After fulfilling my teenage dream to move from Pittsburgh to Arizona, I graduated from both Arizona State University and the Arizona School of Real Estate and Business. Spending 10 years in Title Insurance, prior to being a licensed agent, allowed me to master the closing process.
Coordinating requirements from buyers, sellers and lenders, I noticed a consistent thread. Communication and consideration were often lacking or totally missing. Agents do transactions on a regular basis, but many people only buy one or two houses in their lifetime. I do not forget that what is routine to me is not routine to my clients.
This “a-ha moment” made me the agent I am today. I don’t sell houses, I build relationships. Operating under the belief that if it is important to you, is important to me is one of the reasons that people say they refer me to their friends and family. As an 8-year-old child, I was fascinated watching my dad and uncles build our family home. I remember walking through the framed house and thinking this sure doesn’t look like a bedroom. Fast forward to 2016, there I was gutting my own house, redesigning the layout and explaining my vision to the framers. The love of houses and passion for real estate was passed from my grandfather to my father to me. Buying, selling, investing, remodeling, I have done it all and can’t imagine doing anything else.
Living in Arizona is such a blessing. One of my favorite things to do is put the dogs in the car and visit small towns like Bisbee and Tombstone. My Sundays are spent at Valley Presbyterian Church community where I also spend time as a semi-professional volunteer. I am invested in this community and I will invest my time in you.
