I have been a full-time Realtor, specializing in the Skagit County area since 1986. I obtained my Associate Broker’s License (now known as “managing broker”) in 1992. Nothing replaces experience when you are searching for an agent to represent you. During my career I have earned the real estate designations of GRI (Graduate Realtor Institute), ABR (Accredited Buyer Representative) and CRS (Certified Residential Specialist).The CRS designation requires a strong educational real estate background as well as a strong real estate production background. Less than 4% of all real estate agents nationwide hold the CRS designation. I have been very active with the North Puget Sound Association of Realtors. I served as President of the board in 1996. In 1997 I won the prestigious “Realtor of the Year” award. In 1997 I received the RE/MAX Hall of Fame award. I was born and raised in the Skagit Valley so I have extensive knowledge of the area as well as the market and trends. You can count on me to provide you with excellent customer service and great attention to detail. The client’s needs and goals are always put first. I currently live in the Sedro Woolley area. When it’s time to have fun, I enjoy camping, boating, traveling and knitting.
