I am pleased to have joined Long Realty Company. The unparalleled resources and global marketing reach of Long Realty, plus the deep trust and respect the company has earned over the last 90 years made it an easy decision. I considered other brokerages, but the combination of my skills magnified by Long Realty's overwhelming local market share sealed my choice. I can offer my clients the best possible advantage in today's real estate environment. Simply said, this is a perfect match!
What I bring to my real estate career: I bring a lot of enthusiasm and fresh ideas to market your home. I have 30+ years of negotiating skills through my career in retail sales. I consider myself a people person and I love meeting new people and working with them to make their dreams come true. I have also dabbled in real estate buying and selling since I bought my first home 1995 and have always been fascinated by it because it allows me to use my creativity. I am creative when it comes to marketing a home and have the ability to decorate and stage a home just right and grab the attention of a prospective buyer. I am a good listener and have the ability to understand a clients needs. My ultimate goal is to build a lasting relationship that is more than a real estate agent. I want to bring my clients the kind of customer service that I would personally expect from an agent. Ultimately I want to be your trusted advisor.
My past careers: Most of my career has been in retail. I have a diverse cultural background and have been privileged to work with many different nationalities. I worked in the buying unit at the JCPenney Corp. headquartered in Plano, TX, for 18 years doing mostly merchandising and marketing; also some systems management and training. I also worked as an Import Specialist for International Development Corp, which is a solar lighting company where I had to communicate with the factories over in China.
My hobbies include: Well I’m a traditional sort of person who thrives on family, especially my my grandchildren. I also love nature and wildlife, especially birds, which sometimes leads me down the many trails in Tucson. I am currently a mommy to a cockatiel named Sparkles, a Cockatoo named Charlie, a Miniature Australian Shepherd named Ollie, a pound puppy named Daisy, and a rescued kitty named Callie. I also love All types of crafts; oil painting, sewing, quilting, quilling, crocheting, wood burning, wood carving, and photography. My new hobby is making projects with my new Cricut maker; vinyl wall art, t-shirts, greeting cards, you name it!
My accomplishments: My first year in real estate, I was awarded the Executive Club Membership with Long Realty. I recently coordinated a large open house blitz that improved the foot-traffic of the homes for sale in the Rancho Vistoso Community. The endeavor was appreciated by my co-agents and I received the Agent of the Month award.
More about me: I was born and raised in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma but moved to the Dallas/Fort Worth Texas area in 1987 where I finished raising my four children. I moved to Tucson in 2016 when my husband was offered a position as Service Director for Tucson Subaru. I have found that the the people in Tucson are incredibly friendly. It doesn’t take very long to get where you’re going and the traffic is next to nothing compared to where I come from. The weather is wonderful for most of the year and I will take monsoons over Texas tornadoes any day!
