I am firm believer in the American Dream including real property ownership and small business ownership. I believe that once we set our intentions there is not much we cannot accomplish. Yes, it takes discipline. Yes, it takes commitment. Yes, there are sometimes disappointments and doubt along the way. However, I am here to tell you that if you "just keep swimming" you will get there. Let me help you get there. Visit my website at

Raised in western Massachusetts, I joined the United States Army while still in high school and remained enlisted until the summer of 1997. I was stationed in Texas and fell in love with the Lone Star State. I also fell for a fellow soldier who was from Lubbock, Texas. I didn't know where or what a Lubbock was, but my parents did. They were quick to point out that Lubbock, Texas was the hometown of famed rock & roller Buddy Holly.

We purchased our first home using a VA loan. We were between permanent party locations, had collected three dogs, and literally had one week to find a suitable house. With the help of a great real estate agent and a savvy lender we did it. We had no closing costs, and our interest rate was 9%. We thought we were in high cotton.

After leaving active duty we relocated to Lubbock, Texas. In the next twenty years I earned two degrees from Texas Tech University (B.A. in English and a B.B.A. in Accounting), raised a family, collected more animals, bought more property, sold more property, went through a divorce, got remarried, opened a small HVAC business with my second husband, and eventually earned first a real estate salesperson license and then a broker license. Life is crazy, and I have learned to love every minute of it.
