I am a Wayne County native, born and raised. Growing up, in a rural town, I yearned for some true adventure from an early age. I wanted to explore and discover new places, and learn about culture and people. I wanted to get on a plane!
By the time I was 14, myself and a friend brainstormed with a high-school substitute teacher after school. She is a great friend to this day and she inspired me with her amazing stories of adventures around the world. We decided we needed to just make one happen, despite not having money for airfare, etc!
We quickly grew to a group of about 8 energetic students and 2 adults, and we held fundraisers for months and months. We were followed by our local paper several times, and our goals of volunteering abroad were quickly supported by many in our small town through car washes, bake sales, hot dog and cotton candy sales, etc. As our name implied, we were truly, "Volunteers on a Mission!"
That two weeks were spent volunteering for humble, wonderful people in hurricane torn areas of Puerto Rico, (now again in worse shape after 2017), we helped salvage and reconstruct community gathering places, and had an unforgettable time of our lives...bonding over splinters, friendly paint wars, aches and pains and some serious sun burns :-). From that experience on, I learned an important lesson of following and working toward my dreams, no matter how many obstacles stand in the way.
Since that time, and now at my ripe-old middle age, I am proud of where I am in life both personally and professionally. I am lucky to have two beautiful kids, a thoughtful husband, and a career that allows me to utilize all of my varied interests. I continue to work toward my professional goals daily, which, above all, is to deliver top-notch service, and a thorough, strategic and comprehensive plan for each of my Real Estate clients.
I am also a proponent of all sorts of DIY, and have renovated many parts of our 3 various homes. I can now say there are few projects or plans that scare me...this can be particularly helpful if you are a First Time Homebuyer and unsure of how to make outdated look modern on a budget, or if you want help with design and staging ideas.
If you decide to hire me (FYI, this is free for Buyers), you will quickly notice that I work just as hard on behalf of my clients (to find, or sell, and negotiate the best deals, and maintain the smoothest process possible) as I would in buying or selling a house for myself!
I am a licensed REALTOR® and a certified Pricing Strategy Advisor. I specialize in representing my clients in the purchase and sale of single-family residences and income property within Monroe, Wayne, Livingston, and Ontario counties, primarily. With my background in travel, friendships and business relationships in other states of our country and in Europe, Anthropology, Archeology, Sociology, and education, I view my role in Real Estate with an above average focus on the relationships that make buying and selling a truly satisfying experience.
