I am a proud graduate of Marshalltown High School, Marshalltown Community College and the University of Northern Iowa. I began working in real estate as an office manager in 1983 and became licensed in 1986. I joined Five Star Real Estate Group in December of 1993 and completed courses to receive my Graduate Realtor Institute (GRI) designation as well as my Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) designation.
WHY I'M DIFFERENT
In my years as a real estate agent, I have experienced many different market conditions having 32 years in the business. It is ever changing. As an agent, it takes planning, budgeting, preparation and the willingness to adapt to the constant changes in the market. As a native of Marshalltown, I am very passionate about the growth and image of our community. I believe home ownership is a key aspect of that.
I BELIEVE IN GIVING BACK
I have served on many boards and committees over the years as a Realtor. Most recently, I am on the Board of Review for the City Assessors. In this position, I am able to bring a Realtor’s point of view as to how conditions affect property values. I also currently serve on the Marshall County Relay for Life Committee which holds a very special place in my heart, having lost someone very important to me to cancer. I volunteer at church, for the Marshalltown Police Department, the school district, and as Treasurer of the Mid Iowa Regional Board of Realtors.
IN MY FREE TIME
I love spending time with my family. I have two daughters and we enjoy spending a lot of time together. My siblings and I and our spouses are very close, as well as my nieces and nephews. Our family gathers often! I am very blessed to have a close knit family! I enjoy walking our two dogs, weather permitting, utilizing our walking paths and bike trails. I enjoy golf and being outside as much as possible. I am also a lover of home projects to spruce things up or just make a change.
