My Mission

Plain and simple; buying your first home can be scary. But what if I told you that it didn't have to be? By investing time to personally educate every potential buyer, I help you determine if buying a home makes sense for you and your goals. Once we determine if buying is right for you, I dedicate myself to helping you find the perfect home for your needs. I combine my knowledge of the greater Charlotte market with my unique approach, that walks you through the entire process of buying a home, fully explaining every component, so you can be confident in one of the biggest decisions of your life.

My Story

Having bought my first home in Charlotte at the age of 22, I saw firsthand how intimidating the home buying process can be. I knew through research that buying a home was right for me and that it can be a major step to building wealth in America. Yet, I noticed that not many people my age were actively seeking information to determine if this investment was possible for themselves. With all of the smart millennial minds in Charlotte, why was this the case? That's when I realized there was a knowledge gap. Buying a home is scary, especially when it is your first time, but that fear goes away when you actually understand the process. So, after nearly 5 years in the corporate world, I decided to leave in order to help others make this dream a reality.
