My real estate story began in the mid 1980’s right here in Las Vegas. I had just turned 21 and landed a job at an Escrow company as a secretary. This became my introduction into real estate. I was promoted to an escrow officer and worked in escrow for a little over a decade. After escrow, I was recruited by one of my former employers and began assisting real estate investors defer their capital gains taxes as a 1031 exchange facilitator. Along the way friends and family continuously sought real estate advice from me. Eventually, I succumbed and enrolled in real estate school at night. Because I already had a full-time career and was raising my children, I almost forgot to go take the exam! In 2001 I was officially licensed to sell! I have also written and taught continuing education and post licensing real estate courses as an approved instructor by the Nevada Real Estate Division.

I am grateful for my family and friends, and loyal clients who have always supported me. I look forward to helping you achieve your real estate goals.
