On a personal note, I met my husband of 38 years now at Central Washington University. We have an awesome family of three adult children that have blessed us with three Grandchildren and another blessing on the way! My family is the highlight of my life. My hobbies are golfing, swimming, reading and travel. We enjoy taking road trips to see the sights and have a European Cruise scheduled for this fall. We have been waiting three years to go on this adventure! Lastly, we have our very loved and spoiled doggie that is 10 years old. He lives quite the pampered life!
Here is a brief bio of my real estate experience and expertise. My real estate career spans over twenty years as an independent realtor. I started my career in Lake Tapps, WA. I sold real estate around the lake as well as in the surrounding communities. I have sold over one hundred and thirty-five homes to date.
I was raised in Wenatchee, WA. Growing up in Wenatchee we spent every summer on Lake Chelan. I know the Chelan and Manson communities well! After graduation from Central Washington University, I married the love of my life and moved to the West Side, where we built our forever family home in beautiful Lake Tapps, WA and raised our family for the next twenty-five years. I began my career in real estate in 2000.
We bought a lot in Lake Chelan in 2013. We then found an architect and worked with him to design our dream retirement home. In 2014 we hired a local builder, and our custom home was completed in 2015. It is a process, so if you are building a custom home, I’m your agent!
Recently, my husband retired after thirty-four years at the Boeing Company, and we moved full time, to beautiful Lake Chelan. I decided to continue my real estate career with Coldwell Banker Cascade in Eastern Washington. We love everything about the Lake Chelan community. Since I began helping my clients buy and sell homes in Lake Chelan, Manson, Orondo, Entiat, Wenatchee, East Wenatchee & Leavenworth, I was quick to realize I needed my Coldwell Banker Luxury Home Certification. To do this you must qualify with at least three home sales over a million dollars in the last two years, then take a course on Luxury listings, as well as have a vast Luxury Market expertise to become certified. I have completed my Coldwell Banker Global Luxury Home Certification this June 2022.
I am a graduate of Central Washington University with a major in Business Administration. I am a passionate real estate agent who is driven and has the energy of three real estate agents! My skills are focused on building long-term relationships with my clients. I like to think of myself as their lifetime realtor. Many of my past clients are now my forever clients, friends, and families. I even have the pleasure of being a real estate guide to their adult children! My strength is a relationship based on the ability to connect, build trust and honesty. This has helped me in every transaction I have ever entered. I am skilled, can keep my composure and can immediately launch into a problem-solving mode if necessary. This allows my clients to feel they are in good hands with an experienced realtor and businesswoman. Having positive negotiation skills allows me to represent my clients effectively and keep my client’s goals in the forefront.
When I work with sellers to showcase a home, no detail is overlooked. Likewise, buyers trust my drive and discerning eye to find their dream Lake Chelan property. No matter the size, you will always get personalized and thoughtful attention from me. I want each of my clients to know that there is nothing more important to me than satisfaction and peace of mind in their property sale or purchase. At the end of the day, I encompass the Lake Chelan attitude of living where you love. One transaction at a time.
If you still have any specific questions about my professional experience, I am available to you twenty-four seven, which is not always the case with realtors. I understand that buying or selling real estate can be an overwhelming feat and I want it to help you fulfill your dreams.
I would love the opportunity to assist you or a family member on the journey of buying or selling your Chelan home. Contact me today to discuss the next steps in working together.
