I grew up in western New York and attended Arizona State University. I received my Bachelors of Science in Marketing from the College of Business at ASU. After graduating, I worked in sales for several large corporations, including Motorola, Alltel, Bank of America, Browning Ferris, Paychecks, A.D.P., and others.
In 1995, I received a Arizona Real Estate License. I am an active member of the National Association of Realtors, The Phoenix Association of Realtors, and have several professional designations, including ABR, Accredited Buyer Specialist, CRS, Certified Residential Specialist, GRI, Graduate of the Realtor Institute and CDPE, Certified Distressed Property Specialist. I am education based and attend training monthly.
I have lived in South Mountain Village since 1983, and believe that South Mountain Village and Laveen are one of the Valley’s best-kept secrets. The wonderful people, the beauty of South Mountain Park/Preserve, the rich history, the Japanese flower gardens, the citrus groves, spectacular views and proximity to downtown Phoenix were what attracted me to the area I now specializes in.
I am proud to have been involved in opening a Keller Williams office in South Mountain in 1993. I have a team of specialists that work together to provide a very high level of service to the community. All team members are long-time residents of the area and have a passion for and a vast knowledge of the area.
