My father was a career Army Officer and I was privileged to be able to live in Europe for six years before returning to South Carolina and graduating from USC in Columbia. I moved to Charleston immediately after graduation and have been a Charleston resident since that time. I became a licensed realtor and have been active for more than twenty years. I strive to give exceptional service to my clients and am pleased to state that many of them have become some of our best friends. My husband and I and our two long-haired dachshunds live in the West Ashley area of Charleston close to the Historic Plantations including Drayton Hall and Middleton Place. We have two grown children and their spouses and grand twins who will soon be five years old, all of whom live here in Charleston. We are active members of the Middleton Place Foundation and the Middleton Place Hounds, a local fox hunting club, and have a strong connection to the horse community in Charleston, as I was a horse owner and competitor for many years. My knowledge of the residential communities in Charleston is extensive, having been here through Charleston's evolution from a hidden gem to everyone's favorite place to visit and to call home! I love introducing newcomers to our town and helping them find their Charleston. My job does not end until we have been through the search, inspection and mortgage processes and finally have closed on the property. Call me for any of your residential real estate needs and I will put my experience to work for you.
