Do you know what was special about Steve Jobs? What was his "One Thing"?More Less
Steve's "One Thing" was what Apple products offer to the consumer, the "end user". This laser like focus propelled the development of the incredible interfaces that are phenomenally user friendly for consumers of all age groups.
This left me wondering: What am I offering? How can I help my clients to make the best use of their time and mine to meet their needs and exceed their expectations? The realization hit me that I haven't told my story and how well my experience and skill set make me a really good realtor.
I was born in DC and grew up in Vienna. My dad is an architect, my mom is a landscape and gardening expert, my brothers own their own construction company. I have been steeped in and absorbed a love for the creative process, for homes, gardens, the area, neighborhoods, and environments in which we live. I love Virginia and believe it is one of the best places to live in the country. We have four seasons, beautiful country side, access to the best schools and all that DC has to offer. Add in a strong economy, and the equation is complete. (Yeah, traffic can be a pain, but all in all we are blessed to call NOVA home!)
Sales and marketing have been my passion. I have always worked on commission, relying solely on my work ethic to bring e success. Beginning at 16, I worked for Woodward and Lothrop, a Washington DC institution, at Tysons Corner. After putting myself through George Mason University's School of Management, my career rocketed into communications and pharmaceuticals. I took a brief hiatus to start a family. It didn't take a lot of thinking to land me in a field close to my heart, real estate.. I love architecture, remodeling, design, and even just looking at homes.
In order to succeed, I have had to work smart and keep an edge up on my competitors. I know the local market like the back of my hand. Having bought, sold, and remodeled a number of my own properties, I understand the process from my client's perspective. I have a great team here at Keller Williams Fairfax Gateway. I attend regular training regarding contractual and legal aspects of real estate. Helping clients to buy and sell homes, marketing properties, negotiating, constantly learning, no two transactions the same. Perfect fit!
