Having resided in Charlotte for 30+ years, I can proudly call myself a true “Charlottean.” From its rich history to its professional, nationally acclaimed cultural arts, sports, and music venues, Charlotte is one of U.S. top markets in residential real estate stability and growth. With the combination of strong business diversification and constantly being the nation’s TOP-10 large-city affordability index ratios, it’s no wonder why Charlotte is steadily growing and new transplants are relocating to Charlotte calling it “HOME!”

My career began as a financial analyst for a large Fortune 500 firm focused on investment planning and actuarial analysis. As an advanced graduate at UNC-Chapel Hill Business focusing in Finance and Mathematics, I have always had the passion in investing and developing sound financial strategies. Through my own personal success in real estate investments, I’ve developed extensive knowledge over the years in home building, renovations and purchasing properties in high-growing and appreciating areas. With valuable contacts and my extensive knowledge of the Charlotte real estate market, the decision to start a real estate firm to provide SOUND ADVICE to my valuable clients began. Thus began the creation of “Urban Nest Realty!”

I am a sports fanatic, so it’s no surprise to say I follow our beloved Charlotte Hornets and Carolina Panthers religiously. Charlotte also brought its minor league baseball and hockey teams to the City! Make the short annual trip to the NC mountains or to one of our nationally acclaimed beaches…you can see why Charlotte is so highly regarded and a special place to be!

Urban Nest is created to give our clients the BEST and stress-free experience with their home sales or purchase process. A home is your largest investment, and our goal is to ensure it begins and ends on “solid” footing! Choose Urban Nest as your trusted real estate consultants, and together, we will get you maximum results!

I have resided in Charlotte since 1990 and I have watched the city grow exponentially over the years.  I can honestly say that I love The “Queen City” and the surrounding areas.

Over the last 25 years, over 3 million new residents have moved to North Carolina. With so much to offer in terms of work, recreation, and landscape, Charlotte is a real win-win.

Charlotte’s corporate growth has exploded! The city has transformed itself to accommodate the growing number of families arriving each day. Trendy restaurants and tasteful, contemporary shopping centers have cropped up in multiple areas around the Queen City. All the while, great care has been taken to nurture and preserve the sites and traditions that are distinctively Charlotte.

Charlotte combines Carolina charm with cosmopolitan flair with plenty of terrific ways to pass the time. The city is a sports mecca that hosts its fair share of big-time collegiate sports events, from NCAA hoops tourneys to bowl games. It’s also home to the NFL’s Carolina Panthers and the NBA’s Charlotte Bobcats, both of whom enjoy loyal followings. Of course, it’s what happens just north of the city at Lowe’s Motor Speedway that draws the biggest, loudest crowds: NASCAR.

I’ve been involved in the Charlotte community for many years as a youth leader. I also taught chess for many years and helped establish the largest chess club in the country. Serving as Vice-President of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Scholastic Chess Association, I’ve assisted in bringing a national tournament to Charlotte. I also was trained and served as an executive member of the site based committee for public schools and helped to write plans for the public schools, which are still in use today. This experience gives me a very unique and distinctive perspective of Charlotte.

What are some reasons to make Charlotte area your home? Because there’s nothing quite like Charlotte! The people are nice and welcoming, the food is delicious, the night life is amazing, the scenery is beautiful, and you get to enjoy all FOUR seasons!
