As a top-producing REALTOR®, I enjoy educating, motivating and inspiring people to realize and accomplish their real estate goals. Part of this, of course, includes educating myself as well: I have utilized new strategies and systems by partnering with some of the best Real Estate and business coaches along the way to grow and help my clients get the most out of their real estate experience.
Before becoming a REALTOR®, I worked for KOMO TV local ABC affiliate in public relations and sales, and as an event coordinator for The Bellevue Home Show and Taste of West Seattle. Now I live, work and play in University Place— I’m most involved in the community here and I absolutely love it! I specialize in residential real estate in UP, the North End of Tacoma, Lakewood and Gig Harbor, too. I’ve lived in each of these areas, and clients can rest assured that I bring my own personal knowledge and perspective when they’re searching in those areas. I’ve helped many first-time homebuyers and move up/move down buyers find the perfect home and transition into the next step of their lives.
I was born in Tacoma but raised in South Florida, so I've seen homes from coast to coast. Through my work in Public Affairs, Public Relations, and Sales, I gained a reputation as a hard working, creative person. Well-educated, ready to take on challenges, always striving to exceed expectations: that's me! I have recently partnered with my daughter, REALTOR® Madison Lord. Madison essentially grew up surrounded by the real estate and building industry. She was in leadership with Nordstrom, and recently led a sales team in the Vancouver, BC Flagship store. She brings a fresh approach, a designer’s eye, and exceptional service standards to the team.
My style is authentic and friendly! I like to get to know people and ideally build lifelong relationships. I ultimately want people to feel like I’m a trusted family friend whom they feel comfortable being themselves around. Everyone deserves to work with people who “get” them and who respect the way they make decisions and the way they like to communicate. I strive to know my clients on that level and to provide them with the very best full scale real estate services available.
