2016 Top 3 Volume Sales Agent in Geneva National Golf Club

2015 #1 Volume Sales Leader i

n Geneva National Golf Club

Born and raised in New York, my innate sense of curiosity brought me to Wisconsin as a Marquette University college freshman.  Four years later, I continued my love affair with the Midwest as a graduate student at the University of Chicago. Seeking a lifestyle aligned with our personal values, my husband and I settled first in Powers Lake, then headed west to the Lake Geneva area where we raised our children, Emma-Catharine and Alexander.

Family time is a priority and I waited until our children were older before embarking on this challenging and rewarding career called "real estate." We've all enjoyed the natural beauty and more relaxed lifestyle the area affords us.  Each of us has run the many country roads, sailed or swam in Geneva Lake and walked its shore path.

Working with Sellers and Buyers is a privilege. My clients entrust me with  their most important and valuable assets:  their home, their property, their dreams and goals.  Having moved multiple times (albeit within Walworth County), I empathize with the stressors sellers face - and with the excitement buyers embrace in finding the right home. Having sat on all side of the closing table, I embrace mutual transparency; treating all parties fairly and honestly, and establishing a benchmark for excellent service.

As a former research scholar and writer, thoroughness and attention to details are an integral part of my skillset.  Asking questions about your goals, expectations, and past experiences allow me to establish a paradigm within which we can work towards success.

My ability to carefully listen, my responsiveness, and my negotiation skills enable me to deliver a high level of service - and it's what encourages past clients to recommend me time and time again.  Consistency of purpose:  doing the right thing at the right time and getting the job done have enabled me to achieve success as one of the Lake Geneva area's most highly regarded realtors.

Whether selling or buying, choosing the right real estate agent is one of your most important decisions. Your questions are welcome here!  Call me and let's explore the Geneva Lake Area together.
