Born and raised in Michigan, growing up around Lake St. Claire, Amy attended Michigan State University, earning her BA in Finance. Upon graduating, she went into banking, where she underwent her bank's management training program. With a strong interest in high level service and passion for client focused work, Amy relocated to Miami and began working in Private Banking.
Shortly after the birth of her first child, Amy left banking and devoted herself to raising her family. After a myriad of roles such as room mom, soccer mom, PTA President, tennis team captain, Fundraising Chair (raising more money in the school’s history for two years running), and “not working” for ten years, she decided it was time to do something with all her energy. Having been already involved in the process of buying investment real estate, she discovered an opportunity that could combine her passion for homes, clients, and finance, and so, decided to get her real estate license in 2003. From there, Amy continued to stay busy as a top performer selling homes in popular neighborhoods, such as: Myers Park, SouthPark, Carmel, Eastover, Dilworth, Sedgefield, Ballantyne, and all of south Charlotte.
“A home is not a home because of its room dimensions or the color of the walls. It is about how you feel when you walk through the front door. And the way you can instantly envision your life unfolding there. This is about more than real estate. It is about your life and your dreams.”
She has called Charlotte her home now for the past 32 years, having spent 25 of those years in the Myers Park area, before moving to SouthPark where she now resides. She is the proud mom of her two grown children, and English Golden Retriever, and in her spare time she enjoys snow skiing and playing on her tennis team at Carmel Country Club.
