When I’m not practicing law, I love to spend time with my three children and eight grandchildren. One of my children shares my passion for law and practices in Charlotte. I also love being outdoors – I’m an avid gardener, and enjoy fishing, playing golf and vacationing at the beach. 

Proper preparation prevents poor performance. The key to real estate is being properly prepared and getting things done in advance.
