The Art of Living Well
Thank you for visiting. I hope you will find this site useful and informative. Please take a few moments to browse. I'm sure you will find many useful tools such as searchable MLS listings, community information, loan information, and much, much more!. I welcome any questions or comments you may have and, by all means, please feel free to contact me regarding any of your real estate needs. I am more than happy to provide you with professional advice, even if you do not have any immediate plans to buy or sell. Now you have access to your own real estate agent before you even need one! I have many resources at my disposal and have achieved the GRI designation (Graduate Realtor Institute), one of only 26% of realtors to do so. I am also a certified home stager so my clients benefit from my knowledge when it comes to preparing the house to make it "show worthy".
If you appreciate excellence in customer service, personal attention and an agent that takes a genuine interest in your journey…..you can stop looking. I enjoy helping people turn their dreams into reality. I will create a customized plan of action to help you achieve your goals, using both the latest technology and interpersonal communication skills.
I have been a resident of Hickory since 1989. I moved here from Florida with my husband, Todd, when he decided on Hickory as the location for his medical practice in podiatry. His brother was a physician at Graystone Ophthalmology and had told us about the area and how happy they were here. We have been very happy with our decision to move to Hickory! Our three children have enjoyed growing up in this family-friendly town, participating in the city sports programs, music schools and outdoor recreational facilities.
I am a professional flutist as well as a realtor. I have found Hickory to be rich in the arts and have involved myself as a teacher with the Suzuki School of the Arts, a performer with the Western Piedmont Chamber Orchestra, a member of the celtic band, Puddingstone, and other freelance opportunities that have enriched my life. I thoroughly enjoy the other arts organizations in our community as well - the wonderful Hickory Community Theatre, the Hickory Choral Society, Hickory Art Museum and the many festivals our city sponsors.
A note about my logo....My dad was an amateur painter. His preferred medium was oil or acrylic. He favored an abstract style, with lots of texture. One of his favorite subjects was houses. He painted cityscapes, country cottages, fishing shacks, mountain houses, all kinds of houses. The banner for this web-site is created from one of his paintings. Sadly, he passed away in 1996, but I have a treasure in his paintings and I am inspired by them every day. I have to give my husband, Todd, credit. He's the one who thought I should use the paintings. I think it was an "inspired" idea.
