Founded in 1983 and based in Austin, Texas, Keller Williams’ first agent, Gary Gentry, wrote the first offer for $55,000 and the starting roster of 32 agents went on to close $28 million in volume. After an auspicious start, the young company’s agents became prime recruits and a few top producers left to work with competitors, leaving the balance of the initial team to struggle in a tough Texas economy. “With the kind of training support that Gary [Keller] and Joe [Williams] gave us, we were constantly learning how to adapt to a different market. On a daily basis, we would discuss what the market was doing and what we needed to do to grow our businesses. A lot of our policy and culture was developed during this time.” Fast forward to 2017 at the yearly Family Reunion event in February, the next phase of Keller Williams’ evolution was announced: a commitment to developing the real estate platform that buyers and sellers prefer. As a result of its growth and a strong vision cast by Keller, the company planned to invest $1 billion in technology.

I became a licensed realtor in 1997 and over the years I have worked with some of the most well-known real estate companies in the central Ohio area. In the fall of 2014, I became affiliated with Keller Williams. Keller Williams is a longtime and well-known real estate leader in the central Ohio area. It has a large market share in the area and offers an innovative and enriching environment.
My roots in the central Ohio community are long-standing. My husband and I currently live in a log cabin on our “Wannabee Farm” just outside of Columbus. Our farm mates include chickens, goats, an assortment of cats and our dogs, Honey and Hercules. Tuti, the little goat who sometimes appears on my flyers and postcards, actually lived in our house for several weeks when she first came to us. The upside for you is if your household includes animals, I’m up for it as I’ve always been an animal lover.
Without a doubt, the best part of my job has always been becoming friends with the clients. Spending time with nice people takes the “work” out of real estate. Over the years I’ve received many achievement awards and done well for which I’m thankful. One of the best ways I’ve found to share my thanks is by donating to charities of my clients’ choosing. It’s a way to recognize the trust they placed in me, as well as do some good in the world.
My philosophy and approach to my business are very personal to me. It is my goal is to give you the most information so you can make an informed decision. In addition, I will negotiate expertly on your behalf and protect your interests.
I appreciate the trust and friendship that comes along with helping folks make life changing decisions that are an inherent part of home selling and buying. I am here to help you with your journey.
