Return to Olympia
A long-time resident of the Olympia area I have over 20 years’ experience in the residential mortgage loan industry, and I enjoy being able to share that knowledge with my clients, particularly first-time homebuyers. I was inspired to enter the field of real estate by my fascination with real estate transactions and local markets, an ideal combination with my commitment to outstanding customer service.
Prior to real estate I oversaw the customer service division of a large residential mortgage lender, and my commitment to friendly and thorough customer service is a part of everything I do. I even worked for the Walt Disney Company, arguably the world leader in customer-service training! My goal is to help meet the unique needs of every home buyer and seller with the highest standards of integrity, respect, hard work, honesty, and attention to detail. I strive to think “one step ahead” and anticipate needed actions and possible outcomes throughout every step of the home buying/selling process.
I am a member of the National Association of REALTORS, and have earned their certifications in community diversity, technology in marketing, and military relocation. I enjoy learning about new technologies (a constantly-changing field!) and strive to incorporate them into my real estate transactions to make processes simpler and faster for my clients.
I believe in being a contributing member of this amazing community where we live! I am a currently a board member of the Patrons of South Sound Cultural Arts, a group devoted to supporting local arts organizations and students in the arts. With Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Music I am active as a music instructor and performer, and am a member of the Olympia Symphony Orchestra. I also enjoy studying foreign languages and cultures and I love to travel, particularly to the resorts of the Walt Disney Company—just ask me!
