First and foremost, thank you for visiting my real estate home on the web! I am a dedicated real estate professional and 2019 marks 15 full-time years in real estate.

I’m a Certified CARTUS Relocation Agent, CARTUS Network Affinity Specialist, CARTUS Network Referral Specialist and the USAA network. For all your relocation needs, I have you covered. Kentucky has been my forever home so I’m excited to show you around and introduce you to the neighborhoods and help you navigate the city, the restaurants, the shopping areas, the business district and more.

- In 2018 I was named an Inman News Star Contributor. Inman News is the leading real estate news source in the United States. This role allows me to be a voice and educator on real estate news and topics which are shared across the country to other news sources, to agents and to the public. Whether I am writing a topic that will help agents in the business or help buyers and sellers, I believe education Is key in all realms of business, especially real estate.
I am a lifelong Lexingtonian and graduate of historic Transylvania University. After graduation I worked professionally for several years in the Public Relations department at Transylvania. In 2005, I left my Public Relations career and followed my lifelong passion for my city and its lustrous history which naturally led me to a career in real estate.
As a child I constantly asked my parents to take me to open houses. Persistence is key! I have a special place in my heart for historic homes as well as the homes in the Eastin Rd, Deepwood and Paris Pike corridor where I grew up in Lexington. My love for real estate truly was born and cultivated in my childhood. I won First place at the Kentucky National History Competition on my real estate report.
My passion for real estate comes natural to me. I often wonder if I was born for real estate. After all my Grandmother’s name was Ms. House before she married Mr. Soper!
In 2010, along with my business partner, we opened a trendy real estate boutique firm in downtown Lexington called Cypress Residential Group. It wasn’t long afterwards the nationally recognized and trusted real estate brand Better Homes and Gardens® Real Estate saw Cypress Residential Group as a natural partner to expand their global brand and thus the Kentucky office of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Cypress was born in January 2015. I always remember my Grandmother and Mother pulling out those iconic Better Homes And Gardens cookbooks during the holidays. When it comes to the house and home, Better Homes And Gardens is the most trusted brand in real estate. It is an honor to be their Kentucky representative.
