More About Me
BUYERSImagine living and working in a place you love! Every day I am reminded how fortunate I am to live and work on Whidbey Island. Yes, I work as a realtor, but as they say "if you do what you love, you will never work a day in your life". My passion is giving potential buyers a peek into our "Island lifestyle". From the many off-leash dog parks, bird watching, beaches and recreational areas to the abundant biking and walking trails. The island also features flourishing farmers markets and many fantastic dining venues. Whidbey's unbelievable weather and awe-inspiring nature that surrounds us. My husband and I researched many different locales before choosing Whidbey. It is this extensive research, combined with industry know-how, that I share with my clients. I would love the opportunity to represent you and assist in your decision making process.
SELLERSWhen selling your home, first impressions are critical! Every moment is an opportunity to showcase this in the best possible way. Making your home as appealing as possible, to as many buyers as possible, is essential to getting you the highest dollar for your home. I not only work with residential properties, but enjoy working with unique and specialized properties, like those offering acreage and horse facilities. I own a horse myself and understand what is needed to keep them properly maintained, happy and healthy. When you choose to work with me, you will also have the resources of the entire Windermere team.
MAKING A DIFFERENCEI strongly believe in being hands-on and supporting my community first and foremost. As a member of the Coupeville Garden Club, we are involved in many projects, including the planting and caring for the gorgeous flowers that brighten our town. Being a member of the Coupeville Chamber of Commerce, I have many opportunities to impact others in a positive way through my volunteer work. In the fall, I am very active with the "Haunting of Coupeville" and the Scarecrow contests as well as other events throughout the year that attract attention to our special community. My previous volunteer work in California included working diligently with an overpopulated animal shelter. I used my marketing and photography skills to make our dogs stand out amongst thousands, on multiple web sites, significantly increasing the number of animals we were able to save. That experience changed my life and I continue to educate people about unwanted pets and love to share my four adopted special "fur babies" with everyone I meet.
MARKETINGIn today's world of high tech, knowing how to best utilize marketing for sellers is key. Staging, high quality photos and top notch presentations are vital to getting the best first impression possible. Proper valuation is also essential. Working with appraisers, inspectors and a vast network of real estate professionals has given me a deep knowledge in this arena, but it is my creative marketing and knowing what sells that sets me apart. Striving to go above and beyond for my clients with integrity and passion is my goal. No matter how big or small, I would be honored to help make your dreams a reality!
