At 19 years old I got my real estate license as I wanted to follow in my father’s footsteps as a Broker and investor. Because I was attending college out of state, I was only able to sell real estate during the summers which I very much enjoyed. I graduated from college with a double major: Business Administration and Home Economics with an emphasis in Design.
I relocated permanently to San Diego. I worked as an Escrow Assistant for just over 4 years which gave me a huge understanding of the escrow side of a transaction. I was recruited by a Mortgage Broker that I dealt with during my escrow career as they were going to train me to become a loan officer and required me to get my California Real Estate license, which I did. The market changed and they went out of business but I kept my California Real Estate License active. I then worked for a Computer Market Research Company as an Executive Assistant for various VP’s and was Supervised 11 assistants within the Company for 5 years before relocating to back to Brookings, Oregon.
I reactivated my Oregon Real Estate license and have worked at Century 21 Agate Realty as a Broker since 1999 and as a Principal Broker since 2001. After my 1st year back in the business, I started receiving honors as a Top Producer in the office, area and Century 21 regional territory every year since. Since ’01, I have been a Principal Broker and manage the agents in my office daily.
I have been licensed in California since 1994 as a Sales Associate but most active in past 5 years. In past three or four years with number of foreclosures increasing and being the listing agent for the majority of the area foreclosures, I have been a top agent in that market as well.
I am a hard worker and very knowledgeable about the markets I work in which is appreciated by my clients. With my background as an Escrow Asst, Loan Officer Asst and Supervisor, I have a complete understanding of the real estate transaction process and anticipated issues that can arise in a transaction. I am always seeking to educate myself on industry changes, new laws and new technology to make me a better agent.
In both States I have listed hundreds of REO properties for Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Lenders Asset Management, Atlas REO Services, First Preston, and Ocwen Loan Servicing, Phoenix Asset Management and local Credit Union.
I think it is very important for Buyers and Sellers to find an agent that they can trust, that is very knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate and can refer to the experts when one is needed, that works full time in the business, that will adjust to industry and market changes, that is compassionate about their job and will work hard for their client. These combinations of attributes help make the real estate sales experience successful for everyone involved.
