I have been involved in the real estate industry for almost 30 years, first as a mortgage lender and bank manager and then as a Realtor. At the beginning of my real estate career, I was fortunate to be awarded Rookie of the Year for the Whatcom County Association of Realtors. In 2016, I served as President of WCAR and was honored to be named Realtor of the Year for 2017. I hold both the Certified Residential Specialist and Senior Real Estate Specialist designations which are awarded only to the top 3% of all Realtors in the nation. I also am a Certified Negotiation Expert. My training and experience in sales, marketing, negotiations allow me to achieve the best results for you in the demands of today's market.
Giving back to the community is important to me. I currently serve as a board member on the Windermere Foundation, as an Ambassador for the Bellingham Regional Chamber of Commerce and as a volunteer for the annual Whatcom Memorial Day parade. Previously I served on the Whatcom Community Nursing Advisory Board, was a founding board member of Communities in Schools, served on the Sovereign Lending Task Force for the State of Washington, was a board member of LAW Advocates, and taught First-Time Home Buyer classes as part of the House Key Program for the State of Washington. Recently I was honored as a finalist for the 2014 Professional Business Woman of the Year by Whatcom Women in Business and was awarded the 2016 Chamber Ambassador of the Year. All these community connections mean that I network with lots of buyers and sellers which help me create results for you!
I have always had a passion for real estate. Education and communication are a top priority for my clients which gives you in-depth knowledge and confidence throughout the process of buying or selling real estate. I utilize technology and social media as well as print advertising and public visibility with agent tours and open houses for my sellers and buyers. Windermere has the largest market share in Whatcom County so you get the widest market exposure amongst the best agents in the business for a faster purchase or sale. Let's get together and see how we can make your real estate dreams come true!
