I have lived in the South my entire life, but having moved to South Metro Atlanta in 2001 and raising 4 children in the area, I now proudly call Georgia my home. I began my adult life as an Obstetrician and Gynecologist in central Florida. My husband and I received job opportunities in Georgia and relocated to Fayetteville and ultimately landed in Peachtree City, GA. After the birth of our 4th child, I decided to retire from medicine and become a Stay-at-Home-Mom. It wasn’t an easy decsion as I was raised to be a successful, independent career woman and I really enjoyed the relationships with my patients. Caring for their medical needs and assisting in bringing their children into the world was immensely rewarding. Once the decision was made though, I knew it was the right decision to make for our Family and although surprisingly challlenging, being a Stay-at-Home-Mom was the most enjoyable and rewarding experience of my adult life.
The time with my young children has seemingly passed so quickly. I am comforted knowing their foundations are strong and independence is abound. It was time for me to re-enter the work-force. Having been out of the practice of medicine for 10 years, returning to medicine as a career, was not a reasonable option. Having personally dabbled in real estate investments over the prior 2 decades, being a Real Estate agent, did pique my interest. What I found interesting is that a career in Real Estate is similar in many ways to practicing Obstrtrics and Gynecology. Once again, I have the opportunity to help people through a major milestone in their lives, whether its a first-time home buyer who is anxious about qualifying for their first home purchase, or a seller wanting to downsize to a smaller home after raising their children, in what can be a very emotional experience, or investors buying properties worrying about their return on investment. Having the ability to set the tone for what can be a highly stressful experience, in a calm and reassuring manner is something for which I am well-practiced.
In addition, as a former OB/Gyn, I have a unique skill set developed over many years that includes being a focused, attentive listener, and a clear communicator, acting with compassion and integrity throughout all interactions. This allows me to assisit my buyers and sellers in having a satisfying and at times even an enjoyable experience in the sale and/or purchase of the property or home.
