It has been a while since I have reintroduced myself to new readers, and I wanted to take this opportunity to share some of my real estate journey with you all! It’s also so good for me to pause and reflect on my story – to remember where I came from, what God has done, and what has brought me to the place I am now. I have unlocked many new doors of my own in my lifetime!
I started my realtor journey in Indiana over 26 years ago, and my real estate success has been a direct result of two components: experience and hard work. I enjoyed the experience I had of working with clients in Indiana, and after getting my feet off the ground there, we moved to Central Illinois and continued working in real estate. I love working with RE/MAX Traders Unlimited and I love the community I get to be apart of. I worked with a team for a while before going on my own, and I developed my own unique brand inside the greater brand of RE/MAX.
My husband, Jeff, and I have been married for 38 wonderful years. We have had our fair share of “opening new doors” together – having three children, three grandchildren, moving, as well as many church & business journeys! I now have a son, daughter-in-law, and three grandchildren in Indiana, a daughter in Mexico, and a daughter and son-in-law in Gridley, Illinois. All of these experiences allow me to better understand just what it means to help you “unlock new doors,” and I count it a privilege to play a role in so many of your stories as well. Each client comes to me with their own set of motivations, dreams, and interests in regards to buying or selling their home. The relationships I form with my clients along the way are so special to me, and one of the many reasons that I love what I do!
My real estate journey is one that is deeply woven into the story of my life, and I am humbled to see the ways it has grown since 1991. I want to thank each of you for the role you have played in making this a reality! Here are some of the awards and statistics I have been granted over the years:

• Top 5% of all agents in the MLS

That is a very “big picture” overview of where my real estate journey has brought me so far! I look with anticipation at what the next several years may bring as well. I want to say a big “thank you” to each of you who have been a part of my real estate experience as well! I have been blessed with the best of clients and would not be here without you. It has been a pleasure unlocking new doors with you.
