I was born and raised in a small town in Southern Illinois which, is one of the reasons Western Delaware County was such a perfect match for me and my family and where I've called "home" for the past 28 years.
After leaving Illinois, I moved to Long Island to live and work as a partner in a home improvement/construction business. I've always been a "hands on" kind of person so learning to install windows, doors, siding and doing a variety of interior work was, as they say, right up my alley as are nearly all things having to do with the great outdoors! II like to hunt, fish, camp and hike - which is how I got acquainted with Delaware County in the first place. It's a truly special place for all those things an so much, much more.
On one such visit to the Catskills we were able to find the perfect property where my young family could experience the beauty and benefits of the country life. After some years of extended weekends, holidays and summer visits to our country haven, it was plain to see that our hearts were pulling us in the direction of a permanent move. So, in 1992 we packed the kids, the pets and all our belonging and made the move to Delhi NY.
In 1993 we expanded on our dreams and incorporated a retail archery shop on our property which allowed us to work from home with the added benefit of being able to be home when the kids got off the school bus! These many years later, I can say with unabashed pride that the girls have since graduates, earned master's degrees and are raising beautiful familles of their own! It was plain to see I needed to start another new chapter of my life. I took my real estate course, passed all the tests, filled all requirements and became licensed real estate agent.
The knowledge and sills I've acquired over the years in raising a family (I know the importance of sometimes being the first one up and the last one to go to bed) along with gaining valuable experience in the building trades and running successful businesses and my sincere belief that job worth doing, is a job worth doing right, will now be applied to helping others fulfill their dreams and goals whether it's to acquire or sell a property. I also pride myself on my abilities to assess problems and finding solutions. I listen intently and carefully os that I will know what it is that's expected of me and be able to deliver on those expectations and my promises: If you select me to help with your real estate needs, you'll be getting someone who is a team player and who knows how and is fully ready to work as hard as she possible can to achieve the results that will please you. I like win/win situations. How about you?
