I Began my real estate career in 1989 after working many years in manufacturing management positions. I
became interested in real estate first as a hobby--I just loved to visit Open Houses! Soon, I was contacting
friends and family to tell them I had 'found' them the perfect home. Several friends actually purchased the
homes I had 'found' for them which encouraged me to turn my hobby into a full-time career.
These days I often provide real estate services to several generations of one family. First-time home
buyers, move-up buyers and Seniors typically have different housing needs and goals. In 2007, I earned
my Century 21 'Mature Moves' Certification which enables me to better counsel and assist seniors with
housing transitions to a smaller home, assisted living community or retirement home.
The past few years has brought upheaval to the real estate market leaving many potential homebuyers with special challenges. Despite the elimination of many mortgage programs for these buyers,
there are still options available for many to achieve the dream of owning a home. I strive to stay abreast of
the latest federal, state and city lending and grant programs to help these buyers achieve home ownership.
After 20 years as a Fort Wayne Area Realtor, I continue to find my career fulfilling and personally rewarding. My
business has grown largely by referrals from satisfied clients. I am extremely proud that most every past
client has referred me to friends and family and/or hired me again. My client's goals, needs and desires are
important to me. I strive to practice real estate with the utmost professionalism and integrity which has
enabled me to earn numerous Top Sales and Top Listings awards throughout my real estate career as well
as the respect of my peers.
