I have been assisting my clients with their real estate needs for 34 years. I graduated from Western Michigan Univeristy with a BS Degree in business and realize that real estate, and helping people with the most important purchase of their life was what I wanted to do. Real Estate is my passion.
I am very lucky to live and work at Lake of the Ozarks. It is a blessing to live in a location that most people can only vacation. I would love to share the dream of Lake of the Ozarks with you.
Begin each day with enthusiasm focusing on “Customer Centered” relationships. Strive to provide clients extraordinary attention to detail and responsiveness to serve as their advocate, negotiator, counselor and knowledgeable advisor. My desire is to create lifelong relationships while exhibiting honesty in my personal and professional interactions.
