I have been a licensed Realtor since 1997. Before real estate I had worked 14 years at JCPenney Dept. Store as a Merchandise Assistant, with that I bring to the real estate field experience in customer service, handling objections and general sales knowledge.
In 2005 I received my broker's license after completing 260 hours of class room training, 200 credits (closed sales, listings, etc.) and passing the Pennsylvania Brokers exam. I also received my GRI (Graduate of the Realtors Institute) Designation. The GRI designation is the nations #1 Real Estate designation.

Also in 2005 I was awarded the prestigious Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) Designation by the Council of Residential Specialists, the largest not-for-profit affiliate of the National Association of Realtors.
