After living in 5 states and moving 7 times in 14 years, prior to becoming a Realtor, I have empathy with anyone facing this major change in their lives! I know from experience that Iowa has a special quality of life that other states are missing. I also know that Des Moines and surrounding areas enjoy a unique combination of city, country and small town, sometimes combined. I am proud to live here and I LOVE what I do. My husband and I have built our own home, remodeled a couple, and now are enjoying townhome living. We have watched our children go out on their own and have their own families. We have our faithful golden retriever who believes he is taking their place!
My experience includes being a Project Director for new homes and townhomes, yet I am charmed by older homes and love the countryside. I have sold homes all over the Des Moines metro area since 1990, hoping to have made that challenging transition easier and even enjoyable for all concerned. I have been working with Tammy Claiborne since 2011 and we care deeply for the clients that we share. It is a privilege to work with someone that wants nothing but the best for the individuals and families we assist.
It is our task to help find the right home for you, your budget and long range plans, and/or help you meet your goals of selling your home. Selling takes special awareness of what buyers are looking for, understanding your needs, and how to use knowledge and experience, plus the special tools of Iowa Realty to get the best results, whether you are a Buyer or a Seller, or both.
My commitment to service and professionalism has led to the following designations: CRS(Certified Residential Specialist), GRI(Graduate Realtor Institute), RFC(Residential Finance Consultant), CSP (New Homes Sales Specialist). I promise to listen to understand, and use all that I have learned to help you achieve your goals. Contact me today!
