Buying my first home with my husband ignited my love for real estate. From that point on we bought and sold properties over the last 20 years. Finding those diamonds in the rough and transforming them into beautiful homes is so rewarding. In 2016, I took the love of real estate and started working for Hollston Realty Group. At this firm, I specialize in the representation of investors, developers, home buyers and sellers along the Jersey Shore. Meeting new people and helping clients find the right place to call home is a passion. I currently reside in Point Pleasant Beach with my husband and 4 children. We love spending our free time at the beach…we are sand in our toes kind of family.
