Who Am I?
I am a full service enthusiastic agent that holds customer service, honesty, and integrity as my highest priorities. The real estate business and my clients are my full job and passion. I work around the clock to make the home buying and selling process as smooth and enjoyable as possible for my clients. My job is not to tell you, but to guide you through one the biggest decisions in your lifetime by presenting the options and discussing what is best for your particular situation. I take pride going extra mile to do what is in my client’s best interest.
Why Real Estate?
There are 2 main reasons – the love of real estate and the desire to provide the best possible service as a business owner. I’ve always had a passion for real estate & interior design from a young age – if you sat me in front of a pile of floor plans I would be entertained for hours! The desire to be a business owner comes from my Oma (Grandma) whom was a single mom of 5 and still had the drive to become a wildly successful Realtor. I admired so greatly and she was always my biggest supporter – I vowed to make her proud and follow in her footsteps.
How I Took the Plunge into Real Estate
I started working for a large property management firm in Madison which allowed me to become very familiar with the local market and the many areas of Madison and it’s surrounding communities. With the experience and knowledge I gained during this time, I made the big leap into self-employment and became a licensed Realtor in 2012. It was the scariest decision I’ve made in my life, but also by far the best decision I’ve made in my life.
What Do I Do Outside of Real Estate?
I am so grateful that my schedule also allows me the freedom to pursue some of my other passions in life. Since 2014 I have been volunteering weekly as a Wildlife Caretaker at the Dane County Wildlife Center. I am proud to say a portion of every real estate transaction I do gets donated to the shelter to help with rehabilitation so the animals can be returned to their natural habitat. I also strive to do at least 2 fundraising events throughout the year to benefit charitable organizations.
