A successful real estate transaction is the culmination of a process, with lots of different players and moving parts. I’m here to help home buyers and sellers strategically navigate the Sandpoint area’s real estate scene, but I’m all about having some fun along the way -- sharing my love of community and all the area has to offer.
Focused on achieving positive results
Although it was the amazing natural beauty that first attracted me to Sandpoint in 1990, it was the friendly, community-minded people I met who made me want to stay. After making annual visits for a couple of decades, my dream of living here came to be. Now, I enjoy helping others realize the exceptional quality of life North Idaho offers.
As a full-time agent, helping clients navigate the process of buying and selling real estate is a responsibility I take seriously. Always keeping their interests at the forefront is “a given.” Good communication is key to our success, so I’m concentrated on careful listening, following through, and keeping you informed every step of the way. I value knowledge, hard work and integrity, and these qualities are at the heart of my approach to customer service.
From start to finish, I’m dedicated to achieving positive outcomes for those who place their confidence in me. Whether you’re exploring the Sandpoint area as a place to live or you have deep roots in North Idaho, I’d like to get acquainted and help you achieve your real estate goals.
As a young professional, my real estate career began as a residential appraiser in suburban Chicago. My love for the American West drew me from Illinois to Salt Lake City, where I “switched gears” and put my college degree in communication and business to use.
In Salt Lake City, I had a blast working in marketing for a dynamic entertainment company, promoting concerts and Broadway touring productions throughout North America. I transitioned to management at an NPR affiliate public radio station, where, for 10+ years, I thoroughly enjoyed interacting with talented people and connecting with the community. From there, I had the good fortune to serve as the Natural History Museum of Utah’s Development Director during the organization’s transition to its new home – a $100+ million world-class science center.
Having long ago fallen in love with Sandpoint, I knew I wanted to raise my son in its easy-going, small town atmosphere. I left my good job in Salt Lake, sold my house, and moved into a log home outside of town. I haven’t looked back.
After taking some time to focus on family, I returned to real estate – this time on the sales side. I enjoy putting my knowledge and experience to work helping people achieve their real estate goals. My years in the non-profit sector have influenced my business values, and I make it a point to support causes that make the Sandpoint community a better place to live.
