I am a Christ follower, wife to Roy Puckett, and mother of four amazing boys, now men, plus two wonderful daughters-in-law. The beach is my favorite place to visit, and I love chasing down a good sunrise/sunset whether on the coast or here in middle TN. Building genuine relationships with friends, family, and clients, is my passion! Fitness, reading, good coffee, and photography are also interests of mine. Being a helpful part of others’ real estate journey and establishing solid friendships along the way, while glorifying the Lord, is why I began a career in real estate. I pray that I can be an influential positive impact in my clients’ lives, in the decision-making process, and in the years to follow.
Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.~Colossians 3:23 (NLT)
