I am so proud to be an Advisor with Engel & Völkers, where competence, exclusivity, and passion are wrapped up in the personal service we provide our clients. This is what sets the Engel & Völkers brand apart from all others. I love sharing my passion for helping others, while being able to utilize the best tools in the real estate industry!
My many years of success in sales and marketing included wireless phone sales, upscale advertising sales, and educational/training software sales. I made a slight shift in my career path and went to work with the local MLS for 3 years, developing and delivering training on national real estate technology platforms. These technologies are required for agents to successfully conduct their business transactions. Once the training programs were established, I left the MLS and joined the team at Engel & Völkers Hilton Head – Bluffton, where I had seen first-hand the level of excellence the company introduced to our market.
Initially joining the new Engel & Völkers as the Manager of Brokerage Services, I established the New Advisor Onboarding Program. This included the set up and training of new Advisors on all Engel & Völkers systems, as well as other real estate technologies vital to successful agents in today’s marketplace. I shared these programs at multiple E&V Leadership Retreats. Clearly understanding the backend of the real estate industry helped to make my move back into sales seamless and successful!
Also contributing to my success, my degree in Communications with individually designed Business Minor with emphasis in Marketing, from the University of Wisconsin – Superior, has helped me tremendously throughout my career.
I love living in and selling property in the Lowcountry of South Carolina. The moderate temperatures allow for doing all that I love: watching the tides roll in as the sun sets, enjoying the beach year-round, and spending time outdoors with friends and family. As an avid music lover and adventure foodie, I enjoy the amazing entertainment and fabulous food scene that living in the Lowcountry brings.
Married to Don, who works in the vacation industry, travel is an important part of our lives, including an 8-year stint in Hawaii. Our oldest daughter, Ali, still lives on the Big Island with her husband Jim. They are underwater photographers, conservationists, and much more. Our youngest daughter, Alex, is an Athletic Trainer in Greenville, pursuing her dream career with great passion. Alex is married to Joe, who is also in a sports centered career as a soccer coach/manager/player. Of course, life would not be complete without our two Australian Shepherds, Charlie and Sydney.
