WHAT'S YOUR SOURCE OF PASSION FOR REAL ESTATE?
I have always loved home remodeling and decor. I have redone and lived in 12 homes in the Tri-Cities area since moving back after college. After a long time owning a ladies clothing manufacturing business (where I got my love of fabrics and color), I joined Kuper and love working with my clients to find or sell their home. I can also do staging and rearranging for my clients and the clients of other agents using my love of home design and decor. There’s rarely a more important decision that people make than purchasing a home and I love being part of that!
