I love people and I love helping people realize their dreams. Above all I value integrity and kindness. I work hard in business and for my clients, many of whom have become dear friends over the years, and I value my colleagues and the mission we share. I learn everyday, thrive on new challenges and continue to keep up with the changing market. I've been selling real estate in the Sacramento area since 1994. With 25 wonderful years in Sacramento I have learned the neighborhoods “like the back of my hand”, watching growth and changes all over. I am a wealth of information and love to share my knowledge and help my clients in every way I can. I pride myself on my professionalism, sense of fairness, and keen negotiating skills.
I started my real estate career in Northern New Mexico in the mid 1980’s, working on some interesting trade deals with the Pueblo Indians. It was a learning experience, and makes for some good stories. I moved back to San Francisco in 1987 and went into a different field, managing art galleries in San Francisco and then in Los Angeles. Also an interesting time and rewarding on many levels. I managed art galleries in 1989 in S.F. and 1994 in L.A., so I was in charge of clean-up in the galleries after both earthquakes. Shortly after the Northridge quake I decided to move to Sacramento, buy a house near family in South Land Park, leave the shaking behind and move forward (as I had always planned to do) in my real estate career. It has been a good decision for so many reasons. I truly love to help make people's lives better, and I hope to make a difference in some of the lives I touch. I try to teach by example, exceed expectations, and pay it forward whenever I can.
I am a Lyon Mentor at the Downtown office and take that responsibility very seriously as I know I am a big influence in how their careers take shape and how professional they are as Lyon agents and Realtors in our community.
I'm also an involved member of the Sacramento Association of Realtors. Chair of the Marketing/Communications Committee for 2017 and 2018. And 2016-2020 Member of the Masters Club Steering Committee and a Life Member since 2004. I proudly coordinate the Realtor volunteer program serving meals to the homeless guests at Loaves & Fishes. This is one of the most rewarding experiences I've ever had.
I am always available to help with any real estate questions, or anyone wanting to buy or sell.
