Growing up in Philadelphia, my idea of "the Shore" had always been South Jersey, having spent my childhood summers in Ocean City. It wasn't until I met my husband and he introduced me to Monmouth County that my perspective changed. After years of coming down from Hoboken to spend summers in Monmouth Beach together, we wanted 'the beach' to be our full-time home and moved to the area in February of 2012. Through involvement in the Newcomers Club, Monmouth Beach Bath & Tennis Club, Navesink Country Club, St. George's-by-the-River Church and a myriad of children's activities and organizations, it was easy to settle into and fall in love with the local lifestyle. Real estate was long a passion of mine and I transitioned from my former, New York-based career in Public Relations (where I represented a number of well-known restaurants and hotels, including the iconic Burj Al Arab in Dubai and managed multi-platform, communication campaigns for such top consumer brands as the Pepsi and Heinz Ketchup) to join Resources Real Estate because of its commitment to cutting edge marketing and exceptional branding. Buying or selling a home is a monumental financial undertaking and an experience wrought with emotion. As an agent, I hold my clients' hands through every step of the process to ensure you understand, trust and enjoy the process. I believe that having some fun together as well as maintaining a sense of humor about things is essential to creating a close partnership. A proud graduate of Northwestern University, Go Wildcats, I enjoy going out to eat (oh, the local recommendations I have for you!), celebrating all of life's moments with friends and family and re-decorating my 19th Century carriage house in Little Silver (want to know a good, local plumber or handyman to use? My Rolodex is packed) Whether you're a young family looking to buy your first home, single and looking to downsize or an investor hoping to break into the market, I look forward to helping you with your real estate adventure.
