Lake Sinclair and Lake Oconee have had a piece of my heart since 1999. At that time, my husband and I lived in Atlanta and were in search of a lakefront weekend home. We had never been to these lakes but ventured there one Sunday afternoon and instantly fell in love with the lifestyle this region offered and the close proximity to Atlanta. We commuted to these lakes almost every single weekend, every summer, and any chance in between. Our best and happiest times have been spent on the lakes with family, friends, boats, campfires, cookouts, fishing poles, tents, footballs, (you get the idea)!


I grew up on Boone Lake in Kingsport, Tennessee and went to the University of Tennessee. I taught elementary school in both public and private schools for several years before entering into real estate.


In 2013, we had an opportunity to move from Atlanta to our lake home on a full-time basis. I decided to move my license of 20 years from Atlanta to the Lake Sinclair / Lake Oconee market. My husband Jeff accepted a job at Gatewood School in Eatonton as an English teacher and now serves as headmaster. Our two kids, Anna Leigh and John have adored living on the lake full time.


I have a great deal of personal experience with buying and selling property on these lakes. My husband and I have personally bought and sold more than a dozen properties over the years. I would love the opportunity to share my knowledge and experience with you, whether it be buying or selling.
