As a John L. Scott broker, my mission is transactional excellence and client satisfaction. This means that I work tirelessly to make your home buying or selling process as efficient, stress-free and lucrative for you as possible.



I take pride in offering high-caliber full-service residential real estate expertise. My clients are my top priority, and I focus on delivering the best possible results for them.



The real estate market is hyperlocal, seasonal and temperamental—in other words, it can change on a dime. Technology has made information more accessible to everyone, but it can be difficult to keep up with recent events that affect home values. The benefits of working with a licensed real estate professional go far beyond what a mobile app, online video, or website can do.

I provide my clients with information on market seasonality and information relevant to what is happening in their specific neighborhood. This customized analysis includes recent comparable sales that factor into an offer and acceptance strategy.



Successful negotiations help move a conversation forward and transform the process into an agreement that’s a win for all parties. Negotiation is not only a skill, but a mindset. I keep my clients’ best interests top of mind as I negotiate on their behalf. 


Transactional Excellence

I am dedicated to transactional excellence for every listing and sale. What this means for you is that I oversee every detail of the real estate transaction. The transaction is far from over once an offer has been accepted. I monitor inspections, appraisals, title, escrow and loan processes. Communication and collaboration with all the partners and parties involved with the transaction ensures a smooth and timely closing. I am committed to my clients before, during and after a sale.


On a Personal Note

I am an "Army brat" and a former military wife having had the opportunity to live around the United States as well as in France, Canada and Germany. But, the Greater Tacoma area has been my favorite location and my consistent home since 1978.

My husband and I are blessed with two children (now adults) who received an excellent education through the University Place School District. Locally, there are great programs for the sports minded as well as for thespians, musicians and dancers. We love that the Pacific Ocean is only an hour and a half's drive away for a day at the beach or a charter fishing boat excursion and the Cascade and Olympic Mountain Ranges are about the same distance away for summer hiking or winter sports.

I've been a full-time, licensed REALTOR with experience serving home buyers and sellers since 1998 in the Greater Tacoma / Pierce County area of Washington State including, but not limited to, DuPont, Fircrest, Gig Harbor, Lakewood, Parkland, Spanaway, Steilacoom and University Place as well as the communities of Lacey and Olympia in Northern Thurston County.

Since obtaining my real estate license and becoming a member of the National Association of REALTORS®, I've earned additional designations & certifications to help me better serve my clients:

  • Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR®)

  • Certified Residential Specialist (CRS®)

  • Military Relocation Specialist (MRP®) and VA & Military Real Estate Specialist© (VAMRES©)

  • Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES®)

This community is an excellent place to live in and I would love to share with you my enthusiasm for the many neighborhoods that encompass it. I pride myself on providing unparalleled service and look forward to developing a long-term relationship with you.

Ask me your real estate questions.
