My Real Estate career began in June 1986 at Pearl Properties. My title was Office Manager/Property Manager. I assisted a dozen agents in their day-to-day office and communication needs. I used my effective communication skills to deal with investors, contractors, settlement attorneys, loan officers, appraisers, and other realtors. My first week on the job I reorganized the accounting records using a simple spreadsheet. I then encouraged my employer to use the emerging computer technology available at the time to computerize our office. I designed and implemented several programs (using databases and spreadsheets) to simplify our work. The implementation of these programs allowed our office to become more productive and efficient. Tasks that use to take hours now only took minutes to complete. I often worked very long hours taking work home or staying late at the office. My property management duties were equally demanding, since I was responsible for the management of hundreds of foreclosure properties in MD, DC and VA. I also managed privately owned properties and maintained 80% occupancy rate in more than 40 units. My employer provided me with one assistant to under take all the above activities. During this time I was sent to Ohio and Connecticut to set up branch offices and train the staff.

In 1989, I decided to get my real estate license in Maryland. I also obtained a certificate for appraising from the American Association of Appraisers. In 1990, I obtained my real estate license for the District of Columbia. I learned the real estate trade from one of the top agents in Maryland "Pearl Phillips"(now retired). Learning the trade from a top producer was very beneficial and helped me develop into a successful realtor. I take many real estate courses to stay on top of current/future trends/laws and major changes in the industry. In all my years of providing real estate services I have never received a single complaint.

My family lived in Columbia, MD for several years and then we moved to Silver Spring, MD in 1980. I have lived in Silver Spring ever since. I graduated from Springbrook High School in 1983 and then I attended Montgomery College in 1984-1986. In 1986, I began working for Pearl Properties a Real Estate company in Silver Spring, MD. I impacted the company immediately recouping thousands in lost revenue, which I found on my first week on the job. In 1989, I obtained my real estate license, and then in 1995 I obtained my Brokers license. My mother "Pearl" the owner/broker of Pearl Properties retired signing over the company to me her son. This family owned and run business has been a success all these years due to our many attributes (i.e., professionalism, experience, integrity, honesty, creativity, trustworthy, reliable/dependable, morals, high standards, knowledge of industry, and a trend setter). When I was 13 years old I began helping my mother in her real estate business, but I was not an employee at the time. I gained some very good experience from a very young age.


I like to travel, listening to music, meeting with friends, dining out, BBQ's, playing many outdoor sports(to many to list), playing indoor sports (indoor soccer, basketball, & racquet ball), surfing the web, cooking, photography, watching sports (football, soccer & basketball), fishing, camping, hiking, canoeing, sailing, white water rafting and I like to try new things.
