I received the 2005 MERIT AWARD from the Bay County REALTOR Association for "Outstanding Service & Contribution to the Real Estate Profession", a very meaningful award within our Association and one I am most proud of!!

Allow me to put my experience and training to work for you!
On A More Personal Note...
I believe to best serve my clients I must treat their real estate needs as if they were my own. My goal is to earn your trust and confidence as we move toward the "Destination of Success" in your next real estate transaction! My approach to helping clients is very straight forward & honest. That means educating my clients & keeping them well informed, being a good listener, using my knowledge, experience, determination & every resource at my disposal to ensure your next real estate transaction is "Smooth Sailing!"
I DO NOT believe one has to be pushy or aggressive to be successful and professional. I DO believe the experience of buying or selling a home should be the beginning of a long term relationship, that service does not end after the sale, and advice is always FREE!
I truly enjoy my career because I love helping people. Typically, this is one of the most important decisions a person will make in their lifetime. It is very important to be comfortable with the agent who will guide you through this process, and it IS a process! I strive to inform and educate my clients about the process so they feel comfortable and confident with me, and more importantly, with their decisions.
Other than real estate, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, sailing and sailboat racing, traveling to places with palm trees & salt water, snorkeling/scuba diving, woodworking, home improvement projects (except for plumbing!), biking, bonfires in the backyard, radio control models, music, dogs and more sailing!
Thank you for taking the time to get to know me. I look forward to assisting you with your real estate goals.
