real estate market. Joni leads a very active life, while continuing to network and look for new

     Ginnie has always thrived on serving others.

While raising her three children just outside of Philadelphia,

she worked in the healthcare field and after moving to Anne Arundel

county in 1984 and watching her children go off to college,

she embarked on a new career as a Realtor.

She has been helping her clients buy and sell homes for the past 15 years.

“Working as a Realtor has been very fulfilling, and a dream come true!” 

 The transition to real estate was quite natural for Ginnie as her mother

was the first woman to hold a brokerage license in both New Jersey and

Pennsylvania. As a young child Ginnie watched her mother perfect the

art of selling real estate. These experiences lead to a life-long interest

in houses in general and real estate in particular. 


After receiving her salesperson’s license in 2003, Ginnie worked

with both buyers and sellers for two well-known national brokerages,

where she earned the “Distinguished Sales Achievement” award and

became an “Accredited Buyer’s Representative”. Her business took

her as far as Carroll and Calvert Counties, as well as Queen Anne’s 

and Talbot Counties on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.


In 2010, Ginnie became a Relocation Counselor for another very

well-known company and assisted many people who were moving

into or moving out of the state. While working there, she also managed

agents who have their licenses in referral status. Recently, she

affiliated withAcademy Realty, with a strong desire to work directly

with buyers and sellers again.


“This is definitely my first love!” Ginnie says, “My husband and I have

lived here in Heritage Harbour for the past five years and we can’t imagine

a bettercommunity for us! Our neighbors are very welcoming and

always ready and willingto lend a hand to someone in need.

We enjoy participating in many of the Heritage Harbour social, civic and 

cultural events, as well as charitable endeavors. There are many

interesting facts and wonderful aspects to our community and I would

love to share that knowledge. Please let me know if you are interested

in a free consultation and/or a tour of our neighborhood. 

This place has it all – I would love to help you become my neighbor!

Real Estate has always been a part of my

background. To help pay my way through Purdue

University, I had a job right out of high school as a

typesetter with a Homes Magazine publisher in

Indiana. There, I gained knowledge of real estate

marketing plans and became aware of the detailed

tasks of every licensed realtor who sells real estate

for a living.  Well, that was some time ago, but

throughout my professional career I have gained

experience working for real estate lawyers and

developers, and residential mortgage financing.

 It’s a natural landing for me to help homeowners

buy and sell homes. I have sold enough homes to

be able to trouble-shoot most likely scenarios for a

new home purchase. I have expertise in all types

of home purchases, including VA, FHA,

conventional, and jumbo purchases.   I have lived in

Annapolis, Maryland for over 30 years.  My love of

the area, expert negotiation skills and keen instinct

about the housing market makes me an excellent

choice to represent your next residential sale or
