I am an Associate Broker, Top Producer Realtor® and a lifetime member of the Boise Regional Realtors' Circle of Excellence. Certifications include SRES, SFR, CDPE and GRI. Prior to choosing real estate as my profession, I was the President/CEO of seven United Colors of Benetton franchises in Boise, Coeur d 'Alene, Idaho Falls, Seattle and Spokane. My staff consistently won sales awards within the company during my decade tenure. I then became the Sales Manager at ExecuTrain of Boise, a computer training company where my team created new volume nearly equal to that of the greater Salt Lake City area. I am proud to be associated with Group One Sotheby's International Realty, known for hiring top agents and providing white glove service. My background has proved to be invaluable in identifying, coordinating and negotiating pertinent resources to protect my client's best interests. While buying or selling real estate can be a stressful endeavor, I believe in making it as enjoyable as possible. In tune with my passion for life, I take a fun approach to providing the highest level of service. I majored in Business Management at Hood College in Frederick, MD and have lived in Boise since 1984, where I raised two sons. In my spare time, my husband and I enjoy all of the wonderful things Idaho has to offer, from hiking and biking to skiing, fishing and golfing. We love to travel and cook, and can be found any given weekend sharing great wines with dear friends.
