Why I Sell Real Estate...

I am an Associate Broker and Company owner of Momentum Realty. Momentum is a privately owned brokerage that has been helping clients buy and sell residential real estate in Northern Virginia since 2005.

I had ‘retired’ from corporate America and was a stay-at-home mom, finding my friends new homes just for fun when I decided to go into the business. That was back in 2002 and I have been selling real estate in Northern Virginia ever since! I provide residential listing and buying services to my clients I have extensive experience in the Luxury Homes market, the First Time Buyer market and specialize in the Fairfax County areas of Reston, Great Falls, Herndon, Vienna, Oakton as well as Eastern Loudoun County, including Potomac Falls, Sterling, Ashburn and Leesbug. I also work in Arlington County and the Falls Church area.
