Welcome to my website. I'm a native of the Quad Cities. There are What I have to offer a Buyer:
I'm a native of the Quad Cities.
I have 2 wonderful daughters, Hannah, 18 & Sarah, 13 who give me a great reason to enjoy my life. I have 25 years experience in Human Services helping people solve their problems & improve their lives. I've been a Realtor for 15 years and love assisting people as a problem solver, being their trusted advisor & finding the "right" property for them. I derive great pleasure in seeing the excitement & smiles on their faces when their sale or purchase is completed.
I feel a responsibility as a member of my community to give back. This job allows me the opportunity to do that. I serve on the Boards of Bettendorf Community Schools Foundation, Friendy House, Rotary Club of Davenport, Jewish Federation of the Quad Cities & Temple Emanuel.
I enjoy many genres of music, golf, traveling, gardening, activities with my kids & practicing yoga.
