Sharing the Heart in Home & Community
I grew up in a family that designed and built homes. My mother always had a truly special talent for creating beautiful spaces. From a very early age, I was designing little rooms and floor plans. It’s funny sometimes to look back and realize that there wasn’t ever a more obvious career path. One of the best parts of my job today is seeing the potential in a space. It’s one of the reasons why I love working with buyers.
The theme started early. After I graduated from college, I began working in communications/public relations. I began working with low-income and homeless populations, sharing stories that supported nonprofit fundraising efforts to help people who needed transitional housing. There’s not many things more important than having a safe home.
I grew up in Whatcom County but spent time in three other major metropolitan areas before moving back to Bellingham in 2013, which gives me a unique perspective. I truly love and understand this area. Because I’ve lived in other places and have come ‘home’ to Bellingham, I really enjoy helping people relocate here.
We are so incredibly lucky to live here. I consider it a great honor to share this community with others.
Above and Beyond Marketing
I’m confident that my 15 years of marketing experience has given me an unmatched set of skills in Whatcom County's real estate industry.
I’ve managed photoshoots for national consumer brands, I’ve been a publicist for commercial real estate companies and tourist attractions in NYC, I’ve helped market and grow physician practices, and I’ve served as a media relations manager for a state environmental agency. I bring all of this to my practice of real estate.
How? My job has always been to get eyes on the cause or product—whatever that may be. And maximizing exposure translates into the highest selling price for your home. I know how to prepare a home to show, and how to promote a listing. I hire only the best photographers, and attend every photoshoot (often times multiple photoshoots) to ensure exceptional presentation. I understand how to promote on a local and national scale. I love digital marketing. My goal is to get the most eyes possible on your beautifully presented listing, and ultimately, to maximize the financial return of selling of your property.
In 2017, I was nationally recognized for above and beyond service and marketing. I serve on the Coldwell Banker Bain Regional Broker Council. I’m a Certified Luxury Marketing Specialist and a Coldwell Banker Global Luxury Property Specialist.
