I am a full-time REALTOR and born and raised in Santa Cruz. I became a realtor to flip houses with my contractor husband. I found that I was really good at helping others in the stressful but rewarding process of acquiring and protecting real estate assets. Ten years later my goal remains to help my clients thru the challenging time of making large financial decisions and protecting their interests in every step of the sale or purchase transaction.
I live by the Realtor Code of Ethics. My highest obligation is to see that my clients are fully informed so they can make the best decision for them. I work with a team of professionals, both in lending and inspecting, who's goal, like mine, is to offer the best service in the industry and make your transaction as smooth and satisfactory as humanly possible.
The cornerstones of my real estate practice are:
Communication…. tailored to fit your needs
Integrity …………...do the right thing
Honesty …….. I will tell you what you need to
hear (whether you like it or not)
Success…..thru hard work, knowledge, and experience!
I have successfully completed advanced real estate training and designations in the areas of Luxury Home Marketing Specialist, Senior Real Estate Specialist ((SRES), Short Sale Negotiating (HAFA CHS) Internet Marketing (E-Pro), Santa Cruz County Pro Designation; CAR Residential REO Buyer Representative; Realtor.com Award of Marketing Excellence and a member of Women's Council of Realtors and the Certified Residential Specialists. I have received the Circle of Champions award from Bailey Properties (top performance) in 2011, 2012, and 2013 as well as top listing agent in Scotts Valley Office 2010 and 2013
I am a UCSC graduate in psychology and later completed my Masters in Education and Counseling from USC while living in Germany. In my spare time, I enjoy skiing, scuba diving, travel, gardening and relaxing with family and friends.
