About Me

I’m a Jersey girl who made her way to the West Coast via San Francisco and Marin County, and eventually heading north to Portland.  Weekend trips to the Gorge became summers in the Gorge, and you guessed it, that led to full time living in Hood River.  With its proximity to Portland and an international airport, as well as having everything a “small town” could offer, Hood River was the place to raise our family.  I have enjoyed 16 years of being a full time resident here, and have watched my kids move from elementary to middle to high school to college and beyond.


Although it’s a good day anytime in the Gorge, I confess to my favorite time being spring.  Spring is usually one of the busiest times for real estate, and it’s when I spend any non-working hours in my garden.  Hauling rock, and shoveling yards of compost, soil, and shredded bark are some of my favorite pastimes.  I am an Associate Master Gardener and love being affiliated with the Master Gardener program.


Homes and gardens have always been a passion of mine, and making yours more beautiful by staging or having a photographer take great shots of your home are ways that I can help in the selling stage.  If you are looking for your dream home in the Gorge, I can lead you to and open the door to many wonderful properties, so that you, too, can share this wonderful area.


If you would like to explore working with me, and the possibility of buying or selling a home in Hood River County or Mosier, I am available to offer you personal one-on-one help. Hopefully this website will answer questions you may have about the buying or selling process and get you started in making some very important decisions.  I look forward to hearing from you.


If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to Contact Me.
