I was originally licensed as a real estate agent in the early 2000's, and for a while I had both a real estate license and a private investigator license. Prior to moving to Washington in 1983, I lived in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Kentucky, Texas and Spain. I was a military dependent, and was used to relocating frequently, so the prospect of packing up and moving, as well as buying and selling homes, became natural for me. I truly enjoy helping people find their next home, and I appreciate the emotions and turmoil that are inherent in any such change. Rest assured that I will work tirelessly and competently to guide you through the process, whether it's buying or selling. A happy client makes a happy broker! I live alone with my little dog and constant companion Max, a terrier mix that I dubbed a "Schnorky-Scot-Weiner-Labra-Beagle-Corgi-Doodle!" Max and I love to go on hikes, walking around the neighborhood, and kayaking. When Max is napping, I like to read and get caught up on the news. I also volunteer as an aide for the elderly.
