The harder I work, the luckier I get." -- Samuel Goldwyn
When I moved to Arizona from St. Louis, back in 1999, I made sure to bring my mid-western work ethic. I had some big goals in mind, and I knew I would need it.
I am blessed to be living in the great state of Arizona. I love the weather and, yes, even the heat. For me, there's no sunset like a Sonoran desert sunset, and our prickly pear mountains and azure blue skies are the perfect setting for our unique southwest architecture. I'm still excited to be here after all these years!
My Arizona real estate background includes working for a commercial developer where I managed a substantial portfolio of properties throughout the Phoenix Valley for many years. Upon obtaining my Real Estate License six years ago, I began my successful career as a Luxury Home Specialist with RE/MAX Fine Properties before joining the prestigious Russ Lyon Sotheby's International Realty.
My focus has always been on the Central Corridor areas: Camelback, Biltmore, Arcadia, Paradise Valley, Scottsdale, North Scottsdale, North Phoenix, Carefree and Cave Creek.
My love affair with the many offerings in Arizona architecture began the moment we arrived here from Missouri. The choices are as varied as the breeds of cacti. Buyers have an unlimited selection in: Mid-century Modern, Sleek Contemporary, Old World, Santa Fe and Southwest, Tuscan, Mediterranean, Classic Ranch, Spanish Hacienda and more.
Sellers should know you won't find a stronger marketing agent than me. Thinking of creative ideas to get your home noticed and generate more traffic is not only constantly on my mind, but I'm good at it.
Buyers should know I love the "hunt"! Tell me what you like and let me go to work for you. I love previewing homes, whether looking for a specific home for a client or just previewing for my own market knowledge.

Whether you are a buyer or seller, choosing a real estate agent is no small endeavor. There are some important qualifying factors you should know that come with choosing me:
You should also know I'm a realtor who prides herself on being a good listener. Doing a good job for you starts with really hearing what it is you are trying to accomplish. So expect to be heard. And then expect to be satisfied. You will be. "The harder I work, as your realtor, the luckier we both get." --Kelly Tiff
