Buying or selling a home is one of the most important financial and emotional decisions you make in your lifetime. You want to choose a trustworthy, caring professional with a proven record and strong business and people skills. Since 2005, I have helped thousands of people move. My sold price to list price ratios are solid and my Cumulative Days on Market (CDOM) are below industry averages (see Just the Facts).
As a past owner in a corporate wellness publishing company, I understand the need to focus on the fine details while keeping an eye on the ever-changing big picture. I was responsible for Business Development and Sales and in 16 years grew a small, single product company into a multimillion-dollar international company with a full line of products. My partners and I sold the company in 2005 to a large national publisher. As a native of Seattle, I value the uniqueness of the neighborhoods in the Puget Sound area and choosing real estate as my subsequent career was an exciting next move.
I love people. I love learning about them, their lives, families, hopes, fears, dreams. Even more, I love helping them achieve their dreams and transition as comfortably as possible to their next chapter. I am a clear communicator and an even better listener. Every transaction is as different as the people involved and I am comfortable moving as quickly or as patiently through the process as needed.
As a graduate of Colorado College, I am a lifelong learner. The real estate industry changes dramatically from year to year and it is important to keep current. I constantly study market data and trends and work diligently to improve my skills and knowledge base. This continued commitment to education has resulted in receiving several designations, among them SRES (Senior Real Estate Specialist) and MCNE (Master level Certified Negotiation Expert).
I have four full time staff who help me take exceptional care of you. Summer assists our sellers prepare their home for market, Rory helps with our buyers, Lynette oversees marketing, listing launches and business administration and Barb handles everything else including transaction management. We are all committed to phenomenal customer care and see to it that no small detail is overlooked. We work closely with vendors, lenders, title and escrow so that your transaction will close smoothly and in a timely manner. Our goal is to surprise and delight you every step of the way.
I am your delegate from the time you hire me through closing and beyond. I represent you with the utmost commitment, loyalty, and determination. Your goals are mine and I am not satisfied until I help you attain them!
I receive the majority of my business through referrals and know that only by delivering above-and-beyond service and results will I continue to do so.
I look forward to working with you!
