Where the Mountains Meet the Sea

I come to Keller Williams with twenty-eight years of public school teaching experience. I am currently a coach and trainer for those seeking their real estate license. Working with new agents allows me to continue my passion as a life long learner while sharing the strategies for a successful real estate business. I have completed the First Time Buyer Specialist designation. I want to be your “Go To Agent” for property searches, loan financing and closing the transaction.

I earned my bachelors degree from UC Santa Cruz and currently live in Boulder Creek. My family has lived in Santa Cruz County for over 40 years. My goal is to find that perfect property based on your wants, needs and my detailed knowledge of the local real estate market.

Our area boasts a wide variety of settings, from beach front properties to secluded rural homes with acreage. I know that each transaction, including the financing and final offer, can be as unique as the property itself. I can guide you through the purchase or sale of your property with strict C.C. & R.s or rural acreage with septic and wells. Whether you are looking for an elegant beach front home or a peaceful mountain retreat, let me show you the best of both worlds.
