Virginia Beach has been my home for my entire life. Growing up next to the beach has been wonderful! I have watched Virginia Beach grow from a small town to the prosperous city it has become. Graduating from First Colonial High School and Sweet Briar College, just north of Lynchburg, we have the best of both worlds. Virginia is an amazing state, from the ocean to the mountains. It is just beautiful! In my young adult life, I was fortunate to be the owner of a needlework and knitting business. Papillion was open for five years. The business experience was quite extensive. Sales, buying merchandise, marketing and accounting were just a few of the skills I learned running the business. H Frank Malbon and I got married and have three beautiful children, John, Nell and Will. From the time my children were born, I was a stay at home mother and spent a great deal of time volunteering. The work I have done with the Junior League, Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters, Jr. Va Beach Garden Club, Galilee Church Flower Guild and the Va Beach Garden Club have been some of the most rewarding experiences of my life. Real estate has been an important part of my life for many years. My mother was a very successful Realtor. Currently, my brother and his wife are realtors in Richmond, VA. I finally decided to embark on a real estate career of my own. I love working with people and guiding them through the home buying or selling process. I know the area quite well and can share my knowledge and experience. Coastal Virginia is a wonderful area. Many people are relocated here for some reason or another and decide to make it their permanent home. I would not trade my life experiences here for anything. This is a fabulous place to live and I am thrilled to help people find that special place they call home!
