Return to Raleigh Hills
After graduating from the University of Oregon, I worked in the legal field in Eugene and subsequently in San Francisco where I moved with my husband just after we were married in 1983. Several years after our first son was born, we decided to return to Oregon to raise our family in what we consider to be the most livable city on the West Coast. Choosing to become a Realtor made sense for me because of my organizational and communication skills and, more importantly, it allows me to work with people from all walks of life.
Having helped clients purchase and sell properties in virtually every sector of the Portland Metro Area, I consider my true area of specialty is not geographic, but rather in serving my clients` needs by concentrating on their particular goals and working diligently until they are met.
With over thirteen years of experience working as a Realtor, I can honestly say I enjoy my work more today than I did when I began. I believe it is imperative to go beyond client expectations, whether in marketing their current home or finding their next one, keeping them informed every step of the way. I pride myself on speaking honestly and openly, evaluating client needs, addressing questions and concerns as well as finding and negotiating workable solutions to any issues that may arise. Buying and selling properties can be challenging and stressful, so I strive to keep a sense of humor and to help my clients do the same to smooth the process.
