More About Me

About me...

After 15 years of owning a chocolate company in Fremont, I sold my business and made a career change to real estate. It was a perfect transition – I put to use the creativity (yes, real estate today has to be creative) and the high level of client care I practiced in my chocolate business. Listening to clients as they deal with critical issues in buying or selling a home is one of my strong suits. Realtors are problem solvers and I take that on with enthusiasm and a great deal of patience. Real Estate has been a great career for me and I love what I do.




I graduated from Portland State University and settled in Seattle in a houseboat on Lake Union. For the past 20 years I have lived in Ballard with my husband, Joe. Tutoring at BF Day School in Fremont, running, reading a good book are all favorite things to do when I am not selling real estate.

I am committed to providing exceptional service to my clients, which is why the majority of my business is referral based. The biggest compliments I continue to receive are referrals from my valued clients.




Buying or selling real estate is complex and emotional. However, I can help you through the process with skill, understanding, patience…and a sense of humor. I look forward to guiding you on the path to home ownership or selling your home and starting a new chapter.
