El Dorado, Sacramento and Placer County Real Estate


In 1984 after ten years as a legal
secretary and office manager, I was just burnt out with lawyers. My first
husband was a real estate broker and encouraged me to join him in the real
estate business. Within 4 months of the birth of my son I received my real
estate license and never looked back. I entered the business at a time when the
average interest rate was 14%. Although sales prices were low in those days, it
still was a challenge getting buyers qualified. Very early in my career I
learned the value of good research to find opportunities for my customers.

Within two years of obtaining my
real estate license I became a single mother of a two year old. Talk about
motivation! When I moved away from my husband, I had less than $100.00 in my
checking account. Nevertheless, I persevered and quickly became a top agent,
out producing many long time veterans of the real estate industry.

After working with Coldwell Banker
and Remax, I joined ERA Realty Center in 1991 now known as C 21 Select Real
Estate. After 21 years of dedicated service, as of January 27, 2012, I made a
life changing decision and I am now affiliated with Lyon Real Estate in Cameron

There is no doubt that my 10 years
as a legal secretary and office manager enabled me to develop a good eye for
details, organization and listening skills. I have been able to combine that
experience and my 28 years in real estate with genuine concern to provide a
professional and comfortable experience for my customers.

To me there is no more important
word in my vocabulary then ETHICS. You only have one chance with ethics. If you
lose sight of that, you will endanger your reputation as well as the rest of
the agents at your company. I have worked very hard to establish a quality
reputation and I guard it carefully.

What does the future hold? Well, I plan to
continue to service my past and future customers at the highest quality
attainable and I plan to be able to spend more quality time with my husband,
Sam, my stepson Ed, daughter in-law Marcie, grandson Bodie and my now 28 year
old son Shane, home safe and sound after eight years of serving honorably in
the U.S. Marine Corp
