As an Associate Broker with Russ Lyon Sotheby's International Realty, I truly enjoy my career in real estate! My extensive prior work experience in the real estate, finance and legal industries affords me the unique opportunity to utilize this knowledge set for the benefit of my clients. Prior positions include Title and Escrow Officer, Real Estate and Bankruptcy Paralegal, Director of a Fortune 500 Legal Dept., a Residential Loan Originator and Vice President of a Commercial Real Estate Group for a large national banking institution.
My business education includes an MBA from the University of Phoenix and a B.S. in Business Management from Western International. Continuing education in real estate has resulted in specialty designations as an EcoBroker®, the "Green" designation, an Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR) and as a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS). Only 4% of Realtors® in the U.S. hold the CRS designation which is earned based on sales volume in addition to education. I also am a Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) which allows me to effectively assist clients who are in financial hardship and need to sell their property through the sometimes complicated short sale process.
I am a member of the National Association of Realtors®, the Arizona Association of Realtors®, the Scottsdale Association of Realtors® and the Scottsdale Women’s Council of Realtors®.
Outside of real estate, giving back to the community is very important to me. Volunteering for Hospice of the Valley with my pet therapy partner, Kobe, the Pug, we enjoy visiting with each of our patients. As a foster parent for Arizona Pug Rescue, I am happy to provide a loving home to abandoned dogs in transition until ideal forever homes are found.
The recipient of numerous awards for Sales Volume and Superior Customer Service, I strive to exceed client expectations. This philosophy and work ethic affords me 100% client satisfaction and continuous referrals from clients, friends and business associates.
