Originally from MN, I have lived in Phoenix for 25 years. I have been a realtor for the past five years working with home buyers, sellers, and rental properties throughout the valley.
I have two grown children who are graduates of ASU. Also, I mentor two foster children and am an active member of Arizonans for Children. I love the outdoors and traveling when time permits.
Prior to practicing real estate, I obtained my Master of Education Degree and taught the 7th grade for 15 years. Being a real estate agent is a bit like teaching.
I also love to use extra time to volunteer for the following organizations: Hospice of the Valley, Arizonans for Children, Feed my Starving Children, and the Philanthropists of AZ.
A real estate agent’s job is to guide your clients through the home buying or selling process, essentially teaching or educating them about each step. They need help navigating through the process – similar to how students need help navigating a new subject. Home buyers and sellers have questions – the real estate agent provides the answers in a way that is understood. The real estate agent needs to show patience and understanding in trying to help the home seller or buyer achieve their goal. Just like a teacher needs to show patience and find a way to help each student achieve their learning goal.
I love helping people and seeing their happiness when they finally get those keys in their hands, and become an official home owner!
