It takes an experienced agent to help buyers and sellers navigate the ups and downs of an evolving real estate market. While my expertise is real estate, my true passion is all about helping people. My passion, paired with my talent of being a savvy negotiator and combined with excellent customer service, is what makes me one of the premier agents in Ithaca and the surrounding areas year after year.
I have what it takes to go the extra mile for my clients. As a marathon runner, my energy, endurance and attention to detail are what clients need to successfully complete a home purchase or sale.
Having lived in the Ithaca area for 28 years, I know the local terrain well. I have grown to appreciate all that the region has to offer. Our diverse and well-educated population, thriving culture, safe and friendly neighborhoods, and unique natural landscape make Ithaca an ideal place to put down roots.
I have two sons that both attended Ithaca City Schools. My older son attended Smeal College of Business at Penn State and played football. He currently works in Corporate Strategy and Business Development in New York City, and has his New York State Real Estate License. My younger son attended SUNY Brockport. After his graduation in May 2016, he coached football full-time at Western New England University, and went on to play football in a pro league in Italy for two years. He coached at Ithaca College in Fall 2017 and in Fall 2018, he will attend graduate school and coach football at Heidelberg University in Tiffin, Ohio.
In the past, I have served on the Board of Directors for Challenge Workforce Solutions. I currently serve on the Community Foundation for Tompkins County’s Women’s Fund. I also serve on the Cayuga Medical Center Hospital Gala Committee. I have contributed to the Ithaca Urban Renewal Agency, and the city’s Economic Development Committee. I have been actively involved with the Ithaca Board of Realtors®, serving on the MLS & Grievance Committees. These roles have led to lifelong friendships and community contacts that make up an invaluable pool of resources that I believe helps to leverage me as one of Ithaca’s top realtors®.
I’m hardworking, honest, dedicated and loyal. As an agent, I continue to dominate the market, and was the top-selling agent, with 67 sold properties. I give each of my clients 100% effort in finding answers to their questions. I love meeting people, getting them excited about Ithaca and finding them the homes and properties that fulfill their unique needs and goals.
Whether you want to find the perfect home and neighborhood, discover that unique lakeside getaway, or locate that ideal property for additional income, I can guide you through the Ithaca real estate landscape.
