I grew up in Orange, California and spent most of young life as a competitive swimmer. I received a degree in International Business in 1991 from SDSU. Over 25 years ago, I relocated to the Pacific Northwest and Bellingham is now my home...and I love it. Professionally, I have been a top-performing sales executive with 2 leading System Integration companies in the Los Angeles and Seattle areas. I joined Windermere in 2001 and hold 3 realtor designations: Accredited Staging Professional, Accredited Buyers Representative and Certified Relocation Specialist with an emphasis on residential and new construction homes throughout Whatcom County. I am also appointed as a Public Member to the Disciplinary Board by the Washington State Bar Association Board of Govenors.
Whatcom County is nothing less than unique. With our picturesque backdrops (the spectacular San Juan Islands and Mt. Baker), top golf courses, endless hiking trails, parks, gorgeous lakes, boundless nature, our love for the arts, and our strong coffee culture - Whatcom County has something for everyone. To the north is Vancouver, Canada and to the south is the Emerald City of Seattle. The community takes pride in the highly rated public school system, Western Washington University, the historical preservation of Fairhaven and Bellingham and our endearing neighborhoods such as Columbia, Silver Beach, South Hill and Sunnyland.
Let me explain...rain-definitely, snow-maybe, sun-more often than you think, wind-comes with the rain, earthquakes-we have them but I haven't felt them, seasons-we get all 4, but some last longer than others. All in all, I can tell you it is not as bad as it sounds.
Experience, communication, integrity and follow through are the principals for my success and your happiness. I will guide you to take advantage of the programs and benefits to ensure that you have a seamless moving experience.
