I am very excited to announce that I have joined the Sports and Entertainment Division of Dana and Jeff Luxury Homes at Compass, where I am working along side my husband Jamie Talbot.
Many of you know me from my event planning background or from various high profile entertainment projects I have worked on. What some of you may not know is that I also have extensive experience working along side my family who are luxury custom home builders. My history of designing and building houses, as well as staying current on design trends and costs, lent itself to Jeff (Biebuyck), Dana (Olmes) and Jamie asking me to join their team. A move that was a natural evolution for me.
With over 25 years executing amazing events worldwide, as well as consulting on various entertainment, sports and media projects. I am enjoying merging my passions together on this new journey.
