I have been a full-time real estate professional since 1973, spending the first 7 years in Northern VA, specializing in investor properties and first time home buyers. I moved to the Bradenton/Sarasota area of FL from 1980 until 1985, serving in general real estate and as the Marketing Director for a private island community in the Sarasota Bay.
I moved to Highlands in 1985 after finding it on a three day visit to the area. The welcoming spirit of the Highlands people, the beautiful mountains and the quaint, historic town called out to me as a perfect place to raise my children and to have a better quality of life.
I was hired to represent the developer of Highlands Falls Country Club in 1985 as the Broker-in-Charge of their Sales Division. There became the team of Johnny White, Director of Sales, Lynn Kimball and Judy Michaud (now owner of Meadows Mountain Realty). The struggling community had suffered several set-backs over the years and after developing new marketing plans and making great improvements to the club, the Highlands Falls community took off like a rocket and our team sold it out by 1996.
I purchased the real estate firm of Highlands Falls Realty and renamed the company “Signature Properties of Highlands”, working together with the same team plus additional agents. Signature Properties blossomed over the years to become the largest selling real estate firm in the Highlands-Cashiers area. In 2011, Johnny and I joined Meadows Mountain Realty. The original Highlands Falls Realty and Signature Properties team remain together today, combining the best of both firms under the name of Meadows Mountain Realty.
I reside on Satulah Mountain in Highlands with my husband, Kerry, along with our 7 dogs and a cat. My family, one son, two daughters and five grandchildren live locally. When we moved to Highlands, I never looked back. It’s fun to visit other areas of the country, but I have never been tempted to live anywhere else. There’s no place like home.
I recognize that there are many important aspects to consider when making a real estate choice. With that in mind, I listen closely to the needs and desires of each individual and work diligently to introduce you to all aspects of the Highlands/Cashiers community and its neighborhoods to find you the ideal mountain property. However, my job does not end there. I will guide you step-by-step through the closing process and after your purchase, I will go the extra mile to further familiarize you with professional and personal services, as well as activities, shopping, health care and other essentials.
Should you decide to sell your mountain property, I hope you will consider me and Meadows Mountain Realty to market your real estate. Between our state-of-the-art website, and my 38 years of real estate experience, I am confident that you will be satisfied with my services. I will put it in writing that: "You may cancel your listing at any time during the listing period should the services of Meadows Mountain Realty not meet with your expectations".
