Luxury Real Estate Professional

With a background in science and developing a skill of resourcefulness from growing up in West Africa, every transaction by me, is carefully analyzed, giving clients options to make decisions.
After years of running her husband’s medical practice, she understands the importance of providing stellar customer service to her clients as well as individualized attention to details for each client.
One of her specialties is working with Physicians and other Medical professionals. Being married to a physician herself, she has a first hand look into the lives of physicians, understands and knows very well how to work with them.
The real estate market, although predictable at times, is very local and can also be fluid. Local market knowledge as well historical trends and current interpretation of value, go a long way to make a transaction fully executable.
