Background/About Me

I'm a local, born and raised in the DC metro area. Over the years I've lived in Fairfax, Alexandria, DC, and Arlington. After all this time in the area, I know the neighborhoods very well. I own local properties and am always willing to share my best practices on being a landlord.

I graduated from Lake Braddock Secondary School in Burke, VA in 1994, left the area for college, graduating from The Pennsylvania State University in 1998 with a Bachelor of Science in Information Systems. I then spent the next 8 years in the IT field, but am so glad I made the change to Real Estate, I love what I do! I currently reside in Arlington with my wonderful family Jennifer, Jonah(April 2015) and Siena (April 2018).
