My passion in life is to take good care of people. It inspired me to get a degree in nursing and it’s what, from personal experiences, pushed me to make a career change to real estate. I take pride in helping people navigate new situations. Whether it is an important health care need or a complex financial decision, my goal is to ensure people have the information and support they need to make smart choices.
My husband, Shayne, works for Nike, and while we have always considered Portland to be our permanent home, his job allowed our family the opportunity to live in various countries. With our three children in tow, we moved from Florida to Oregon, South Korea, Taiwan, China, Vietnam, and back to Oregon again. We always appreciated the gift of experiencing and embracing different cultures while understanding the importance of providing our family a home that ensured our children were in a safe neighborhood, attended good schools and where neighbors became friends. I pull from those experiences of relocating, and apply my commitment to helping others, when guiding you through the home buying process.
With each move, my interest in real estate has grown. I have bought and sold many properties over the past 30 years, including multiple rental properties in Portland and Bend. Now that we are permanently settled in Portland, the time has come for me to make the move from real estate client to real estate broker. As a client I always appreciated a broker who demonstrated dedication to our family and helped navigate the challenges and details in finding the perfect home. Honesty and integrity are qualities I value and strive to exemplify. My goal is to ensure your priorities are at the forefront of any home search, that all of your questions are answered thoroughly and the paperwork and closing are as clear and simple, as possible.
Whether you are looking to buy your first home, moving to a new city, upgrading to meet the needs of your growing family, downsizing to simplify your life, or investing in real estate, I look forward to being your advocate and supporting your interests as I guide you through the real estate process.
