Welcome to my Website
Hi and welcome! A career change has led me to the exiciting business of helping people with their housing needs. I would be honored to help you list your house or find a new one.
Having had horses and lived on farms for many years, I consider myself an expert on equestrian properties.
I enjoy working with first time buyers.
I enjoy commercial real estate.
Of course, I would love to help you market your waterfront home or property on our beautiful White Lake, Duck Lake or Lake Michigan.
For over 20 years, I ran my own dressage horse training business. Prior to that I worked in automobile manufacturing as a quality assurance manager.
My professional interests include a love of animals. I am a licensed veterinary technician in the state of MI. to me, working with animal clients and their owners is not a job, but a fun way to spend time.
My hobbies include anything to do with horses. I love to read and consider myself a "life long learner" always interested in new things. I love animals and working with them. I am a member of St.James Church in Montague, and have served in many capacities as a volunteer over the years.
While growing up, my family moved a lot. I'm living in my 14th residence. Very familiar with packing, showing and selling a home, and moving. I am a mother of one, a stepmother of one, and a grandmother of two.
My son attended Whitehall Schools, so with that came lots of volunteer opportunities. From adopt-a-reader to room mother, to computer helper, to after prom party organizer, we had lots of fun. I still remember the day he said "Mom, you don't really have to come on EVERY field trip"!
My community volunteerism has included working on political campaigns, reading to the people at the juvenile detention center, and helping with special olympics.
I have been involved with my church, St.James Catholic in Montague in lots of volunteer capacities, including the giving tree, religious education, pastoral council, and many others.
Why is buying or selling a home so complicated?
In our society, we love paper. Everyone in a transaction must be told and copied on each and every detail. Full disclosure about what you are buying/selling is only fair. Realtors receive many, many hours of education before they get licensed, and after, to learn how to service their clients and customers in the correct way.
Our job is not just to list a home or find a new one for a buyer, that is only the beginning. From researching the title to doing a proper job of marketing, to helping someone get financing, the list goes on and on.
So, when you end up at the closing table and see the huge pile of papers, it is the result of a lot of work on the part of your Realtor and others. It can be complicated, but is necessary.
I graduated from Spring Lake High School, New River Community College in Dublin, Virginia, and Baker College in Muskegon.
I am a Licensed Veterinary Technician, a certified dressage horse show judge, and a Licensed Realtor for the state of MI.
