About Me < >

 

I like to tell people that I grew up with the real estate business, and then married into it. 

My father was a Real Estate Broker in Kentucky and I grew up working in his office. My husband, Bob Sparks, has been a Broker for 30 years. In 2006 I also became a Broker after working as an agent for 3 years.
