Welcome to my Website
Thank you for visiting my website. My goal is to provide you with the necessary information that will guide you through the process of buying or selling a home.
LISTENING is a SKILL! Let's begin our journey together with me LISTENING to you! Your wants, your needs, your questions and your concerns. When the lines of communication are effective and clear, it accomplishes the ultimate goal.
"Your satisfaction is my reputation!"
A satisfied customer/client is one who feels respected, listened to and important enough for the employer to go the EXTRA MILE! You will share your experience with others, and in order for my "Report Card" to make the Honor Roll, I must not only meet your expectations, but EXCEED them!
As a previous business owner, and one who has attended numerous seminars/presentations/ workshops on Customer Service, Communication and Leadership, please know that serving you with honesty, integrity and "doing the right things for the right reasons," are top priority!
The greatest accomplishment(s) in my life are my son and daughter. Raised and on their own for a "few" years, it is a great honor to acknowledge that my son started his business at the age of 20, and has grown it to a multimillion dollar company. He is the owner of DAILY DEALS outlet store(s) in the Grand Rapids area, and NATURAL CHOICE FOODS, Inc. My daughter has been with the company since the infancy stage, and continues to play an intricate role in the success of the business(es). She is a disciplined, focused, ambitious and intelligent woman!
As a lifelong learner and one who has a passion for serving others, my story began in 1981 when I became a Jazzercise Instructor/Franchise Owner. My territory was Cadillac and Big Rapids, and later, Big Rapids and Sparta. I taught up to ten classes a week until 1998.
During this time I offered the Kids Get Fit Program, and was certified to teach the Know More Diet. I was a Speaker/Trainer for numerous Woman's Wellness Groups/Conferences throughout the state of Michigan.
In 2003, I opened SHAY-LEY'S Hair Salong, and employed five stylists. I was chosen to be part of the Train the Trainer program with Milady, and served as a support trainer for trainers at hair shows in Chicago, Indiana and Michigan. I developed and produced a CD series called, "SALON SUCCESS."
In 2007, I became a LIFESUCCESS CONSULTANT, trained by Bob Proctor and Paul Martinelli. Since that time, I have organized and facilitated numerous Mastermind Groups, studying the book THINK AND GROW RICH by Napoleon Hill. I have taught the Goal Achiever Seminar, The Success Principles, A,B,C,D'S for Success, CHANGE it UP!, FINISH STRONG, as well as numerous programs presented for the students of Career Tech, and for those participating in Career Day.
I have been a speaker/presenter for COSTCO, the MICHIGAN DENTAL ASSOCIATION, Eagle Village, the Chamber of Commerce and hosted my own presentations/workshops. I am a Certified Life Coach.
I was coached by the Canfield Corporation (Jack Canfield/Chicken Soup for the Soul author), for a year. Have attended his live seminars, along with numerous other Personal Growth and Development mentors!
"When I am through learning, I am through!"
What can I learn from YOU that will help me assist you with the buying or selling process?!
Cadillac is where I was born and raised, as was my mom and dad, and grandparents. It is "home!" I lived in Sparta, MI, a small community NW of Grand Rapids, from 1988-1999. Relocated back to Cadillac in 1999.
My brother owned and operated the 7up business in Cadillac from (about) 1970-2001, when he retired. Both brothers worked together creating a successful, fulfilling business!
I support and donate to PRECIOUS GEMS, a home for young adult women. Have done numerous volunteer programs for the Career Tech School. Have been a presenter for the Chamber of Commerce. Have been a volunteer presenter for Career Day. Have volunteered for Toys for Tots, and Project Christmas.
When my children were in school, I volunteered as lunch room mom, playground mom, and library mom.
WRAPPING IT UP!
"A good criterion for measuring your success in life is the number of people you have made happy."
