Hello Friends! 

Spring is finally here and I am looking forward to the sunshine and warmer temps that are soon to follow. April is also the time of year when buyers are watching for new listings to hit the market.  Those who want to move in the summer are looking for a home to buy right now.

In March, I was honored to be named the #1 RE/MAX Agent in Western Pennsylvania. I feel blessed to be able to say that I love what I do.  The best part of what I do is meeting the greatest clients! Thank you to all who have been part of this journey!! It will be exciting to see where 2016 takes us!

April is full of fun things to do with family and friends!  Have a great month!


With spring comes every homeowners favorite task—Spring Cleaning! It’s not only an integral part of maintaining your home, it also comes with health benefits both mentally and physically. To help get the most of your spring cleaning, check out these tips and tricks to get job done quick.
