Growing up on the island of Kauai in a family of real estate brokers, I knew one day I might join the ranks of the family business. Becoming a broker in 2005, I now have one of the most unique and varied client bases in the city- from tech workers to artists to retirees. Real estate evolves and changes every week but what remains the same is that everyone wants to be heard and my business is built on a foundation of rock-solid communication with every client.
Having a soft spot for first time buyers, I have worked with hundreds of people to align their desires and budgets to win in a competitive market as well as negotiate for the best deal in a buyer’s market. On the listing side, I maximize proceeds for my sellers by intelligently preparing homes to show them at their best. Marketing is knowing your audience and telling them a compelling story, I create a custom plan and narrative for each home.
I also believe the real estate journey can be fun and I have been nominated by clients for Seattle Magazine's Best in Client Satisfaction award each year since 2009 and have won 6 times.
I am very active in the arts community as a performer and patron- I have hosted benefits for the Henry Art Gallery, Seattle Art Museum, Velocity Dance Center and On the Boards. I am also a proud member of Agents of Change, a philanthropic guild supporting Mary's Place and their mission to empower and house homeless families in Seattle.
I own a home and garden in West Seattle and am an agent at the Windermere Mount Baker office where I have an excellent team of colleagues and executive support.
