Honesty, Integrity and Promptness are
my watchwords! I take pride in my work and endeavor to give the best possible
service to my clients and customers at all times! I have been an elected
member of the Spartanburg Board of Realtors since 1986. As a professional
Realtor I am sworn to abide by the National Association of Realtors (NAR)
Code of Ethics. In addition, I am a Graduate of the Realtor Institute
for which I carry the GRI professional designation. The Institute conducts
comprehensive instruction in negotiation, appraisal, investment, financing,
marketing, real estate construction, professional development and brokerage
management. I am also an Accredited and Certified Buyer Representative
(ABR & CBR professional designations).
Before entering the Real Estate profession, I had a long career in Secondary
School teaching, having taught Biology and Chemistry for 30 years! Although
I was born in Gary, Indiana, I am a Magna Cum Laude graduate
of Berry College, Rome, Georgia, with undergraduate degrees in Biology
and Chemistry. I received my Masters in Teaching Degree from Converse
College, Spartanburg, SC, where I focused on a more intense study of plant
structure and function, Botany. I have also attended Indiana University
and Appalachian State University for a variety of courses.
Although I love all animals, I am what most people call a "cat person!"
I have enjoyed having pet cats most of my life and require a certain amount
of "fuzz therapy" daily! In addition to my pets, I enjoy reading
mystery/suspense novels, factual
finance and medical literature, and decorating and cooking periodicals.
I enjoy both flower and vegetable gardening. Former pastimes have included
camping, hiking and sewing!
My husband and I enjoy carpentry, plumbing, painting, wallpapering and
rewiring old houses! These mechanical skills and my teaching of energy
conservation have afforded keen insights that are valuable to me in working
with buyers and sellers. I understand the technical aspects of home ownership
that concern both men and women!
When you hire me as your Real Estate Agent, I owe you
duties similar to those of your attorney. You may expect undivided
loyalty (even above loyalty to my own interests), obedience to your
lawful requests, full disclosure of all pertinent facts, accountability,
professional care and diligence during the transaction, and total
confidentiality, even beyond the day of closing. It is said "once
a Client, always a Client," therefore, confidential information
must never be disclosed.
AS YOUR AGENT, for which a CONTRACT is required, YOU MAY RELY
ON MY INTEGRITY to advise you and negotiate for you the best deal possible,
given the conditions at the time the contract is written and brought to
closing! I look forward to hearing from you and helping you sell your
property and/or find a property that fits your needs!
