FUN FACTS

  • Why did I join Cottingham Chalk? Well, I’m not sure I really had a choice, haha…it’s in the blood!

  • All of my family is in Charlotte which is one reason I love living here and why I will never leave.

  • One of my favorite vacation spots is La Corso Casa in Torch Lake, Michigan. My husband, Michael’s family has a cottage on the lake where we go every summer. There is a bet every year as to whether I’ll get in the water…it’s beautiful but freezing! I always make the plunge.
  • During my free time I enjoy hanging out with my son, Patrick. I’m soaking up the “mommy too” phase, where he wants me to do everything with him.
  • My husband and I met on a blind date. He told his dad he was going to marry me the day after we met!

ABOUT ME

For as long as I can remember, I knew I wanted to be a Realtor. My dad, Dan and John opened Cottingham Chalk before I was born, so, I guess you could say I was born into real estate. After graduating from UNC Chapel Hill in 2007, it was game time. I actually think I was lucky to enter this business during a downturn because it allowed me to learn the market from all angles and better appreciate the successes I’ve achieved over the years.

I’ve always been a bit of a perfectionist with high expectations and strong determination. I treat each client with equal enthusiasm and dedication, with a goal of developing life-long relationships. Having grown up in this great city, I offer a unique perspective to my clients, from the inside scoop on certain houses and neighborhoods to the best Mexican restaurant in town. I love what I do.

Real estate is 24/7, but I make sure to find time for philanthropy, most recently through Heart Math Tutoring at my neighborhood elementary school. Charlotte has given so much to me, it’s fulfilling to give a little back.
