I went to local schools and have a Bachelors of Science in Psychology from Salem’s own Willamette University. Real Estate has been my passion passion long before it became my career career. My husband Patrick and I have bought and sold Real Estate in the area for over 25 years. I also own a successful home Staging company and have a deep understanding of what it takes to “market-ready“ your home for today’s current housing market. This combined with my multi-media marketing techniques and commitment to my clients have made me one of the top Real Estate Brokers in the Willamette Valley.
I stay active in the community and have been a volunteer middle school basketball coach for over 8 years as well as serving on the Salem-Keizer Youth Basketball board and the West Salem Athletic Booster board.
When I am not working with buyers and sellers to find their next dream home you can find me camping and exploring Oregon with my husband and three children.


I excel in:

• Residential resale/New Construction

• Negotiation Strategies

My Mission: I am committed to excellence and to providing you with professional, result-driven service with an emphasis client satisfaction. That means I work tirelessly to make your home buying or selling process as efficient, stress-free and lucrative for you as possible.

 

Representation

I take pride in offering high-caliber full-service residential real estate expertise. My clients are my top priority, and I focus on delivering the best possible results for them.

 

Expertise

The real estate market is hyperlocal, seasonal and temperamental—in other words, it can change on a dime. Technology has made information more accessible to everyone, but it can be difficult to keep up with recent events that affect home values. The benefits of working with a licensed real estate professional go far beyond what a mobile app, online video, or website can do.

I provide my clients with information on market seasonality and information relevant to what is happening in their specific neighborhood. This customized analysis includes recent comparable sales that factor into an offer and acceptance strategy.

 

Negotiations

Successful negotiations help move a conversation forward and transform the process into an agreement that’s a win for all parties. Negotiation is not only a skill, but a mindset. I keep my clients’ best interests top of mind as I negotiate on their behalf. 

 

Transactional Excellence

I am dedicated to transactional excellence for every listing and sale. What this means for you is that I oversee every detail of the real estate transaction. The transaction is far from over once an offer has been accepted. I monitor inspections, appraisals, title, escrow and loan processes. Communication and collaboration with all the partners and parties involved with the transaction ensures a smooth and timely closing. I am committed to my clients before, during and after a sale.
