More About Me
I'm a Windermere Real Estate broker with the National Association of Realtor's Green Designation. I'm passionate about green living and sustainable, energy-efficient housing and love passing on that knowledge to my clients.

I've lived in Snohomish County nearly my entire life and have a strong appreciation for this area and its unique communities. On my website, www.northsoundliving, I write about life and real estate in the North Sound, and offer green tips and suggestions for cutting utility costs and lessening your carbon footprint.

Although my office is located in north Snohomish County, I've served clients in Whatcom, King and Pierce counties as well.

For my buyers, I provide a one-year home warranty for their peace of mind (and mine! :) For all of my clients, I provide a pen & ink and watercolor rendering of their home after we've closed. For sellers, this is a memento of the home they're leaving; for buyers, I will create postcards from that painting so they can inform their friends and family of their move. I love working with both sellers and buyers, but I do have a special fondness for first-time buyers. I enjoy the chance to explain the process and walk through each step with them, and feel very privileged to be the one who gets to hand keys over to someone making their very first home purchase. I truly love what I do!
When it came time to begin my career in real estate, there was no question about which firm I would join. I wanted to align myself with the best, so I chose Windermere. As an outsider, I knew Windermere was a top-notch brokerage; as an insider, I have been consistently impressed with the quality of service our firm extends to our clients. "The client's best interest is what matters most" is not just an adage -- it's a mindset at Windermere. I'm delighted to work with people who truly care about the people we serve.
The most compelling and satisfying aspect of Real Estate for me is the chance to meet new people. You are the fascinating part of this journey, and I am thankful for the opportunity to walk a bit of it with you. In addition to having a thorough understanding of this area, I’m a skilled communicator and a rigorous negotiator. Whether you’re looking for your first home or downsizing in those empty nest years, as your realtor, I am your advocate, and I will bring every skill I possess to the table.
