FUN FACTS

  • Being a broker is always full of surprises. Every day is different!
  • Charlotte is on the move and I love the challenges that change brings to the city.
  • I have three favorite vacation spots—Ocean City, NJ, Litchfield, SC, and Fortaleza, Brazil. I have wonderful summer memories from these three places.
  • Painting is my favorite pastime. I do large oil urban landscapes. I receive much of my inspiration from New York; however, I have been featured in the Business Journal for several years with my Charlotte urban scenes.
  • Something no one knows about me — I would love to be the opening pitcher for the Philadelphia Phillies in the World Series.

ABOUT ME

Working at Cottingham Chalk has been a wonderful experience. Everyone’s life is full of ups and downs and my favorite thing about being a broker is hearing my client’s stories. Helping clients through the stress of buying and selling a home is a rewarding experience. No sale is like the previous sale!

Before joining Cottingham Chalk, I worked for a non-profit and organized an event called HomeArama. It was one of the largest custom home shows in the Southeast. Through this event, I became involved with fundraising for the Levine Children’s Hospital. In addition, I was a lobbyist to bring an Intermediate Care Facility built in Charlotte for special needs people. I am a strong believer in giving back to the community that serves your needs.

I spend my free time painting urban landscapes. I am active in the Charlotte arts scene and can be found at most gallery crawls. I show at Providence Gallery and participate in a number of art fund raisers in the community.

I have three great sons and four fantastic grandchildren. And I have a rescue dog named Oreo—she is my first girl child! I was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA and graduated from Centenary University in Hackettstown, NJ. In addition, I have a BS in Communications from Queens University.

6256 Sharon Hills Road
$3,675,000   Active
Subdivision: Sharon Hills

Follow the long drive up to the top of the gentle hill and you will discover a French Baroque estate, hidden on three private wooded acres in SouthPark's oldest neighborhood. Implementing timeless elements of design, Frank Smith created a house that is as comfortable as it is stunning. With the help of Joyner~Benfield and the late John Byrd, the owners preserved the natural landscape surrounding the house's more formal gardens. The symmetry of the house is reflected in its balanced placement of the pool, its patio and terraces. Elegant gas lanterns, decorative wall fountains, arched French doors, natural stones, romantic covered porches- everything is just enough and not too much. This special residence looks like it has been here for a long time, a rare find and a special opportunity.
