Welcome! Thanks for visiting!

Successfully navigating a real estate market is always a challenge - there are more contract forms, legal requirements and disclosures than ever before... but add a super-competitive market environment and the task becomes daunting! That's when you turn to a professional.  We are the experts who will smoothly guide you through the process of buying or selling your home.

Here's a little bit about me...


I've worked as a Realtor with Coldwell Banker in Thurston County since 1992 -  for 20+ years - but I have also been a buyer, seller, builder and investor - giving me a broad spectrum of experience to help YOU buy or sell a home.  I work hard to provide my Clients with the most positive real estate experience possible and I look forward to working with you!  *Scroll to the bottom of this page to see my current, pending and sold listings.

In addition to my real estate experience, I have also worked as:

   - General Manager of RT London, a local company that manufactures college 
      student room furniture (supplying furniture to the UW, WSU, Western and
      Stanford to name a few...)

   - Ran the business side of Hamilton Properties, a building company, for 17 years 

   - Published author, writing under the pen name Kiki Hamilton

   - Mom to an awesome daughter in her 20's now

but being a Real Estate Broker is my full-time job now and all my energy will be directed to successfully help you buy or sell your home!  I am also proud to make a contribution to St. Jude Children's Hospital every time I help a Client buy or sell a home.
