After twelve years in the non-profit and education sector, I entered the world of real estate to team up with my long-time friend and Realtor, Krista Miller. I love helping people and being a realtor allows me to do that in a most satisfying and fun way! In a business that moves at warp speed, where things are constantly changing and where snags and bumps are inevitable, it’s important to be quick on your feet, knowledgeable, responsive, and resourceful. It helps if you can keep your cool and have a sense of humor too!
Would someone describe you as an early bird or a night owl?
Really a night owl – I love being up late at night and sleeping in in the morning. My two girls are the same way which leads to some hectic mornings at my house.
Favorite restaurant or hang out?
Any coffee shop with a plug for my computer, some tunes playing in the background and an awesome iced –tea! My current favorite spots right now are Hal’s on Solano or Boot n’ Shoe on Grand but I am always looking!
Famous person (living or dead) you’d most like to meet?
I’m a huge fiction reader – there are so many authors I’d love to meet …on the top of the list is probably is Barbara Kingsolver.
What’s your mantra?
“Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming” – Dori
What’s your most treasured possession (besides your phone!)?
That’s a tough one. When I was in the 10th grade, I took a rafting trip down the Colorado River with my classmates (from my all girls school). On that trip, we tied a bunch of canoes together and read the “Princess Bride” out loud to each other. It is one of my favorite memories and somewhere the copy of that book still exists – I can’t remember if I have it or if a classmate has it but just the thought that’s it out there makes me smile.
What would you tell your 16-year old self?
“Relax, everything WILL work out.”
Funniest/most interesting thing you’ve ever found in a house you’ve helped someone buy or sell?
In a seller’s man-cave, we found a gigantic engine on some sort of elevated bar, right next to the wall mounted TV and beer fridge, fully stocked.
