How Does Your Work Enable You to Connect to and Fulfill Your Life Purpose/Passion?

I love connecting and building relationships with people while helping them attain their home goals!

Who Is Your Ideal Client and Why?

As a listing specialist, I enjoy working with clients who have lived in their homes for many years and need help in preparing their homes for sale. I know how overwhelming and emotional it can be and use my expertise in downsizing to help get them through it! I also enjoy working with first time homebuyers, helping guide them through the process of finding their perfect home! I love being a part of this exciting time in their lives and surround myself with professionals who do their utmost to make their first home transaction seamless and enjoyable with lots of smiles around the closing table!

What Unique Offerings Do You Provide?

I offer complimentary home staging, professional photography and video services to all my listing clients. I also offer expertise in downsizing seniors whether they are selling a home and/or looking to move into a senior community.

Who Was Your Role Model Growing Up? How Did That Person’s Actions Impact You?

My mother will always be my role model. Always in service to others, she was a nurse specializing in working with seniors. While raising 5 kids, she worked the 11pm-7am shift yet somehow managed to take care of the house, volunteer in various organizations, have dinner on the table when my father got home from work and rarely was seen without a smile. Whenever I am in question, I often ask myself “what would Mom have done?”
