A little more about me
When you are buying or selling property in today's real estate market, it's important to have confidence and trust in your real estate professional. My commitment as your local REALTOR® is to provide you with the specialized real estate service you deserve. I have lived in Southeast Alaska most of my life. I've seen our real estate market decline, and I've been working in the industry through the phenomenal growth of the last several years.
My family first came to Juneau in 1941. They did not stay too long, but we kept coming back. My parents moved here permanently in the early 1970s. Almost everyone else is gone now, but I have remained with my husband and two boys. Juneau is our home, and we love Southeast Alaska.
Recreational opportunities in this area are really what keeps us here. Fishing is a large part of our recreational lives, and business too. My husband and his father previously operated several charter boats, the Popeye. We love to fish, especially during the Golden North Salmon Derby. Our boat has brought in many scholarship fish for that event, and a few fish that won prizes too. I placed 24th in 2003, 97th in 2004, and in the last hour of the 3-day event in 2005, I caught the largest fish for 1st place! Then in 2007, I caught the largest coho in the derby. Other recreational activities our family enjoys include hiking, kayaking, camping, and hunting. When the sun comes out, which I assure you it does on occasion, there is no place in the world more beautiful than Alaska.
As a local area expert with knowledge of the communities and remote areas of Southeast Alaska, my objective is to work diligently to assist you in meeting your real estate goals. These can include homes, condominiums, land, recreational properties, multi-family investment properties, and commercial opportunities.
When you are an informed buyer or seller, you'll make the best decisions for the most important purchase or sale in your lifetime. That's why my goal is to keep you informed on trends in the marketplace using the latest statistics in our local areas. With property values continuing to rise, real estate is a sound investment for now and for the future. Historically, for the long term, real estate has always been one of the best investments around. If you are considering buying or selling a home or would just like to have additional information about real estate in your area, please don't hesitate to call or e-mail me.
Real estate is my career. This is what I do, full-time.
