I possess 14 years of experience in real estate and I'm enthusiastically dedicated to providing my clients with the best service possible. I bring a calm professionalism to every situation and I serve as a fierce advocate during negotiations.
With my well-developed strategies, clients know that their buying or selling experience will go smoothly. Keeping their interests and goals front and center, I guide them through the entire process. I work tirelessly to earn their loyalty and I'm proud of my 5-star review score with over 40 reviews to date from Zillow and our office's client feedback survey.
I've been a Bainbridge Island resident for 17 years and am a parent and former teacher. My teaching and business background ensures that I am well organized and a skilled problem solver.
Expertise in Marketing and Education
I earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Marketing from San Francisco State University and a Masters of Education from Antioch University. Given my experience, I'm well-positioned to listen to clients' needs, develop a data-driven plan of action, and provide consistent, individualized support.
Extensive Relocation Experience
Growing up with my father in the Air Force, I relocated many times in my younger years, from Ankara, Turkey, to the Azores islands, to southern Illinois. I attended 12 schools before I graduated from high school. Moving so often exposed me to many cultures and places. My past experience informs my attentive approach to working with individuals and families who are buying or selling a home – whether they are first-time buyers, experienced movers or investors.
Passion for our Community, the Outdoors, and Education
My husband and I raised our children on Bainbridge Island and I'm highly involved in our community. For 5 years, I have served on the board of Raising Resilience, a parent education organization. In my free time, I enjoy going on outdoor adventures. I've kayaked the Queen Charlotte Islands, cycled in Switzerland, and taken countless island walks with our golden retriever. As an avid reader, I believe learning is the most exciting thing we can do.
