My main resource website is where buyers can link to search all MLS listings at my Windermere powered real estate search site, I’m an entrepreneur at heart. I have owned and operated businesses since 1996. I moved from California to the Coeur d'Alene area in 2006 with my family, my amazing three kids, all now grown, and I have never looked back. I have found my happy place here in CdA. Originally, I grew up in California but made a conscious decision to pursue a slower pace with more outdoor activities in a family friendly atmosphere. I truly love where I live and am happy to share with others. 

Lastly, my favorite client review is, "5 star service every step of the way." This is a jewel in my crown, it is now part of my mission, and my committment to all of my clients. 5 Star Service Every Step of the Way is what you can expect in working with me.

Please reach out and let me know how I can help you. I would be honored if you'd allow me to help you find your happy place!  

All the Best,
