Born in Pasadena,California in 1960 and grew up in a 1912 Craftsman home complete with traditional front porch, leaded glass built in china huthes, open redwood beamed ceilings and everything else that makes these homes so spectacular. In 1991 I purchased a 1927 English Tudor cottage complete with glass door knobs,hardwood floors and curved archways. I know the difference between "fully restored" craftsman's and "fully remodeled" craftsman homes here in Bellingham and the potential that homes have here to be restored. I have many contacts still in southern california who "restore" these homes and bring them back to life. I graduated from St. Francis H.S. in 1978, attended Pasadena City College for 2 years and then UCLA sometime thereafter. I've always been hardworking so at the age of 20, while attending PCC and working at a grocery store, I started my own landscaping business. After 5 years of grwoing the business,finishing school and moving on from the grocery store, I sold my business and moved to Kodiak,Alaska to be with my sisters. While there, I commercial fished halibut, black cod and salmon until 1986. For the next 13 years I worked in the pet supply business as the operations manager and helped grow a start up company to 20 million dollars annually. What sets me apart from other realtors is my ability to do many things at once, communicate respectfully with others and negotiate successfully for my friends,family and clients.
