Favorite Quote: "Time is more valuable than money. You can get more money, but you cannot get more time." ~ Jim Rohn. This quote emphasizes how precious time is and reminds me to stay present in the moment, seize opportunities as they come, and to cherish the time I have with my family and friends.
Proudest Accomplishment: Embarking on and completing a 6-month, solo trip around the world. It's something I dreamed about doing for a long time, but I couldn't find the "right" time to go. After finally getting the courage to make the trip happen, I explored 20 countries, met new people, forged new friendships, and had the time of my life. The experience enriched my life in countless ways, and now I have increased confidence in my ability to do anything I set my mind to accomplish.
Hobbies: traveling, reading, and investing
Favorite Nashville Landmark: The Parthenon. It’s located in beautiful Centennial Park in the center of our city, and it’s the only full-scale replica of the Parthenon in the world. I find this fact particularly interesting and impressive because I’ve visited the Parthenon in Greece. It's incredible to have such a spectacular representation of ancient history in our backyard.
Favorite Nashville Neighborhood, and why? Woodbine! It's, a great neighborhood with tremendous charm and potential as a lot of new developments are coming to the area, and the new soccer stadium is just a stone's throw away. It's also close to downtown and the airport. So much to love about this great neighborhood!
Favorite Nashville Restaurant: Urban Grub, Kayne Prime, or Chauhan Ale & Masala
Favorite Nashville Bar: The Red Door (Midtown) is a great staple, but there are also great new bars like Justin Timberlake's 12/30 Club.
Favorite Food: tie between seafood and cheese

Favorite Books: The Millionaire next door and The Fifth Agreement
Favorite Band/Music Album: tie between Michael Jackson and Justin Timberlake. Both are insanely talented. Play any of their albums, and it's guaranteed that you'll dance and sing. Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience album is memorable for me because I went to the concert, and he held my hand and sang to me during one of the songs, but hands down the greatest album of all time is Michael Jackson's Thriller.
Favorite Movie: Coming to America
Favorite Actor: This is a tough one because I have several favorites including Patrick Stewart, Denzel Washington, Tom Hanks, Angela Bassett, Kerry Washington, Morgan Freeman, Will Smith, Leonardo DiCaprio, Charlize Theron...

Why did you choose to become an agent at Harris Realty? Harris Realty is a long-standing, family-owned business with brokers and agents who are knowledgeable and truly care about the people they serve. These core values resonate with me because the main reason I decided to become an agent was to help others achieve their real estate goals. By joining the strong Harris Realty network of real estate brokers and affiliate brokers, I know I’ll be able to serve and help others as they start and build upon their investments in real estate.
