I feel like a Californian, but I actually grew up in Ireland, where I earned a degree in Education and began my teaching career. I moved to California in 1985, got married and continued as an educator while raising our three children. My lifelong love of music led to me becoming the music director at my church in 1990, a position which continues to bring me tremendous joy. When our youngest daughter, Katie graduated from Junior High in 2012, I knew that it was time for me to graduate too!
Why Real Estate?
My love affair with Real Estate began almost 16 years ago when I was buying my first home. When I began investing a few years later, buying my first income property, I was really hooked. Getting my real estate license was the logical next step. 32yrs as an educator has honed my skills as a visionary leader, a creative innovator, and a valued negotiator and collaborator.
I know that when you are buying, selling or investing in real estate, you are making the biggest financial decisions of your life. I take this very seriously. My job is to protect your best interests and help you understand every step of the transaction so that you can make informed decisions. You can rely on me to continuously communicate with you and handle any challenges without delay. My well-honed negotiation skills will result in you receiving the highest value for the home you are selling, and paying the right price when you buy. I have allied myself with a high caliber team of professionals that provide transaction coordination, home loans, title reports, home warranty, escrow services, natural hazard disclosures, attorneys, etc. which will guarantee a seamless Real Estate transaction for you.
I hold additional accreditations in SRES (Senior Real Estate Specialist), which uniquely qualifies me to assist seniors in housing sales and purchase, and NCREA (National Commercial Real Estate Advisor), with a focus on Mixed Use and Multi-Family Properties.
