Do I fit into what you want?
Representing my clients is an honor I take seriously and I take great care to manage each relationship efficiently, competently and with compassion. You are the center of the process. Your timeline, your needs, your wish list, your schedule, these drive the direction of the journey. You want results and I will deliver.
My job is to be there for you, professionally connecting the dots–the preparations, the financing, the searches, the pulse of the market, the title company, the emails and phone calls, the signings, the offers, the addenda, everything. Connecting the dots, that is what I do for you.
My goal is to buy or sell your property in a way that respects all parties involved while maximizing your interests. For me respect is all a part of relationship building and is the reason I have had the chance to walk alongside the same clients for many years as they have changed their life patterns and housing needs.
A little bit of who I am.
Born and raised in Montana, I grew up the first of seven children. I received my BA and MA from the University of Montana in Missoula and followed that with service as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Malaysia. I was a public high school teacher in NYC and then a High School Assistant Principal in Billings, Montana. Since 1985 I have lived in the same house (with various remodels) in the northeast Seattle. My husband and I started in Seattle as the owners of Great Harvest Bread Company, expanded and then sold them. We have raised children in the public school system and now have grandchildren located in Seattle, Bozeman, and Jackson Hole. I was also an active member of the Laurelhurst Community Club for years.
I have been a Windermere realtor since 2005. My clients have nominated me for 5-Star Real Estate Customer Satisfaction recognition for ten years. I enjoy this work immensely balanced with time off the grid in McCall, Idaho where I can ski, hike and paddle.
These experiences are the roots of who I am. The responsible older sibling, the socially conscious volunteer, the open minded teacher, the risk taking entrepreneur, the community building neighbor, the hardworking real estate agent on your side.
“I get to touch peoples’ lives with what I do. I am good at this and want to share it with you.” – from the movie Chef (2014). I hope to have the chance to share in your life through finding a new future or saying goodbye to the past, will you share your story with me?
