I have been selling real estate since 2002, full time. It is how I feed myself and my kids…so it is my profession. I love it, I am passionate about it, and I am a truth teller.
What the heck is a truth teller? A truth teller is someone that can’t BS to save their life. I am also an educator at heart. I used to teach in the Kyrene school district, and I even have my master’s degree in teaching. Having experienced probably the worst real estate crash in the nation here….I decided I had to become an educator, and a real estate agent. Blended. And the truth telling thing, that just comes on top, like the icing of a great cake.
I take educating clients seriously. I am the professional. I am the one that has been doing this real estate thing for all these years. I know a lot about buying and selling houses…but I don’t get to choose which house my clients buy, or make the decisions in any transaction. So I educate buyers and sellers about everything I have learned and know so they can use that information to make informed decisions when they are buying and selling. I am still a teacher.
Home buying and selling is emotional. I get it. I have a family too. I have fallen in love with houses too. My heart has broken when I have sold houses, I have had honeymoons with other houses…then quickly realized maybe I was in love sparkle and shine, and should have worried more about location and floor plan. I also have sold a lot of houses over the years as an agent, and so I have experienced all of those emotions right along with my clients. I will try to keep emotions in the picture, with the facts. That actually may be one of my super powers. I know how to see it both as a professional, and as you, the buyer or the seller…so I will do all I can to help you make decisions with the facts and the knowledge, keeping your heart in mind.
I relocated to Bellingham after 30 years in the Phoenix area. I moved to Phoenix at 17 years old as an ASU freshman. Living in the PNW was a long term dream, and I couldn’t be ore thrilled to be here….but the move has been DIFFICULT. I am hoping all that I learned in MY move I can help YOU to make your move easier.
