I graduated from Georgia Tech in 1985 as an Industrial and Systems Engineer. Before entering the real estate field in 1996, I had been designing and installing computer systems while focusing on Productivity Improvement and Quality Management. I spent much of my time managing projects and interacting with high level management. This gave me an excellent opportunity to build my interpersonal and financial management skills.
During that time I was actively participating in many real estate transactions both with and without real estate professionals. It seemed that combining my experience in real estate, from an owner’s perspective, along with my technology background, I could effectively assist homeowners in maximizing their real estate objectives.
I believe in helping people meet their needs, not mine. I am very service oriented and strongly believe in Integrity Selling, which provides a congruence of knowledge, skills, and values. In support of my values, I have affiliated myself with an office that meets my high standards of service and is recognized both locally and nationally as putting the client first.
I have two adopted children and understand those issues important to families such as schools and neighborhood support. My daughter Zhanna is from Kazakhstan, and my son Max is from Peru. Horses have recently become very important in the life of my daughter and I. We have two horses, stabled about 45 minutes outside of Atlanta. “Duke”, a Missouri Fox Trotter and “Coke”, a Tennessee Walker.
