I love to play architect, designer and creative director. And while I'm technically none of those things anymore. I do have a keen sense of design, color and balance. Cultivated through my career in high level sales, negotiations, marketing, over two decades as owner of my own interior design company and CEO of the International Feng Shui Guild.
After spending years in the design community I realized that I wanted to form a more meaningful relationship with and make a bigger positive impact in the lives of those I work with. So, I decided to become a Realtor®…but not your average Realtor®.
You may be surprised to hear that the average person owns between 3-5 homes in their lifetime. What surprised me, was how so many people perceive the experience of buying or selling a home as a cold, impersonal transaction. As a Realtor®, I make a point of getting to know homeowners before we choose to work together. I understand how personal dynamics shapes a home buyer’s or seller’s perspective and I believe strongly that in order to achieve your goals, it is imperative that we work well together and that I understand what's important to you.
If we are preparing your home for sale, you can be confident that our marketing materials, strategy and the staging of your home are top-notch. If we are searching for your next home, I'll be listening to your desires and aspirations and keeping an eye out for properties with potential to become that ideal house for you.
Whether you own a luxury home, are a first-time home buyer, are relocating across the country or just relocating across town, you're not a house or a price point, to me you’re special. And I’ll do my best to help you achieve your homeownership goals.
Real estate isn't just about selling houses or closing transactions,
real estate is about people and relationships.
My husband and I began our lives together living in Lake Oswego and working in Portland. Over 30 years later we chose to return and make the Lake Oswego/Portland area our home and we've never regretted a single moment.
We love everything about this area. In fact, when I'm not busy working with my buyers or sellers, you can find me enjoying one of our fabulous local eateries, wineries or taking our dog for a walk at one of our many local trails, parks or soaking up the sun at the river or just lounging at the lake. The Portland lifestyle truly has something for everyone.
