I moved to Central Oregon 20 years ago and I know the area and resources. I have a career background in medical regulatory compliance, technical writing, information services, and consulting. I began my real estate career in 2005. I understand the importance of structured language and detailed review, especially throughout the process of buying or selling a home or property. I enjoy hiking the many peaks and buttes of Central Oregon and have summited South Sister. I also enjoy cycling and have participated in Cycle Oregon events. My next adventure is The Camino in Spain (target April/May 2020). Having raised two daughters and a host of pets, I understand needs related to expanding a family home and downsizing after the kids are grown. I enjoy continuing my education and keeping my knowledge current. I have expansive knowledge in the local realty market, changes, and predictions, enabling me to provide current and updated information to my clients throughout the entire process of buying or selling their personal, vacation, investment, or commercial properties. The decision to purchase a primary or vacation home in Central Oregon might be based on the incredible recreational opportunities this part of the country offers. As a long-time resident and proud real estate representative for The Jones Group @ Sunriver Realty, I know it is more than just finding the right property: It is matching you to the right community. I realize that buying a home in Bend, Caldera Springs, Crosswater, Sisters, Sunriver, or Three Rivers South is more than just finding a place to live; it is finding a place to experience life. I have a detail-oriented approach to purchasing or selling real estate in the Central Oregon communities, offering buyers and sellers with the kind of representation that perfectly bridges everyday needs and play. The key to my success is grounded in my ability to help buyers and sellers navigate the real estate transaction processes with an understanding of how complicated it can be. I offer clarity to the relationship by keeping my clients informed about every step of the process. I also understand that each client presents their own individual needs and I am an expert at understanding and matching those requirements to the right property. I believe that my accreditations specific to the real estate industry speak volumes about my ability to help you with your purchase or sale. I believe that my passion and customer-first professionalism sets me apart from any other real estate representative you may have known. I think of myself as the neighbor you need to know.
