MEET OUR TEAM
Having been in the real estate industry for over 20 years, I can honestly say that “I love what I do!”. So, I don’t find myself ever saying “I’m going to work!” I enjoy the steps of building long-term relationships which, I’ve created many, over the years. My strongest attribute is paying attention to detail, every detail matters to me.
I commit myself on providing high-quality service, you’ll never hear me say, “I’m available 24/7,” it’s an unrealistic statement, even though, I understand the purpose of the statement, however; I always like to be straight forward with true promises that I can deliver. So, feel free to call me seven days a week. I understand the dedication and commitment that it takes to bring together a real estate transaction. It’s my pleasure to help assist my clients and their clients like family. Giving them the attention, communication and the time they deserve, for a seamless enjoyable escrow transaction.
I love spending time with my large family and friends I enjoy cooking and taking long runs in the fresh air of Orange County. Such a beautiful place to be. And I always find a little time for HGTV and golf!
