I love the Olympia area. It has the bustle of the city, with the comfortable feeling of a small town. Thurston County, with its access to a diverse range of activities and cities, makes it a magnet for any personality type.
I've lived in Washington my whole life, growing up in the farmland of the Columbia Basin, where my family still lives. I moved to Spokane to attend college at Eastern Washington University, which is where my husband and I bought our first home. After about a year of DIY projects, my husband joined the US Army, and we were lucky enough to be stationed at Fort Lewis, which is when I fell in love with the area and its lush, green landscapes.
I lived in Olympia, working in a Human Resources office for 7 years, before I decided to pursue a career in real estate. I'd always been interested in design and architecture and love making a house a home. And what's more, is I love being in service positions - getting to meet new people every day, learning about them and what is important to them. I must have been a butler in another life. I'm really organized too, so I can appreciate when people feel like their home isn't compatible with their life stage. I've been there myself.
It made sense to me that I should couple my strengths in office administration and customer service with helping people get settled in homes that fit their specific lifestyles and life stages.
But buying a home can be very complex -- for most of us, it's the largest purchase of our lives. My background in Human Resources, where I specialized in training, makes me uniquely qualified in helping my clients understand the process and give them the confidence they need to make these very important decisions.
My partnership with Coldwell Banker Evergreen Olympic Realty was a natural choice -- the team had so many values I could relate to -- a high level of professionalism, superior industry knowledge, and a focus on service, lasting relationships, and giving back to the community.
I would love to put my skills and partnerships to work in helping you navigate your next real estate transaction.
