When tasked with writing about myself, it really does seem just that … a task. I would have absolutely NO hesitation writing about others! But as this is “About Me”, I will endeavor to be as forthright as possible.
I am a midwestern girl who relocated to the Denver area from Iowa in the mid 70’s, and promptly fell in love with the mountain ranges, the ever-changing weather, the sports, and the people. Other than a brief period spent on Florida’s Gulf Coast, I have continued to call Colorado my home.
After raising two amazing daughters who have since become my best friends, I was at a cross-roads in my life. I had been in advertising, writing medical scripts for a nationally aired television program, but really needed to make a change. I decided to trade the panoramic views of the Rocky Mountains for the tranquil beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. I then began what I have found to be one of the most rewarding and enjoyable careers I have had – Real Estate!
Real Estate … I remember so vividly my very first transaction as an agent; I was later told that the problems we encountered were some that just didn’t happen very often! I found that my innate problem-solving gene kicked in and accomplished for my buyer what may have otherwise stopped this deal dead in its tracks.
“If you can’t get your buyer to the closing table – then bring the closing table to your buyer!” There are many lessons to be learned from each relationship and from each transaction. This first closing experience, with all of its obstacles and surprises was a successful one. Having been able to coordinate the signing of documents and exchange of keys in a hospital waiting room, I left with a true feeling of accomplishment, having made home ownership a reality for my buyer in a very trying time in her life. I drove down the road and said to myself, “I LOVE THIS!” This is how I felt on Day One – this is how I feel today.
Family ties took me from Denver to Florida and family ties have brought me back! So, here I am – with a career I love – in a place I love.
This is MY Real Story…what’s yours? Real Estate … Real People with Real Lives!
As a full-time Real Estate agent, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about both buying and selling real estate. I love the “match making” process of introducing buyers to their future homes. I also work tirelessly for sellers and am truly sincere about helping in any way I can.
Here are some of the things I can do for you …
Find Your Next Home! You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I will work with you to find the right home at the right price.
Sell Your Home! When it’s time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics! Often buyers don’t visualize living in “your” home the way you do. I will look at your home with an objective eye and give you suggestions, which may very well help you get top dollar; things like minor staging the home, making repairs or small improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that’s sold fast.
Whether buying or selling…I’ve worked both sides of the closing table…let me work for you!
Thanks and I look forward to assisting in all of your real estate needs!
