Licensed as a real estate agent in 1999, I started my career at a small independent real estate office in Kent Washington. I was very young and I jumped into real estate with enthusiasm and confidence only to find there was a lot more to selling real estate than I ever imagined.
I left real estate temporarily and went to work for a Corporate Housing Company as an account manager. Corporate Housing is basically furnished apartments and condominiums that serve as a temporary home for long term projects and relocating families. I loved this job because I was selling homes. It was fun to work in the downtown Seattle and Bellevue markets and I was very lucky to meet and work with some of the area's most talented executives and athletes. I was also fortunate to work for a company that had incredibly high standards in everything from the product we delivered to the way it was presented and I grew as a professional under the guidance of some very amazing business owners who mentored me and encouraged me to dream big and reach for goals others thought were unattainable.
Longing to return to real estate, I left the corporate housing company after four years and once again jumped into real estate. I thought this time I had it all figured out and with blind enthusiasm I once again struggled to make my real estate business work.
After two attempts of making my real estate career work, I was lucky enough to have some very successful real estate agents in my office take me under their wing and show me the ropes. I wholeheartedly thank among others, Mark Dewitt, Thatch Nguyen, Win Van Pelt and the Mike Ferry Organization for their guidance in helping me achieve my real estate dreams. With the help from others, I have enjoyed a successful real estate business since 2005. I realize now that it is what we don't know and are willing to learn that make us great and I personally feel it is my obligation to help others achieve where they are willing to learn.

My passion is working with everyday people to help them buy and sell real estate. I love helping individuals and families though the process of transitioning homes because there is so much more involved than what appears to be.
People buy and sell real estate as a celebration of success in the examples of a job promotion or new family member, and they also buy and sell real estate because of sometimes tragic events such as a death or a divorce. To help them with the process of making a decision to move forward in both rewarding and difficult times while navigating through piles of paperwork is a very rewarding career for me. If I can make the process easier for them, while my clients focus on what is important to them, than the service I provide is of infinite value and in that, I experience a sense of propose that I cannot imagine any other career bringing to me.
My strength is in helping individuals and families transition homes when they have other things in their lives to pay attention to. If you feel this is the kind of help you need, please give me a call, send me an email or visit me at my office. I'd be delighted to be of service.
