Windermere Real Estate South is a FULL service Real Estate company to both its agents and clients. More comprehensive support to me as an agent translates into support and opportunity for my clients. The greatest attraction for me however, is a large industry leading company with a small business, family feeling. Windermere takes its standard of service to its clients very seriously. As members of the National Association of REALTORS, we agree to abide by a strict code of ethics that is based in professionalism and consumer protection. To further reinforce our commitment to our clients, Windermere has built upon the REALTOR Code of Ethics by establishing what is called the Windermere Standards of Practice. When working with me, you're truly getting the best the industry has to offer when it comes to standards, ethics and trustworthiness.
Whether it’s supporting a first time home buyer, assisting a buyer or seller who have bought and sold multiple times, or helping to fulfill ownership goals of a recreational or investment property, I’m here to assist you. My promise to you is while helping you turn your real estate dreams into reality, I’ll never sway from the values I hold dear. I’ll work with you and for you, with the highest level of honesty and integrity. I will maintain a work ethic on your behalf that is trustworthy, committed and always hard working. Whatever your dream, I’m going to help you achieve it! I honored to have been voted "Best in Client Satisfaction" by Seattle Magazine in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016.
Getting started couldn’t be easier. Simply pick up the phone and call me, or if you prefer, you can email or text me. Our relationship starts and grows with communication. Making my clients feel heard and understood, keeping them updated and informed throughout the entire process is not only important but my top priority.

I have lived my whole life in the Puget Sound region, the last 33 years in the Auburn/Federal Way area. I have been married to my husband Bob for 36 years & we have two adult children and one adorable granddaughter. I am a steadfast Seahawk fan and I enjoy reading, camping, gardening, home improvement projects & backyard barbecue's with family and friends. We have been a part of Christ Church in Federal Way since 1997.
I have been representing Buyers and Sellers in Western Washington's South King and Pierce counties since 1987. I am committed to excellence and providing results beyond, and out of the ordinary. I am a graduate of Oregon State University with a major in Hospital Administration and a minor in Gerontology. I have worked as an Administrator in Long Term Care Facilities, hospital clinics, and project manager for Kaiser.

Windermere provides the tools and resources to make the process for either a Buyer or Seller a rewarding one. You have at your fingertips a state of the art, user friendly website and a network of professional staff and Realtors across the country. It doesn't matter where you are going, I can help you in the journey.
My goal is to help you get where you want to go on time. Make it easier, make it faster, and be a source of real estate knowledge. I bring to my customers a high level of convenience and accountability in the real estate transaction with our partners at CW Title.
Providing the absolute highest quality of professionalism and integrity in the real estate industry for the purpose of creating wealth, thereby empowering friends and family to pursue lifelong goals and passions.
I give back with each transaction to the Windermere Foundation which benefits local housing charities. I have been married to Jack for 40 years and have two wonderful grown children. I am energized by being outdoors, I run daily, and hike and ski with girlfriends whenever I can. I mentor two children and they give me back more than I give.
Call me and let me educate you about the real estate market, and let's see if we can't begin a journey of change together.

As a third generation realtor I take great pride in helping both buyers and sellers. My family is truly important to me. We buy real estate too. We have completed a number of small land development projects over the years and built a team of trusted vendors. "I know the market better than a normal sales agent because I live it!"
It's always exciting to buy real estate! Buyers will have a lot of fun, because I believe buying a home is one of the most exciting things a person will ever buy! I'll make sure you work with the "BEST" lender, title/escrow, and inspector, so you can relax and enjoy the process. I don't believe in high pressure sales. I'm in the real estate business to build lifetime clients.
One of my favorite parts of this business is putting up a new Windermere sign and being proud of the property I'm representing. I multi-task well and make sure that sellers are always aware of how their home is being marketed. I have an excellent reputation in the real estate community and known for my skill in cooperating with other agents to see an offer come together. Honest, trustworthy, and very knowledgeable about current market trends in South King and Pierce counties.
My mission is simple. I treat people the way I'd would like to be treated. When I take on the job of helping a Buyer or Seller I want to provide them with the best quality service and a fun time too. That means, up to date market info, the best of marketing, a strategic plan and a clean sale. I work with my clients as team to make their dreams become reality.
