Here are some things you might like to know about me:
In November of 2000 I joined started my real estate career after a 13-year position as Director of Operations with a local consulting and training company. (Hair-designer, Travel Consultant, and Operations Manager for a training and consulting company, are former careers).
At age 19 I purchased a home and by 22 acquired land for investment, four years later I borrowed equity from my home and purchased a duplex downtown San Diego. A few years later I exchanged up to a 4-plex and now after a series of 1031 exchange transactions I have moved my tax deferred assets into individual residential rental properties in the North County San Diego area. As an experienced investor I am convinced that residential properties for retirement income and a balanced portfolio are perfect for the individual investor.
With practical business experience and people skills, my former occupations have been excellent preparation for transitioning into my Real Estate Career. In my first year of Real Estate I received the "Rookie of the Year" award with Top Number Transactions. The second year I became a member of the Presidents Circle with 7 Million in sales and for the next 3 of 4 years I earned Chairman's Circle which ranks me in the top 3% of Real Estate network of agents nationwide. 2007 was a down trending year, to say the least, but my sales reached 8 million putting me back in the "Presidents Circle". The "Presidents Circle" represents the top 5% of the Real Estate network of agents nationwide. In 2009 I received an Honor Society award. This last year, 2013, I achieved the companies # 1 agent award for individual sales.
In June 2011, I joined Real Living Lifestyles, a sister company of Brookfield Corporation.
I live in Pauma Valley with my husband who is retired from Northrop Corporation and is now an avocado and citrus farmer. We live in the Pauma Valley Country Club.
