My specialized training, business experience, and education provide me with the knowledge to help buyers and sellers succeed in their real estate goals. I’ve learned that real estate is much more than selling homes & properties. It's actually understanding the needs and desires of each individual client. It includes learning the perspectives of both the buyers and sellers and finding solutions to create Win-Win outcomes. It is being in tune with the changing market conditions and knowing how those conditions affect my clients. Its solving problems and delivering satisfaction & happiness.
I understand that there can be many concerns in a real estate transaction. Because of that, I am committed to providing quality real estate services and doing everything I can to make each transaction a pleasant, convenient, and stress-free experience.
I grew up in Clear Lake and moved to Ames to attend Iowa State University. I met my wonderful husband in college. After graduation, we chose to stay here and begin our careers and family. My husband Omar is a developer and partner at SB&A Architects in Ames. I love Iowa and all it offers-it’s been a great place to live and raise our family!
Buying our first home ignited my interest and passion for real estate, and in 1997, we purchased our first investment property. Since then, we’ve purchased and sold many properties, gaining experience in: foreclosures, house flipping, rehabbing, staging, property management, and creative financing…and much patience along the way! We’re both entrepreneurs at heart and have a couple of successful businesses that nearly run themselves. And we love connecting people with interests that they are passionate about.
Before becoming a Realtor, I was in sales & marketing with Clear Channel Radio (now iHeartRadio) for 19 years. That was a rewarding chapter of life in which I gained vast experience and connections within the business community.
I have two sons, Alex & Austin, and a daughter, Bailey, who is at ISU. Alex and his beautiful wife Gina recently graduated from ISU and reside in Des Moines. I am fortunate that our children live close. With their growing independence, I felt I was finally free to pursue my true passion for real estate and became a Realtor.
I am also passionate about the Cyclones, traveling, experiencing nature, boating, ATVing, fishing, campfires, and hosting family and friend get-togethers at our lake home. And fondly remember our kids' sporting events at both Ames & Gilbert schools. I pride myself on being a “honest, faithful person” and am devoted to my family and God. My family is the joy of my life.
I would love to put my experience and knowledge to work for you in helping you achieve your desires in real estate- whether it's buying, selling, or building the home that best suits you and your needs.
"Put My Passion to Work For You!"
I believe the Best Seat in the house is in Your Dream Home! Let's find that home together.
Thank you for reading my bio.
