Professional Experience –
My background includes over 15 years of real estate experience and more than 10 years appraisal experience. During this time, I have owned an appraisal business with my husband, which has allowed me to work closely with banks and underwriters, so I fully understand our ever changing market. My knowledge makes me one of the few agents that can interpret our current market conditions from both the lenders and buyers point of view. I regularly assist other agents on pricing their listings, and have held training seminars for both real estate agents and loan officers. I am proud to be a Realtor, and continue to support the high ethical standards of this organization. I am a trained Ninja, which focuses on putting the customer first and believes that we are put here to serve others. Because I focus on serving, rather than selling, I can honestly say I have the greatest career in the world!
If you are considering selling your home, then you know time is of the essence. The most important thing right now is properly pricing your house. My background will help you determine the right price for the highest return on your investment. If your sale will require lender approval, our Lake Stevens office is equipped with a fully staffed short sale department to assist us through each step in this procedure.
When buying a home, my expertise will guide you through the process, from finding the perfect home, to navigating through the contracts, negotiations, and inspections, and finally to a smooth closing. I believe communication is the key to a successful relationship. I will take the time to get to know your family and your housing needs and make sure you fully understand each step of the real estate process. My goal is to make your home buying or selling experience to be beyond your expectations.
On a personal note –
My husband, Jeff, and I have lived in Snohomish county most of our lives. We’ve been married over 20 years, have three great kids, and enjoy camping, motorcycle riding, and spending time with our family and friends. We have purchased both resale and new construction homes. Jeff worked as a home inspector for almost five years and we have used our combined experience in all our own real estate adventures. We have built home additions, dealt with the county on development issues, as well as complete “studs out” remodels, and have personally experienced many typical homeowner woes. We currently live in the Lake Stevens/Marysville area and have a rental house in Everett.
