About Me: Besides helping people buy and sell real estate, I love to read, travel,scuba,walk my dog everywhere, sew a quilt now and again. I don't like to cook up a storm anymore but I still love to eat, drink and be merry. Like to spend with my family and nothing more satisfying than a good belly laugh! My friends are important to me as well. And gosh, do I wish there were more hours in a day!
