Licensed Real Estate Broker
My career path towards real estate was most impacted by my experiences growing up in a family of entrepreneurs and contractors. Helping my parents with their businesses from a young age taught me the basics of running a business, the necessity of integrity and most importantly, it taught me the value of hard work. I had my first taste of customer service as a host at a steakhouse. I discovered that I have a natural talent for working with and relating to people and continued to waitress throughout high school and college, eventually moving into bartending. My experiences thus far have revealed that I LOVE helping others and would be happiest in a profession that allows me to connect with new people every day and leave a positive mark on their life. I believe that you are always one decision away from a totally different life. That turning point for me came when I made what I now know to be one of the best investments of my life. I bought my first home at the young age of 19. Although my home was quite the fixer upper, it was MINE, and that was an exhilarating feeling. The experience was wonderful, primarily because I worked with a phenomenal Realtor who helped me navigate the ins and outs of the real estate market. It impressed upon me the important role that Realtors have in the lives of their clients, and sparked my desire to be that helping hand to the people around me. The combination of that feeling, my love for helping others, my experience in home remodeling, and my degree in business carved the path for me to become a Realtor.
My Bond with the Willamette Valley
After my family planted their roots and raised me in the small farming town of Jefferson, my love for Oregon and the Willamette Valley continues to grow every day. Knowing that I wanted the Valley to be my home, I chose to attend Oregon State University because of the small-town feel that Corvallis and the surrounding areas offer. In my down time, I love to take advantage of the endless activities our beautiful state offers, whether it be hiking, hunting, fishing, or a short drive to the lake, beach, or mountains.
As a Real Estate professional I believe that by connecting with my clients, utilizing my skills and market knowledge and having their best interest at heart, I can serve them in a way that leaves a lasting impression and helps them to achieve their dreams. I take pride in my ability to make others feel at ease with my approachable attitude and steadfast commitment to meeting their needs. I can’t wait to meet with you and learn how I can help you improve your future.
