Originally from San Diego, I moved to Coastal Virginia area in the late 90's. Unlike so many people I meet who don't like the weather here; I love it! I love the seasons, that we get just enough snow to have a few days off every winter and build a snowman, and the hot summers full of perfect beach days! I love the ocean and the close proximity to Washington DC and so much more than that. People often ask me how I ever left San Diego, but the truth is, I have never looked back. 

I had an interest in real estate from a very young age. I'm naturally a relationship person so getting to pair making a living with helping people elevate their lifestyle and make one of the most important decisions of their lifetime feels like a true win-win. 

As far as I'm concerned, real estate is a job I never plan to retire from!

I am a Realtor specializing in the Coastal Virginia area. Coming from a military family, I understsnd the needs of those moving into the area and relocating. I love all aspects of buying and selling real estate, but I have a special place in my heart for first-time homebuyers! No matter if it's your first time or your fifth, contact me today to make the home buying process a breeze!

Hello, My name is Brooke Mora and I want to thank you for taking the time to find out a little bit about me and what I have to offer you when it comes to your real estate needs.  I have called Coastal Virginia, or more specifically, Chesapeake, Virginia, my home for almost a decade.Taking a leap of faith and relocating from rural Pennsylvania became a great move for my family and I.

I started up a small business in Norfolk, which was successful and rewarding and from there moved on to study Professional Appraisal Practice in Real Estate. I then took it one step further and became a Realtor shortly thereafter and haven't looked back since!  I am dual licensed in VA and NC so I have the flexibility of helping my clients buy or sell in either state. 

 I love being a Realtor andam so fortunate to be surrounded by an amazing team of professionals who's number one goal is to help families and individuals achieve their dream of home ownership. I care about my clients and will do so with honesty, loyalty and 100% commitment. That is what I bring to real estate and I do so out of a passion for my job and the people I work for.

If you are a seller looking to move on, I willaggressively market your home using the latest technology. Whether you are a seller, first time buyer, or seasoned investor, I will negotiate the best terms and conditions on your behalf with the least amount of time and inconvenience to you, keeping you informed every step of the way. My job is to guide you through a real estate transaction that you will be satisfied with. I want your repeat business and referrals for years to come!

Ashley Pszczola - VA & NC Realtor

“They say that buying a house is the largest and most stressful purchase you’ll ever make in your life. Although I cannot argue that this will be one of your largest purchases, my job, as your agent, will be to take as much of the stress away as possible and make your home buying experience an exciting adventure for you!

A little about myself, I was born and raised in the Cocoa Beach area of Florida. My husband is in the Navy, and when found out we were moving to Virginia Beach, we were excited and nervous! Moving here is one of the best things that has happened in my life! We have been here since 2013 and plan to stay! My favorite feature of this area is the change of seasons. We have three sons, I’m a classic boy mom! Lots of baseball days and taekwondo nights!

I cannot wait to meet you and work with you to find your amazing new home!”

Tara Bell has been in and around real estate since 2001. Starting in title and escrow closings, to foreclosures and later property litigation, she has been involved in all things real estate related for the last 17 years. She brings a well rounded knowledge base, professional and fun attitude along with a fierce tenacity to serve her clients and walk them towards their real estate dreams. 


Buying or Selling, Tara gives her all and then some to get it done!  

The two pieces of advice for real estate everyone hears are "location, location, location" and "know somebody." I have lived or worked in every one of Tidewater's 7 cities so I know all the locations and know a lot of somebodies. I want to get to know you too so I can help you with all your real estate needs but first you can get to know a little about me.

I was born and raised in Norfolk and graduated from Granby High and Old Dominion University. I have over 15 years of experience in customer service that included experience in management and negotiation. The trifecta of a promotion, new orders for my wife (naval officer), and the allure of the capital pulled me away to northern Virginia/DC for a few years but when it was time to settle down and start a family coming back down home was the only option. After a short time off for our first born I turned my attention back to my career and real estate and haven't looked back yet.

After being personally involved in multiple real estate transactions as a customer, I understood the value an agent can bring to a client and how positively they can influence the transaction experience. I wanted to be this positive influence and quickly found I had a passion for helping people find houses to turn into homes. I believe trust is earned and it is my job to provide value to my client if I want their trust.

For most people buying property is the single largest purchase they will make in their lifetime and the cornerstone for their families wealth building. I treat each transaction with the care and detail I would expect if it was my own family.

I LOVE what I do! I LOVE what I do! I LOVE what I do!

