My husband and I built our craftsman bungalow in Harbert in 1999. We enjoyed it as our second home until 2003 when we moved here full time. We don’t have children of our own, so it was important for me to create a place that my ten nieces and nephews could make special memories. One of the best parts of my job is being able to find that place for other families.
I graduated from Michigan State University with BA in communication. Most of my career was spent as an entrepreneur, owning and managing a successful wholesale lumber company. This experience provided me with business and managerial skills, intuitiveness and compassion for others, as well as a great understanding of home construction. I know the area very well. As an active volunteer with the Chamber and other community organizations I have a good understanding of this beautiful corner of SW Michigan.
Once we moved here full-time I knew real estate was the perfect fit. I have taken my real estate career very seriously and have spent the last thirteen years continuing to study the profession. Through specialized training and experience I have earned designations such as Accredited Buyer’s Representative, Certified Residential Specialist, Resort & Second Home Property Specialist, Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist and most recently a Certified Negotiation Expert. This additional training is important in marketing, helping clients appropriately price their property, advising clients in responding to offers, and developing negotiation strategies.
