When was your first inspection?

My first home inspection was on 9/11.

How long in real estate?

Since before my voice changed; I grew up in my parents' real estate office in Culpeper.

Why'd you go to VMI?

I had the foresight to know it would be one of the best decisions I've ever made.

Why ride a bicycle?

It connects me to the area, and is mental and physical therapy.

Worst trait?

I'm opinionated. I share and defend my opinions.

Why real estate?

Because I absolutely love it. Every day is new. Every client and day is different.
