Looking is Free!

Thanks for stopping by for some house hunting!  Whether you are looking for you next dream home, or simply checking out future possibilities, I always say, "Looking is free!" Sit back, relax and check out the possibilities for your new home. When you find it give me a call and I'll do the rest.

I work with both buyers and sellers, first-timers and repeat timers, growing families and empty-nesters. No price is too small or too large. You will receive the same time, dedication and representation whether you are buying a small investment property or "your" million dollar dream home.

I have referrals for lenders, inspectors, cleaning people, lawn care....you name it and I can give you the names of quality people who do above quality work.

Happy house hunting and I look forward to helping you purchase your next property, sell your present property or both!

Personal Background

I was born and raised in Marion, IA. I graduated from Linn-Mar in 1993. From 1994 to 2003 I worked for Outback Steakhouse in Cedar Rapids, Minneapolis and Milwaukee.  After deciding I was done with restaurant management, I moved back to Marion to be closer to my family. In August 2005 I took a position at Coldwell Banker Hedges as the afternoon receptionist. It didn't take long to get bit by the real estate bug and in April 2006 I sold my first house at the first open house I ever did as a licensed REALTOR. While some agents company hop, I am loyal and dedicated to my extended family at Coldwell. I can't think of any place better than Coldwell to call home. Real estate is a feast or famine business usually and I am in it for the long haul.

I have a daughter named Olivia, a dog named Zoey, 2 guniea pigs (Patches and Tinkerbell) and we recently adopted 2 hermit crabs.

Personal Interests

My most favorite thing to do is hang out with my family. We like to go horseback riding and to the Wisconsin Dells. Every year we go to a resort in Chetek, WI for a week of fishing and camping. I like wine and trying new restaurants. As far as tried and true favorites I have to say Outback Steakhouse, Coerpers (in Milwaukee) and for the best mexican and margaritas in Cedar Rapids I have to get my fix at Casa Las Glorias.

I enjoy cooking and will attempt any recipe once. We have a rule in my house for my "experiment" night. If everyone agrees it's horrible then we order pizza!  So far I have not had to order one and there was only one dish I thought was bad.

I avidly workout at the MAC and am always looking for new ways to challenge myself. I like to read, especially psychology books. I think if I wasn't a REALTOR I would be a relationship counselor.

I love having friends and family around and the more the merrier! May my home never be big enough to hold them all!
