I have lived in Smithfield and Johnston County, North Carolina for most of my life and raised my family here. I know the community because I have been active in civic affairs for a long time. I am a past president of the Greater Smithfield-Selma Area Chamber of Commerce, a former chairman of the Downtown Smithfield Development Corporation, past president of Habitat for Humanity of Johnston County, a founder of the Johnston County YMCA, past president of the Johnston County Arts Council, and former trustee and chair of the Memorials Committee of Centenary United Methodist Church. I served eight years on the Smithfield Town Council.

I am a REALTORŪ and broker affiliated with the The Kelly Cobb Home Team of Fonville Morisey Realty, a Long & Foster Company, and I'm a member of the Raleigh Regional Association of Realtors.

In representing buyers, I can show you properties listed in the Triangle Multiple Listing Service. This is a large database service for REALTORSŪ who are located in over 16 counties throughout the Greater Triangle Region of North Carolina. In representing sellers, I can do a market analysis, list properties for sale, and professionally market them through printed advertisements, the Triangle Multiple Listing Service, and the Internet.
