My love for Real Estate runs deep and I can honestly say there is no better place to invest in homeownership than here in Arizona. Here we enjoy job stability and a fantastic climate, as well as a diverse climate throughout the state. We have plenty of entertainment and a strong return on investment. Arizona also has some of the top rated school districts in the country. Right here in the Phoenix metro area including Glendale and Peoria.

I have always been involved in Real Estate transactions in one form or another for most of my life. My parents built homes and started subdivisions in the mid-west. I witnessed them with their clients and friends over my entire childhood and was conditioned to believe in investing. I bought my first home in my early 20's and have owned 7 now while working on building number 8. I have owned them all in Arizona with the exception of two. Those were in Michigan. The longest I have lived in one home was just shy of four years. The entire 80 step real-estate transaction is exciting to me. To prepare for my Real Estate career, I have held positions in Customer Service, Sales, and Education.

After moving to Maricopa County, Arizona from Michigan 21 years ago, I held dual careers between education and sales. As an educator, I taught in both private and public schools, Directed a charter school, and have excelled in the education arena through my Principalship. I also honed my customer service, sales, and negotiation skills thanks to my professional experience with Diamond Resorts International, Discover Card Financial, Farmers Insurance, and Wells Fargo. I have won awards for my abilities to master my profession. I have juggled my careers while running a side business, continuing my education, and volunteering at the Y.M.C.A. Right now in life my motto is there is no time for down time.

After completing Real Estate training at Westford College, I transitioned into Real Estate full-time with CENTURY 21 – Northwest Realty, a J.D. Power and Associates winner in all four categories in Customer Satisfaction. When I am not busy helping clients, my favorite pastime is glass bead making. I have also raised my two young adult children on my own. I enjoy spending time with them. I take frequent road trips to many of the northern cities in Arizona and especially enjoy Coconino and Yavapai Counties. I love to explore and enjoy the diverse weather in Arizona. You will benefit from me living here in Arizona for the remainder of my life as I have already spent most of my adult life here. I see no reason to leave this beautiful state and will work with you now as well as in the future on one of your largest investments of a lifetime.
