A REALTOR® since 1986, I have proudly and successfully served the diverse real estate needs buyers and sellers of residential, 2nd home, investment and commercial properties.

REALTORS® subscribe to a Strict Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice.
Born and raised in Minnesota, then educated in the US and abroad--after college, I moved to Southern California and began my career in the world of publishing, serving as managing editor of two California real estate magazines. A desire to return to an alpine environment, much like I had enjoyed in the Swiss Alps, I transitioned to resort life in the Colorado Rockies, and that’s where my real estate career began.
My parents were some of the earliest homeowners in Sun City West; as a result I have had the opportunity to watch the community grow from the beginning. Like so many others, they first came to the area as “snowbirds” in the late 1970’s, then eventually called it home. At the age of 98, my Father was still active, living at home and enjoying his Sun City West lifestyle. I relocated to be near him, until his passing in 2014.
I bring to my clients an extensive knowledge of real estate conveyance in the US and around the World. I am a “Certified Residential Specialist”, a “Certified International Property Specialist”, a “Graduate of the REALTOR® Institute” and a “Resort & Second Home Specialist.” I hold the Colorado MRE – “Master of Real Estate” and I am NAR “ePro” technology certified. Additionally, through ICREA - International Consortium of Real Estate Associations, I am member of a global network of TRC – Transnational Referral Certified real estate practitioners.
The building of relationships is the key to my success in the real estate industry. Relationships take time to build, energy to grow and commitment to sustain. When you choose to work with me, you will know that you are working with an agent who offers you the knowledge and experience that only comes with years serving the real estate needs of buyers and sellers.
I welcome the opportunity to work with you, and hope that you will contact me soon.
