We are thrilled to be AWARD recipients from the American Institute of Real Estate Professionals FOR THE THIRD YEAR IN A ROW as one of TOP TEN agents in Washington for Exceptional and Outstanding Client Satisfaction 2019, 2020 & 2021. Our Clients' experience is paramount to us, so we cannot thank our Clients enough for this prestigious award!
I first acquired my real estate license in 2002 where I was a top producing REALTOR® in Thurston County, Washington and later in Indian Wells, California. We still hold our California real estate licenses and have found this beneficial to our Selling Clients and Buyers who are considering relocating to our area. My past transactions range in price from $50,000 raw land sales to well over $1 million estates. I am able to leverage many years of professional experience from Silicon Valley fortune 1000 companies (AT&T, NCR, and Sybase) where as vice president, I personally negotiated a multitude of multi-million dollar business partnerships and sales.
What did I do before Real Estate?
I was raised on a cattle ranch and showed horses throughout the State. I graduated from Sequim High School in 1980 and went on to graduate from the University of Washington Foster's School of Business concentrating in Information Systems and Investment Finance. I was then recruited into the technology field in Silicon Valley where I enjoyed being in the "trenches" to executive roles in marketing, engineering, sales and independent consulting. I also briefly owned a vineyard in Napa and sold the merlot and cabernet sauvignon grapes to Stags' Leap Winery.
I met my husband and business partner, Doug in 2000. Growing up, Doug's family owned a heating and air conditioning business where the Port Angeles transit station is located now. Service to his community and country were Doug's calling. He enlisted in the United States Army as a Military Police Officer (honorably discharged after 3 years tour of service). In addition, he retired from the Washington State Patrol after 25 years of service. He also had his construction license and has remodeled or built many homes.
Doug and I have been privileged to represent many Clients over the years. Our Clients' experience is PARAMOUNT to us. We work together as a team, always, with every Client. So yes, our Clients do receive a higher level of service and as our Client testimonials indicate, it's important! Bottom line, we love what we do and where we do it on the beautiful Olympic Peninsula.
Doug and I were fortunate to grow up on the Olympic Peninsula and we have seen our area "evolve" from a small farming and logging community to the amazing place we get to call "home" today. Conveniences such as Home Depot, Costco, etc. are on the far west end of our small town and yet, the main downtown area is lined with quaint shops, wine/coffee bars and restaurants. Thinking back to our younger years, it is a far cry from the single flashing traffic light and when Highway 101 was the main street through town...
The natural beauty is jaw dropping. From the majestic Olympic Mountains to our south, to the Strait of Juan de Fuca with a backdrop of the Cascade Mountains to our north. Outdoor enthusiasts love the multitude of hiking/biking trails, boating out of the John Wayne Marina in Sequim, and our Olympic Discovery Trail which when complete, will run from Port Townsend to the Pacific Ocean!
Did I mention the weather?? Sequim is called the "Blue Hole" by pilots because we are in the "rain shadow" of the Olympic Mountains meaning we see less rainfall than most northwest destinations and a lot more sunshine!
