A native Oregonian I was raised in Lake Oswego. My parents were active in our community and schools, volunteering and supporting events and businesses. I followed their lead while raising my own family and love seeing my kids and their families do the same. Being a part of such a great community makes me proud to call Portland home when sharing its lifestyle, culture, and real estate with my clients.
In 1994 I obtained my real estate license. Two years later, I became a Principal Broker. In the years following I joined the top 5% of residential real estate agents in the nation by qualifying for Oregon’s Diamond Platinum Club and the Realty Alliance Group. I also earned my GRI, CRS, ABR and other designations as part of staying as informed of an agent as possible. As much as I enjoy learning I also enjoy teaching and training other agents about real estate. Doing keeps me sharp and allows me to take the best possible care of my clients while ensuring that the transaction process is smooth and fun as can be.
A few years back I was offered the Director of Sales and Marketing position in the senior living community I had just helped my parents move into. It was an opportunity I did not see coming and could not pass up knowing I would enjoy a new challenge while being nearer to my parents. Those few years I learned an extraordinary amount about a different side of real estate, our aging population, and their loved ones. I believe this experience has made me a better realtor and resource for the senior population that today makes up more than half of our country's population
I have always enjoyed the people I meet in life. To be able to help strangers or friends with their real estate needs is a privilege I’ve never taken for granted. I am pleased to say most of my business is repeat and referral, thanks to you. I cannot ask for a better or more fun way to do business and help you.
When not with my clients, I enjoy country living where I dig dirt, and play with my rescue dog, Daisy. I thoroughly enjoy my adult kids, their spouses, and my grand dogs. Additionally, I love to read, write, cook, laugh, entertain, volunteer and socialize…from a distance. My new, and absolute favorite thing to do these days is spend time with my two brand new grandbabies or "GrandBerrys" as I love to call them. Two amazing little boys born January 2021 and June 2021. Life has never been better!
I consider it an absolute privlege to help people purchase or sell their home. I look forward to helping you soon, and thank you in advance for the opportunity to do so. I'll talk to you soon...
