They often say that good things come to those who wait. While it doesn't feel like I have been waiting around for something amazing to happen in my life, it does feel like the wait is finally over! My passion for walking alongside individuals and families as they navigate the real estate process is truly an honor and one that I take very seriously. Growing up a farm girl from Dyersville, IA, I learned my lessons on hard work early on. Being 1 of 5 daughters to a dairy cow and hog farmer doesn't leave much room for the boys to do the dirty work! Work ethic, determination, compassion, and being one part competitive, has landed me exactly where I was meant to be as a full-time Realtor. My husband Jeff and I have two beautiful daughters and we so enjoy living in the Corridor. My husband says if we are going to live in Iowa, there is no place better than close to the Hawkeyes!
Licensed in Iowa, my real estate career began in 2012 as a part-time agent while also working fulltime as a professional business development director at a human resources consulting firm. Deciding to move out of corporate America and into a full-time realtor has allowed me so many wonderful opportunities. But most importantly, it has allowed me to walk with so many more people through the sometimes scary process of buying and selling a home. By living in the Corridor, I enjoy the unique opportunity to help clients from Cedar Rapids, Iowa City and so many of our neighboring small rural communities as a member of both the Cedar Rapids and Iowa City Board of Realtors. Additionally, I am a member of the National Association of Realtors (NAR). Due to my corporate background, I work closely with the local businesses offering relocation services to assist people with listing their home and earn the privilege of welcoming new people to our area. My husband and I have been teaching Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University courses for over 10 years and I work so hard to educate people on the entire real estate transaction with the hopes of allowing you to make sound decisions around real estate for you and your family. Staying active in all areas of real estate such as new construction, relocation and existing home sales has allowed me to expand my knowledge and provide real-time real estate advice for my clients. Having said that, one thing I know for sure in real estate is that every single transaction will be different which allows me to be constantly learning, growing and forging incredible relationships along the way.
If I had to list my very favorite things in no particular order it would go something like this: being a Mama to my girls, a wife to Jeff, my puppy Moe, Mumford and Sons, yoga, chips and salsa, traveling, hiking on a crisp fall day, homemade gluten-free apple pie, earning your business, your referrals, providing exceptional service and creating incredible friendships with each person I meet along the way. Thank you for stopping by my website and I look forward to the opportunity to help and partner with you for any of your real estate needs.
