I grew up listening to my parents. I think that's a good place to start in life. They were both successful Realtors. Dad was a Broker/Owner and Mom worked for him as an Agent. You can imagine how exciting the dinner conversation was every night!
When I was old enough to drive Dad was President of the Board and was pushing to get the first MLS up and running in the Kansas City area. My first job was driving a route to all the different real estate company offices all over Johnson County, Ks. to deliver the daily listing packs for the agents to add to their new fangled MLS books. It was a huge change at the time. Our industry has come a long way since those days! :) Thank goodness!
After college at Kansas State University and some post grad floating through life, I settled into 25 years of working for large Banks (Citi, Wells and BofA) focusing on Real Estate Lending and Priority Client management. Eventually I ended up in El Dorado Hills in 2001 when I transferred to Sacramento with BofA. We bought a new homein El Dorado Hills and I fell in love with the beauty of the area. I made the decision to leave banking and move to the same end of the business that I grew up around...Residential Sales. All those nights at the dinner table may have had some value after all! Life has a funny way of coming full circle.
Since 2001 I've been honored to be in the Placer County Assoc of Realtors Masters Club and the El Dorado County Assoc of Realtors Top Achievers group. These awards are based on experiance related to production numbers. An award that I'm even more proud of is the FIVE STAR Agent award. This is awarded by an independent company that conducts surveys of Buyers and Sellers after their transactions. Awards are based completely on Customer Satisfaction ratings. Only the top 5% of agents in a market earn this Award. Thanks go out to my many past clients for these positive reviews that have lead to me being a Multi-year FIVE STAR Award winner! I hope our paths cross in the near future, here's to your own Real Estate success story! I hope you will choose to make me a part of it!! :)
