Realtor, Rental Agent

I’ve been a Philadelphia resident for over three decades, and I’ve come to know the personality of our special neighborhoods. My goal as a rental agent is to make people smile; navigating clients to find their closest fit.  

Even before I became an agent 20 years ago, I was drawn to the industry through my father’s stories, both positive and negative, of life in real estate and his incredible business acumen. Some of my first memories revolve around my father’s office, smelling cigar smoke and leather, listening to him conduct business at the closing table and falling in love with plat maps. My life path eventually led me back to the closing table after years of business experience in other areas.

You can say I’m a jack of all trades. Before becoming an agent, I was in marketing, merchandising, financial services, real estate contract review/ sales/marketing and mutual fund regulation administration. Somewhere in there I even had time to attend Temple University Beasley School of Law to earn my law degree. This comes in handy when reading a contract for clients!

When I moved here 32 years ago from New York. I settled in Society Hill where I still live with my husband Charlie and greyhound rescue, Fiona Finch. When I’m not trying my skills as an amateur chef, you can find me at one of my favorite neighborhood spots, Talulah’s Daily, Fat Salmon, or South Street Souvlaki.

In my down time, you might find me volunteering at Greyhound Friends of NJ (Rescue) or selling memorial poppies in support of veterans as an associate member of the Benjamin Franklin American Legion Post #405. I love to travel, a passion that has taken me to some of my favorite spots on the globe like Israel, Antarctica, and Galapagos Islands.

Let me know how I can help.
