Owner / Associate Broker
Top 1% Realtor® in Canada, 2006
Before we work together you would probably like to know something about me. With my two girls pursuing their respective careers in the Okanagan and California, I now pursue my three other passions in life: golf, guitar and real estate.
Yes, real estate really is a passion for me. I have been involved in all aspects of it for over 38 years now and I still love it. Since graduating with a Commerce degree from University of Alberta in 1977, I spent 5 years as a commercial REALTOR in Edmonton, followed by 10 years of commercial real estate acquisitions and dispositions in Phoenix Arizona. In 1991, I returned to Invermere, my childhood summer home, where I have focused on residential real estate for the past 25 years.
Throughout my career I have invested in all aspects of real estate including developing a shopping centre, building spec homes and buying land and buildings for long term investments. I have had the opportunity to work with a wide-range of clients, matching properties to families, passionate entrepreneurs like Kicking Horse Coffee, and even some of my hockey heroes.
While in Invermere, I started the Royal LePage Rockies West Realty firm which grew from 2 people to 20 in the course of 12 years. Along the way I achieved a goal that most would say was impossible: I produced a large enough volume of sales to become listed in the top 1% for Royal LePage nationally in 2006. In 2007, I sold the company and went to work for Coldwell Banker Windermere Valley Realty in 2009 and ultimately bought that company in 2012. With it just being my sole proprietor business I have more time to pursue my passions and provide more personalized service for my many clients. I hope that you can become one of them in the near future.
Looking forward to meeting you!
Realtor® / Buyers Agent
In the past 15 years that my husband and I have lived in Invermere and in my 10 years of real estate, I have gotten to know many wonderful people. In any industry, but especially real estate, success depends largely on building and maintaining strong, open and trusting relationships. And that is exactly why I am a Realtor®... I’m in this for you!
My involvement in residential construction, interior design and home staging is a key asset in helping people see the hidden potential of a place and how a property can go from feeling like just another house to your very own home.
As a Buying Specialist, I mainly focus my expertise towards helping my clients work out their ideal “wish list”, discuss their realistic long term budget, share in an interactive and customized property search, provide all the details needed to make an informed decision and finally walk them through the actual negotiating and buying process.
Buying a home is one of the most important decisions you will ever make and I look forward to being a part of it, making it a positive and memorable experience all around.
Now let’s find your next home!
