About Me

I am the spouse of a retired military officer, and together we raised 3 kids, in 14 duty stations over 32 years.  I understand the huge task of moving and relocating. I have moved more than 18 times, and I understand how important and stressful it can be to find new communities, new activities and new schools.  I can help make your transition as smooth and hassle free as possible, whether your move takes you across town, or across the globe.

Real estate wasn’t my first career, but when I had the opportunity to evaluate what I wanted to do with my life, I knew that I wanted to combine my passion for “loving a challenge” with my ability to help families transition, and becoming a Realtor was the obvious choice!  When I started in 2005, the market was booming, but quickly declined, and that offered me the opportunity to be in the forefront of a diversification in how people looked at real estate. I used my passion for real estate to help families that needed to sell in a declining market.  I became a certified Short Sale Specialist to help those families through rough times, and I have been blessed to be part of helping other families in their adventures to make the most important and expensive investment of their lifetime.

Over a decade later, with my roots firmly planted in Virginia, I have sold over 120 million dollars of Real Estate. For the past ten years I have been one of Century 21’s top 100 agents in the Mid-Atlantic Region. I have stayed completely vested in this ever-changing market and I fully utilize the resources I have discovered along my way: professional photographers, videographers, top notch settlement companies, lenders and inspectors. I also provide no-cost staging (as needed) and the technologies to create beautiful glossy marketing pieces to ensure that my clients homes are presented with class.

I believe my clients deserve to have a WONDERFUL and FUN real estate experience.  I would love for your real estate experience to be my next adventure!

My dedication to my clients and my career has resulted in many awards over the years such as:

2017 - Top Producer, Century 21 Diamond Award

2015, 2016-Top Producer, Century 21 Centurion, Quality Service Award, Presidential Award

“Paula came into an awful situation. Our house had been a rental that was managed by a Property Manager. We were absentee landlords. Our contract with the property manager stipulated that we list the home for sale with them. After the house sat on the market for 4 months in a neighborhood where the average time on the market was less than 2 weeks, we fired the property manager. Paula inspected the house and strongly encouraged us to make a trip to see it. In short, the house was a disaster. Paula effectively guided us through the process of repairing and restoring the house to a salable condition. This process took over 5 months and costs tens of thousands of dollars. As we were not local, Paula helped in finding and managing contractors as well as providing excellent advice as to what needed to be done. When the repairs were complete, she staged the house for us. The bottom line was that we had three offers over the asking price in less than 36 hours from the time the house went on the market. We are in out 70's and had a military career. As with all military families, we moved often. In that time we have bought and sold a number of houses and Paula is hands-down the best agent we have ever dealt with. ”

She answers every phone call, text, e-mail and takes the time to really understand what you need as a client. Every matter at hand was handled in a timely manner and if there is a bump in the road she always had a resolution. Ms. Paula worked around my crazy work schedule and my time is so limited, she managed to keep me level headed during such a hectic time in my life. She works for you and your family.

Brenda Griffith (Buyer)
“Paula is well versed and knowledgeable in real estate. She walked us through the process and guided us every step of the way. From the start she told us what had to be done before we even list the house to ensure it was ready to get the most traffic. Our house sold in less than a week for asking price. She priced it right and we got what we wanted. She also held our hands through the inspections, signatures, etc. We made it a little difficult for Paula because I already relocated to Chicago and my husband back in Virginia. We are so thankful and lucky to have Paula represent us. It couldn't have gone more smoothly. She should get an immediate promotion. ”

Brian, Manassas (Buyer)
“We have worked with Paula a few times over the years and she has always been so friendly, understanding and attentive. She is very knowledgeable about the market and sets the standard for how it should be to work with a realtor. She is honest and if she doesn't know about something, she will work tirelessly until she finds the answer or solution. When we originally purchased our home, we purchased a new build and she was there for every appointment throughout the months it took until we closed. When we needed to sell, she worked hard to do her research to make sure we were getting everything we needed. During the sale of our home we were faced with some difficult hurdles and she never took her foot off the gas, she worked every angle and possibility and made us feel like we were her top priority. She is professional, driven, kind and takes care of her clients by listening and having their best interest at heart every step of the way. We'd use her again in a heartbeat and recommend her to anyone we know! ”

“Paula came recommended through a colleague at work. I am a young buyer and she was extremely warm and patient with me. She answered all of my questions and I never felt unsure about what I was doing with her guidance. She is extremely knowledgeable about the home-buying process and about the larger DMV area. She was honest and found the perfect townhouse for me! I chose a new build, so the process was about six months from start to finish. Each step of the way, Paula was so supportive, helpful, and always available for every meeting, phone call, and text message. I highly recommend Paula for anyone looking for an honest, genuine, and hard working realtor. She's truly amazing and will make you feel like you're her only client. ”
