I was born and raised in Chicago and received a Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Illinois in Economics and Accounting. After graduating from University, I packed up and moved myself to San Francisco and New Mexico for work, and finally settled on Vancouver Island in 1995 where I now enjoy my life in tranquil Maple Bay. It was in my early 40s that I decided to pursue my love of real estate, and haven’t looked back since!
I have always been actively involved in the communities I’ve lived in, as well as in the schools and sports of my two children. I enjoy boating, travelling, good food and meeting people from all over the world.
I have worked in the accounting and business administration fields and bring my experience together with my love for people and real estate to the Cowichan Valley where I am a Realtor with Pemberton Holmes Ltd. I have been featured in the Top 10% of the Company, and I enjoy my career as a Realtor because every day brings a new challenge and I get to meet so many great people along the way.
Looking for a Real Estate Agent who puts you first?
If you’re planning to buy or sell a home, you want the process to go successfully. If you’re selling, success means getting your property sold quickly and for the highest price possible. If you’re buying, it means finding your next dream home and getting into it, affordably. On top of that, if you’re like most of my satisfied customers, you also want everything to go smoothly, with as little stress as possible.
How can you ensure all that happens? By working with a real estate agent who truly puts you first.
I’m proud to be the real estate agent of choice for those who want a great experience buying or selling a home. My “clients-first” approach means that you’ll be working with a professional who listens to you, provides expert advice, and works hard on your behalf.
The Expert by Your Side
When you’re selling: My track record of success means I know how to showcase your house effectively, market and promote it so that it attracts qualified buyers and get it SOLD for the highest price. Throughout the process, I’m with you every step of the way, making sure your questions are answered, all the details are handled expertly, and the entire experience is a positive one.
When you’re buying: My expertise in the local market means I can introduce you to homes that meet your criteria – and notify you immediately of brand new listings. I can advise you on what to look for when viewing a home, so you don’t make a catastrophic mistake, and I can arm you with in-depth details on every property you see. When you find a home you fall in love with, I know how to negotiate effectively so you get that property, at the best possible price. In fact, nothing pleases me more than saying, “The home is yours.”
The Right Real Estate Agent for You
Whether you’re buying or selling, it’s ultimately about realizing a dream. I understand how much the decision will mean to you. In fact, that’s one of the reasons I became a real estate agent – to help people buy or sell a home, while making the process easy and trouble-free. Clients often tell me how much they appreciate my expertise, my willingness to be there with them every step of the way, and my determination to get them the best deal. They also tell me I’m friendly and a pleasure to work with – which is quite a compliment!
If you’re looking for a real estate agent, it’s important that you find someone who is a good fit for you. So let’s talk. Whether you’re selling or buying, I’d like to learn more about you and your needs and goals. You can count on me to “tell it like it is” and give you a realistic picture of what is possible.
