I am dedicated to quality customer service and believe continuing education and training is a priority to be able to provide my clients with the latest information and strategies on our ever-changing market.
REALTOR®, GRI, AHWD, CHMS
I am an agent with John Hall & Associates and certified in the Federal At Home With Diversity program. As a REALTOR® with the GRI designation I have taken an additional 100 hours of comprehensive education and passed subject exams over and above what an average licensee takes. My training includes foreclosure and short sales plus 1031 Tax Deferred Exchanges for today's market.
As a Certified Home Marketing Specialist I have the unique ability to position your property to compete for sale and obtain market price within market time. Almost 75% of a buyer's first impressions of the homes' interior are controllable and I educate my sellers how they can make the best impression using staging and "upstaging."
I also have an extensive background in interactive and broadcast media which I apply to marketing my clients' homes for sale. Combined with my real estate education and professionalism my background provides for a solid foundation to guide you through the process of inspections, deadlines and negotiation to get the "sold" sign you want. Contact me to find out what I can do to help you list and sell your current home and/or search and purchase your next one.
I am professionally committed to my clients needs and goals. Call me and "Get Ready To Be Moved."

Like a large number of residents, I am a transplant (Wisconsin cheesehead). In 20+ years as a resident of the Phoenix metropolitan area a large portion of that time was spent seeing the city as only a local broadcaster can, following the politics, the cultural growth and the influence new residents have made to our continuously expanding market.
A background comprised of technology management, marketing and media with over 20 years living in Arizona makes me an expert on the metropolitan area and the ability to thoroughly market your home. My commitment to technology, superb affiliations and utilization of a wealth of programs from entry level to the luxury home and commercial markets; taking the marketing of your home and the search for your next one locally, nationally, globally.
As the Former National Director, Program and Project Manager for the AMBER Alert Web Portal, I worked closely with law enforcement and I still encourage other parents to protect their children from predators through education and identification.
I am proud to be an Emmy nominated former Webmaster for a local TV network affiliate in Phoenix. My expertise was in creating and producing interactive content for our station's news, marketing and sales departments.
I managed content for the web while at another local television news station in Phoenix. The local broadcasting market supplied me with a wealth of knowledge about our local legislators, state representatives and other government officials. Lifelong friendships were forged as well as a deep respect for our emergency services workers.
Arizona is a diverse state that my children and I enjoy exploring as often as possible. Springtime hikes in the desert, summers splashing in the pool and local waterparks, to snowboarding and skiing just a couple of hours away during our beautiful and mild winters. I can't think of a single reason to give up all that Arizona offers, which is why I love helping others find their new home here, too. When you're ready to see all that Arizona has to offer, call me and "Get Ready To Be Moved."
As a television webmaster I was nominated in 2004 for a Rocky Mountain Emmy Award, Interactivity category.
In 2006 my AMBER Alert web portal team became a Computerworld Honors Program Laureate.
A 20+ years resident of Arizona with a technology & marketing background. As a Certified Home Marketing Specialist I position properties through staging to optimize price & minimize market time.
