I feel that relationships are the core of any business, and working in real estate gives me an opportunity to connect people with their greatest dreams of home ownership. My philosophy on customer service has always been to do the best I can do, even going beyond the limits of what my clients expect. I find that when I deliver service beyond expectation, the relationships that develop extend far beyond the business transaction. I derive great personal satisfaction from doing any job well, and leading my clients through their journey is a great way to start!
In addition, I hold the designation of the Graduate Realtor Institute program (GRI), which represents an additional 90 hours of Real Estate education. This allows me to more expertly assist you with your Real Estate transactions. I have also obtained additional designations, Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR), the Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE), the Owner Investor Certification Program designation (OICP), and the Luxury Home Property (LHP) Certification. In addition, I have also attained the Quality Service Certification (QSC), which shows my dedication to quality service by virtue of constant evaluation of my services from an independent survey company. All of these give me additional resources to help market homes for sale, assist buyers in relocating successfully from areas inside and outside of the Pikes Peak region, and assure you of the highest degree of service in all aspects of your real estate transaction
In my spare time, I sing in local small ensembles, opera chorus annually, and with the Colorado Springs Chorale, a group of over 140 voices. I have performed solos in a number of venues locally, and previously sang in musicals, with opera companies, and ensembles here and in California. I love to travel with my family, and I enjoy bike riding, walking my Golden Retriever, Hannah, and spending time with my husband, Malcolm and daughter, Emily. In conjunction with the Colorado Springs School, my family has hosted international students, one from Russia and one from Italy. My husband and I also have 4 grown children, 7 grandchildren and an extended family, and we enjoy family reunions here or with them wherever they are located!
