Real Estate Agent

Real Estate has been my passion and a part of my life since I was a young girl tagging along with my father when he previewed homes. I began my official career as a real estate agent in 2011 and continued to work in the industry while my license was in referral, working on a daily basis among some of the best real estate professionals whom I studied and learned much from.


Born in Jersey City, I have lived in various beach towns along the Jersey Shore for over 55 years and am proud to call Monmouth County home. My husband is the Vice President of Construction Management for a local developer, and together we have raised our 5 children in Belmar, our home for over 24 years. Adults now, our children have degrees in Economics, Engineering, and Statistics. Our conversations often include talk of the market conditions and trends, interest rates, surveys, easements, and all things real estate. Real estate truly is my life.


To relax I like to walk the Belmar boardwalk, go to the beach, work in my garden, decorate, hike, and catch up on HGTV renovation shows. I enjoy taking day trips to discover new places in and around New Jersey and I love to travel across the country and abroad, but there truly is no place like home.

I believe everyone needs a place to call home, a place to retreat to. Whether you are a first time home buyer, looking to downsize, planning for a vacation retreat, or an investor, I can work closely with you to find just the right property. If you are thinking of selling your house, I will work diligently to market your home and get you the best price and assist you in finding your new home. As a Ward Wight Sotheby’s International agent I can even provide assistance in finding you just the right agent if moving out of the area.


I pride myself on offering you professionalism, integrity, and the ability to listen to your needs. Buying or selling a home can be very emotional, and stressful. I am committed to making the process as smooth as possible. As a lifelong resident of the Jersey Shore, I am familiar with the nuances of each of our towns and will work closely with you to find your perfect fit. Like me, I want you to love where you live!
