A licensed REALTOR since 1995 and Washington State Certified Appraiser from 1992-2000, my specialized knowledge will help you reach your real estate goals - whether you're ready to buy or sell. Recently, I have earned the GreenRealEstate Specialist designation which is a distinctive and rare designation.
Keeping up with the changes and trends in this profession is an important part of my business and I make it a high priority to stay on top of the market as well as anticipating the future. My professional designations such as Green Real Estate Specialist, Accredited Buyers Agent and continuing education courses, on topics such as ethical real estate and buyer representation, real estate law and investment property analysis, mean you have a highly educated and professional Realtor on your side at all times.
As the owner/manager of rental properties in Seattle, I keep a keen eye on the changing investment markets in our region particularly in areas that offer both good returns as well as price appreciation.
I was raised in the Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle, and raised my children there as well. My knowledge of the greater Seattle area means that I can help you identify your perfect location and next home. My commitment to neighborhood goes beyond just living here. I've been a volunteer with Seattle Public Schools, the Queen Anne Helpline, The Multiple Sclerosis Society, the QA Chamber of Commerce and many others.
My love of the outdoors includes activities such as hiking and mushroom hunting, skiing, boating, fishing, crabbing and clamming. My extensive garden includes a variety of vegetables, herbs and fruits, which keeps me active outside.
Buying or selling a home is one of the most important financial decisions you will make. That's why I strive to make the process as personal and stress-free as possible. My strong listening and communication skills, as well as my sincere wish to provide you with the highest level of professional integrity are attributes you can rely on. You want and experienced professional on your side.
