Your Seniors Real Estate Specialist ®
Why work with
When I started working as a young Realtor, the most valuable advice I received from a very experienced agent was simply, "Listen". So simple, but so brilliant! That one word has defined my philosophy as a Realtor for decades.
Each client is unique. Each client has different needs, preferences, and goals. My job is to listen, understand, and find solutions to help my clients have a positive experience and achieve their real estate goals.
This is especially important when working with senior clients and their families. In the fast-paced world of real estate, it takes patience & awareness to customize a plan to minimize stress and coordinate a smooth transition.

Why focus on seniors and their families? As a young senior myself and the daughter of an elderly widowed parent, I am very much aware of the different needs of seniors. As a long-time Realtor, I am also very familiar with the significant ways that the real estate industry has changed since many seniors have last bought or sold a home.
In addition to seniors themselves, I have great empathy for the adult children of seniors who want to help and protect their parents. If my senior clients desire it, I am happy to include their adult children (or others they may rely on) in communications. Selling real estate in this manner takes time, patience, and attention to detail - but it is worth it!
