MY BIO ...

 

My interest in real estate started back when I was a young girl and my mother would take me to tour model homes. How I loved the architecture and decorating and all the possibilities! So it was a natural thing to buy homes and start a career as a real estate investor.

 

From this investor side sprung a Short Sale processing company. As investors, we like thinking “outside of the box” and coming up with creative solutions, so we were willing to tackle the most difficult transactions, i.e. Short Sales. It didn’t take long to discover that we had a “knack” for processing and getting our way with the banks. So with our tenacity (plus our compassion), we found our niche by helping homeowners and assisting their agents to get their short sales approved.

 

I am a native California girl – growing up in Anaheim – and after college on the east coast, have been firmly planted for the past 30 years in South Orange County (which I love!). I currently live in the Lake Forest Keys neighborhood, which is by far my favorite place (& a great place to unwind after work … floating on a boat with a glass of wine!)

 

My strengths are more administrative in nature, (I call myself the “wife of the company” … which means I do it all!) Systems and order make me happy. I love technology but it is also my curse as technology comes naturally, so I am always called on to fix things. I also love helping people discover their passion. I can be a bit anal, overly detail-oriented and sometimes my list runs my life!

 

I am happily married with 5 kids (his, hers, ours & theirs) plus I also have a very spoiled Coton de Tulear named Cooper. When I am not working (although I will admit building my business IS my hobby!), I enjoy movies, theater, “culinary adventures” and traveling. I am also a lifelong learner and admitted book & computer nerd.
