I'm a native Savannahian and I absolutely love the various lifestyles encompassed by this special place! From the Historic District to the waterfront, to the beach, we have fabulous restaurants, a wonderfully eclectic mix of people, and something for everyone!


How would I fill a 'day off' in Savannah? Well, I would start with breakfast with friends at Crab Cake Benedict and Coffee from Collins Quarter. We would walk off our calories by doing some shopping on Broughton Street and the Design District - popping into some local art galleries too. Then we would take the water taxi across the Savannah River to the Westin and sip Champagne and have spa treatments. My husband, Ben, would pick me up at the Westin dock and we would meander through the river by boat to The Wylde for an early dinner.


One of my favorite Sotheby's moments was when I was invited by one of the live auctioneers from Sotheby's to steer the live auction for the Telfair ball. What a memory! I enjoy traveling and spending time with my husband, two children, and our two golden retrievers, Baylor and Lucy, who love to go on walks and make me smile no matter what kind of day I have had.


Some fun facts about me... I'm competitive when it comes to negotiating on behalf of my clients, and that carries over to other areas of my life. When I’m not working the deals, I’m working my core in Pilates class or on the tennis court which I LOVE (get it!). When asked about my hidden talent, I'd say arranging flowers. My favorite time of year in Savannah is Summer because I love going out in the boat to the Barrier Islands with friends and family, packing a picnic (which could feed a small country), looking for shells, and enjoying nature. The children can kayak, fish, shrimp, crab. It's just such a good time together.


I know the Savannah neighborhoods so well, and my clients appreciate the market knowledge and service level that I offer. I always have my eye out for what my clients seek. In terms of listing, I can apply my lifestyle marketing techniques along with our advanced technologies at Celia Dunn SIR, in order to present properties to the right audiences, whether they be golf properties, waterfront, or historic, for example. I represent buyers and sellers through the entire real estate process, utilizing my expertise of the area and contacts in the real estate network (attorneys, appraisers, home inspectors, contractors). My relationship does not end with the closing of the transaction. I am diligent with following up with clients long after the move, making sure they are acclimating to their new community.
