A little about me

Thank you for visiting my website and for your curiosity in my company! 

I have been in the business of helping folks buy, sell, and invest in real estate for 11 years. I originally obtained my sales license with hope of investing & rehabbing houses & quickly realized I love the sales side too. I began my real estate career during my senior year at John Carroll University while earning a bachelor’s degree in business management. For 5 years, I worked at Keller Williams Realty Greater Cleveland Northeast in Mentor and was on an award-winning team, The Ambrose Team. I quickly gained a lot of experience selling HUD, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, REO properties, and some short sales. 

In 2017 I decided to open my own Brokerage, Novella Realty, with the vision of becoming the top brokerage in Ashtabula County, (which is where I grew up & currently reside). I felt that our community was underserved in the world of real estate & wanted to become the go-to resource for all things real estate related in our area.

Since then, I've gained a wide array of experience & have assisted with selling everything from large tracts of land to horse properties, lakefront properties, historical homes, estates, investment portfolios, and more. I’ve worked on many sales requiring probate approval, and have done a good amount of lease placement for local investors. My work on the commercial side has included selling apartment buildings, offices, land, and even some retail sales and leasing. 

My passion is assisting residential sellers maximize their marketing presence and achieve the highest price possible. I love representing unique properties and customizing my marketing approach around individual homes or properties.

Since opening, I’ve been able to grow the business, adding quality agents, and office administrative support. We have the infrastructure, technology, skills and experience needed in today’s market & look forward to serving you, because at Novella Realty, Your Story Begins Here!
