Buying and selling property takes time, effort and care. I know—because I’ve been helping people with all aspects of real estate investment since 1985. I have worked with hundreds of people over the years, and am proud of my excellent reputation and ability to bring Buyers and Sellers together. Having listed, sold and walked countless properties, my knowledge of the real estate inventory is extensive. I know the hills and homes firsthand and can match your dream with reality. I am dedicated to providing you with a positive real estate experience and guiding you in your discovery of the Methow Valley.  My experience helps me to successfully negotiate a transaction, offer knowledgeable and professional advice and avoid common real estate pitfalls.

I look forward to many more years bringing Buyers and Sellers together. I am excited to spend time with you and help you meet your real estate goals and invest in your mountain lifestyle.

I moved to the Methow in 1983 to spend the winter skiing after graduating the previous year from the University of Washington with a degree in Land Use Planning. After a brief position at the Okanogan County Planning Department developed into a State Grant, I extended my winter sojourn into the summer and fall. I fell in love with the Methow Valley’s mountain lifestyle and its community and never left.   The following year a friend and I created Methow Valley Central Reservations. We began managing cabin rentals and affiliated with Winthrop Realty in 1985. The exposure to Valley visitors led me to real estate sales. Real estate for me is the perfect combination of exploring the beautiful Methow Valley and my education and work experience in land use planning. I have been in real estate sales ever since and enjoy it a great deal.

After building a home in Mazama and living there for 14 years, my husband, Peter, and I traded in our alpine abode for a farmhouse with acreage on Lower Bear Creek south of Winthrop.  I feel very fortunate to make this beautiful valley our home. We have two grown daughters. As a family we enjoyed the many alpine and year round recreational activities the Methow Valley has to offer.  I enjoy exploring our Valley trails and mountains on foot, with alpine and nordic skis and on bicycles. I also love spending time in my garden.  I look forward to sharing my knowledge and enthusiasm for the Methow Valley with you.
