My first career I was a school teacher. I loved seeing the light come on in a child’s eye when they learned something new. Education is still an important part of my job as a real estate broker.
Educating both buyers and sellers so they can make informed decisions regarding their home or investment purchase or sale is my top priority.
After experiencing the real estate crash of 2008 in Phoenix AZ, advocating for my clients became my passion. The crash brought into clear focus what I could provide that would best serve my clients.
People need to be informed so they can make their best decisions for their purchase and/or sale of property. They also need someone to speak for them, and negotiate on their behalf. That is what I do.
Home buying and selling is emotional. I get it. I have a family too. I have fallen in love with homes 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 with the 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, 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.
You won’t find me on the top producer lists. I choose to work with fewer clients so I can spend the time needed with each and every client, educating them and advocating for them.
I relocated to Bellingham after 30 years in the Phoenix, AZ area. Living in the PNW was a long time dream, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be here….but the move has been difficult. I am hoping all that I learned in my move can help you make your move easier. Ask me for my top tips!
I have the experience, I have the certifications, the education, the degrees. I know more now. Now you, my client, is all that matters.
