I was the real estate columnist for the monthly Northern Virginia Magazine and the business columnist for the weekly Maryland Tribune newspaper. I have written extensively for internet sites including the San Francisco Chronicle, eHow and others, as well as for various print media. My real estate expertise is the result of 14 years working in real estate sales and property management as a sales executive and as a real estate broker, as well as a VA real estate licensing instructor. My business experience was honed as an owner-operator of different businesses including import/export, computer integration and a thriving pet services provider. I always meet my writing deadlines with my best multiple-edited copy for my clients. My writing motto is to under promise but to over deliver.
