Love Where You Live!

Thank you so much for visiting my website! I am a native Oregonian with a love of architecture and the Pacific Northwest. I have been a licensed Principal Broker for over 40 years and still find my career and the people I meet fascinating. I list and sell all types of property from one bedroom condos to land, estates, vineyards, new construction and resale homes. Please allow me to guide you through your next real estate transaction.

Purchasing/selling is an exciting time. You need an experienced agent with repeat and referral business from previously satisfied customers. My motto is "Love Where You Live." Let's make sure we let that dream come true for you too!

Company Story " More than an Agent"

She thought it was a prank caller. Because every time the WIndermere agent answered, all she could hear was a barely audible whisper on the other end of the line. The phone rang again. This time it was the voice of a much younger woman calling to explain that her eighty-something great aunt had tried calling several times but couldn't get through. She was calling about one of the agents listings. Apparently, the aunt had left a towel too close to the stove causing a fire that burned her house right down to the ground. At one point she rean back into the house to retrieve her purse and suffered third-degree burns. She was still in recovery when the insurance settlement funded, but the fiecely independent octogenarian wanted to pay cash for the agent's listing which was just a few doors down from her best friend. Since the aunt could no longer drive, the agent picked her up, showed her the house, and they wrote an offer that was ultimately accepted.

This newly purchased home was a few doors down from the aunt's best friend so it was all pretty great. During the sale the agent picked her client up from the hotel she was staying at, took her to the store several times, the bank and to pick up medications. This was more than a client, she became a friend.

Epilogue: Seven years passed, the Windermere agent received another phone call from the niece. Her aunt had kpassed away. She just wanted to call and thank her for being more than an agent to her aunt. And for helping her buy the house. She described just how much her aunt enjoyed her garden and walking to her friend's house every day for coffee. In that moment the agent thought to herself, "this career is so not about the money."

The great aunt was my client many years ago. I will never forget her.
