When I made the career transition from nursing to real estate in 1985, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to combine my love of working with people with my passion for the pacific northwest. I was born in Oregon, and I moved to Seattle in 1967. I could never imagine living anywhere else.
Since 1985, I have been a member of the Windermere Wall Street Inc. real estate team. As your Real Estate Agent, I will provide you with decades of real estate expertise and Seattle community knowledge. Through diligent work, skillful negotiations and a sense of humor, I will strive to help you find the perfect new home or sell your current home.
My clients have truly had a great impact on me. The relationships I have built over the years are extremely valuable to me, not only a professional level, but on a personal level. Whenever possible I try to let clients know how much they mean to me. My sponsorship of the national champion women's ultimate frisbee team, Seattle Riot, is one example of this. Several clients of mine compete on Riot and it was a pleasure to help them on their road to nationals. I also sponsor the Market Street Cycling bicycle club. A few club members are clients of mine, and I was inspired by their club's commitment to helping disadvantaged youth learn to love cycling.
Although I am completely devoted to my real estate clients, I am equally passionate about giving back to the community. I have been very lucky in my life and I thoroughly enjoy helping others when I can. Whether I am volunteering as a nurse at a neighborhood clinic, supporting The Windermere Foundation or the Plymouth Housing Project, I strive to contribute to the community.
I am an attorney and real estate broker who joined the Fordyce Team in 2007. After several years of public service law and law school teaching, I was looking for a family-friendly career that would allow me to serve clients and share my love of Seattle. I had so much fun working with Mary Ann when she helped us buy our Ballard house, I knew I wanted to learn the art of real estate by working with her. I believe that a good real estate agent shares many traits with a good lawyer: she carefully listens to her client, gets a clear sense of the client’s goals, and then tries to accomplish those goals through dedication, effective communication, creativity, and the highest ethical standards.
When I’m not working or exploring Seattle neighborhoods, I enjoy hiking and camping with my family or The Mountaineers, geocaching, and volunteering.
