My Philosophy

"I believe it is my job to create an environment that allows agents to achieve the goals they set. As a company, we must provide the management, marketing, and administrative support that allows our agents to succeed."

About Me

I graduated from the University of Delaware with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration and began my real estate career in 1989. I joined Patterson-Schwartz in 1993 and have been the Sales Manager of the Elkton Sales Center since it opened in 2005. I have also managed our Newark, DE Sales Center since 1997. I am licensed in Delaware, Maryland and Pennsylvania.

In partnership with David Watlington, the Middletown Sales Manager, we hold new agent training, joint sales meetings, social events, and other training activities.

Currently, I serve on the Professional Standards Committee for the Cecil County Board of REALTORS® and previously served on the same committee for the New Castle County Board of REALTORS®. I am also an instructor for the Delaware School of Real Estate teaching pre-licensing and continuing education classes. In my roles as an instructor and Sales Manager of two offices, I have trained many of the top-producing agents in today’s real estate market.

During my career, I have personally received of several sales awards, including Rookie of the Year in 1989 from B. Gary Scott, Inc., Lifetime Member of the New Castle County Board of REALTORS® Multimillion Dollar Club and The Realty Alliance for the past 14 years.

I am actively involved in our local community. Currently, I serve on the Executive Committee and Development Committee of the New Castle Historical Society. In 2010, I was the recipient of the Community Service Award by the Cecil County Board of REALTORS®.

My Philosophy

"It is imperative that newly licensed agents are provided with training and support when entering the Real Estate industry. I believe the training we offer and the support we provide to all of our agents is why we were voted one of the best places to work in Delaware."

About Me

I earned my Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Delaware in 1998. Upon graduation I joined First USA Bank as a Unit Specialist responsible for supporting employee goals, ensuring card member satisfaction and minimizing risk. In 2000, I became an Operations Manager at PFPC Global Fund Services and was responsible for corporate client satisfaction and employee development.

In 2003, I joined Patterson-Schwartz Real Estate as a Sales Associate. In 2007, I became Assistant Sales Manager and Director of Training for the Newark Sales Center. I am licensed as a Broker in Delaware and as a Residential Sales Associate in Maryland and Pennsylvania. As the Director of Training for the Newark Sales Center, my focus is to ensure that the transition to real estate sales is an easy one for newly licensed agents. I continue to list and sell and enjoy supporting my client’s dreams of home ownership and value the relationships that are created during each sale. "It really gives me great satisfaction to help individuals and families reach their real estate goals."
