Elizabeth is a native of Halifax County; born in Weldon, raised in Roanoke Rapids and has lived in the area her whole life. She comes from a family of Realtors; where her dad was a builder and property manager and taught her at an early age the value of hard work and of putting the needs of the customer first. Before becoming a Realtor, Elizabeth worked for the Roanoke Rapids School District where she got to know the community well by teaching its children and working with their parents. It’s through these relationships that she came to realize real estate was in her blood and community welfare was in her heart.
Elizabeth pursued her dreams and in 2006 began a successful career in real estate as an agent with Heaton Real Estate. Since then, she has helped countless numbers of those same families, and now their children, find the homes of their dreams. Elizabeth understands the needs and the importance of finding the right home for each family and dedicates the needed time and energy to every transaction; treating each customer as if they were a member of her own family.
Experienced in residential and commercial real estate, Elizabeth has recently expanded her role as a Realtor by focusing on the overall growth and development of the Roanoke Valley. Not only has she reached out to existing businesses and professionals to assist them in meeting their needs for space to better service the community, but is also working hard to attract new businesses and opportunities that will enhance the overall growth and quality of life for those choosing to call this area “home”. She works tirelessly for what she believes in and her successes in the community reflect her efforts. It may have taken three years of negotiation and finding just the right property, but Elizabeth was finally able to demonstrate to the Sheetz family the value of locating a station in Roanoke Rapids and by doing so brought additional revenue and much needed jobs to the local community. For Elizabeth, it goes far deeper than just putting her name on a “for sale” or “sold” sign, but on creating a community and a reputation that she can be proud of and that others will respect; knowing they can depend on her to have their best interest in mind at all times.
When Elizabeth is not working she is spending time with her husband, Timothy (also native to the area) and their four-legged child, Heidi. Anyone who knows her well, knows they are the loves of her life and rarely will you see one without the other. In fact, she will jokingly tell you that Heidi has definitely shown and sold more homes than any other pet in the Valley! With the love of travel, they are often found in their motorhome taking a last minute “getaway”; relaxing and recharging, or you might just see them drifting along the banks of Lake Gaston or the Roanoke River waiting to catch “the big one”. But, no matter where they are, they always know the road to home!
