Did you grow up around Northern VA? Yes. I grew up in Falls Church, went to Marshall High School, and graduated from Radford University. After college, I lived all over the area, including Fairfax, Reston, Vienna, and have been in Arlington for the last 17 years
How long have you been a real estate agent?
How did you get into real estate?
I grew up around a family-owned construction business before going off to college, and I had an interest in real estate from the beginning. I pivoted from my corporate sales/business development job into real estate and contracting right after 9.11.2001. It seemed a change was needed. The idea of helping people build wealth through real estate was exciting. I was making my own real estate investments at that time, so I knew I could share that valuable insight and experience with my clients. For most people, buying or selling a home is the largest and most important financial transaction they’ll have in their lifetimes, and I liked the idea of helping them with that.
As a Realtor, how are you uniquely positioned to serve home buyers and sellers?
Well, first, I’ve got a very diverse real estate and sales background with experience in corporate sales, home building, real estate investing, property management, and years of owning my own residential painting & cleaning company. This broad range of experience allows me to provide my clients with valuable insight during the process and helps me guide them through the many decisions they’ll need to make. Secondly, because I own a painting and cleaning company (Merrifield Paint & Design / The Maid Source), I’m uniquely positioned to help my clients get a house ready for sale or paint a newly purchased home without involving the contractors typically needed for these services. This means fewer people involved, lower costs, easier communication, and happier clients.
