I am a lifelong resident of Bristol, VA and have three grown children and several grandchildren. I am a Real Estate Professional with 13 years of experience in the industry. I sold real estate in the 80’s for approximately 5 years and then worked for United Telephone Company for almost 9 years in sales. While with United Telephone, I attended night classes and received my Bachelor’s degree in Management and Marketing in 1992. I continued with my education and received my Master’s degree in Management and Marketing in 1995 from Tusculum College in Greenville, TN.
Although I enjoyed different fields of work, my true love was and still is in real estate. I enjoy working with people and helping them accomplish one of the most important goals in life...owning their own home. I pride myself in not only finding them their perfect home but also in helping them complete the purchase. I especially enjoy first time home buyers! I have told so many of them, “If you will trust me and let me handle all the ups and downs, I can take you every step of the way.”
Even though I have been a “Million Dollar Producer”, I find helping a client buy or sell a $40, 000 home is just as important to me as a $500, 000 home. My greatest reward is sitting at the closing table and having clients thank me through tears proclaiming if it had not been for me, they might never have sold their home or purchased their dream home. I do my job honestly, fairly and ethically as I truly believe in the golden rule and a job well done. I would love the opportunity to be able to serve you in all your real estate needs!
"Shirley & Sherri,
We are so grateful to have had your help as we went through the process of finding and buying a house. We appreciate all of the great advice along the way! Thank you for helping us get into all the houses we wanted to see (and then some!) And thanks for all your assistance as we went through the steps to close and to secure the loan. We are grateful that you were good negotiators but also sweet enough that you were fun to be around. We’ll miss seeing you!"
