As an Associate Broker with Russ Lyon Sotheby's International Realty, I truly enjoy my career in real estate! My extensive experience in the real estate, finance and legal industries includes positions as a Title and Escrow Officer, Real Estate and Bankruptcy Paralegal, Director of a Fortune 500 Legal Dept., a Residential Loan Originator and Vice President of a Commercial Real Estate Group for a large national banking institution.
This experience together with the massive power of the Sotheby's Brand provides the pinnacle of real estate expertise and exposure in assisting Sellers and Buyers with all their residential real estate needs at level second to none.
My business education includes an MBA from the University of Phoenix and a B.S. in Business Management from Western International. Continuing education in real estate has afforded me specialty designations as an Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR) and as a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS). Only 5% of agents in the U.S. hold this designation with CRS agents selling 4 times the number of homes of a non-CRS agent. I also am a Certified Residential Military Specialist recognizing the importance of assisting our nation’s military with their home buying and selling needs.
I am a member of the National Association of Realtors®, the Arizona Association of Realtors®, the Scottsdale Association of Realtors® and the Scottsdale Women’s Council of Realtors®.
Outside of real estate, giving back to the community is very important to me. I am a foster parent and participant for Arizona Pug Rescue. Volunteering for Hospice of the Valley with my pet therapy partner, Kobe, the Pug, we enjoy visiting with each of our patients. A portion of each sales transaction goes to support several no-kill animal shelters in Maricopa County.
The recipient of numerous awards for Sales Volume and Superior Customer Service, I strive to exceed client expectations. This philosophy and work ethic affords me 100% client satisfaction and continuous referrals from clients, friends and business associates.
Dedicated Educated Experienced "White Glove Service" each and every time.
