I have been so fortunate to be active in my community and serve on committees with so many friends. The opportunities have been so rewarding, getting to meet new people and learn new things. I truly enjoy helping others find their new home, whether if it's in Oregon or out of state.

I hope to share that experience by helping you and your family with your real estate needs.
