Babe Ruth said, “You just can’t beat the person who never gives up,” and I couldn’t agree more. That’s why I enjoy being a real estate agent. It’s a profession where persistence and hard work pay off with the reward of satisfied, happy clients.

Real estate is my third career. I was drawn to the profession because I can use my marketing and entrepreneurial skills to work with people directly. I’ve always been interested in how we make decisions. I studied psychology at Boston College to learn how the mind works, and then I earned an MBA at Johns Hopkins University to become an astute decision-maker. Fresh out of business school, I wanted to experience starting something new, so I built a company that imports goods from Latvia with wholesale distribution in the United States. I loved the challenges of working in a country that recently regained its independence, but I missed the group dynamic and pivoted to the corporate world. For 15 years, I was the marketing director for industry leaders like Citibank, St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital, and Towns Sports International.

I started my third career after pausing to raise my kids. In 2015, I joined the leading agency in Westchester County, New York. By 2017, I was a Silver Award-winner for productivity. Real estate has been a great fit. The problem-solving skills I honed as an entrepreneur and the deep knowledge of sales, pricing, and promotion I gained from marketing prepared me for the many responsibilities of a real estate agent. Most importantly, I care deeply about my clients’ needs, and I work tirelessly to earn their respect and trust. My reviews show that my clients appreciate my attention to detail and uncompromising dedication to getting the job done.

With a recent relocation from New York to the Washington metropolitan area, I am well aware of the stress and anxiety surrounding a move — be it a few miles away or across the country. I’ll help make your real estate transaction as smooth and efficient as possible. Regardless of whether you’re a first-time buyer or a seasoned investor, I will always provide you with research, guidance, and personal attention. I will ensure you can make informed real estate decisions that lead to successful transactions.
