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, in the Greater Grand Rapids area, and have also lived in New Jersey, Illinois, Wisconsin and Pennyslvania.  I have lived in cities, suburban and rural areas.  I have lived in the Big Rapids area for the last 12 years, and currently live near the Manistee National Forest in Newaygo County, Michigan.   My husband and I have been blessed with 6 children, and 12 grandchildren.
