I enjoyed receiving my college associates degree from International Business College located in Fort Wayne, IN. I had majored in Accounting and minored in Business Management. I sat for the Indiana State Auditor's exam after working for a CPA firm in Warsaw for a year. I audited the state's corporation's income tax, sales tax and intangible's tax for five years, before starting a family. I ran my own interior decorating accessory business for approximately 10 years, before entering the real estate marketing and selling the enterprise. I have served as a real estate assistant, managed and operated a real estate office for three years, passed my real estate broker's exam, and have continued assisting clients full time as a real estate broker/consultant for over 16 years in Kosciusko County and surrounding counties.
Full-time experience and diversification have played a large role in the consistent listing inventory I service and represent. I am part of a select team of HUD designated listing agents in my area. I have a long background in the handling of foreclosures, short sales, and other distressed properties together with the secondary luxury lake homes our county shares. Kosciusko County lays claims to having over 100 naturally made lakes. It is a recreational area lake like no other. I have had the good fortune of growing up around the lakes and participating in water sports. Our county's strong economics affords me the privilege and opportunity to be part of a small specific group of agents who are trained to partner with nationally recognized companies relocating highly educated professionals into our community. Our relocation program is well established and has assisted in the real estate transition for many employees.
My Community Involvement
Within our community and real estate related organizations, I adamantly believe in the benefits of networking and contributing. I am serving as the Secretary/Treasurer for our local BNI Chapter and I am the current Secretary/Treasurer of our local realtor's board. Our board has been a large proponent in the regionalization of our multiple listing system in the last year. I support our local Builder's Association and Chamber of Commerce.
