Buyers Agent

As your buyers agent, my goal is to assist you in finding a great home, that suits your needs, at a price you can afford. We will search properties, tour properties, and write offers sellers can accept but still negotiate for the very best price and terms. I will help you through the inspection process and all the paperwork and see you safely to the closing table. Together we will do the “happy dance” when I present you with keys to your new home.

As your market expert, I am alway available to you for information on current conditions and if it is a good time to buy, sell, invest, or just hold.

Personal Story – “The reward for good work, is more work.”

Real Estate is a second career for me. The majority of my life’s work has been as an Occupational Therapist in patient care. This was excellent preparation for a second career in real estate. Although the work setting is entirely different, the core is still the same; taking care of people. Contracts, negotiations, escrows, and everything else are the ingredients of real estate, but client care is the foundation. If I take care of you, you will remember me, and all will be good.

I am a 20 year resident of Folsom, married with 3 grown kids. I enjoy family, books, travel, and still love to look at homes.
