REALTOR & Broker Owner
I've called Missoula my home since 1983. What brought me here was the mountains, but what has kept me here is the community. Missoula offers everything I am looking for--an amazing blend of people, culture, and wilderness. About me. My background is education and for many years, I worked at The University of Montana. I have been a teacher for young children with disabilities, the owner of a toy store, and the Executive Director of an international membership organization. My work took me around the globe and gave me a chance to appreciate coming home to Missoula. Real estate has always been a passion of mine. Even before I became a licensed REALTOR, I studied the Missoula housing market, went to open houses, and never missed a Parade of Homes. I've watched our community grow and I know the character of our neighborhoods. I use what I know about Missoula to help you find your perfect home. My family. It's a busy life at my house! I have four amazing children and one very large Irish Wolfhound named Finn who can be seen walking his people around the lower Rattlesnake. I understand Missoula from the family perspective. Ask me about schools, great places to play or how to find the perfect sledding hill.
Aside from a year or two in Las Vegas, I've lived my whole life in Missoula. This community is filled with my friends and family--it's the place I call home. I am a people person and one of the things I love most about real estate is that I get to use what I know to help people find (or sell) their dream home. You can expect me to listen carefully, work hard, and be available when you need me.
A few years ago, when I bought my first home, I found out how stressful it can be. Everything from finding a lender, to filling out tons of paperwork, to looking at houses that weren't quite right. It was as stressful as it was thrilling. And when I finally got the keys to my new home, I had a feeling I wanted to do it all over again--as a real estate agent!
Every day, I study our local real estate market. I check the homes that are listed, I compare neighborhoods, and I monitor pricing. It takes a lot of time but it means that I've got all the data we will need when you are ready to sell your home or make a competitive offer.
I want your home buying and selling experience to be perfect and I'll do everything I can to make that happen!
