Thank you for visiting my Website!

I am glad you are here! I am confident you will find this is a wonderful resource designed to assist you in your search for properties for sale.

Professional Background

My career in real estate began in 1986 as a secretary at the Holland Board of Realtors.  After getting married, starting a family, and building a home in Hamilton, I became a part time assistant to two highly successful agents at Woodland Realty and remained there for 11 years.  Along with owning a residential construction company with my husband Carl since 1995, I was also involved in Ministry work with high risk teens for many years.  In 2009, I returned to the Real Estate Industry aggressively working in the local market as a full time assistant.  Now I am thrilled to once again be part of the Coldwell Banker Woodland Schmidt Team, this time as an agent at the same company where my real estate career originally began.  Being a Licensed Realtor is an endeavor I am excited to pursue with knowledge and integrity.

Personal Background

I grew up on the north side of Holland in Waukazoo Woods and graduated from West Ottawa High School in 1986.  I have been happily married to my husband Carl since 1987.  We had our first child, Cody, in 1988, at which time we also bought our first house in Zeeland.  In 1991 we had a daughter, Katie and purchased property in Hamilton where we designed and built a house which is where we live today.  We also enjoy spending time with our beautiful granddaughter, Evianna.  We attend Central Wesleyan Church in Holland.

Professional Interests

Co-owning a residential construction company has truly helped me discover my gifts and talents in decorating and interior design.  I am very visual with an eye for color and staging a property which goes hand in hand with real estate.  I really enjoy bringing a home to life and am excited to utilize my decorating skills to help both buyers and sellers.

Personal Interests

Living in the woods, I have grown to truly appreciate nature and wildlife.  With my husband Carl being an avid hunter and fisherman, we have been blessed to have been born and raised in West Michigan and appreciate the Lake Michigan shore line. 

My background in Ministry has helped me discover my love for people and the desire to encourage those around me.  Building relationships and helping others is truly a rewarding experience.  I look forward to not only assisting buyers and sellers with their real estate needs but also gain their friendship along the way. 

I love Mexican food, hiking, boating, camping and spending time with family and friends.
