In addition to working with single family homes, I also work with selling vacant land, cabins and cottages, and even some commercial properties.  Whether you are a first-time home-buyer or have purchased multiple properties, I can help you!

Welcome to my Website

Having personally been on both sides of a move many times, I understand what is involved in buying or selling a home or property. I am commited to guide you through the process from beginning to end to insure that the end result is what you desire.  I have been a Realtor for 10 years and continue to learn how to best help both buyers and selles accomplish their goals!

My goal is to give you Professional Service with a Personal Touch!  If you have questions about anything regarding buying or selling your home or property I will find the answers for you! 

Community Involvement

Professional Background

Education is one of my passions - Real Estate is another. I have spent many years in education at all levels from Pre-school through High school as a teacher and administrator, para-professional and secretary.  I have been a Licensed Realtor for many years.  Providing the best service that I can give is my number one goal!



I have attended Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan, William Paterson University in Wayne, New Jersey,  Ashford Unitversity in Clinton, Iowa, and East Stroudsburg University in Pennsylvania.  I have degrees in education and human behavior/liberal arts.

I take Continuing Education classes in Real Estate.  Every Real Estate transaction provides me with more "education" as each is unique! 

Personal Interests

My husband and I love to travel and have been to many different parts of our wonderful country! I enjoy being able to introduce buyers to the new communities they are moving to. 

Personal Background

I grew up in Michigan, and have also lived in New Jersey, Illinois, Wisconsin, and  Pensylvania.  When we moved back to "Pure Michigan" 15 plus years ago, we lived near Big Rapids and the Manistee National Forest in Newaygo County, Michigan.   My husband and I have been blessed with children, and grandchildren and spending time with them is always a joy.  We enjoy traveling within this wonderful country and beautiful state we live in.  But, there is no place like "HOME" and it is always a joy and privilege to help people find their own home and assist them with all that is involved with that.
