I’m putting the extensive communication, research and investigative skills gained during 25 years as a professional journalist to great use as a Realtor®. A proactive problem-solver who’s used to meeting or exceeding deadlines, I strive to make the home-buying/selling process as seamless as possible for my clients. I understand the importance of asking questions, am focused on finding answers and will seek out every available resource in the process. I believe that in this business, being a clear communicator is essential. Consequently, my clients are confident they can call on me whenever they need assistance.
A transplanted Arkansan, I feel right at home here in the Cascades, where there’s a great appreciation for the outdoors and the many diverse recreational opportunities the area provides. Like many of my neighbors, I’m a horse owner and trail rider. That love of horses and the outdoors has proven invaluable in helping clients find the ideal rural, resort and horse properties.
In November 2006, I received my GRI designation (Graduate, Realtor Institute). I also was awarded a 2006 RE/MAX Executive Club membership for outstanding sales performance. In April 2009, I received my Certified Distressed Property Expert designation.
I’ve been active in the Central Oregon Association of Realtors®’ Communications Committee, and I have an ongoing commitment to supporting the Bend Area Habitat for Humanity (I periodically provide my services as a writer, and volunteer as a cashier at the Bend ReStore each Thursday afternoon). I’m a huge fan of Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch, a horse-rescue and at-risk youth outreach facility based in Tumalo, not far from where I live.
I’ m a past Advisory Committee member for The Nature of Words Literary Festival in Bend, and also spent four years as an active member of the Assistance League of Bend (serving on the Resource Development, Public Relations, Philanthropy & Membership committees), which provides new clothing for schoolkids in need and oversees a broad range of other community-oriented assistance projects.
