We all know when it comes time to buy or sell a home trying to decide WHICH real estate agent to hire is as difficult as deciding should you use a real estate agent at all. So first let me tell you a little about myself from the personal side.
I am not a native of Georgia although my husband and I moved here over 28 years ago (Ouch! I am dating myself). I am originally (very originally) from Michigan. However starting very early on, my family moved several times throughout my childhood. I've lived in Massachusetts, Iowa, Kansas and Georgia.And like many of you, my heart is here in the South.
Since our arrival in Atlanta, we have called several areas home: Clarkston, Dunwoody, Lawrenceville and ultimately Suwanee. We have owned only two homes; and have lived in our current home for over 23 years - Strange huh?
I am often asked whether we move a lot since I look at so many houses; and, they are always very surprised to find out we have been in the same home for so long. But in raising our daughter and son we made the conscious decision to stay put and raise them in one place; and as such, they both attended Gwinnett County schools.
At the time they started school, the ONLY elementary school in Suwanee was Suwanee Elementary. They continued on to Lanier Middle School. And I always laugh because for most of us our old almamatar doesn't get demolished until we are old enough to tell tales to our kids. But - so much for progress -Lanier Middle School has been torn down and has been replaced with a beautiful new high school, Lanier High School - which opened fall of 2010.
Both of our children finished out their education at North Gwinnett High School. Our daughter is out in the working world now and our son is finishing up college at West Georgia on a baseball scholarship.
Our life has been busy and some times I have to stop and take pause and wonder where did all the time go! Our life has had its ups and downs; and, peaks and valleys just like every one else. However, it is the ups and downs, the peaks and valleys, that I believe, help me to connect with the people I meet as a REALTOR®.
I find in working with every client, it is my nature to blend my own personal journey to my professional work as a REALTOR®. I take to heart the importance of finding the perfect home for you and your family - while being able to connect with your emotions and realizing the stress that is common during the home selling process.
And when our journey as client and REALTOR® has ended, it is my hope I've created a new relationship that will last a life time.