Have I mentioned how much I love what I do? Everyday I wake up with a grateful heart for all the abundant blessings in my life and one of the biggest joys I have, first being a wife and mother, is being a Realtor in Hampton Roads. This is my hometown and where I choose to make a difference every day in any way I can. Having the privilege to serve and share my knowledge, passion and affection for all that our area has to offer is something that can not be purchased. This isn’t a job, this is a calling.

Customer Service, Community and Business are three (3) areas in which I excel. My heart to serve others is what lead me into my career in Real Estate. While obtaining my B.A. in Business Marketing at Old Dominion University, I held positions in upper level sales management, while also running a community center. As a Realtor I have a cohesive marriage of service, community and business that allows me to influence people and the local area on a much larger scale than I ever could have ever imagined.

I partner with each of my clients. I am committed to the highest level of service. I am committed to meeting and exceeding needs and expectations. I am committed to your goals. I am committed to your dreams. I am committed to bringing my best and serving you with the same passion and fire that I bring to every aspect of my life.

It is my honor and my duty to bring exceptional professionalism, expertise, market knowledge, negotiation power and leave you with an understanding of what going Vertical is.

I LOVE what I do and I LOVE doing it with you!

Renee Mongold - VA Realtor/ NC Realtor

Renee is a licensed Real Estate professional in the State of Virginia.  Previous to getting her license Renee worked in the Sales and Marketing Arena for over 20 years.  After her 1993 graduation from Juniata College in Huntingdon PA, Renee took her first job in Sales with Prudential Securities.  From there she moved to the city, Pittsburgh, to pursue her dreams of moving up in the business world.  As a Marketing Sales Coordinator for the Pittsburgh Times, Renee learned how to negotiate and create value for her customers on a daily basis.   

At this point in her life, Renee was called by the beach!  In 1996, VA Beach, VA became her home and her career advancement continued.  Renee became the youngest director at Atlantic Bank.  She headed up the Marketing and Sales departments. 

In 2001 Renee married her husband Steve. Steve was a young military officer at that time and that is when life changed quite a bit for her.  After having her first son, the military decided it was time for this little family to move to Connecticut.  Renee and Steve went on to have three boys in 3 years, Ben, Kyle and Will. 

The military kindly moved the Mongold family back to Hampton Roads in 2005.  It was at this time that Renee started her own business; a pottery and art studio in Chesapeake called Potts N Paints.  After three successful years of business ownership the call of the military came again.  She sold her business and her family of 5 moved to Amelia Island Florida.   While in Florida the Mongolds added another son.  This time the call was to China and Joshua Song Mongold became the newest member of the family in 2010.  Renee Spent her free time in Florida working with Social Services Child and Family Welfare. 

Now a family of 6, the US Military called the Mongolds back to Hampton Roads yet again!  And this is where they will stay for the long haul.  Renee began teaching in the Chesapeake School System upon their return and spent the past few years loving her job as a teacher.   

Through all the chapters of her life, the passion for buying and selling homes remained in the forefront of her mind.  She knew that as soon as her kids were old enough for her to embark on a demanding career, that real estate was the dream she was driving toward.  Ben is now 16, Kyle 15, Will 13 and Josh 11.  Renee's husband has found his final resting spot and now it is time to take all of her years of life experience and turn it into the career she has been waiting for! 

Renee is educated in the financial arena, she is an expert negotiator, possesses tremendous business savvy and has a tireless work ethic that will assure her customers reach their dreams!

Growing up in Hampton Roads with a lender father and agent mother, I'm a passionate product of my environment. Watching my hometown grow and expand was an amazing benefit for someone in my position. While I spent the majority of my life in Virginia Beach, I now live in North Eastern North Carolina and service clients in both states as our areas and industries continue to grown and merge. So many people in our area aren't from here because we are so transient, there are the few that fall in love and stay for extended periods of time but for me this is home and nothing else feels the same. I love that we enjoy all four seasons, that we came from so little and grew to so much, I love our rich history and that we are the true heartbeat of our nation's military, I love that beautiful beaches are a staple necessity of our daily lives and that we are the perfect middle ground between the business of the North and the party of the South. I've enjoyed watching our area explode over the course of my life, I feel like the Seven Cities real estate industry and I grew up together as siblings and I wouldn't want to sell anywhere else. Being a 2nd generation agent, it's just feels like part of who I am and a natural part of my identity. I have a unique perspective and ability to read the markets pulse because of my history here and in our industry and I really enjoy sharing that advantage with my clients as we navigate some of the biggest transactions, investments and relocations of their lives. I'm very lucky to be doing exactly what I was meant to do and I can't wait to work with you! 

Mike and Shannon live in Suffolk Virginia with their two boys, Dominic (12) and Daniel (8). Their son Collin (29) lives in South Florida and we have two children celebrating eternity in Heaven.
