REALTOR®, Management, Office Manager, Branch Manager
When it comes to residential real estate, if you've got a question, I've got an answer. As a third-generation Arizona REALTOR®, I have been training the Valley's most professional sales associates for Long Realty since 1993. I grew up surrounded by people with a passion for this industry, from my mother and grandfather to my aunts, uncles, and extended family. Real estate is in my blood!
My time spent as an administrative assistant in general real estate, new home construction and engineering prepared me for me for my ultimate career in real estate sales and management. I'll always be a salesman at heart!
Presenting solutions in my work as a Branch Manager, (mentoring New Producers) is the most fulfilling aspect of what I do. I consider my agents to be my clients. I celebrate their many successes and help them strategize when difficult situations arise. One of my particular strengths is in phrasing clauses for contracts to make them understandable, workable, and beneficial to agents and clients alike.
My real estate achievements include serving as the 1988 President of the Green Valley Association of REALTORS®, chairing the Equal Opportunity (Fair Housing) Committee for many years, and earning my Senior Residential Real Estate Specialist (SRES) designation.
While my work keeps me busy, I do enjoy spending my free time listening to music and reading. I also dabble in beading, scrapbooking, and sewing—anything that allows me to create something with my hands. Of course, my family is extremely important to me, too. I married my husband, Mike, in 1971, and we are proud parents of a bi-centennial baby, Hillary. She is an extraordinary person and my "built-in girlfriend."
Green Valley has been my home since 1976. Living here is like being on a cruise ship; one can stay as busy as one likes, or simply relax and watch other ships roll by. As the captain of my own little ship, it is an honor to serve this community with their real estate needs.
