And here we go!

Most people say, your money is safest when it's in Real Estate. I agree with them! But the process....can be rough when you're doing it alone. Call a professional. Call me! And that's where I come in. Making people happy to pass their keys along to the buyer or seeing my buyers get those special keys are what make my days worth it.

I am a people-oriented real estate agent who helps homebuyers and sellers from Putnam County to Montauk! If you’re looking for an agent with patience, perseverance, and a passion for helping people, you’ve just found her!

I am a native New Yorker and I chose real estate as a career path, because it allows me to use my customer service skills that can sometimes be lost in this industry. It also gives me a chance to serve the community I love. I’ve always been interested in real estate, and now I’m fortunate enough to do it for a living.
