I was raised in Logan, IA and after graduating and going to college in Omaha, NE, I moved to South Florida and worked in retail. I then became a District Manager for a shoe company and worked in Fl, New York, Atlanta, Ga, and the Carolinas. I then moved back to Iowa and met and married my husband Jim, who is from Woodbine where we currently live. We have 3 children, Boy/girl twins and a younger son. I enjoy going to all my kid's events, getting together with family and friends and volunteering in the community. I am currently the chairperson of the Woodbine Applefest-one of SW Iowa's largest one day festivals.
After being a stay at home mom for a few years and working in direct marketing, I decided to get my real estate license and I worked as an agent with Boustead Real Estate for 2 1/2 yrs and took classes during that time to get my Broker license.
One of my favorite customer service quotes: “To give real service, you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money, and that is Sincerity and Integrity.” ~Douglas Adams

Horses have been a part of life for more years than I care to disclose. I'm the State Chairman and National Delegate for Back Country Horsemen of Iowa. I'm an avid trail rider and acreage owner and with my experience can help you select to buy or sell the perfect equestrian property. Also I have managed large properties in the metro area for over 15 years and am available to help you with property management of your investment properties.

After starting my career at the age of 18 at a large financial institution, I gained my knowledge in computers and networking, I was presented with an opportunity to manage a computer store in the academic world. After 6 years of sales and service, my family was in the market for a new home and after going through the process, the real estate business looked like a new challenge that I wanted to explore! So in 2002 I took the challenge head-on and needless to say it was a great decision! I've been licensed in Iowa and Nebraska since 2002 and I specialize in residential, "short sale" and foreclosure properties. I have made many great friends along the way and it has been very rewarding!
My motto to my customers is...."Just relax...when buying or selling a home, I'll be with you every step of the way."
I have sold Real Estate for 26 years and am licensed in Iowa and Nebraska.
My husband, Jerry and I have been married for 41 years and have 3 adult children, Amber, Wendi, and Collin. We keep busy with 10 grandchildren
