As the original member of The Roskelly Team, I moved to Maryland (for the second time) on PCS orders in 1998. I decided to purchase a home because I couldn’t find a rental to accommodate my pets. I was amazed at how difficult it was to find a real estate agent and lending assistance from someone that; (i) understood military PCS moves, and (ii) understood military pay and housing allowances. I was told by the lender my real estate agent recommended that my qualification was much lower than it actually was because the lender didn't understand BAH. And I had an agent who was always too busy or wanted to show homes only in the areas she knew and liked, not the ones where I wanted to be. None of that worked for me. Through my own resourcefulness, we found our perfect home, in the price range and area we wanted and despite some lending glitches (we owed more at settlement than we expected because our lender didn’t understand the VA loan) were able to get to the settlement table successfully.
I've always had a “can do” attitude and excelled at every job I've had. As a military wife, I did whatever work was available at each duty station that my Navy husband was assigned to. But my specialty was commercial real estate and I had been licensed since 1988. When hubby finally retired, we decided on Maryland as our home because we had both been stationed here (I am an Army vet) and loved the area. I decided that I wanted to follow my heart and jump into real estate full-time. My supportive husband backed me 100% despite our budget deficits and I took the leap into full-time real estate in 1999. I quickly became Rookie of the year and our office top agent within my first nine months in the business. I’ve since gone on to sell over 150 million in real estate, one family at a time.
I made sure to learn everything I could from every possible resource and built a team of knowledgeable service providers including lenders, home inspectors and contractors so I can give my clients the very best service and guidance every step of the way.
I quickly built a real estate practice that needed more than just me to keep it flowing. I recruited my daughter, Jessica Hood, at the age of 18 and when my husband retired from the Navy he joined us as well. And still we grew! So we expanded our team with hand chosen agents who were also our clients. These agents understand and share the same work ethic and heart that is required to give the very best service.
