I Grew Up On Fox Island, WA - Near Gig Harbor. I Come From A Long List Of Home Builders And Watched My Father Build Many Homes, Including The One I Grew Up In. Most People Who Know Me Know That I Have A Fascination With Home Design And A Major Curiosity With A Home’s History. I Particularly Love Old Homes; The Older, The Better. The First Home I Was Apart Of Rehabbing Was A 1925 Craftsman In Ballard, And The Second Was A 1908 Prairie-Bungalow, Which Was To Have Been Built By One Of Frank Lloyd Wright's Drafters. I Have A Passion For Being Able To Respect A Homes Past By Taking Care Of It And Making It New, So It Has The Ability To Have A Future For Years To Come. My Intrigue With Design, The Real Estate Industry And Working With People Created An Atmosphere For Me Expand Into A Career Of Being A Realtor.
When I Am Not Working Or In The Midst Of A Renovation, You Can Find Me Chasing After My Three Little Ankle Biters, Errrrr, I Mean My Lovable Children. I Am A Lover Of Running, Listening To Good Music While Making Delicious Food And Spending Quality Time With My Family And Friends.
I Love To Learn New Things And Strive To Always Think Outside The Box. I Highly Dislike The Word “No”, As I Believe There Is Always A Way. I Am A Firm Believer That If You Try Hard Enough And Spend The Time, You Can Always Find A Way To Make Something Work.
Ballard Has Been My Home For More Than 10 Years And I Have Absorbed Myself In Its Amazing Community. Three Years Ago, I Myself Was In The Home Buying Process Which Enabled Me To Explore The Greater Seattle Area. I Was Able To Learn And Know More About The Schools, Parks, Walkability And Special Characteristics Of The Many Neighborhoods That Make Up Seattle. It Was A Great Refresher To The Ever Growing And Up And Coming Pockets Of Our Surrounding Areas. Seattle Is A Mover And A Shaker, With Not Much Sleep, Kind Of Like Myself. :-) It Is Expanding At An Exorbitant Rate And More People Are Spilling Into Our Area Than Most Have Ever Seen. This Is A Great Time For Sellers, But Not So Much Buyers, Which Has Helped In Creating This Crazy Market We Are In Now.
I Have A Creative And Active Mind That I Have A Hard Time Shutting Off. I Find Fulfillment In Taking Charge Of Whatever Is In Front Of Me, Which Has Been A Huge Benefit To My Clients Throughout Their Home Buying And Selling Process. Buying And/Or Selling A Home Can Be Very Exciting, But It Can Also Be One Of The Most Stressful Times In A Person's Life. It Can Be Emotionally Draining, Financially Weighing, And Filled With Many Questions. "Am I Making The Right Decision?" Or "Is This Location The Best Fit For My Family?" I Continue To Remember The Hesitation And Second Guessing I Had When Going Through All Of My Own Personal Buying And Selling Experiences. It Is My Goal To Make This Time As Stress Free And Positive As Possible. And I Will Remind You, As A Client, What An Exciting And Powerful Experience “Your” Process Is.
I Work With Passion And Will Be Your Biggest Advocate.
