hiking shot for about meAs a 4th generation Arizonan,   I love all things Arizona, and have been making Phoenix, and the Ahwatukee Foothills, my home since 1998.  Before entering real estate in January 2003, I enjoyed a long career in various purchasing, supply chain management, and production control positions.    Many of the skills I developed over the years I pull out of my tool box and utilize in your behalf.  Things like problem solving, project/transaction management, negotiation.   I hold both a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and a Masters degree in Business Administration… very applicable to providing top notch real estate service.  Along the way, I’ve obtained  my AZ broker license, GRI, CLHMS, ABR, among other minor, certifications to enhance my real estate skills.

In my spare time...

I read, watch movies, practice yoga, sew, construct quilts, and I love to hike the mountains of Phoenix and the trails of South Mountain Park.  My husband Dave and I have explored most of the trails in our gorgeously huge South Mountain back yard.  David and I have raised 3 children, and we enjoy 5 (going on 6 ) beautiful and fun grandchildren.


About GRI, CLHMS and ABR certifications:


A Graduate Realtor Institute designation is the real estate industry hallmark. Only Realtors who successfully complete more than 90 hours of comprehensive training can be called GRI.  These agents are considered the elite of the business.  It is the number 1 real estate designation in the industry.

How does an Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®) differ from other buyer’s representatives?

An ABR® is a buyer’s representative who has completed advanced training and who has proven experience in serving the special needs of buyer-clients. In addition to knowing the dynamics of their local market, an ABR®-designated buyer’s rep can help you make informed decisions throughout the entire home buying process.
