Colleen became Realtor in January 2016 after 30 years in the financial services industries. The various years and roles that Colleen held throughout her career helped prepare her for the transition to a Realtor. Colleen spent 20 of these years in management responsible for quality, procedures, compliance, audit readiness, Executive/OCC complaints, Fraud/AML etc. The leadership positions she held provided the opportunity to build many skills that can be directly used to help clients in one of the most important transactions of their lives!

Her years of quality and customer-centric focus is the staple of her business and she is focused on earning a client and friend for life; not just collecting a commission check. During her career, Colleen was continually recognized for her achievements but is most proud of being recognized for her diversity and inclusion by being nominated and receiving the Arizona Inroads Supervisor of the Year award. 

Colleen has received her MRP certification and is currently pursuing her GRI certification.
