A little bit about me...
And why I love real estate
Anyone who has stepped foot in a Nordstrom store understands the value that organization places on customer service. And if you think the focus is obvious to the outside observer, you should see how it feels for those who work there. I did, for years – and I loved it! I thrive in an environment where customers come first, and where every detail matters. In fact, between various careers, I have 30 years of experience in customer service industries. That’s why, when I decided to change careers in 2005, real estate was an obvious choice for me!
A lot of real estate agents talk about great service – but not many deliver what they promise. While I deliver extraordinary care to my clients, it doesn’t stop there. I do what most agents don’t – I carefully track and analyze the real estate market to spot trends and identify opportunities for my clients. I know which geographic areas, and which price points are “hot” … and which are “cold”. That’s data that’s critically important to the success of your real estate transaction.
Regardless of current market conditions, you can rest assured that I am committed to meeting your needs.
I approach each and every client’s situation with a mindset of ethics, enthusiasm, and energy. You can count on me to support your goals through my actions. Along the way, I’ll share information and my opinion about how you can maximize results. After all, we are working together to help you reach your dreams, and I hope to be your real estate advisor – not just for a single “transaction”, but for life!
As a Realtor® I embrace a strict code of ethics, and a responsibility to continually improve my knowledge and skill base. As part of these efforts I am an Accredited Staging Professional, and am Green-Certified. These aren’t designations I’ve learned simply for the sake of my continuing education responsibilities; the knowledge I’ve gained offer concrete benefits for my clients.
I welcome the opportunity to hear about your real estate dreams – and to help you achieve them.
When not working, I participate in many outdoor activities. Snowshoeing, cycling, hiking, and gardening are a few of these. You may not know that I am an avid “stair climber”! Each year I participate in “The Big Climb”, scaling 1,311 stairs in a fundraiser to benefit the Lymphoma & Leukemia Society. Of course, I have an “indoor” side as well. I enjoy the arts, ballet, movies, and plays.
I have lived in the Seattle area most of my life and have a home in North Seattle where I enjoy spending time with my husband, family, friends, and our black lab, Bowser.
