I have been in some aspect of sales since 1988 when I had a part time retail job at a clothing store while I was in college at Kent State University getting my degree in Marketing. Two weeks after graduating I secured a job as an Assistant Manager for Lerner New York. I worked my way up to Store Manager and turned a struggling store into one of the top stores in the region. I was then recruited by Eddie Bauer as an assistant manager and within a few months had my own store in Pittsburgh. Once again turning around a store that was at the bottom of the district in all numbers and taking it to the number 1 store in the PA/OH District. I was promoted to a larger store in Canton, OH and enjoyed positive numbers at that store. One of my former employees got her Real Estate License and raved about how much she enjoyed her new career. She convinced me that after 12 years in Retail that it was time to make the move to Real Estate. I was very lucky in meeting a new builder while I was taking my Real Estate courses. As soon as I got my license, I already had a few listings waiting for me in new construction. I became Stark County Rookie of the Year in New Construction sales in '01. We sold 10 to 15 new houses a year along with resales. In '04 the builder moved on to another venture and I had my first child and took a well deserved rest, although I still remained in the business, but just not quite as active. 2007 brought a 2nd child, although now I am back in the real estate business 100%. Hey, with 2 extra mouths to feed, I have to be!
I like to specialize in helping buyers and sellers in the Canton, OH area including, Hartville, Plain Twsp., Jackson Twsp, Perry Twsp, and North Canton among others. I live in the Portage Lakes, so I also have clients in Lower Summit County, Green, Coventry, Manchester, and I LOVE working w/ waterfront properties. I can show any home in all of Ohio so I don't want to limit myself to one certain area. Want to buy a house in Put-In-Bay??? Give me a call!!! I'd LOVE to help!!
