I have been involved in Real Estate for many years in various capacities; selling, investing (Owned & Managed personal rental properties since 1991) and managing my own firm as Managing Broker of Grand Realty Group, Inc.

I was a stay-at-home mom for our two boys for 9 years until our youngest son started first grade when I began my journey here at Grand Realty Group. I’ve worn many different hats here- currently I keep the books, run marketing for the company and work on special projects. I have a design background which I utilize with our property management clients between residents and with sellers prior to listing. I can help anywhere from selecting paint and carpet colors to entire kitchens or complete property makeovers. Outside of the office I enjoy cooking, baking, making charcuterie boards, painting, cycling, spending time outside or being with family and friends.
