The state of Virginia became my home in 1983 after attending the University of Scranton, for the land of opportunity in the Northern Virginia area. Westwood Villas Real Estate Company gave me that opportunity and after a year I started with Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner and Smith. After working my way up the ladder into management, I decided that sales was a better direction for me and took a job selling heavy construction equipment with McLung Logan Equipment Company out of Baltimore covering the immediate DC area. After 4 years there, I left to become a "stay at home" Mom for my three children. After 12 years of staying home, it was time to get back into the work force and real estate was my passion. I started on the "Penny Yerks Team", with Weichert Realtors in 2001 and after three years, went out on my own. In March of 2008, I joined Keller Williams for more opportunities to enhance my business and clients.
