About Me - Buyer's Agent, Listing Agent, Relocation, Investment


Specializing in  North County San Diego Real Estate with an emphasis on Carlsbad, Encinitas and Oceanside Homes, I take pride in understanding your needs and perspectives so I can focus on helping you achieve your real estate goals.  My reputation is based upon professionalism, honesty, integrity and hard work and I am proud to have been named a Five Star Real Estate Agent by San Diego Magazine for the last 5 years. My clients know they matter to me and that I am determined to get them where they want to go! I love finding the perfect home for you whether you are relocating, a first time home buyer, possibly downsizing or ready to move into your DREAM home!  If you are thinking about becoming a first time investor, I can help, too.  I own and self-manage several apartment buildings and rental homes in the local area and not only understand the challenges and rewards of being a property owner but also have a long list of vendors and resources to help you. When selling your home, I will help you price your home strategically to bring you the highest profit in the shortest amount of time.   My 14 step Marketing Plan and negotiation skills have helped me maintain a 98% list price to sell price ratio. When buying a home, we will start with an in-depth consultation to help you find the perfect neighborhood and home.  I will work closely with you to write a successful offer and guide you through the entire escrow process leading up to that exciting day when you receive the keys to your new home.

*Selling? I have local resources to help you get ready to sell and include a free professional cleaning and photography with every listing. Top notch marketing and sales price analysis will help you sell quickly.

*Buying? I will preview homes to ensure they are your "match" to maximize your time and include a professional cleaning and 1 year home warranty.

*Investing in rental property? I will find you the first tenant and complete all paperwork for you free of charge. 

 I have been a Carlsbad resident for 15 years and love living in La Costa Valley with my husband, Steve, and two daughters, both in college. I enjoy volunteering in the community with my daughters, supporting such great local organizations as the Community Resource Center, Rancho Coastal Humane Society, San Diego Botanic Gardens and the Carlsbad Boys and Girls Club.
