventure.
