I became interested in real estate after watching It’s a Wonderful Life years ago. When George Bailey (Jimmy Stewart) made his speech to Mr. Potter, and said:
“You, you said that they -- What'd you say just a minute ago? They had to wait and save their money before they even thought of a decent home. Wait? Wait for what?! Until their children grow up and leave them? Until they're so old and broken-down that -- You know how long it takes a workin' man to save five thousand dollars? Just remember this, Mr. Potter, that this rabble you're talking about, they do most of the working and paying and living and dying in this community. Well, is it too much to have them work and pay and live and die in a couple of decent rooms and a bath?”
This speech hit me hard. It made me realize so many things, such as my own parents hadn’t even purchased a home of their own yet despite all the years of hard work they had put in. How many other families feel like homeownership is out of reach for them? How many know the advantages to owning their own home vs. renting?
George Bailey was right, you are the ones working, paying, living, and unfortunately dying in our communities and you deserve to be able to work for something that belongs to you, a place to come home to, to raise your children in, and to feel safe in; something you have pride in and know that all your hard work wasn’t for nothing.
Since then it has been my passion to assist the people in our communities to become home owners as well as selling and investing in real estate. To many people it is still hard to save $5000 but that does not mean that they cannot purchase real estate. There are many options available no matter what your situation may be, whether you have millions in the bank or are barely getting by paycheck to paycheck. That is where I come in, my knowledge and expertise can assist you in reaching your goals whether they are home ownership, investing in real estate, or selling your current home. It would not only be my pleasure but it would be my honor to assist you in your real estate needs.

I am an active lifetime member of the Ladies Auxiliary for the VFW. I enjoy volunteering through the VFW, SPCA, Dream Society, and other organizations that assist our service men and women (Military, Police, Fire, EMT, etc), children, special needs, and animals. My husband Simon and I have four amazing children; Tessa 20, Alyssa 16, Damian 14, and Taylor 8. Our children are involved in the FFA, Science Club, Chamber Choir, and Theater.
