*WASHINGTON GROWN* I have lived in Washington for almost my entire life and gain a greater appreciation for all that this area has to offer, each and every day. It is a beautiful place to call home. I''ve watched Seattle evolve into a major cosmopolitan city and it''s a great feeling to live and work in an area with so many real estate opportunities. For example, Seattle, each of its neighborhoods has its own distinctive characteristics. Understanding this is the cornerstone of understanding property value (location, location, location). As a real estate broker specializing in Snohomish and King County, I can provide you with helpful insights about the area, and can show you why living in the Pacific Northwest is truly something to be desired.
*COMMUNICATION* Nothing is possible without communication. It is my job to provide you with everything you need to succeed in attaining your goals. It is your job to make the final decision. It is important for me to establish a connection with my clients early on. My approach to real estate is focused around getting to know my clients as real people and taking care of them from beginning to end. I feel a strong working relationship is based on trust. I strive to keep my clients comfortable and well informed throughout the entire purchase and sale process. In the end, I want my clients to be more than satisfied.
*REAL ESTATE BACKGROUND* My understanding of excellent customer service stems from a colorful administrative real estate background. I started learning the process and terminology at the age of 17 and I have held numerous titles over the years. From Office Manager, Transaction Processor, Escrow Assistant, Commission Accountant and Real Estate Assistant, I''ve pretty much covered all parts of the transaction process. I had no idea that it would turn into a genuine passion and my full time career! Being that I''ve been active in the real estate industry for almost 15 years, you can trust that the knowledge I have gained in these positions, allows me to help navigate you through a smooth transaction, whether you are looking to rent, buy or sell. Now that I have my license, I''m ready to be your "go-to-gal" for ALL of your real estate and property management needs!
*DID YOU KNOW?* In my free time I love to travel. I enjoy long drives, camping, practicing yoga, spending time with friends and family, pinball and putting my feet in the sand. I love music, it helps me get through all of those rainy days. I flirt with the idea of being a solo musician and am currently teaching myself how to play the ukulele. I have been rollerskating since I was a kid (at one point I even did roller derby with the Jet City Roller Girls). I have always enjoyed craft projects. When I was a little girl, I got the nickname "Crafty Clift." I love to volunteer at Seattle Children''s Hospital, where you can find me in the Child Life play room with my guild, Helping Kids Be Kids, doing seasonal craft projects with the kids. I work with local business'' like Craven Farms (Snohomish, WA) to help make these events happen. They have donated pumpkins the last 3 years for our October pumpkin decorating event. Helping Kids Be Kids was also involved in Operation Family Care. Operation Family Care was 2013''s Guild Association–wide drive to collect gift cards and groceries for families in need. Our efforts helped provide the essentials for 25 + families, while they were at the hospital. Let me know if you have any fun craft ideas, or if you would like to join me at the next event. We can always use an extra set of hands!!
WHEN YOU THINK OF REAL ESTATE, THINK OF ME!
