I am a licensed Real Estate Managing Broker. I began my real estate career in 1998, following in the footsteps of my mom, a long-time local Realtor. I specialize in providing a superior level of informed, professional real estate services to buyers and sellers in the greater Seattle/Eastside areas.
Buying a new home is a fun and exciting time and should also be stress-free. I have earned the ABR (Accredited Buyer Representative) designation so that I can effectively work and negotiate in the best interest of buyers. I work diligently to help buyers find their dream home, and walk them through the home-buying process from beginning to end, and even beyond. My team of highly qualified lenders, inspectors and closing agents will ensure that you have a smooth and stress-free purchase!
Selling a home can be a lot of work for any seller. I have come up with several creative marketing strategies to help sellers through this process. I start working long before your house is put on the market to ensure you will receive the highest and best price for your home with my expertise in staging and marketing. When an offer is made, I’ll walk you through the other potentially stressful times for sellers – the inspection and appraisal processes. I’ll be by your side until the end of the transaction, keeping you informed every step of the way.
I am a customer service oriented Realtor, achieving your desired results and providing exceptional service. If you are in the market to buy or sell a home, I will put my years of real estate expertise to work for you!
I have spent most of my life living in the Seattle area. I grew up on Mercer Island, lived in several areas around the Eastside, and finally settled in Sammamish, where I raised my family. I have been married to my husband Jim since 1986 and we have two grown daughters, Missi & Allie.
I love the beauty of the lakes, mountains and trees in the Seattle area. We own a small boat that we love to use during the summer for water sports or just going out to dinner on the lake with good friends. I also love gardening, decorating, snow skiing, going to movies, vacationing in Maui and Lake Chelan, and spending time with my friends and family.
