I started selling real estate in Anchorage, Alaska and, over the years, have worked with a couple of real estate franchises and as an independent. I've come to understand that what YOU want, and the way I insist on dealing with people, revolve around a combination of lots of personalized attention, a full range of services, and the highest professional standards. I recently joined Coldwell Banker Danforth because I've known them for years and felt that their office best provided that kind of welcoming, professional environment.
Coldwell Banker Danforth Realty is one of the top-producing real estate offices in the Pacific Northwest, with highly experience realtors and staff that take the time to get to know you, your family, your specific requirements and desires. I think I'm proudest of the fact that a lot of my closest friends are former clients, and a lot of my clients are referrals. But we also have the tremendous resources of the national franchise behind us.
I live here with my husband Ron, a pilot (a former Hurricane Hunter and a Uniformed Services retiree), and our daughter, Taylor. I know what your concerns are because I share them. I know because Taylor has participated in a lot of the activities (dance, sports, 4H, summer camp, etc.) you'll want to know about for your kids. I know because we go to church, we support community theatre; I take my pets to the vet and shop in the local stores. I'm a foster mom. I can recommend a good electrician or help you find that great little restaurant. Whidbey Island is a wonderful place to raise a family. Let me tell you about it.
I have a B.S. from FIU in Miami, and an M.Div. (cum laude) from Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington D.C. I interned as an E.R. chaplain at Tampa General Hospital, so I've dealt with major traumas; calming and reassuring nervous clients is just part of the job for me.
My other passion, besides real estate, is my animals. I have two Paso Fino horses and an Oldenburg that I ride in competitions (Note from husband: Ask about her blue ribbons at your own risk! ); That's me below riding in the Calgary Stampede parade.)
Above all, I'm an experienced real estate professional, with a thorough understanding of 1031 exchanges, covenants and deed restrictions, zoning, contracts, contingencies, financing, etc., etc. I know the Whidbey Island real estate market from Clinton to Langley to Freeland to Greenbank to Coupeville to Oak Harbor, and everything in between. And anything I don't know off the top of my head, I know exactly where to go for the right answer. Thinking about relocating? Retiring? Buying income property or land for development? Horse property or a vacation home? Let me be your professional realtor, your personal friend, and your enthusiastic guide to our little slice of paradise up here in the Pacific Northwest.
