After having a keen interest for real estate the opportunity to become a real estate salesperson provided me with a new challenge I needed in life. This is an industry that works directly with people and I believe that my trustworthy and personable personality is held in high regard. I was born in Westport and have good local knowledge and enjoy being part of the community and all it has to offer.
Before real estate, I worked in the retail industry for 8 years, four of them I was manager of a local electrical store, then had five years off to have my two beautiful girls.
I am a new, energetic and approachable salesperson. I have the enthusiasm that is needed to achieve exceptional results in this industry and I am proud to be member of a supportive and successful team.
