Thank you for visiting today. If this is your first visit, take your time and look around. I have plenty of information and resources available to you. If you are a return visitor, thank you. I would love to hear from you and tell you how I can serve all your real estate needs.
I count my blessings every day to have lived in this great area for over 30 yrs! I am a Native Oregonian, born & raised in a small and wonderful farming/ranching community in Eastern Oregon (we even have a great wine named after my hometown, "Helix"!) I came back to Oregon in 1972 after living all over this great country (and Europe) to raise two wonderful sons in Bend as a single Mom--both well grown with sons of their own now! I have been fortunate to have had many different careers and stay in Central OR all these years--including my own Marketing and PR Company--but the best by far has been to work with clients in the purchase and sale of real estate, and "show off" this wonderful area I get to call home!
Living here has also allowed me to take advantage of all the great recreational opportunities--from skiing at Mt. Bachelor, snow shoeing, biking, hiking, fishing, kayaking, world-class rock climbing-- camping at one of our 100 lakes, enjoying a variety of outstanding eating establishments, some great beer, incredible events like the Sisters Rodeo and Sunriver Music Festival, outstanding sunrises and sunsets--all within close proximity! You might even get me to share some great getaways in other parts of Oregon! And to top it off, lots of sunshine and great people!
Beyond being a licensed Broker, this is my profession and I am passionate about what I do, and I do it full-time--not a hobby or part-time. I am a team of one--clients will always deal directly with me. My clients--and other Brokers--know they can count on me to be realistic, thorough, and available. I pride myself on keeping current on our market, trends, pricing, product, and rules and regulations. I have served on our Association's Board of Directors as the Local Director for Redmond as well as having served on the Government Affairs and Public Relations Committees.
I have been fortunate to represent some of Central Oregon's outstanding developers and builders, and have abundant resources for good, quality builders, sub-contractors and vendors, whether it is starting an entire sub-division, building a home from the ground up, remodeling, or a fixer to resell.
For Sellers, my marketing background brings a unique aspect to the process. One can have the best product, home, or service in the world, but it means nothing if people don't know about it! As a Coldwell Banker broker, I can offer outstanding exposure--the #1 most visited nationally branded website of all real estate franchises, a national and international network, and the brand that sells the most in Central Oregon!
Buyers will benefit by my knowledge of having lived in Central OR for a long time, knowing not only the area, but individual neighborhoods, developers, builders, changing values, "behind-the-scenes" info, and things to avoid, too. I am a tenacous negotiator for my clients, always looking out for my clients' best interests but also being realistic. I do ask that my buyers be pre-qualified, and I am happy to recommend a number of outstanding lenders to help them through the process.
