What do you do to relax when you’re stressed? I walk when I am stressed.

If you could have lunch with a well-known figure (living or not), who would it be and why? Princess Diana. As a young girl I admired her sophistication and gentleness and her ability to engage a crowd. Although she had wealth, she still had a desire to help and love the people.

Where is your favorite place to hang out? Lake Lanier on a boat.

What do you love most about the industry? It is forever changing. Every day is a new day and no two transactions are alike.

Why Buy a Newly Built Home?

Top 5 Reasons to Buy New Construction

Design Your Dream Home Your Way: Why settle for someone else’s choices when you can choose your own options? Choose your cabinets, countertops, appliances,  flooring & light fixtures so your new home reflects your own personal style. 

Choose a Floor Plan and Room Layout that Meets Your Needs: From a master bedroom on the first floor, his and hers walk-in closets, high ceilings to a covered patio with fireplace & a luxurious, resort-style master bath. 

All New & Under Warranty – Low Maintenance: A used home likely has items that may soon need replacing. Your new home — and the products that come with it — are brand-new, under warranty and will offer you years of comfort and enjoyment before needing replacement. 

Energy and Cost Savings: Today’s new homes are far more energy efficient than homes built just five years ago. This saves energy & money in both the heating & cooling seasons.

Community Amenities: Many new homes are built in master-planned communities with resort-style amenities like pools & clubhouses and feature hiking trails & protected open lands, all close to some of the best new schools and shopping near (or even within) your new home community.
