CRS, ABR, GRI, e-Pro Realtor®
I am proud to be a resident of Lawrence and a Realtor® with Stephens Real Estate. I chose Stephens because of our longstanding and strong reputation in the community. I am one of the top producing Realtors at Stephens and all of Lawrence. I am happy and grateful to acknowledge my business has grown each year since 2000 when I began my career as a Realtor.
I am a native of Wichita, Kansas and moved to Lawrence to attend the University of Kansas Social Welfare Program. I graduated with a master’s degree in Social Welfare in 1992 and specialized in medical social work.
When I moved to Lawrence, I fell in love with the older neighborhoods surrounding KU and Massachusetts Street. I have resided in Old West Lawrence, Oread, East Lawrence and Centennial Neighborhoods. The character of the older homes and proximity to downtown has always been important factors determining my quality of life.
I appreciate the opportunity to be of service. My social work skills and principles have been instrumental in my success as a Realtor. I respect and appreciate diversity in our community. I understand the importance of asking good questions and listening with the goal of understanding your needs. I provide education throughout the process while using problem solving and negotiation skills to help you get the best deal possible.
