I am a native Oregonian, born and raised in Eastern Oregon, Pendleton, home of the famous Pendleton Round-Up. After living there for 18 years I relocated with my family to Salem and I have lived in the Salem/Keizer area for over 27 years. After spending 9 years in the building supply industry, I made the decision to pursue my true passion: residential real estate. I am married to a wonderful man named David and we have a beautiful daughter Emily. I love the challenge and opportunity of finding the perfect match – whether it is the right buyer for your house, or the ideal home for your family. I look forward to helping you with your real estate needs.
Ever Changing Market
It is impossible to turn on the television or pick up a newspaper without hearing how volatile the real estate market and economy are right now. While these uncertain times certainly warrant a cautious approach, for many, there may not be a better time to enter or invest further in the real estate market. Interest rates for mortgages are at historic lows. Prices have dropped in some areas, while there are also signs of stabilizing and a slight improvement in others. For those in a position to buy, or sell & buy up, these are excellent conditions. And of course there are other times when life doesn't give us the luxury of waiting for the most optimal conditions to make a change. Regardless of your situation, be assured that I am committed to helping you navigate any challenges and explore all options. I work hard to stay on top of market trends so that I can best serve your interests.
Any successful partnership - in business or in life - requires good communication. The fact that the lines between the personal and the professional are blurred at best in a real estate transaction makes communication even more vital. The purchase or sale of a home is likely the largest, and certainly the most important transaction of a lifetime. It can be a very exciting, yet extremely stressful event. My commitment as your Realtor® is to keep you informed from start to finish, as well as to listen and respond to any concerns that may arise. I am here to help guide you through the process with the same care I would personally want in an agent and keeping you informed is an important part of this.
I firmly believe that regardless of who I am representing, both buyer and seller are served much better by a trusted advisor and problem-solver than by a salesperson. In an ideal real estate transaction, all parties should come out ahead. I strive to approach every business interaction with the utmost integrity, honesty, trustworthiness, hard work, and dedication. I will work efficiently and effectively to get you to the next phase of your life and be a pro-active resource to pave the way. I will help reduce the amount of time and energy you need to spend on the real estate process. I am here for you, your family and friends, or anyone you might know needing real estate advise and guidance.
