Hello, and thanks for stopping by! I appreciate you taking time to learn a little bit about me and how I came into the real estate profession. It all started way back, when I was a child. My father worked in the semi-conductor/microchip industry, which kept us relocating every couple of years due to job transfers. From kindergarten through high school I moved over 9 times! My mother did a great job maintaining a sense of normalcy in spite of being uprooted frequently. In addition to raising 3 children, she worked as an office manager in the dental field, a field that would end up serving me well for 28 years. After high school, I studied nutrition and dietetics at ASU and then went on to Phoenix College to study dental hygiene, essentially following in my mother's footsteps.
The frequent moves throughout my childhood set the stage for a similar, migratory adulthood. I would begin to feel restless after living in the same home longer than 2-3 years. I started dabbling in real estate, first looking up "for-sale" and "open-house" notices in the newspaper. Then as times changed, my searches were done via the internet. Perusing real estate websites became one of my favorite pastimes. I enjoyed the hunt and the negotiations involved in getting a great property at a great price. I especially loved finding the homes that were overlooked or those that had lingered on the market for an extended period of time, sometimes just needing a little TLC. My friends and family have always told me that I have a knack for real estate, and encouraged me to get my license, so I decided to pursue my passion and turn my real estate hobby into a career.
Not only do I bring to my real estate career my own personal experiences of buying and selling properties, I also bring the skills that I have honed over 3 decades in dental hygiene: attention to detail, problem solving, organization, communication, flexibility, patience, and understanding, among others. One skill in particular, infection control, is proving to be very helpful in our current pandemic-climate. My ultimate desire is to help you attain your real estate goals in a smooth, fun and personalized fashion. When you work with me, you also work with 114 years of the Coldwell Banker name behind me. I am a current member of The National Association of REALTORS, The Arizona Association of REALTORS, and The Scottsdale Area Association of REALTORS.
But that's enough about me, now it's your turn! Let's connect so you can tell me all about yourself and how I might help you with your real estate goals and dreams. Whether it be buying, selling, investing or renting, I will be there for you.
