Navigating the Buying/Selling process can sometimes feel like climbing Mount Everest! It's fun and exciting, but safest when guided by an expert you trust. I will help you navigate the real estate landscape to reach your goals! As a full-time Real Estate Broker with negotiating skills only a seasoned professional can provide, technical expertise, commitment to my client's needs, and a career spanning over 20 years, I have built a solid reputation as a dedicated professional who successfully manages the most challenging real estate transactions.
My goal with every client is to actively listen and understand what they want to accomplish and help make that happen. My experience helps my clients competitively price their property, negotiate contracts, have clear expectations of the buying/selling process, and manage the ups and downs of a transaction to result in a successful closing. Much easier said than done today!
I began my real estate career after working in the fashion industry in Los Angeles and Denver, for a multi-national advertising agency in Chicago and London, as an office manager for a USAID Engineering Office in Peshawar, Pakistan, and then marketing for CROAKIES in Jackson Hole. Upon settling in Livingston with my husband, an Architect, a career in Real Estate provided a way to utilize my marketing skills and a shared love of Architecture and design. Plus, there aren't many places more beautiful for selling property than Southwest Montana at the border of Yellowstone National Park!
When not working I enjoy traveling, hiking, floating the river, touring the area, and relaxing at home. I have served as past President of the Livingston Chamber of Commerce, Livingston Rotary Club, Stafford Animal Shelter BOD, and VP of the Park County Board of Realtors.
