I love helping people buy and sell real estate and I love running my own business and meeting new people. Real estate is a service business. I am here to share my years of experience and knowledge to help my clients weave thru the legalities, negotiations, current market conditions, and what makes a great home to buy and how a home will sell quickly and for the most money. I have been so blessed to have worked for many clients that I now consider friends. They truly are my definition of success. Personally, I was born and raised in Des Moines. After living in Los Angeles and Seattle for a number of years, I moved back home to help my aging parents. It was a very blessed circle of life decision and one that I will never regret. I stumbled upon real estate and realized this was the perfect career for me. My business was mine to create, I could be very successful, or not so much. The decision was mine to make. I have been extremely blessed with this wonderful career that I work as a business and treat as my family. I love this quote: "The harder you work, the luckier you get." Very true indeed.
