As with many REALTORS®, my career in real estate came after doing something else. For 22 years I worked as a paralegal with a top real-estate attorney in Tucson. There’s not much about a contract I don’t know! But after “doing law” for more than two decades it was time for a change. In 2003 I earned my sales license, and eventually my broker’s license. It was a natural progression.
Community and professional service is important to me. In 2017 I joined a team from my church to build a home in Puerto Peñasco (also known as Rocky Point), a seaside town in the Mexican state of Sonora. I’ve worked with Habitat for Humanity, the Red Cross, and charitable projects of the Tucson Association of REALTORS®. And in December of 2018 I took office as President of the Tucson Association of REALTORS®. What a humbling honor and responsibility!
Friends say I’m down-to-earth, sociable and fun to be around (I adore Disney World). To that I’d add patient, hard-working, knowledgeable, and an excellent listener and negotiator. As a semi-native Tucsonan—I moved here with my family in 1975—I relish showing off our wonderful Old Pueblo. Bringing joy to my clients by helping them find that special home is tremendously rewarding.
Every transaction, and every client, gets my best work, but some do stand out more than others. With one couple I worked for three years to find their dream home. Not only did we finally succeed, but we negotiated a rock-bottom price for the adjoining lot. Plus all the gorgeous furnishings and furniture!
I work with both buyers and sellers. Among my specialties is helping second-home buyers, retirees and people who are relocating to Tucson. Most of my clients are from out of state. But not all of them! How can I help you today?
