Originally from Virginia Beach, VA, her Dad was a Real Estate Broker and mother (originally from Germany) was a stay at home mom. After graduating high school, she went on to Frostburg State University where she received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Finance. 

Frostburg is where she met her husband, Erich, whom she has been married to for over 20 years.  After graduating from Frostburg, she was a Management Trainee at the National Science Foundation Credit Union and then went on to a fantastic, 10 year career as a Flight Attendant for United Airlines.

Prior to moving to Surfside Beach, SC, they lived in New Market, MD, which is part of Frederick County. One of the best decisions they made was moving to the Grand Strand.

Elke thoroughly enjoys Real Estate and with her background in Finance, Customer Service and upbringing she is one of the best in the industry.  Her enjoyment and knowledge are truly what makes her exceptional and in turn her buyers and sellers reap the rewards. She loves working with people and says "there is no better feeling then when my clients say thank you!"

Erich and Elke have 2 English Bulldogs, Junior and Pebbles.  Junior and Pebbles love to travel and are quite the rock stars when they go for golf carts around Surfside Beach.
