Real Estate & Home Improvement Professional with a Master's in English & Creative Writing

About Me

After getting my master's degree in English literature and creative writing, I began a career in real estate property management. I coordinated the repair and upkeep of over 1,000 properties over my four and a half years in the industry and gained invaluable knowledge about home renovation and the systems that make a residence safe and comfortable. 

I am intimately familiar with foundations and the issues that often plague them, HVAC systems, plumbing systems, septic systems, roofing, and more. I have a thorough understanding of how these systems function, how they benefit homeowners and buyers, what causes problems with them, and the solutions used to correct issues that may arise.

Unlike most professionals in the real estate industry, I went to school for English and writing, so I'm able to craft an easily readable message that is engaging and informative. I have a unique blend of hands-on experience with home repairs and a mastery of the English language. I can craft informational and opinion-based articles with a clear picture of the intended audience to ensure a high engagement rate and maximum educational value.

After stepping away from the real estate industry, I became a full-time writer. I currently write online content for companies across the country, primarily in the real estate and home improvement niches. In my two years of professional writing, I have never missed a deadline, and very few of my pieces have ever been kicked back to me for editing.
