Welcome New Friends,
A little about myself .... I was born and raised in Mid-West Michigan (Big Rapids area) and have lived in that area and Northern Lower Michigan (Gaylord/Traverse City) all of my life. I graduated from Big Rapids High School and then attended Ferris State University in Business and Hospitality Management programs. From there I found myself in an unexpected but long and fulfilling career in management for McDonald's Restaurants for 16 years. McDonald's consistently taught me new and rewarding things not only about business but people and how to truly satisfy customers and be successful personally and professionally. I worked at every level from entry level management to 10 years at the General Manager and Area Supervisor levels.
When I made my decision to pursue new challenges professionally,in 2003,I went looking into another career I had always had a passion for and and interest in and that was real estate. Within a very short time I found my new home at CENTURY 21 with a wonderful team of people where I again consistently learn and try to improve myself and build new relationships and friendships. I believe that the more I can learn of every aspect of my job and the market area the better I can satisfy my clients and customers. Going out every day I know that it is my reputation and future on the line let alone the happiness I receive knowing that I have happy and satisfied clients/customers as well as new friends! I also hold myself to a higher standard of real estate education to further and better assist my clients. I currently hold NAR's (National Association of Realtors) Green Designation, Short Sale Foreclosure Resource certification (SFR), Accredited Buyers Representative (ABR), and Century 21 Quality Service Award winner (13 years running) - rated 97%-100%+ by my clients & customers! I also average my sellers more in average sales price than the local MLS average = more $$$ for my clients!!! I am Techonology savy and try to maintain the current trends and updates to continually give my clients top notch service and marketing your homes and properties on over 200+ websites, social media and more.
I have been a resident of the Traverse City since 2002 and I have never felt more at home. What a beautiful area to live and offers a mass of entertainment and recreational opportunities.
I hope this gives you a brief insight to me. Please feel free to contact me anytime whether you are considering buying or selling Traverse City area real estate, I look forward to hearing from and working with You!!!
