As the real estate environment changes to become more competitive and innovative, so do I” Growing up in Northern California, I have seen many different aspects of a competitive real estate environment.

I’ve served my clients in real estate for over 30 years. This amazing career has seen me through raising 2 now grown kids while being married to my husband and best friend. Being born and raised in Canada I’ve found great ways to help Canadian investors invest in the market here in the Valley. I’ve specialized in the North market of the valley for over 30 years and have successfully closed more than 1000 transactions. I’m very passionate about volunteering and fund raising for the Arizona Alzheimer’s Association and have been team captain for the 2017 and 2018 walk.
