I guess I could have been chef in a small bistro somewhere, or a gallery owner with my passion for art, or maybe even a landscape architect. All of those careers would have appealed to me but I found myself fascinated with houses. How they are built, who designed them, their history, who lives in them, how they are decorated and, most of all, how the families live in them. Going into someone's home is like opening a present to see the surprise inside. It is amazing how unique each home is and how differently one family lives than another.
I feel a sense of pride when entrusted with the buying or selling process of my client's most valuable asset.
I truly love what I do; helping couples find that perfect place to start a family, finding a family a larger home now that their children are teenagers, or my specialty, helping couples my age transition into the next stage of their lives. All of it gives me a deep sense of satisfaction.
I have found Charleston to be the perfect setting for my career. I don't think there is anything I don't like about Charleston. It's a great place to raise a family, pursue a career, build a business, or simply retire to the beach or golf course.
With over thirty years experience in real estate, I joined William Means in March of 2004 in search of an experienced team of like minded professionals. My fellow agents at William Means are people I am proud to work with. Our affiliation with Christie's International gives me the support and resources I need to offer the very best service to my clients. I have been involved in luxury real estate throughout my career and have established a group of clients who recommend me to their friends and family.
My list of sold properties ranges from Lowndes Grove Plantation that sold in 2007 for $6,500,000 to a small duplex on Duncan Street with a sales price of $325,000. I have closed 44 properties since March of 2004, for a total of $43,000,000 with an average sales price of over $1,000,000.
Don't get me wrong, I still dabble with my art and can turn out a pretty good meal, but, it's pretty clear to me that I'm much better at selling Charleston real estate.
