What is Atlanta’s best-kept secret?
Although not really a secret, the views from the winding roads through Atlanta’s neighborhoods are amazing. From Riverside Drive to Tuxedo Park, up to Berkeley Lake and down to Cascade Road, our neighborhoods tell the history of this great city and connect the metro area.

What do you love most about the industry?
I love the ability to help people transition from one part of his/her life to another. A home is a place of refuge, and I am honored to be able to assist in making that home a reality.

How do you distinguish yourself from the crowd of agents?
My decisions and motives are always transparent. I like to have fun, but work hard. It is important to treat my clients with honor, dignity and respect.

What is the most difficult aspect of your job?
Managing emotions and expectations. Sometimes a seller cannot recoup the investment made in a home or have difficulty leaving happy memories. In contrast, a buyer might feel disappointed after losing a property due to multiple offers or may need to pay more to get into the right neighborhood. All problems have a solution; both sides must talk to come to an amicable agreement.

What’s your best advice for generating new leads?
Your sphere is your best lead source. Think outside of the box.
