I have been a Realtor since 2001 and entered the market just to take care of my personal real estate but I ended up falling in love with the entire process. I decided to make my goal of making it a great experience for others. Since then, my team and I have helped relocate over 20,000 families so far in my career, many of whom have become like family to me. I have since taken every possible opportunity to further educate myself in the business. I am a CRS (Certified Residential Specialist), a designation only obtained by 6% of licensees. I am an Accredited Buyers Agent (ABR) which gave me additional expertise to assist buyers. I am an Associate Broker with my GRI designation (Graduate Residential Institute graduate). I have taken green courses, smart home courses, certified luxury home marketing classes, staging classes, real estate financing classes and during the 2008 financial crisis, I took shortsale and foreclosure courses and maintained those credentials as well. I attend NAR annual conference and have used my down time in 2020 to take additional coursework.
I graduated from Michigan State University in 1988 with Bachelor of Arts Degree in English with minors in Spanish, Psychology, Sociology and Economics (we had minors back then and I wasn't sure what I wanted my major to be!)
I speak Spanish and Italian. I love people and when I am not working I enjoy gardening, long walks, reading, collegiate sports, museums, theatre, live music, cooking for others and traveling.
