Providing Exceptional Service From The Heart
Hello! If we haven’t met yet, I hope we do so soon, because some of my personal joys are the lasting friendships that are formed while working together and the reward of seeing happy clients.
I love the journey of getting to know others and learning how I can best serve them with their real estate goals and their design dreams.
I look forward to the opportunity of being on that journey with you.
I’m blessed to call the beautiful Pacific Northwest home. Growing up in a small town near the Oregon coast and then living in several different cities & suburbs in the greater Portland area for the past 30 years gives me a better understanding of the geographical area as well as the real estate market when helping my buyers and sellers.
When I’m not at the office or out working with clients, you can find me holding down the fort at home with my two darling daughters, my dashing hubby & our long-haired doxie.
About my background & business
The path to my real estate profession was paved with many wonderful opportunities that prepared me well for not only being a successful Realtor at Soldera Properties, Inc. but also provided the perfect foundation to pursue a career in the world of design as well.
I spent 15 years in Human Resources at a major law firm which helped foster a heart for people and allowed me to gain and grow a strong set of administrative skills that served me well when I left to open my own home décor store in 2008.
Following those years of retail merchandising and customer service, I also worked for several years as a design consultant for one of the largest interior surface companies in the area, helping clients with remodel and new construction projects.
Shortly afterward, I decided to get my real estate license and I’ve been loving it, but I also realized that I could serve my clients even better if I were able to bring my experience and love of design alongside my real estate business to form a full-service offering. It was an easy decision since these industries naturally complement each other and share a passion for people and the spaces they occupy.
My business has also provided an ideal platform for me to continue to grow personally and professionally. As a result, I always strive to show respect to my colleagues and work collaboratively with others, to provide honest and consistent communication, to invest in my education, to exercise creative problem solving and implement strong project management skills. I am continually looking for cost-effective solutions to stay on budget and my ultimate desire is to produce results that are pleasing to my clients.
I’m known for my solid work ethic, caring deeply, being patient to get the results that are best for my clients and for throwing a great party since I love to spoil my peeps!
