I began selling real estate in 2009, and by 2016, I was ready to make a change. I began working for CR as an entry level admin, because I wanted the opportunity to get my foot in the door at one of the fastest growing, most innovative companies in town. I was eventually promoted to become Chantel’s Executive Assistant, and in that position I had amazing opportunities to grow and learn by working closely with the CEO of our company. I began helping with Corporate Recruiting, and was promoted to Director of Talent Management, then became an Assistant Managing Partner, and eventually was promoted to my current position as Managing Partner, which is the most exciting, challenging, and rewarding jobs I’ve ever had.


I am passionate about growing our company because I truly believe and have witnessed the opportunities it provides for you, if you are willing to work hard, stick to your commitments, and challenge yourself daily. Whether you are an admin looking to grow within our corporate team, an agent, who would like to grow their own team and move into leadership, or simply looking to increase the number of buyers and sellers that you are able to assist year over year… I would love to help you set goals and achieve them- there is nothing more rewarding for me than that!

Managing Partner

Working for CR for the last 10 years has literally completely changed my life!  This is truly the best the real estate company to work for!  I started working here right after the 2008 financial crisis and even in that environment I was as busy as you can possibly be as CR makes the phone ring in the best of times and the worst of times.  Through the years I have become one of the top sales people and managing broker and now I am the Principal Broker of the Hampton Roads, Virginia branch of the business.  The growth opportunities are endless and I am sincerely grateful for the opportunities I have had here.  When I started with the company I had a negative net worth and was living with my in laws and 10 years later I have the financial freedom that is the American Dream.  The skills and confidence I have gained here have been absolutely priceless! Truly blessed to work here!

Principal Broker

As a Navy Veteran that transitioned into a real estate career, CR has been nothing but a true blessing to me!! The best way for me to describe my experience as a real estate professional is to say that I am “SPOILED”!!! I am able to be a part of a company that provides me with the best training, the best technology, the best leadership and an abundance of opportunities for us to excel as not only an individual but as a family! As an organization that allows me to be true to God and the clients that I serve with a never ending path in leadership, makes CR a place of limitless possibilities which molds and promotes trailblazing leaders!!
