I earned a B.A. in Communications and Advertising from the University of Idaho in 1991 where I lettered in Track and Field and was a member of Alpha Phi Fraternity. I had a great experience at U of I where I received a great education, somehow managed to jump far enough to hold the school triple jump record for awhile, and formed many lifelong friendships. I began my career in newspapers beginning with The Journal of Business and Spokesman-Review in Spokane and finally, after a twelve year hiatus as a stay-at-home mom, I ended my newspaper career at the Coeur d’Alene Press. I leapt into the real estate world a few years ago and I feel absolutely grateful to have found a second career that I love so much.
These days, I live with my husband, two kids, cat and dog in Hayden, ID. While I love cruising around Hayden Lake on our boat, golfing, or eating at any number of great restaurants in the Spokane/Coeur d’Alene area, you will most often find me on the tennis courts. Additionally, both my husband, Mike, and I are still involved with the University of Idaho. Mike serves as President of our Vandal Booster Club, I try to be as involved as I can, and our daughter is attending school there.
I am passionate about what I do. So much so that sometimes it’s hard to turn it off at the end of the day—because I don’t want to! That passion drives me to go the extra mile for my clients. I take the time to listen to you and learn what you are looking for when buying or selling a house. I am patient with you and understand that buying and selling a home is a big decision. I work hard to make it easier on you.
Navigating today’s real estate market can be tough but if you work with me, you will have a full-time Realtor who is on-the-ball, educated about the market, readily available, and who works with you and for you to achieve your goals.
“Thanks for all the help and support in the recent sale of our home. Your grasp of the market was evident from our first meeting.
Choosing an agent to facilitate in the pricing and marketing and finally the sale of our home was a big decision. You built trust and confidence with us from the beginning and continued to guide us through the process up to closing.
We appreciate everything, including meeting with us any time or day we needed guidance, and even locating moving boxes from other clients and associates!
Please feel free to share our pleasure and satisfaction. I’m sure there are many other homeowners and buyers that would appreciate the expert advice, attention to detail and timely follow through you provided for us.” Jim and Sandy (sellers)
