I started investing in real estate back in 1999 and immediately fell in love with the complexity, challenge, and creativity involved with buying and selling residential properties. After a lengthy career in the pharmaceutical sales world, I left Corporate America to pursue my passion for real estate. I obtained my license in 2009, just after the market collapsed, so I have an in-depth understanding of the trials and tribulations that real estate professionals face when the market is extremely poor. Despite all of this, I was able to persevere, build a successful business, and consistently rank in the top 1% of agents in the valley. As an Associate Broker and co-owner of a boutique real estate brokerage, I live and breathe residential real estate. I have worked with clients from all walks of life and have helped numerous people buy and sell hundreds of homes, so I feel that I have a wide breadth of knowledge and well-informed opinions that I can share with the PAR leadership team. I absolutely love what I do and truly hope to secure this incredible opportunity to give back to my community of fellow REALTORS®.
