Growing up in the gorgeous lakefront community of Traverse City, Michigan, Dede was rooted in the small-town values of supporting others and community pride. Being immersed in this entrepreneurial culture inspired her to channel her spirit of hard work and dedication throughout her life. She is living her family’s legacy as a fourth generation real estate agent, where she uses her innate ability and passion to connect with people, while supporting their real estate goals.
In 2011, she stepped out of her comfort zone by moving to Nashville. Dede quickly fell in love with the city and its vibrant energy. She discovered that she felt at home because of the sense of community and sincere connections. Having over seven years in marketing and event planning, Dede understands the needs of her clients while remaining calm throughout the home buying and selling experience. Having worked for a non-profit, a global-retailer and large corporate entity, Dede has the ability to find common bonds with anyone she meets, while understanding their aspirations.
Dede demonstrates dedication. She has run over eleven half marathons and climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro on her honeymoon. This challenge was an amazing accomplishment for her and her husband and exemplified her passion for achieving any challenge that comes her way.
Dede lives in East Nashville with her husband and boxer Layla. She is a member of Crossfit 615, East Nasty Running Club and supports Buyamba Uganda, a non-profit supporting children in Africa.
Dede is excited to support her clients and the Nashville community, while continuing to build relationships in a city she loves.
