In the world today, technology is everything. From mobile phones to laptops, electric cars, Wi-Fi controlled gadgets, and a home filled with techy stuff. Selling a house might become a frustrating ordeal sometimes for various reasons listed below

  • Having a beautiful home in a bad neighborhood. Buyers might not even want to come to have a look at your property because of your property's location. 
  • The time factors. People have busy lives and tight schedules. Taking out time to look at property might be a problem for a buyer. 

These and many other reasons are why a seller might get frustrated over the sale of a property. Since the introduction of phones and the internet, life has been a lot easier and you can do a lot with just a touch of a button.

Buyer & Seller Agent

PERSONAL

Born and raised in the Sacramento area (Fair Oaks), real estate has always been "in my blood" perhaps, due in part to growing up in a builder family. I graduated from Bella Vista High School, attended California Lutheran College, later graduated from CSUS (Sacramento) with a degree in Communications and a minor in Business Administration. In 1993, I moved to Reno to work for a Fortune 500 company and obtained formal sales training. I've always been involved with some sort of extra-curricular activities including sports, music, dance and theatre. My current hobbies include spending time with my family, gardening, an occasional game of golf and volunteering with various youth programs and organizations. I'm Past Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Mountain View Montessori School. 

PROFESSIONAL

Real Estate is my business, my only business. I have been a full service realtor with over 24 years of experience. My focus is helping my client achieve their real estate goals, whether they are first-time homebuyers, Seniors, buyers/sellers, investors, short sales or relocation. I specialize in new construction communities and residential resale in Washoe County.

I truly love this area and take great pride to know much more, than that which is expected. Every transaction is unique and can often require a creative solution to get results. I'm a customer driven Realtor dedicated to achieving results and providing exceptional service. I feel that this is the reason I receive an abundance of referrals from past clients.

As a buyer’s agent, I listen to my client’s goals so I can find the perfect home and NEGOTIATE the best price and terms that fits their needs. As a seller agent, I know that pricing, location and condition are key factors in selling homes for the highest price possible. With this in mind, I create a customized marketing plan specifically for your home.

Please feel free to call, text, or email me with any questions, anytime.
