Buying a home is one of the biggest investments you will make. I have helped many buyers through the entire home buying process to make it a positive experience. A Graduate of the Real Estate Institute, I hold several real estate designations, including the ABR designation (Accredited Buyer’s Representative). In addition I have been the recipient of the Charlotte Five Star Professional Award two years in a row. I am currently a certified relocation agent with my company of 800 agents and rank in the top 50.

Along with my husband, I relocated from New York State several years ago and have a keen understanding of the challenges that face new home buyers in the Charlotte area. I will provide the tools and information you need to make a smooth transition.

If you are a first time buyer, an investor, or interested in building a brand new home in North or South Carolina, don’t hesitate to call me!.

And selling your home can be a daunting task as there is so much to prepare. I can offer my home selling guide to get you started and my in home consultation and personalized marketing plan to take you to a successful sale!

My experience has subjected me to many challenges in this ever changing field and I welcome each one as a new adventure.

My past clients have thanked me for my understanding, attentiveness, patience, and simply being on their side.

Testimonials and References

Regarding our recent experience in marketing and selling our home, it is obvious we made a wise choice in selecting you to be our agent. Your expertise and knowledge of the local market were instrumental in advising us on how to present the property for a satisfactory sale. I think we both were surprised when the initial offer was made so quickly.
It is difficult to identify any one example to applaud, since the overall actions from start to closing were so well planned, explained, and executed. It really was far less difficult than expected, thanks to the courteous and professional manner in which you led us through the process.
I will be happy to recommend you to anyone in need of your services. Thank you for all you did for us.

Phyl made the process of finding, building and purchasing our home a smooth and non-stressful experience. Phyl's knowledge of the market and all the details of building a house proved invaluable to us. She always knew the right questions to ask and helped us every step of the way.

She was always professional and responsive; we could count on her to answer our questions and give us the right advice.·-It-was a pleasure to work with Phyl and I would highly recommend her as a real estate agent. Her vast knowledge and experience in real-estate shines through and you can tell by her dedication and work ethic that she genuinely cares about her clients. We love our new home. Thank you Phyl!

I could not have made this move from Ct to SC without Phyl’s help. With her knowledge and expertise of the real estate market, Phyl showed me numerous condos that met my criteria.
I had a few issues before the closing but Phyl immediately got results. Being overwhelmed with this purchase, Phyl was always available at anytime to speak with me. Even after the closing, Phyl was available to help me locate reliable contractors in the area.
I will never forget how this sweet, kind and understanding individual went above and beyond to help me through this process.

"Phyl was a pleasure to work with throughout the entire house buying proc-ess. Her knowledge of the Charlotte area provided us with a continual variety of choices that met our specific criteria and she was helpful with relevant comments on every house we visited. Once we decided on a house she was immediately responsive and available for all parts of the buying process assuring that every detail was being addressed between us and the seller right through closing. This was the first new house we had purchased in 20 years and she made the experience completely pleasurable and almost effortless on our part. We would enthusiastically recommend her service to any potential home buyer or seller."
