I am your local area expert, having held an active Real Estate license in the state of Colorado since 1978. My three children were born here, and went from elementary school to college in the state. In this state it is not easy to be classified as a "native" but I have been here since 1965, and this is where I plan to stay. As a result, I found it very fulfilling to get involved in activities that benefit our community. I am a volunteer for the Colorado Parks and Wildlife, and an active member of the Gleneagle Sertoma Club, a service organization providing funds and support to local charities and the hearing impaired in the area. Please ask me to explain either of these activities as I am very proud to be helping in this way.
My education has been comprehensive from a degree earned from L'Université d'Aix-en-Provence, France to my undergraduate work at the University of Colorado, Boulder, and finally a Masters Degree in Business with an emphasis in Marketing from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. I am currently active with the Alumni Association at UCCS. In the Real Estate discipline, I hold a GRI designation (Graduate Realtor Institution designation), the SFR designation (Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource Certification) for distressed property expertise, The CREMS designation (Certified Residential Military Specialist) to help military relocate and the prestigious CRS (Certified Residential Specialist) designation that puts me in the top 5% of Realtors nationally.
My business experience covers many years but is primarily focused within four venues: Marketing and Sales, Customer Service, Management, and Entrepreneurship. My late husband and I were the proprietors of 2 highly successful retail businesses: Christy Sports and The Wine and Hop Shops. We operated year round and seasonal retail business outlets in large metropolitan and resort communities. After over 20 years in Real Estate, I find that my past service, organizational and entrepreneurial orientation has been a benefit to my current customers.
To round out the picture, I have a passion for fly fishing. However, there is a lot more to do in our region than fishing, so I enjoy skiing, mountain biking, tennis, hiking, and yoga. It really isn't too hard to stay in shape in this climate; We have almost 365 days of sun a year. Don't believe me? Come and see. So, as a local area expert with knowledge of the communities, my objective is to work diligently to assist you in meeting your real estate goals.
