At a very young age, I developed my fondness for real estate and all things lovely about a home. In addition the the love of architecture and aesthetics, I fell in love with what a home represents. Thanks to my Midwestern mama with a Southern soul, to me, “home” represented a magical place of security, peace and serenity. It was a place to dream and plan with those who love you the most. I remember building pillow forts and practicing my selling techniques with my stuffed animals and dolls. I would fashion “for sale” signs with my Lite-Brite and I used my Etch A Sketch to draw up contracts. This passion has stuck with me from childhood through adulthood.

After my university studies in Tulsa, I moved to Houston, TX and in 1994, I earned my real estate license. I assisted buyers and sellers with Gulf Coast Real Estate Company until I gave birth to the first of my three incredible children. Over the next several years, I had the opportunity to live in many exciting and interesting places in our country before returning to Oklahoma to be near family. It was when I landed back in the red dirt of the heartland that I decided to pick up my real estate career again, as my children were all in school and my familial support system was strong.

In my first year back in the saddle, I was awarded “Rookie of the Year” in the “Mid States Region” of Re/Max with a gross closed volume of over 6 million helping over 60 families achieve their real estate goals in that year! Within a few years, I became the CEO and Principal Broker of Keller Williams in Oklahoma City, then Fayetteville, Arkansas until Tennessee called. It was like I was being called home to a home that I had never visited. It was something about the music, the art, the food, and the people. Memphis was to become the new home for my family. We quickly found our tribe, our church home, and our favorite places to spend time.

Because of the love for our beloved adopted city that has lasted for more than a decade, the desire to serve our community is a very strong pull. One in which our entire family of five is involved. We feel blessed to help others call Memphis and the 901 home, and doubly blessed to have created a real estate team with my husband and children to live out this purpose.

Our real estate team slogan is also our family motto, “It’s a 901derful day to live the 901derful life” and that is what we intend to help our community do!

Because of the love for our beloved adopted city that has lasted for more than a decade, the desire to serve our community is a very strong pull.  One in which our entire family of five is involved. We feel blessed to help others call Memphis and the 901 home, and doubly blessed to have created a real estate team with my husband and children to live out this purpose.

Our real estate team slogan is also our family motto, “It’s a 901derful day to live the 901derful life” and that is what we intend to help our community do!

Being the child in a real estate family definitely has it perks. For instance, I knew what a coffered ceiling was by the time I was 6. At
9 years old, I could deliver a winning listing presentation to a classroom full of students, persuading my teacher to list her home with my family based on our “aggressive marketing platform”. My parents not only served sellers and buyers in our community, they flipped houses while we lived in them. My sibs and I thought that canvas drop cloths, ladders and paint rollers were the norm in interior decor. What fun we had as children watching our homes transform from a sow's ear into a silk purse (as mama used to say).

I began working a summer job in the real estate company where my mom served as the broker at the age of 14, assisting with document storage. I continued working part time and during the summers through middle and high school. After graduating from Houston High School in Germantown, TN, I moved to Starkville, MS to study Psychology and Sociology at Mississippi State University. After completing my studies, I returned to Memphis to join my family in our real estate business and I serve as the “Contract to Close Manager”. The analogy I recently overheard my parents using at a networking event that describes our team structure is, “Mama catches them, Dad cleans them and I cook them”. You will not see me on the front end of the transaction, and I am the one who brings it home.

It is our family’s purpose to serve our community and we do that through helping others make Memphis their home. Reach out to me if you want to know anything about our fabulous city from where to go for a fantastic brunch to opportunities for volunteerism. Together we all can make Memphis her best yet!

Let’s live our best life, the 901derful life!
