Everyone has a story.  It’s fluid and evolving but sometimes you can see the plot right from the beginning.  And so it was with me building a career in real estate.  Growing up reading the housing section of the paper I started my “study” of the real estate market at a young age.  Intrigued by the benefits of owning real estate, I purchased my first home when I was 23 and leveraged myself by taking on a roommate.   I still say buying that house was best purchase I ever made as I was nearly able to pay off law school when I later sold the home.

I’m happy now to be in a position to be able to use my experience, knowledge and enthusiasm to help others make their own smart move in the real estate market – whether it is the purchase of that first home, relocating, gaining space for a growing family, selling the empty nest to buy a cozy condo or the strategic pursuit of investment properties.

As a lawyer I developed a keen attention to detail while maintaining the 30,000 foot view so not to lose sight of the forest through the trees.  What this means in my real estate practice is that I’ve got my eye on the details so you get the result you are looking for without the worry. With 13 years of legal experience, including 7 years of managing complex civil litigation and endless hours of negotiations, I am accustomed to striving for and meeting high expectations.  I am committed to professionalism, quality, high ethical standards and excellent service.  This is why I joined Fazendin Realtors® and this is why I believe I am the Realtor® you’ll want in your corner going the extra mile to ensure the best possible result in your real estate transaction, whether as a seller or a buyer.

As a wife, mother of three busy children, and active Wayzata resident, I am truly enjoying the current chapter in my story.   Besides enjoying time with my family I like to cook, read, travel and exercise in my free time.

Contact me to discuss how I can put my experience, commitment and enthusiasm to work for you. I am eager to help you find where the next chapter of your story begins.
