I received my Hawaii real estate license in 1979, working for many years with Conley Dew Limited on Oahu. I was a top producer on a consistent basis, especially the top listor for many years in a row.
In the mid-1990's I chose to stay home to raise and homeschool my three children. I returned to real estate in 2010 and hold designations and certifications in the Graduate Realtor Institute, Seniors Real Estate Specialist, Certified Residential Specialist, Certified Negotiation Expert, and Real Estate Negotiation Expert.
The relationship with my clients is #1 for me. We work as a team to achieve their goals. We share the joys, laughs, sadness, and challenges along the way together. I handle the process and provide information and options; they make the decisions. There are never two days alike in real estate, so one simply cannot get bored!
I also devote lots of time and resources to continual education, training, and personal development.
I am involved with my church, First Presbyterian at Koolau, and enjoy reading, gardening, biking, travel, and going "out of the box." I have been married to "Putter" since 1984 and we have three super kids born in 1986, 1988, and 1995. We live in Kailua on the Windward side of Oahu where I have a home office with three dogs at my side.
Prior to real estate, I worked in a famous showroom in Waikiki and taught elementary school at a few major private schools on Oahu. I was born and raised in Hanover, PA and graduated from college at Millersville State.
