Thanks for taking a moment to learn more about me! I have sold real estate in Central New York since 2003 and I love my job more and more every year. Rarely does one get an opportunity to impact so many lives on such a personal level... So, I consider it an honor to work with people at this stage of their lives. That feeling and care translates into my work and it makes a big difference to my clients and our transactions. I've had the good fortune to among the top real estate agents in the area for many years, so it's working!
When I became a REALTOR, I launched my website, CazHomes.com, one of only a handful of personal sites at the time, and was on the leading edge of real estate technology in the area. An early adopter of social media, I pride myself on being connected to the public to be a consistent, reliable source of information on everything from real estate to community events. I serve on several local board of directors, including Cazenovia Children's House, Cazenovia Preservation Foundation, and Cazenovia Area Community Development Association. I'm a member of our elementary school PTA, coach baseball, and am an avid supporter/promoter of local businesses and farms. Along with lots of other activities! On the personal side, my husband, Mike (Colgate '98), and my two boys, Jack and William, are my world, but I'm lucky that they are so supportive my real estate passion.
I was born and raised in nearby Hamilton, NY, and graduated from Hamilton Central School where I was a three-sport athlete. I went on to Ithaca College to study Sociology and Sport Studies and was a four-year athlete on the Division III softball team, earning All-America honors twice and making four appearances in the NCAA tournament. After college I went on to play in Europe for one season before moving home. You might be thinking, "Is that relevant to your real estate profile?" And I would have to say, "Yes!" I'm fiercely competitive and confident, but in a way that makes me care more about people and results. I also know how to work hard and make sacrifices to reach a goal- characteristics you want on your side.
While I work and live in Cazenovia, NY, I do cover all of Central New York, most often Manlius, Fayetteville, Syracuse, Jamesville, Dewitt, Pompey, Hamilton, Morrisville and more... No need to restrict the love and care I give my clients to just Caz! When you find a good real estate agent, stick with them and they'll stick with you. I had clients take me with them out near Cooperstown and to the eastern suburbs of Rochester!
I hope this has told you a little more about me. It's nice when people feel like they know me before they email or call. If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to ask. I'm here when you need me!
