My career has progressed from real estate agent in the 1980’s, to corporate officer for a residential subdivision development company, to co-owner of a small business, and now real estate agent with Sereno.
Operating a successful private investigation business for 26 years requires gaining the confidence of clients (attorneys and insurance companies) and providing top-notch 24/7 service. Communication, observation, negotiation, research and diplomacy skills factored in the success of the business. While working in subdivision development I coordinated in all aspects of home building and development. In addition, I’ve continued educational classes, met state licensing requirements, and applied the knowledge and skills gained through experience and education to better advocate for my clients in my real estate business.
Today, my duty to my clients includes not only representing them to the best of my abilities, but also educating them through every step of the process to enable them to make informed decisions.
Volunteering is an important avenue for me to give back to my community. As an animal lover, I found my niche with the Benefit Shop for the Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter and I volunteer there weekly. The shop relies solely on donations and volunteers, and provides much needed funds for the open-door shelter.
Sereno and their 1% for Good program provides me with another method to give back and is one more reason for my association with this great company. Since 2012, Sereno has donated over $2.5 Million to over 190 incredible non-profit organization to positively impact the local community.
My interests include writing, reading, painting, hiking, friends, continued education, and spending time with my husband, children and grandchildren. My award-winning novel WITHOUT REASON will be published in 2022.
