Integrity, Commitment, Knowledge, Experience, and Results; these core values serve as the pillars to my successful real estate business. I am a 25-year, full time Realtor with Coldwell Banker Kinard Realty (formerly Coldwell Banker Hamilton & Associates).I obtained my real estate license in 1997 and upgraded to a broker's license ten years later in 2007, which has allowed me to experience all day to day operations of a real estate company in both residential and commercial capacities. I have served as a managing broker, property manager, relocation director, and office manager.Real estate has always been my passion. I've personally taken on owning, flipping, being a landlord, investing, and even restoring, owning, and operating a Bed and Breakfast right here in Cleveland, TN.Within our local Association of Realtors, I have served as a member and chairperson on several committees including Member Services, Community Outreach, and MLS Advisory. I've also taken on leadership as an MLS Director and Association Director. These opportunities have gained me a plethora of knowledge about the ins and outs of successfully running an Association.I have committed myself to maintaining a high level of continued education, earning the Graduate Realtor Institute, At Home With Diversity, Realtors Commitment to Excellence, Broker, and Cartus Relocation Expert Designations. I am also proud to have consistently earned the Coldwell Banker International Diamond Society and Mult-Million Dollar Producer Awards within my company. In 2020, I was humbled to be selected as the 2020 RCAR Realtor of the Year Award Winner. Currently, I am a member of the following Associations of Realtors: Tennessee (TAR), National (NAR), River Counties (RCAR), Greater Chattanooga Realtors, and the Knoxville Area Association of Realtors. I'm an active member of the Cleveland/Bradley County Chamber of Commerce, Ocoee Regional Builder's Association, and MainStreet Cleveland.Privately, I have been married to my loving husband and retired Army Veteran, David, for almost 42 years. We have 3 children, 4 grandchildren, and love spending time with family and traveling all over. With David's military background, I understand the processes, expectations, challenges, and solutions that the military lifestyle presents. I've traveled extensively throughout Europe and Central America, even building and owning a home in Costa Rica, but Cleveland, Tennessee has always been "HOME."Coldwell Banker Kinard Realty shares my commitment to offering the most comprehensive and professional marketing, cutting-edge technology, and expert knowledge.
