My career in real estate began somewhat accidentally while I was attending college (later in life) to become a general contractor. A close friend and real estate developer suggested that with my previous experience in sales and my eye for building and design, I should become a Realtor. After much consideration, I did just that! That was in 1998 and I have never looked back.
Since then I have been assisting buyers and sellers with all their real estate needs and I sincerely love what I do! My goal is simple; to make the buying and selling experience as effortless on your part as I can. I am proficient on both sides of a transaction and am comfortable representing either party. I am passionate about my work and offer a level of individualized customer service and local market expertise that is rare in the industry.
However, my number one job is to be fully attuned to each client's unique needs and perspective. In this "super-sized" world of "bigger is better" and "quality vs. quantity," you will find that I operate more like a "mom and pop" business of years past. I pull from my Midwestern roots and treat every client as if they are my only client.
Working as a Realtor has been the most rewarding career I could ever ask for. I enjoy helping people, and that's what so much of this business is about. I am adept in interpreting market trends, negotiating contracts, creative advertising and marketing techniques, social media, technology, and much more. Working as a Realtor never gets boring because our real estate market is an ever-changing industry and that keeps me on my toes.
In my free time…. I am a HUGE lover of ALL God’s creatures and love to
spend my free time with my dogs, enjoying the outdoors, kayaking, biking, or
doing anything that involves being surrounded by nature! I also have a passion for giving back to the
community by supporting causes that are close to my heart, including the Gold
Coast Down Syndrome Organization and The American Foundation for Suicide
