Hello and welcome!

Whether you’re a first-time buyer, moving up or looking to invest, I can’t wait to help you turn real estate dreams to reality.

A natural-born problem solver, I have more than 25 years of experience across all aspects of the real estate industry. I understand that buying or selling a home is an intensely emotional experience, and I do everything possible to educate, advocate and negotiate with your best interests in mind. Your wants, needs and must-haves are my first priorities.

I approach every new opportunity with patience, knowledge and a clear plan. From showing through closing and every step in between, my goal is always to keep you informed, comfortable and empowered to do achieve your goals. Together, we’ll take advantage of all marketing tools, prepare for inspection, review competitive property analysis and discuss mortgage options. Integrity, care and transparency make up the cornerstones of my service promise—a promise that helps me build lasting relationships with my clients and the family and friends they continue to refer my way.

My career began in commercial real estate with expertise in closing, risk management and asset performance management. The skills I learned during this time continue to inform my approach to serving residential clients today—as do my bachelor’s degree in Psychology and my paralegal and MBA property inspection certifications.

When I’m not working, I enjoy hiking, motorsports and other outdoor activities.  An avid horse and dog lover, I volunteer with local dog rescue organizations, including Beagle Rescue of Southern Maryland. To date, I have fostered more than 20 dogs and support animal advocacy efforts throughout my community. During basketball season, I can be found cheering my son’s college team on with much pride!

My job is real estate. But my goal is relationships. So, when you’re ready to take that next step in your journey, let’s connect and get to work.

Meet Luke!

Luke is our mascot, and your friendly companion throughout the entire home buying experience.

When Luke is not out in the field and enticing people to tour new homes for sale or playing with neighborhood kids, you can find him relaxing at home with his favorite book. He loves attention and organic food. He is experienced in playful engagement, trotting and making people smile.

Luke works at the NextHome Envision office at Pike & Rose. He can often be found in the front yard of our featured listings bringing positive energy to the community and helping to draw attention to your home.

I will donate a portion of my fee from every transaction to the Beagle Rescue of Southern Maryland.  My 2 beagles, Libby and Swiper are from this amazing group.

I would highly recommend Suzanne Collins as a real estate agent.

She is dedicated, hard working, and very knowledgeable. Suzanne is so easy to talk to, it was like having my best friend as an agent. I would like to thank Suzanne for making the home buying process, less stressful. I would definitely use Suzanne again to buy or sell a home.
