Believe, Achieve, Succeed
My early childhood was spent as a "Navy brat" traveling throughout the United States. Consequently, I have an understanding of the unique real estate needs of the military families. I have made Great Bridge my hometown by choice since 1961 and the community in which my son, daughter and their families still reside.
By education and vocation, I am a teacher at heart which has been a major part of my success in life and in real estate. Obtaining a Master's Degree in History and Education from the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia was a high point of my educational career. In 1968, I began a teaching career in Chesapeake and reached the pinnacle in 1983 when I was selected as the "Secondary Teacher of the Year" in Chesapeake.
With my people skills honed as a teacher and my dedicated work ethic, I left teaching in 1985 and quickly rose to the top 1% of all Realtors in Tidewater. In 1987, I became the managing broker of Womble Realty in Great Bridge. Under my guidance, the Great Bridge Office has grown from 11 to almost 60 full time associates. More importantly, however, the production of listings and sales by the Great Bridge Office agents has grown by leaps and bounds. The office has consistently been a top producer for the company for many decades. In 1998, Rose & Krueth Realty, a leader in new homes sales, and Womble Realty, a leader in resale sales, joined forces to establish Rose & Womble Realty Company, LLC.
