After 5 years as a real estate agent, I had helped dozens of relocating families and built a thriving real estate business. But I wanted to help moving families everywhere, not just in my small town. So I started building a database of other real estate agents who specialize in relocation across the U.S. and Canada. I know the skill and care it takes to help someone move to a new place from out of town, and how few agents do justice by relocaters.

So here's the story of how I went from teacher, to real estate agent, to relocation specialist:
I realized I wasn't cut out to be a teacher and my husband and I moved to SC from VA for his job as a pastor. I was living in a new town with no connections when I decided to start a career as a real estate agent. I built my business out of a passion to help other people relocating to the area move to town and make it home- just like I had. 

I'm a licensed realtor®, who built a 5 star real estate business in a new town, And now I'm here to help people relocate all over the U.S.

I'm passionate about helping people who are in the overwhelm of a relocation.

Don't fall into their trap. You think you're looking at a house online- while they're selling your contact info to multiple real estate agents.

Listen, I'm gonna give it to you straight. Agent finding sites (you know the ones) barely qualify the agents they recommend.

watching without shame:

Relocation is more than just buying a house. 

It's building a home in a place where you probably won't know many people. You won't know the good plumbers or the best neighborhoods. You won't know about the schools and the commute times. 

You need more than an agent. You need a rockstar relocation professional. 

And we know the best relocation agents across the U.S. and Canada.

I'm taking what I know about how to relocate well, and combining it with what I've learned about the real estate industry.

now that you know a little about me, it's time for you to learn more about what i do.
