Hello, and thank you for checking out my About page.
I am a Boutique Broker with several well-defined specializations that are based on my professional and personal knowledge, experience and passion.
Are you looking to buy or sell a unique property?
I am a Mid-Century Modern, Architectural & Historic properties specialist.
I am an architectural enthusiast with a background in historic preservation & home restoration. I have a proven marketing plan for these distinctive homes & have sold them for up to 15% higher prices than other agents in the area.
I have owned and renovated 7 historic properties, so I understand old home construction, building materials and potential challenges. The oldest was a 1908 Craftsman Bungalow in Los Angeles that was featured in Gustav Stickley’s Craftsman magazine, written up in American Bungalow magazine and highlighted on Curbed LA when we sold it. The youngest was a Mid-Century Modern ranch in the Mountain Park neighborhood of El Paso, TX, nestled in the high desert mountains along the US/Mexico border. I currently live in an architect-designed MCM ranch in Fox Point, WI that was featured in Atomic Ranch Magazine.
Are you looking to buy or sell a waterfront property?
I am a Waterfront & Lake Home Specialist.
Not only am I credentialed as a Resort, Vacation, and Second Property specialist, I also own an historic cottage on the shores of Lake Michigan, which I rent out on VRBO. I am knowledgeable about the major lakes within a 2-hour drive of Chicago, 1031 exchanges, the benefits and liabilities of owning a vacation rental, FEMA flood insurance… and more.
Are you making a move to Milwaukee and/or Wisconsin? I specialize in Relocations & Long Distance Moves.
As a trailing spouse to a university professor, I am a “Serial Relocator.” We’ve lived in 6 states in the last 20 years. We’ve bought & sold in CA, IL, MD, TX, and WA and currently live in the North Shore suburbs of Milwaukee. I’m a seasoned pro when it comes to long distance moves, and I know all the ins and outs to help you sail through the process.
I used to sell real estate in SoCal, so I’m always willing to travel up to 1.5 hrs from MKE to help you buy or sell – the equivalent of my daily commute in LA. This flexibility allows me to better serve buyers who’re looking for the perfect Mid-Century Modern home, moving to WI or investing in a lake home – but aren’t quite sure which communities or lakes will best suit their needs & desired lifestyles.
