Thank you for considering me to assist with your real estate needs. I am native, born and raised in Arizona, and grew up in Tempe. I attended Corona del Sol High School (Go Aztecs!), and graduated from ASU (Go Devils!) with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Marketing. I purchased my first home in 2005 and the experience peaked my interest and passion still going strong today. I obtained my real estate license in October 2005 and I have been working with buyers and sellers across the valley ever since.
I help first-time home buyers, investors and everyone in between. I am experienced in selling traditional, short sale as well as lender owned/REO/foreclosure properties. I pride myself in being detail-oriented, thorough, thoughtful, patient, prompt, and skilled at value analysis. I have experience selling 3 personal properties as well as 7 investments (flips). I never forget what it’s like to put your property up for sale…....it can be very mind-consuming. I also will never forget when I was signing the documents for my first home purchase, and the title rep said “smile”…….I was so nervous.
My experience flipping homes and working with buyers proves extremely valuable when consulting sellers on pre-listing preparation. I know which projects are going to appeal to a broad market and equal a higher sales price. I also offer staging and decluttering advice. It is helpful to have an extra set of eyes on your house to provide honest feedback and suggestions. Extra effort prior to the photoshoot and showings always pays off.
Some agents run general area comps in advance, provide no staging advice, and tell a seller what they want to hear. I pride myself in being forthcoming about my professional opinion of market value after I see the property in person. I take time to give tips and a check list to sellers so their house shows its absolute best, sells as quickly as possible, and for the highest dollar amount the market will allow.
For buyers, I do not rush their homebuying process. I recognize finding the right home or investment can be a journey with changes and pivots to original needs and wants. My goal is for my buyer clients to feel confident and excited about their choice. I provide market research on value before an offer is made. I attend the buyer home inspection appointment, and I am involved in finding referrals for contractors and estimates.
I am a student for life and enjoy attending continuing education to stay on top of the latest trends, tools, and ways to maximize my listings’ exposure. In addition to real estate, I am an avid reader and devour books and podcasts on personal growth, mindfulness, meditation, and wellness. When I’m not working or reading, I enjoy running, biking, swimming, doing yoga, spending time with my family (including my dogs) and friends, cooking, drinking coffee, tea, or wine, meditating, or relaxing outdoors. I love to escape to the beach or the tall pines at least once a year.

I am pleased to recommend Audra, as she helped us buy 3 investment properties in 2020. She is knowledgeable, responsive, and efficient. She offers the right advice and keeps us on track. Her ability to read the local market and offer points for negotiation make her stand out versus her peers.

Audra was a great real estate agent. She provided many options to choose from, had a lot of local knowledge, and was very flexible! She helped me and my husband find 2 amazing homes.

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Audra. She is professional, knowledgeable, and is quick to seek out answers to questions in this ever changing market. Audra has assisted us in both selling and purchasing a home. Both transactions went better than expected because of Audra's expertise. We highly recommend Audra and will be working with her again in our next home purchase.

Working with Audra made our searching for less stressful. She is honest and will not pull any punch when it comes to letting you know her opinion on a home. She wasn't pushy like some of the real estate people were.so in a nut shell working with her was AWESOME.

This is my second time using Audra. The first was 15 years ago! She is an amazing realtor and looked out for us--I think over and above what was required. When I sell or buy a house again, I am calling Audra.

Audra helped my wife and I sell our last home. She was always extremely professional and punctual. She provided great insight on establishing a sales price and communicated with us on every step of the process. I would happily recommend her to anyone that is thinking of buying or selling a home.

I reached out to Audra and she immediately helped me get my financing done with Todd Revineg with Finance of America. What an awesome experience and they are fast! Right after my approval, Audra was sending me homes for my girls and I to review.Words can’t explain how THANKFUL I am for her helping me through this process. Review Audra’s reviews and see the amazing work she does for all the people she helps find their forever home. You will also see the amount of repeat business she gets because she is that good! She’s thorough, quick to respond, honest and her knowledge of the real estate market is superb. Audra’s experience with homes is unmatched and she will point out things I missed because I’m so caught in the moment of buying or giving suggestions of what you can do with your home. Easiest home buying experience ever!!!Thanks again Audra for helping me navigate getting my first home on my own.

There are 10,000 agents in my area to help show, sell, and buy homes - but Audra's talent is that she is ONLY here for her clients. Her extensive local knowledge is endlessly familiar and unique, and her experience to understand what you are needing as a seller and wanting as a buyer can't be found elsewhere. She has independently owned my last few purchases and recent sales, and with all of the normal red tape, she ensured they couldn't have been smoother.

I have now used Audra for the sale of two homes and purchase of one. She is not only knowledgeable about the real estate landscape but HIGHLY responsive and a great communicator on all things throughout the process. She was able to sell our home well over asking price while negotiating the purchase of our new home well under asking. Her attention to detail and transparency is really what sets her apart so would highly recommend her to anyone, especially first time buyers who do not know the process.

I’ve had the privilege of having Audra represent me in both a purchase and the sale of residential properties. She excels in communication with her clients, is extremely professional, and is very sincere in the way she is always looking out for her client’s best interest. Highly recommended!
