Professional, hardworking, enthusiastic and committed to excellence!

I am committed to first class service.  I enjoy helping folks find a new home or sell their current home.  I work West Seattle, greater Seattle and Eastside areas in Residential and Commercial sales, and also in Vacant Land Development.  My 10 years in real estate has repeatedly demonstrated that we are in the transaction together and, as your agent, I will work tirelessly to protect your best interests while making your dreams come true.  I'm passionate about what I do and will truly listen to your needs and desires.  I want to be your agent before, during and after the transaction.

Keeping the transaction process smooth and simple

Buying or selling a home can feel like an overwhelming process.  I strive to create a holistic real estate process: one that is straight forward and honest.  I communicate clearly and frequently with my clients.  Based on my extensive expertise and backed by award winning Prudential Northwest Realty, I will provide you with what you need to make fully informed decisions.

Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE)

Any realtor will tell you they prefer a normal transaction over a short sale, but in this market, it's imperative to know how to navigate the selling and buying of short sales and other distressed properties.  Who's afraid of the big bad short sale?  Not me. Many of us are experiencing financial hardship and that frequently impacts our largest asset, our home.  I became a Certified Distressed Property Expert to intelligently and compassionately assist my clients who find themselves under water or have questions about distressed properties.  I offer expertise in short sales and foreclosures.  And if I can't answer a question, I will reach out to my network of colleagues who can.  If you want an agent to help you list a home as a short sale or to purchase a short sale, I would love to be of service to you.

Artist and Designer

My formal education is in the arts, with a BA from Wesleyan University in Connecticut and an MFA from University of Washington. I have exhibited and sold my art in Los Angeles, New York and Seattle.  My experience in fine art, architectural design, construction, remodeling and interior design can be a valuable asset for you.  I have a great eye for homes, space, and their potential.  For the buyer, I will help you choose quality, envision possibility, illuminate details that might not otherwise get noticed.  For the seller, I will help you best prepare your home for market, assisting with staging and all the details that will make your home sing to qualified buyers.  My goal is to get you the highest price for your home in the shortest amount of time.

Green Real Estate

I am passionate about keeping our planet a thriving home for our children and grandchildren.  From my architectural and design background I have experience and knowledge of green building practices, and am currently pursuing accreditation in Green Real Estate and building practices to be best able to serve my clients.

My other interests:  travel, reading, music, world cultures, entertaining, nature, hiking, camping, swimming.

In today's real estate market, you should work with an agent you can rely on and a company you can trust.  Whether you are buying or selling your primary residence, a second home, or relocating to a new neighborhood, (city, state or country) I can help.  I really enjoy working with people and helping them attain their goals.  If you need help in commercial or residential real estate or just need a question answered, please call.

I invite you to explore my website which provides Q&A Services for the buyer or seller, as well as current Home Market Statistics, by neighborhood, for the greater Seattle area.
