I started working in real estate because I believe the place you live has an immeasurable impact on your quality of life – and I want to help people find their perfect place. I have been involved in historic preservation, historic house renovations and Richmonds civic associations for over 30 years. Richmond is a fantastic city. I would love to help you find the neighborhood that is right for you.
I have lived in Richmond’s historic Fan and Museum Districts since moving to Richmond after graduating from the University of Virginia. I had a past career as a marketing director, I renovated 5 historic houses, and raised my family in Richmond. Joining Mary Davenport and Jill Davenport of the Davenport Team at Joyner Fine Properties was a natural step. Jill and Mary helped me sell and buy my own homes and I knew they were the type of professional I wanted to be: professional, successful for their clients, and fun to work with. I bring marketing experience and a passion for Richmond neighborhoods to Jill and Mary’s over 30 combined years of successful experience in real estate. We all share a love of Richmond and a dedication to building long-term relationships with our clients.
