Sun City West - Long Realty West Valley Sun City West
I have been breaking boundaries in real estate for over thirty years. Born and raised in Minnesota, then educated in the U.S. and abroad, I began my career in the world of publishing, serving as managing editor of two California real estate magazines. A desire to return to the alpine environment I once called home in Europe, I transitioned to resort life in the Colorado Rockies, and that’s where my real estate career began. I've been successfully growing my business ever since.
I bring to my clients an extensive knowledge of real estate conveyance in the US and around the world. I have “above-and-beyond” knowledge of this market, as my parents were some of the earliest homeowners in Sun City West. It's no exaggeration when I say that I've watched this community grow from its humble foundation into the vibrant community it is today.
Education is essential to success in real estate. It is an ongoing process that distinguishes me as one who chooses to remain on the cutting-edge of our ever-changing industry. I hold numerous professional designations, including CRS (Certified Residential Specialist), CIPS (Certified International Property Specialist), GRI (Graduate, REALTOR® Institute), and RSPS (Resort & Second-Home Property Specialist). In addition to these NAR designations, I hold the Colorado MRE (Master of Real Estate) and I am NAR "e-Pro" technology certified. I am also a member of a global network of Transnational Referral Certified real estate practitioners through the International Consortium of Real Estate Associations. As a Realtor of the Year, as well as a National Association of REALTORS® Global Achievement Award recipient, my expertise in the field of real estate is vast and formally recognized on an international scale.
My experience as a global traveler has instilled a lifelong love of discovery in me. I've seen so much of the world that I've recently started returning to some of my favorite places to experience them all over again! When I'm not setting off on another adventure, I enjoy the arts and a variety of athletic activities, including skiing, hiking, yoga, and most recently, Pickleball.
Gregarious, energetic, detail-oriented, and diligent, I am confident that I am the most qualified REALTOR® to serve your needs. I look forward to working with you—here's to our mutual success!
