I was born in Kansas, the third of four daughters. My parents made each of us feel special and that’s how I treat my clients and customers. I want each of them to have a unique and positive experience when buying or selling their home. I do this by providing excellent customer service and keeping a positive attitude.
Prior to real estate, I earned my B.S. in Computer Science at Oklahoma University and enjoyed fourteen years in the business world developing business systems for the state government and the hospitality and foodservice industries. Little did I know back then that computers would soon rule our world! Thankfully, those skills have helped me to provide effective and efficient service to my real estate customers.
I was first licensed in Oklahoma in 1993 and then moved with my husband to Santa Fe in 1996. I love it here and never want to leave. The climate, cuisine and small town/big attitude living is just wonderful. That’s why I give back to the community through volunteering. I worked with the public school H.O.S.T.S. reading program for fourteen years. I also served on the Board of Trustees for Southwestern College. I currently serve on the Board of Directors for Rancho Viejo South Home Owners Association. And I continuous to volunteer for the Santa Fe Association of Realtors in a variety of capacities.
In order to further my education I have earned several designations. I am a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), an Accredited Buyers Representative (ABR), and a Graduate of the Realtor Institute (GRI), all three designations are awarded through the National Association of Realtors. I also earned my Eco Broker certification. I want to keep abreast of new practices, laws and information so that I can maintain a level of excellence when working with my clients. I find real estate to be a very rewarding career. I can use my knowledge, expertise and skills when working with buyers and sellers and help them through the process of buying and selling real estate. Sometimes buying or selling isn’t in their best interest. There are always options to explore.
As I mentioned, I love the climate in Santa Fe and hike in the area and local mountains whenever possible. I enjoy dancing at Santa Fe’s local venues. I also enjoy cooking, working in the yard and a variety of needle work. I sneak in a few minutes almost every day, and sometimes hours, of reading, a past time carried over from childhood and one I hope never to lose.
So I hope you will also fall in love with Santa Fe if you are not already here. I’d love to help make a positive difference in your life.
