About Me

I got started in the real estate business to continue doing what I love best - helping people. I grew up in an Italian/Cuban household on Long Island where I learned to become a nurturer from the start.  From the time I started working as a teenager, I spent the majority of my time in the service industry. My career in hospitality took me to many cities across the US including Atlanta, Paradise Valley and finally Denver where I met my husband, a native of North Carolina.   My husband and I moved to the Lake Norman area from Colorado a few years ago with our twin girls, our German Shepherd Jax and Jack Russel Peanut, to be closer to family. We have a zest for exploring new places and enjoy going on day trips to different cities and taking advantage of everything they have to offer.  Whether it be a hike at Hanging Rock, trying new breweries in Asheville or enjoying a Panthers and/or Hornets game in Charlotte, we always seem to have fun wherever the day may take us.  Although I consider myself a self-proclaimed chef and enjoy cooking at home, we take advantage of the occasional night out trying one of the many restaurants and nightlife Charlotte has to offer. Being huge fan of live music, I love the abundance of concerts and festivals always going on. We are so proud to call Charlotte our home.  From sunny Summer days on Lake Norman to the savvy South Park shopping, we have found Charlotte to be one of the most eclectic cities we’ve ever been.


Family means everything in this world and I hope I make each and every person I assist in my real estate career feel just that, part of my family.  I aspire to creating an experience for my clients that will help ease them into buying a house to make a home and create memories that will last a life time.  Having moved a few times myself, I know how difficult it can be to start a new life in a place you may know little about.  I am fully dedicated to helping my clients become familiar with their new city and assist them in finding all of the necessities in life from their preferred grocery to their family dentist and everything in between.   


Whatever your heart desires, I assure you I’m committed to finding it all when you decide to make Charlotte your home.

Market Activity - October 2018
The Vitals
As with any real estate market, Charlotte's moves up and down seasonally and is influenced by the overall economic outlook. The micro-markets may perform differently, so, individual zip codes, neighborhoods or even streets may buck the overall trend. Your trusted real estate advisor can help you figure out how your home fits into the marketplace.
