Originally from Venezuela, at the age of 12, my family and I embarked on a somewhat nomadic journey, living in 5 continents in just over 5 years. Moving to the United States in the early 1990s, my life was still very much in a constant state of transition, moving here, there, and everywhere as the trailing partner of my husband of now nearly 20 years. In short, with 7 houses in 6 states with 3 young children in tow, I know, firsthand, what it means to buy, rent, and sell houses. I also understand what it takes—transactionally, logistically, and personally—to smoothly transition into a new environment.
Relocating to Columbia over 5 years ago, South Carolina drew us in with its scenic mountain views upstate, nostalgic coastal towns, and prime culinary landscape (I love good food). The people with their warmth and welcoming charm, however, ultimately won us over for good. Committed to this community, I’ve spent years volunteering in local area elementary schools, organizing a women’s group, and interpreting for the Latino community within my church. Fully settled in now, I’m translating my lifetime of experiences into a full-time career in real estate.
I also join The ART team, having worked before as a photographer and as a mortgage processor and underwriter. With this blended skillset and, perhaps, eclectic path, I come to this work with in-depth cross-cultural knowledge, a keen eye for aesthetics, and industry insights. This background enables me to serve a broad range of clients—single professionals, couples, growing families, and new empty nesters.
Altogether, as an agent, I’m focused on the intersection between aesthetic and functionally (again, I’m a mom of three!) and on the needs, wants, and dreams of my clients. In the end, I see my role holistically, meaning that in this work of buying and selling homes, I’m also all about advocating and negotiating for my clients.
As a lifelong nomad, it’s perhaps somewhat ironic the career I’ve chosen since homes, in some ways, ground us to place. But I’ve come to find that homes also provide the richest of the opportunities for meaningful connection and fulfillment, bringing us into and making us part of a community. And so, I hope to connect with you and work for you to help you with whatever is next in your journey.
