My passion for real estate started over 20 years ago while working for a mortgage company and continued when my husband and I started our own construction company in 2009. As a result, I developed an eye for a great home and can anticipate issues that may not be apparent during a home walkthrough. Whether you are a first-time home buyer or a seasoned homeowner looking to build your dream home, I can help guide you through this process.
I was born in California and moved to Hawaii where I graduated from college with a degree in Business. After I got married, my husband and I started our own construction company where we did custom residential remodels for some beautiful homes. When our fourth child was born, we decided to move closer to our family. My husband was born in Washington, IA and much of his family still lives in Kalona, so we packed up our family and our construction business and moved across the Pacific Ocean.
Since moving to Iowa we have been doing our own fixer-upper projects. We love the challenge of taking old and awkward houses (the weirder the better) and giving them a new life as beautifully updated homes. For our projects to be profitable, it made sense that the next step would be for me to get my realtor’s license -- and I am so glad I did because I really enjoy it!
My husband and I have bought and sold several of our own homes and made a couple of large moves, so I know firsthand what it is like to go through a big transition. My goal is to make your move as smooth as possible, and I would love to help you find your dream home! Please reach out to me if I can be of any assistance to you or to someone you know.
