Home is a feeling.
I often watch as buyers tour homes, moving from room to room discussing each detail – Hardwood floors or carpet? Tray ceilings or coffered? Master on the first floor or second? Of course these details matter – a house is likely the single largest investment of a person’s life and these details affect the value immensely. But years after those choices are made, the most important thing is how the home makes you feel.
As a child, I remember watching in fascination as the ranch house being built for my family took shape. Each afternoon after the subcontractors left, I rode my bike to the site to survey the day’s work. One afternoon, a summer thunderstorm blew in and I quickly ran inside the nearly completed house to wait. All these years later, I remember the sound and feel of the front door closing firmly into place. I felt safe. I felt home. That experience of watching my childhood home grow from the ground up planted a seed that continues to be watered today. My knowledge and experience in home construction and purchasing is still growing, and is put to use helping families from literally all over the world find home.
As a Realtor, I don’t take lightly the responsibility of helping my clients. The Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area has so much to offer, but the process of choosing the right home and location for your lifestyle can be daunting. Is new construction right for you, or is a home on the resale market a better fit? City or suburb? Single family or condo? Experience has taught me the right questions to ask, and the appropriate cues for which to look. I’ve learned when to recommend a client take a step back and sleep on a decision, or when the situation calls for the slightest nudge. Each recommendation stems from solid knowledge of the market. My goal is always your best interest. After all, home is my business.
The Triangle has been my home since 1989. My husband and I still live in Southern Wake County with our dog Carly Joe and cat, Snowflake. Our children are frequent visitors – Kelsie, who lives in Raleigh with her dogs Mason and Murphy, and our son Jonathan, his wife Katie and our granddaughter Claudette, who live in Durham. I would love to help you find your home here in the Triangle, or help you sell your current home. Please enjoy searching on my website, and don’t hesitate to reach out if I may help you in any way. It would be my pleasure to help you find home.
