I got into real estate just to be able to sell my house, buy a new residence, and some investment properties.  However, during the licensing process I really fell in love with the idea of helping others buy and sell their homes! I know how scary and frustrating buying and selling can be. I struggled to find a Realtor I could trust and believed had my best interest at heart, which was so disheartening. I love working with people and being someone they can trust and rely on.

I decided to join Brick & Banister Real Estate Co. because they truly care about their clients and doing what is right for each individual one. My life has been dedicated to helping others so finding a brokerage that had the same values was key for me on this journey!

I am a mother of 3 and a living kidney donor to a once complete stranger who is now someone I consider to be one of my very best friends! When I am not helping clients in real estate, you can find me on stages all over the world spreading an uplifting message about Living Organ Donation and the power of Hope and Faith even in the most difficult circumstances. I am also in the process of publishing my first book.

I am passionate about making a positive impact in this world and that shines through everything I do! 

If I could live anywhere in the world it would be in a modern home in Costa Rica overlooking the ocean. I was born and raised in Minnesota, but my heart is by the ocean. When I retire, I plan to make that dream a reality! Until then, I plan to help as many people as I can find their dream homes right here in the state I love so much.

Whether you’re a homeowner needing to sell, a first-time homebuyer, or an investor, it would be my joy to help you in your next real estate adventure!
