Welcome to my Website
My long term interest in the field of Real Estate had its origin when I acquired my first rental property several years ago. Since that time my efforts have been spent marketing residential and recreational properties in Benzie & Manistee Counties. As each Realtor has their favorite niche, my area of particular expertise lies in the sale/listing of waterfront properties with particular emphasis on the Betsie River where I am regarded as the local "Maven". My long affiliation with the river in both ownership and sales attests to my success in that arena.
I am experienced in the service industry and have owned and operated a vacation home on the Betsie River for 14 years.
I am a full time Realtor and member of the National, Traverse City and Michigan Association of Realtors and have certification as a negotiation specialist. My goal is to answer all your real estate questions that will help you make informed decisions in all your real estate transactions.
Over the years, one quality that has distinguished me from many other real estate agents is that I've always tried to find new and better ways to do my job.
In addition to continuing my real estate education and extending my professional network, I’ve found that the latest technologies, many of them Internet-based, are enabling me to do everything I've always done, only much more efficiently. Not only do they help me to optimize my time, but they also allow me to keep extending the range of services I provide to my clients.
I am proud of my involvement in the local chamber of commerce and enjoy the civic awareness which results from my association in Zonta International.
Needless to say my church affiliation provides the basis & support of my personal & professional life.
The main thrust of my business has been the residential sector mainly water related properties--thus I have been termed "The Maven of the Betsie River". Another area of interest in which I have enjoyed success is listing & sale of acreage tracts which have outstanding aesthetic appeal.
Prior to moving "up north" I spent my earlier years in the Flushing area raising a family while pursuing my interest in the vocational arts, teaching at the local colleges. As the asphalt glacier approached it became evident that Benzie County had more opportunities not only social & economic but the allure of nuptial waters for kayaking and unlimited trails for hiking & x-country skiing was compelling.
