The Focus is on You
My primary focus is on my clients and the city where we live, work and play. My goal is to be a source of information that goes beyond buying and selling homes and to provide exceptional service and marketing, and to share my knowledge about the city I'm grateful to call home.
Area of Specialty
Having helped clients purchase and sell properties in virtually every sector of the Portland Metro Area, I consider my true area of specialty is not geographic, but rather in serving my clients` needs by concentrating on their particular goals and working diligently until they are met.
Commitment to Integrity & Service
With over sixteen years of experience working as a Realtor, I can honestly say I enjoy my work more today than I did when I began. I believe it is imperative to go beyond client expectations, whether in marketing their current home or finding their next one, keeping them informed every step of the way. I pride myself on speaking honestly and openly, evaluating client needs, addressing questions and concerns as well as finding and negotiating workable solutions to any issues that may arise. Buying and selling properties can be challenging and stressful, so I strive to keep a sense of humor and to help my clients do the same to smooth the process.
Personal + Professional Accomplishments & Affiliations
After graduating from the University of Oregon, I worked in the legal field in Eugene and subsequently in San Francisco where I moved with my husband just after we were married in 1983. Several years after our first son was born, we decided to return to Oregon to raise our family in what we consider to be the most livable city on the West Coast. Our two sons went through the Lincoln School District and moved on to the University of Oregon...so we are officially an All-Duck family, although we have many friends on the other side of the field! My degrees & designations include a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Oregon * CRS Designation (Certified Residentail Specialist) * Certified Negotiation Expert Designation * GRI Designation (Graduate of Realtor Institute) * Member of the National, Oregon and Portland Associations of Realtors * Member of the Windermere/CCRGI Standards of Technology Committee
