Wow! Seventeen years in Real Estate flies by when you're having fun. It feels like 2004 was just yesterday!
My career in Real Estate began part-time as my husband and I happily raised our 2 children. When they grew and became more independent, I expanded my business to a full-time endeavor and what a BLAST I have had all along the way.
I'm 5th generation Californian and this is the 4th time I've found myself living in the Sacramento area. It has been years now and we LOVE it! After 17 moves ¿ yes, SEVENTEEN - I am very happy to say that we're now in our "forever" home and all of my personal experience with moving has been put to excellent use, because I truly know what it's like to buy and sell a home!
Having two children who were active with school and after-school activities has made me very familiar with Sacramento and the surrounding areas, and getting to revisit them all, as I help guide my clients to their new homes has been wonderful. In fact, just the other day I showed a home in Lincoln that was two doors down from the very first one my husband and I lived in more than 25 years ago!
It is wonderful to be able to live and work in the Sacramento area. My husband and I often joke about how Sacramento is a great place to live if you want to get out of town because you can hop in your car and drive two hours East for Lake Tahoe or two hours West for The Pacific Ocean! We feel like the world is our oyster ¿ and it's a world made even more accessible, with the Sacramento International Airport being just a short shuttle ride away.
I believe that Real Estate is the ultimate service industry and being of service to my Clients is something I take great pride in. Beginning with the very first call or meeting, my goal is to patiently guide my Buyers and Sellers with integrity and perseverance through what is most often the most important purchase they'll ever make. Even with its challenges, it is such an exciting time and I am always thrilled to be there every step the way for them, whether my clients are first-time home buyers or seasoned investors. For me, it's like putting together a huge jig saw puzzle, and - ask anyone who knows me - l LOVE puzzles!
I am passionate about Real Estate and I enjoy helping people buy and sell their homes. If you or someone you know is looking to buy or sell, I would be happy to help.
On a personal Note: My husband, John, and I married in 1989. He is the love of my life and we always have a good laugh and a great time. As the Director of Professional Services for Toshiba Business Solutions, he always has great insight into the business side of things and I couldn't imagine walking through this life without him. Our children are grown now, and are off exploring the world. A world we very much enjoy sharing with both of them.
