About Me

Women's Council of REALTORS member

PROFILE

I began my real estate career in May 1993.  I learned quickly that there is more to selling homes than just looking at them.  Helping my clients with a life changing decision is my number one priority.  I try to insure that they feel comfortable with all aspects of the transaction, from getting qualified, to viewing homes, to making an offer with all the proper documents, to reviewing any issues on the title commitment and survey, and finally signing closing documents and transferring ownership.  I continue to keep in contact with my clients even after all is said and done at closing.  My clients know that I am always available for all their real estate needs.  When my clients are ready to sell a property, I help them understand all aspects of market conditions, what to expect during the sale process and reassure them that I will handle all concerns of the sale.  I understand that their daily lives are busy, so I want to take on the challenges of the sale so the seller is not bothered with the intricate details.  After all, that is why they hired me.

PERSONAL HISTORY

I was born in Greeley, Colorado on January 12, 1969 in to a ranching family.  I started riding horses as soon as I could walk.  My father is an avid motorcycle rider and introduced me to motorcycles, auto mechanics and classic cars/trucks.  Growing up in a small community of Walsenburg, Colorado, I was 1 out of 50 graduates of the John Mall High School class of 1987.

After high school I moved to El Paso and attended International Business College.  Upon graduating, I began a career in the Catering Sales Department at the El Paso Airport Hilton.

Looking for an adventure, I moved to Phoenix, Arizona to work in the Convention Services Department at the Pointe Tapatio Cliffs.

Having learned that there is no place like El Paso, I moved “home”.  There after I attended the Academy of Real Estate and embarked on my real estate career.

PERSONAL

I enjoy cooking, baking, gardening and yard work.  Not all my “down time” is spent around the house.  I like to going horseback riding or spend time riding with my husband on his Harley Davidson.  When possible, I treasure El Paso’s scenery by hiking, rock hunting and bird watching.
