Tell us about your real estate background.
After working for many years as a Human Resources Manager, I decided that I loved the people, but was continuously frustrated with the decreasing presence of corporate ethics. My good friend is a very successful real estate agent with a growing number of new construction subdivisions, so with her encouragement and my husband’s ok, I got my license, quit my job and jumped in with both feet! I enjoyed many successful years selling new homes in beautiful Westland Homes communities located in both Cobb and Paulding Counties. I have also been fortunate enough to have a nice resale business in the Northwest Georgia area.
What has been your most rewarding experience in real estate so far?
I felt rewarded when I was at a community in Dallas, GA and we were selling many of our houses to buyers from Florida, New Jersey and New York. Our floor plans were large and we offered beautiful upgrades, and our buyers were so excited to find so much house for the money. They were paying more in taxes and insurance alone than what their total monthly mortgage would be here. This meant I really had to win over their confidence because it just sounded too good to be true. In the end, it was so rewarding to see them so happy in their new homes and also to watch the neighborhood take shape one house at a time.
What is your favorite thing to do in Atlanta or the surrounding areas?
Anything with my family! We are true North Paulding Wolfpack fans during football season and we enjoy boating on Lake Allatoona in the spring, summer and fall.
We are excited about Mountain Park breaking ground on more houses soon. Tell us about some of the features we can expect in these homes.
The sound of new Symphony Homes being built in Mountain Park will be music to my ears! I am so excited about our awesome floor plans and 25 beautiful basement Lots! This community is convenient to everything…great Cobb County schools, shopping, parks, downtown Acworth, wonderful restaurants…I could go on and on.
What do you like best about working with Morris and Raper Real Estate Consultants?
I am new with Morris and Raper Real Estate Consultants, but so far everyone has been so helpful and friendly. I have worked with Darren Price (Managing Director) for many years, and I respect his knowledge of the business and know that he is always there to help me when I need it! Everyone questions the distance to the office from my home office in North Paulding County, but I really enjoy a good excuse to get back downtown a couple of times a month. My husband, myself and both our parents are native Atlantans, and I would never want to lose touch with the city and all it has to offer!
