The most emotional four-letter word in the English language is           H O M E. It’s where the heart dwells and memories happen. 

For 20 years, I’ve had the honor of guiding people through this monumental life event. Buyers are excited—they’re opening a new chapter. Sellers are relieved, they’re taking the next step forward.

Real estate is a human job. It demands a sense of humor, compassion, and professional skills to move people.

“That’s what I do:  I move people—H O M E.” 

My home search site is updated every 15 minutes from MLS, ensuring customers only view  current and accurate real estate listings. 

Whether you're looking to sell or buy a home, I’lm here to assist you using smart technology.  A successful real estate transaction is the result of good communication between Realtors and clients. If you’re tired of hearing, “That home isn’t available anymore,” I’ll set up an auto search so you get notification as soon as it’s online. If you're selling your home, I’ll provide you with a free market analysis, marketing plan, and evaluation of how to get the best buck for your home.  

I have extensive knowledge of the local market, can show you how big data matters te selling your home. Real estate transactions are complicated, and a big part of my job is ensuring that you get enough information to make the good decisions. I work with new construction, relocation, first time buyers to empty nesters who want to fly the coop.

Whether you are selling or buying a house, let’s have a cup of coffee and chat about your goals, and how we get there.  Call (612) 384-1360 to schedule a consultation, or learn more by visiting her online.
