New Home Sales Agent

Living in the Upstate for more than 26 years, I have a special kind of love for the area. Seeing the Upstate transform and grow into what is seen today draws a different appreciation for the growth and development of Greenville and Spartanburg.  The Architectural change of the downtown areas is not only amazing, but also creates renewed energy to me and those living here.

A career in Real Estate has led me to learning so much about the Upstate that is now knowledge and experience in which I can pass along to anyone looking to create their own Upstate South Carolina story.  Specializing in New Construction for over 9 years, I can make this a learning experience not just for buyers, but also cooperating agents.  Having personally built multiple homes with SK Builders, I truly believe in what I sell.  Being able to explain the process is of utmost importance when it comes to assisting. Selling in numerous community locations from Powdersville to Chesnee and
from Travelers Rest to Fountain has given an additional resource for those who are working with me.  Agent network is extremely important to me and the way I keep agents calling is knowing the product.  I have spent countless hours researching not just my own product, but the product of others just so I know how I can set myself apart from the competition. 

In addition to my love for the Upstate, those who know me know that a have an excitable type of love for college football and more specific The University of Alabama.  Diehard fan since the early 80’s, I have truly seen the highs and lows which can also be said for the Real Estate industry.  Additional hobbies would include fishing, youth baseball and spending time with my family.
