Summarize yourself in a tweet.

Easy going dreamer who can't help but visualize the potential of things. I love "la bella vita" and spend several weeks in Italy every summer. I have also lived in Asia (Thailand, Taiwan and Indonesia) for over 13 years in my 20's and 30's. Travel adds spice to my life, broadens my perspective and hones my appreciation for for Asbury Park and America.

What's your favorite client story?

I had clients who wanted a two-bedroom condo large enough for their extended family and friends. As our beachfront neighborhood was largely in transition, they were leery of owning a house. But as I got to know them and understand how they wanted to use their vacation property, I had to show them a few houses near the beach and explain to them all the exciting things happening around town. Now when I walk past their beautifully restored home on the way to the boardwalk I often see them on the front porch surfboards against the wall, beach towels drying on the railing, playing music and laughing with friends. A client doesn't always "get" AP right away but the realtor who does makes all the difference.

You have a day off in Asbury. What do you do?

Love to hang out with my husband on our little boat off the Asbury Park beach.

What's the architectural detail your eye always gravitates towards?

The front porch. Always.

Favorite community organization.

Asbury Park's Environmental Shade Tree Commission has done fantastic working creating gorgeous perennial and vegetable gardens throughout our city - often in the most unexpected places!

What differentiates you within real estate?

My family has lived in Asbury Park for generations and I have owned my own home in town since 2002. My strength is that I "get" Asbury. I know the neighborhoods, stay on top of what is happening and love sharing this knowledge with newcomers to town. I'm an excelling resource for all things real estate and have extensive contacts with architects, contractors, landscapers and handy people in various trades.

One last thing...

Happily married for 20 years to guy who makes me laugh every single day.

What to expect.
