My extensive experience and local knowledge are what buyers and sellers expect in a real estate transaction.
As a listing agent in the Coachella Valley, my goal is simple -- to sell your home for the most amount of money in the shortest amount of time. My custom marketing plan includes extensive newspaper and internet advertising, direct mail, personal contact and open houses.
For buyers, I search until I find the perfect property and then help negotiate the best possible deal for you. I'm not satisfied until you're satisfied.
Following graduation from California State University, Fresno in 1973, I embarked on a nearly 30 career in the newspaper industry. After retiring in 2000, boredom quickly set in and I launched a second career in residential real estate here in the Coachella Valley.
Throughout both of my careers, I’ve always felt it important to give back to the community. I’ve been a member of Rotary International for over 35 years and recently completed a term as president of the Palm Desert Palms To Pines Rotary Club.
I was one of the first desert Realtors to earn the National Association of Realtors' (NAR) new Resort and Second-Home Property Specialist (RSPS) certification. Since the desert area is this state's most active resort market and the number of second home owners is immense, I felt it was important to learn how to meet the needs of desert buyers and sellers. Certification required completion of over 40 hours of advanced coursework.
I'm also proud to have earned the Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES) designation. I've assembled a team of specialists including elder law attorneys, estate and trust attorneys, accountants and investment advisors with the necessary knowledge and expertise to counsel senior clients through major financial and lifestyle transitions involved in relocating, refinancing or selling the family home.
In 2012, I completed the necessary course work to sit for and pass the California Real Estate Broker's Examination.
