I received my Hawaii real estate license in 1979, working for many years with Conley Dew Realty 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 in the Graduate Realtor Institute, Seniors Real Estate Specialist, and Certified Residential Specialist.
The relationship with my clients is #1 for me. We work as a team to achieve their goals. We share the joys, laughs, sadnesses, 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!
It is a balance of strength with grace, courage with compassion. 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.
