How did you get into real estate and what do you love about it?
After a 10 year career as an early childhood educator, I took on a much more challenging position as a stay at home mom, That role was a LOT. In order to re-activate my brain and re-enter the civilized world, I embarked on a journey in real estate. My kids say that because I spent so much time worrying about my clients, I stopped torturing them... it was a match made in heaven and a win-win for all!
What made you want to live in your current area?
The age-old story. I met a boy.
What makes living in your area so special?
I live in Cranford, which is known as a "modern-day Mayberry". The town is a delightful mix of great architecture, fantastic mom-and-pop shops, interesting restaurants, and a strong school system. Wonderful people live here, and I am grateful for the opportunity to call Cranford "home". It also doesn't hurt that the #1 Dive Bar in NJ is right down the street from my house!
