I am a Top Selling Agent and a Licensed International Real Estate Advisor in coastal North Carolina, as well as Agent of the Year for 2022 and 2023 and the Cape Fear REALTORS® Global Network Chair for 2020 and 2021.  

I was nominated by my clients and awarded by the American Institute of Real Estate Professionals as one of the 10 Best Real Estate agents in NC for clients’ satisfaction every year since 2019.


I am not just selling in the luxury market, but I am also selling a luxury experience and a higher level of client satisfaction.  One sale for a quick buck isn’t as important as creating a luxury brand perception.  My clients care about ethics when they choose a real estate agent.  They value my honesty, hard work, loyalty, persistence, and my impeccable communication and negotiation skills. 

I provide all-inclusive service to all of my clients.


I am extremely knowledgeable about the real estate industry which is evidenced by having surpassed the necessary training and certifications required of a Real Estate Agent.  I am a certified Resort & Second-Home Property Specialist, a Certified International Property Specialist, an Accredited Luxury Home Specialist, a Certified Negotiation Expert, as well as a member of The International Multiple Listing Service.  I am always trying to bring to the table the best of both worlds – America and Europe.  I am well versed and familiar with different cultures and backgrounds.  I enjoy a challenge!  The best recognition for me is to know that I have succeeded.

Energetic and caring, I believe that through a clear understanding of my clients' needs and goals, the perfect opportunity can be found.  Effective client care means focusing my entire business around learning and meeting my clients’ needs.

My background consists of extensive sales experience as well as banking.

My representation of Sellers and Buyers spans a wide range of domestic, as well as international clientele; such as investors, attorneys, doctors, military families, and first-time home buyers.


Most importantly, my business is almost exclusively generated from past clients and referrals which stands as a true testament to my outstanding service. 
 
My reputation and good name are important to me. 

I was born and raised in the Czech Republic and have lived in many countries all over Europe.  I studied the Russian, German, and French languages, as well as the fundamentals of Latin.  I never thought the English language was going to be in my future until I met my Marine husband while vacationing in Japan.  We have been happily married for over twenty years and we have three children whose ages are 12, 16 and 17.  In 2016, I became a legally naturalized American citizen!  I worked hard to acclimate myself to the American lifestyle and culture, and have learned the English language on my own without any formal education.

I am a firm believer in giving back.  I donate to various charities every year.

In my free time, I love to garden which is a passion that I acquired from my grandmother.  I enjoy traveling, doing fun activities with my children, spending time with my husband and our overly loveable yellow labs, Mr. Henry – our pug and four grumpy cats.  It is a lot of fun to watch your hard work grow and bloom throughout the year!  Much like Real Estate!


My motto is "IF IT IS IMPORTANT TO YOU – IT IS A MUST FOR ME".
 
Languages Spoken: English, Czech, and German - intermediate
