Tell us about yourself!

I am a lifelong resident of the Jersey Shore, born and raised in Toms River! Sharing my knowledge and expertise of the area is just one way I build great relationships with my clients. I am committed to helping you achieve your buying, selling, and investing goals!  

I graduated from Toms River High School North in 2001 and continued on to get my BS in Business Management and Marketing from Kean University. From there I worked in various fields including office management, education, and for a new construction development company before following my passions to real estate. I am excited to be part of the Ocean 6 team and to work with the best of the best in the industry. I bring dedication, professionalism, and business experience to every transaction to ensure a smooth process for all.

I now raise my 3 sons in the same town I grew up in, and its an honor to continue to support local businesses and the growth of the Jersey Shore.  Call me and I will happily guide you through the process of your next move!

What made you want to become a realtor?

I have always been interested in real estate, following the market, shopping for homes online just to see whats out there. After working in various areas of business, I finally decided to take my hobby and turn it into a career.

What’s your favorite part of the job?

My favorite part about this job is that it involves two of my favorite things: helping people and organization!  I love figuring out strategies and managing details while helping people make one of the biggest purchases they will ever have to make.

What’s your best piece of advice for a first-time homebuyer?

Again two things:  1. Start working with a mortgage expert before you start shopping for a home. It’s important to know what you can realistically afford before going out and finding a home you love. 2.  Work with a really AWESOME real estate agent who will be there to guide and support you every step of the way!
