You might call me a bell-ringer. As a top-performing REALTOR® since 1981, I’ve rung more doorbells than I can count. As a volunteer for the Salvation Army, that’s me with the kettle and the bell. And, since the mid-1980s I’ve been ringing alarm bells to build attention and support for humanitarian relief, refugee resettlement and other critical needs.
Along the way I’ve been a foster parent and adoptive parent, mentored refugees, served meals at homeless shelters and written grants for the American Red Cross. And that’s only a few of the high points from my life in human services.
So how does this help me as a REALTOR®? Why should you hire me to help you buy or sell a home? My answer is: “Because I know how to care effectively.” My knowledge of Tucson’s many neighborhoods comes from being involved in the lives of the people who live there. And I have a strong business background from my time as a small-business owner, management-level volunteer and real estate veteran.
Evidence of my effectiveness as an agent isn’t hard to find. I’ve been honored as a Long Mortgage Top Company Performer, I’ve won Long Realty’s Samuel H. Woods Community Service award, and I’ve achieved the company’s Top 5% award. My proudest professional moment was when I received the Good Neighbor award from REALTOR®Mag, the official magazine of the National Association of REALTORS®.
I’m successful because I give every client the same effort and attention I give my humanitarian work. Because, for me, there are no boundaries in caring for people. And that’s what I do.
