A Richmond native, I've worked in this city’s housing market since 1978, as both a Realtor and as a licensed appraiser. I know Richmond's West End and Southside neighborhoods very well. I also have extensive experience throughout the City and its surrounding counties.
As an appraiser, I've worked closely with lenders and understand their requirements for both buyers and sellers. More importantly, I know how to value a home.
My appraisal experience includes estimating property values for the purpose of renovations and tax abatement for the City of Richmond's Tax Abatement Program.
Before getting into real estate, I was a teacher in Richmond's St. Christopher's School for ten years, earning a Masters Degree in Education from VCU.
The combination of Realtor/Appraiser results in a stronger agent with a much more extensive knowledge of the value of residential property. Determining the value of a property quickly and competently is the first step to any process that involves buying or selling a home.
