Welcome to my website!

In 2006, I began my own home staging business and in 2012,  I earned my Texas Realtor® license with Altus Realty in Celina, Texas. As a result, my residential listings always show as a model home and are always professionally photographed as such. 

As principal designer and founder of Spaces & Places, I design, buy and sell real estate through Altus Realty, a brokerage firm in Collin County, serving the areas of McKinney, Plano, Allen, Frisco, Celina, Little Elm, Prosper and Gunter. 

My love for homes, inside and out, began at a young age age as I grew up oooh-ing and aaah-ing over my father's architectural drawings, spinning his electric eraser while dreaming up and sketching out home plans many moons ago.

When I was three years old we moved out of the city onto an old farmstead with acreage.  It was very picturesque, with a long, winding tree lined driveway.  My parents re-modeled our old farm home and I can vividly recall various architectural and interior details that they added throughout the home, like the palm plastered walls and soaring stone fireplace in the living room, and the  black and gold wallpaper of a powder bath, complete with black fixtures,  and the mod sitting area to the right of the entry. We moved from that farm-house a few years later into a home with similar style.  This home had been moved from the main street of the town onto a quiet residential street.  It had impressive oak wood detail throughout the home and I kept after my Dad until he painted the exterior  to match the color of our beloved farm- house.  

Throughout my high school years, the weekends were filled with checking out and photographing surrounding model homes and new builds in the Plano, Texas area.

My passion for real estate and interior design continued into my college years, where I studied Business, Interior Design and Real Estate, all while taking on design projects in businesses and homes of family and friends. 

I specialize in space planning during the design concept phase and selecting interior and exterior materials for new builds or remodels: such as tiles, flooring, wall coverings, hardware, plumbing fixtures, lighting fixtures, etc.

My ideal client as a residential listing agent is one who values home staging and the process of prioritizing your return on investment.  

I am highly experienced in the acquisition and sale of  investment property/acreage.  

As a buyers agent I excel in finding  property for clients who are  looking to build their new custom home,  where my residential design services are utilized during owner, architect and builder collaborations.
