The World is Your Oyster …

Timing is Everything

 “Out of all of the professions in which I currently participate (gourmet chocolatier, custom textbook publisher, landscaper and others), I’m most excited about my Real Estate career. I have lived in Columbia, SC for close to a half-century, as well as graduated with a degree in Psychology from the University of South Carolina, maintained several businesses and educated my two children here. I am intimately aware of the neighborhoods and social trends and can easily help advise you on your home purchase. 

An added benefit for you is I have contacts in several ancillary businesses (such as furniture, appliances, interior design and landscaping) and can gladly recommend one that suits your needs and budget.  Purchasing a home is the single largest investment a person can make and it’s not just my job but it’s my personal duty to help you find the one that best suits you. That is my promise.

On the personal side, I like to make people laugh. You may find through this process that I often try use levity to put you more at ease. While I take this very seriously, I find that it helps sometimes with clarity and perspective.


When you’re ready to make a move, call or text me at (803) 210-5387 or send me an email at and I will get the process started in finding you your new home. I believe timing is everything so, please feel free to contact me whenever it is convenient for YOU.
