My journey to becoming a Realtor is a little
unconventional. I was born in Seattle
while my father was still in the U.S. Navy and my mother was a hairstylist. When he went to work at the Bremerton
Shipyard, I attended Bremerton High School.
My next stop was at Central WA University in Ellensburg graduating in accounting. After experiencing that new career for 2
years, selling a home in a week and having to move again, I decided to return
to Central WA University and start a new career path in teaching high school. While on a high school field trip, someone
told me I should be a realtor which started the idea of it in my mind. Between teaching and moving to a new location
I was once again involved in selling a home.
During the next 8 years I substitute taught Jr. and Sr. high school in
the Redmond WA area along with volunteering in a community school in several
different capacities. Unexpectedly, one
of my two children became very ill and so I stayed home to help him heal for a
while. After my two sons moved out on
their own, I moved to Eastern WA for a family career change. All these changes in location increased my
enjoyment of real estate. It became a passion
which turned into a new career. It
struck me as a great way to integrate my love for community service and real
estate which led me to becoming a realtor.
My two sons now reside near Seattle. My husband and I, enjoy hiking, camping,
skiing, fishing, golfing, playing board games, reading, and being together with
our sons whenever possible. One of our
favorite family meeting places is at a campground in Central WA.
Selling or buying a home can be one of the most
stressful and exciting times in life. My
goal, each and every time, is to make this a calm, smooth, happy and efficient
process which is why I joined Coldwell Banker Tomlinson. Their excellent training and support of their
brokers allows me to be my client¿s best support system. I look forward to meeting you and offering you
my support, honesty, efficiency, organization, and negotiating skills in
supporting your real estate journey in the greater Spokane area.
