About Me

Personal 

Like most of us that enjoy living in North Palm Beach, I am not a native Floridian. I actually grew up in Southern California, I attended California State University Long Beach where I studied Business Administration and Accounting. After college I obtained my real estate sales license and worked selling homes in the beach area. It was natural that I would be attracted to real estate with many of my relatives in the business.  Looking for some adventure and change, I made the decision to move to Charleston, South Carolina. I became a real estate agent and then a broker selling on the barrier islands of Sullivan's Island and the Isle of Palms. After 10 years my husband and I decided to move further south and we found North Palm Beach. My husband and I have enjoyed working together in different aspects of the real estate and the home building industry over the years. My son graduated from Cardinal Newman High School in West Palm Beach and then went on to graduate from the University of North Florida in Jacksonville. My daughter lives in Southern California and is a nurse at UCLA. I enjoy the challenges that searching for that perfect home can bring and there is no greater sense of accomplishment then helping a family find that new home. I take pride in always putting my clients first.

Professional 

I am a licensed real estate broker that specializes in the REO and Short Sale industry. I am a certified REO and Short Sale agent. I am a Priorty Preferred Partner with JP Morgan Chase Bank. I have completed the short sale training program with Chase and I have been selected to assist their customers with their short sales. The process is easier to navigate with the new rules that have been implemented. If you make the decision to do a short sale, I am here to help you every step of the way. I can answer your questions and make sure you have all the necessary information to make the best decisions for you and your family. I am experienced in both marketing and selling general real estate and REO properties. My many years of experience allow me to help new home buyers as well as the seasoned investor.
