Office Manager/Supervising Principal Broker
I've lived in the Port Orford area most of my life, with the exception of the university years and a little traveling. I returned to raise my children in what I considered a healthy environment - one where they could feel free to explore the natural wonders of the world as I had. We are contented living in this small, sea village with the outdoors at our fingertips. In trying to juggle work and family here, I discovered the real estate industry and decided to explore it as a career. My natural admiration for this area, incorporated with a desire to learn the industry has kept me involved in real estate for over 25 years. It is a changing industry and I've had the privilege to witness quite a few of the changes. Mobile technology has had the largest impact on our industry, an area that has pushed Port Orford into full visibility. With DSL and the internet, our client base is now world-wide. This fact alone motivated me to begin the CIPS (Certified International Property Specialists) program - a program that broadens ones knowledge of world-wide real estate practices and regulations. I became the Principle Broker of 'Neath The Wind Realty, inc in 2004, garnering a small contingency of excellent agents. Our commitment to professional real estate activity has provided a rewarding experience for our clients, and ourselves as well. Our office provides a warm, local environment, filled with local art, news, maps and information. In closing I have to admit that I have always wondered - who wouldn't want to live here?
A graduate of Pacific High School in 2008, I left Port Orford for college, first at Lane Community College in Eugene, Oregon; then at Southwestern Oregon Community College in Coos Bay, Oregon. While I was finishing my Associate Degree I decided to try my hand at the culinary arts so I enrolled in the Oregon Culinary Arts School there on the SWOCC campus. After a very busy year (2010) I graduated with my AA and a Culinary Arts degree. I decided to come home and complete my externship in the culinary arts at Paula's Bistro. While home I contemplated careers. I love food and cooking but I also enjoy interacting with people. If I was going to stay in the Port Orford area, I could tell I would need to be as versatile as possible. So, I embarked on my Real Estate career. This has been an exciting step. I enjoy talking with people that stop in the office and I am learning more than expected. My hope is that I may make buying and selling an easier task for my clients. Please give me a call - I am ready to work for you.
I was born and raised in British Columbia, Canada moving to the United States when I was 20 years old. My brother and I operated a video store in Laguna Beach, CA for 20 yrs. I moved to Oregon in 1998 when I purchased and rebuilt a movie theatre in Port Orford. At this time I also went back to college to become an EMT. I volunteered for The Port Orford Ambulance as a medic for over 10 years. Operating the theatre at night allowed me to fill my days as a mail carrier for the US Postal Service for 16 years; hence I know the Port Orford area and the residents very well. Betty, was one of the first people I met when I moved to the area, and quickly became a close friend who has encouraged me to join her team in Real Estate - which is quickly becoming one of my favorite and most enjoyed careers. The challenges of finding not just a house but a home for clients who are going to settle in our quaint seaside town, or the surrounding area, is rewarding. I love to show clients the hidden treasures this town holds: treasures like the five state parks in this town, or the Elk River - which is one of the most pristine and amazing rivers in all of Oregon. When a client is selling their home it is always an honor to represent them and ensure that their homes are featured in the best possible way. Whether buying or selling your home, it would be a privilege to assist you through the process to make the transaction as efficient and easy as possible for you.
After finishing my English and Wine Tourism studies in Southern France where I am originally from, I worked as a travel agent in the Bordeaux wine region. The travelling bug then took me across South America and Europe until I decided to finally settle in Port Orford. This is when I decided to professionally reconvert myself as a realtor, and share my love for the natural wonders and warm community feel of our area. As a real estate agent, my goal is not only to represent my clients the best I can but also educate them throughout the process of buying or selling a home, armed up with top notch information and market insight. In my free time, I love exploring the beaches, rivers and mountains of our area, and do various crafts.
