Born and raised in Nebraska, I was ingrained at an early age with what many refer to as “Mid-Western Values”. Respect for others, staying true to your word, and always doing your best were common themes around the house – along with friendliness and a good sense of humor! After moving to Arizona in 1985, I started my business career in banking, where I developed a love for customer service delivered with a personal touch. A humble start as a receptionist for a well-known bank in Tucson, Arizona, evolved into a teller position, then Accounts Manager, and then my favorite role - as a Personal Banker. Dealing with customers ranging from a teenager opening their first savings account to Corporate Business Accounts, I quickly adapted to the needs of each individual client. After moving to Phoenix in 1991, I discovered an interest in real estate and immediately worked on getting a Real Estate license. I felt like I had “won the lottery” when I was fortunate enough to secure a position as a New Homes Sales Specialist and spent nearly two decades selling for some of the most reputable New Home Builders in the Valley of the Sun. A few years ago, I decided that I wanted to be able to offer my clients any kind of home they desired – a new build, resale, mobile home – even a treehouse if that’s what they want! My personal goal is to connect with each client in a way that lets them know someone is working on their behalf that considers them like family. My extensive experience allows me to guide each client through the buying and selling process with clear communication and discussion of expectations.
