I was born in California where I lived for about ten years before moving to Lake Oswego, Oregon, which I consider home. I moved to Seattle to attend the University of Washington, and after graduating with a degree in finance, I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.
I worked as an accountant after college and then as a project manager at Ivey Imaging, where I managed the details of several large accounts, including Nike and Adidas. In 2007, I jumped at the opportunity to try my hand at real estate. I began as a client manager for a broker at a small firm and after about a year, decided to break out on my own and moved to Windermere in Queen Anne. After a decade at Windermere, I made the move to Compass in 2018 to take advantage of the cutting edge tools and technology they provide to agents, which will ultimately give me more time to dedicate to the people that matter most: my clients.
I am dedicated to serving my clients' needs and am committed to helping them reach their goals. I work around a customer service-based model and was voted as a "Five Star Best in Client Satisfaction Real Estate Agents" for the last five years. l enjoy all avenues of a real estate transaction, from negotiations to closing and everything in-between. In 2010 I obtained my designation as a Certified Negotiations Expert, and continue to place a high importance on ongoing education as a real estate expert in today's ever-changing market.
I absolutely love exploring Seattle’s unique neighborhoods and have lived in nearly every one of them. I currently live in Magnolia with my husband Blade, our daughters Alistair and Taylor, and our dog, Seeley. I also have a passion for interior design and transforming rooms using vintage and re-purposed items, and have a sweet spot for modern design and architectural styles.
