A proud native of Arizona, I graduated from Arizona State University (4.0 GPA; Summa Cum Laude), in 2002 with a degree in Finance and went on to earn my Masters of Science in Accountancy from the University of Notre Dame. Since I've always loved Arizona, I then moved back home - I honestly can't imagine living or working anywhere else.
After settling in, I went to work as a Senior Auditor for Ernst & Young, a 'Big 4' accounting firm, later moving on to become a Senior Financial Analyst for DMB Associates, a respected real estate developer specializing in high-end master-planned communities. During my tenure at DMB, I became part of DMB's sales team servicing the exclusive community of Silverleaf in North Scottsdale. This experience fueled and solidified my passion for high-end real estate sales, and in fact, as part of the Silverleaf team, I helped contribute to the sale of over $200,000,000 in home and homesite sales. It was there that I also became aware of the first-class reputation enjoyed by Russ Lyon Sotheby's International Realty and made it my goal to one day become part of this elite team - a goal I'm proud to say that I've now accomplished.
One of the primary attributes that sets me apart from many REALTORs® is my in-depth knowledge and understanding of the financial side of any transaction, a skill that enables me to ensure that my clients' financial needs are very well-served. In addition, the fact that I am currently single with no children means that I am able to devote my total focus, intensity and time to the needs of my clients.
In closing, colleagues have described me as "positive," "optimistic," "trustworthy," "hard-working" and "ethical" - traits that I value highly in both my work and my personal life. My hope and objective is that after a client and I have completed a real estate transaction, he or she would also agree with these words.
