I have been a Realtor since 2004, serving the Northwest part of Philadelphia and the eastern part of Montgomery County. A resident of Northwest Philly and the surrounding suburbs since 1989, I have recently joined the team at Weichert Realtors - McCarthy Associates because of it's involvement in the local community and it's great reputation for honesty and professional responsibility.
After earning my masters degree in social work, I embarked on a 35-year career in hospital social work. I worked first in a dialysis center, and then at several of the large teaching hospitals in Philadelphia, ending my social work career as the Director of Social Work for the Albert Einstein Healthcare Network. My transition into the field of real estate was a natural - I'm still working with people as they face a change in their lives. I am proud to be able to use my professional skills to assess what it is that people need and then to work with them to achieve their goals.
Originally from the Boston area, I have made Philly my home since 1980. I have bought and sold 6 houses of my own during that time. I've been there - both a Buyer and a Seller; I understand the experience from both points of view.
A single mother of 2 daughters and a foster daughter, I have lived on the Main Line, Overbrook, Mt. Airy, German town, and Elkins Park, and I know the area well. My children attended both private and public schools. I have always volunteered my time to a variety of non-profit community organizations, including the Germantown Jewish Centre, Ralston's My Way, Center in the Park, Mt. Airy USA, Hosts for Hospitals, and Dwight Evans' annual housing conferences.
I currently live in East Falls with my 2 beagles and a cockatiel. My daughter, Heidi, is married and the mother of 2 in Australia. Meg is married and mother of 2 in Marlton, NJ, and my daughter, Adina, lives in Mt. Airy and is the owner of the popular pet-care company, Queenie's Pets.
I encourage you to contact me to discuss your real estate needs and to get to know me before you commit to me as YOUR REALTOR!
