Growing up in Tucson, I am a true Arizona native with a strong background in teaching and small business ownership. I launched my career in Marketing directly out of college after graduating from NAU with a BA degree in advertising. Recognizing a passion for teaching, I subsequently went on to receive my master's in secondary education and taught Language Arts at the high school level. As a former English teacher, I strive for improvement, development, and refinement, whether it's personal or professional. I have my sights set on raising the bar in real estate on a structural level. To that end, I serve on several boards with the AAR (Arizona Association of REALTORS®), create and teach continuing education classes around the state, and proactively research methods for improving my own process wherever possible. I have served on the AAR Professional Standards Grievance Panal for 5 years and currently am the AAR Chairman for Grievance leading a team of 10, hearing 125 cases a year on arbitration and ethic violations. I also serve as a Director on the Phoenix Association of REALTORS® which aids in implementation from the local level to the state level with information. As the owner and designated broker for my company, I take my responsibility to guide my agents and clients very seriously. With the GRI (Graduate, REALTOR® Institute), CRS (Certified Residential Specialist), and SFR (Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource Certification) designations, I am knowledgeable about all aspects of the real estate process. Outside of work, my priority is spending time with my husband, Greg, my sons, Austin and Drew, and my resident fur angel/Golden Retriever, Oliver. I also enjoy traveling, playing competitive tennis, diving, and—when my muscles are spent—painting. Having lived in Arizona my entire life, I know this city inside and out. We are blessed with incredible natural beauty and diverse cultural influences that have made Phoenix a vibrant destination for art, food, and entertainment. As a Long Realty franchise owner, it is my (and by extension, my team's) mission to help you get the most out of your life in this city. Please let us know how we can help you buy or sell your Phoenix property today!
