Tri-Cities Resident for over 35 years I moved to the Tri-Cities in 1974 from Southern California and never looked back. Along with many other advantages this area has to offer, I truly enjoy the four seasons. Despite the growth we have experienced I still feel the Tri-Cities provides the benefits of a small town. Years of Experience My first experience in real estate came in 1975 when I took a secretarial job with a small real estate firm. In 1977 I received my Washington Real Estate license. I joined my first real estate company in 1995 and enjoy my working relationship with my company. It is a community oriented group of professionals, they believe in giving back to the community. My broker supports all of his agents who participate in community events. Committed to the Local Community I am very active in my community. I serve as the president of the board for Safe Harbor Crisis Nursery. I am on many boards including The Volunteer Center, 2nd Harvest and Community Development Block Grant for the City of Kennewick. I served on the board for Kennewick Housing Authority for 15 years. I was chosen Kennewick Woman of the Year in 2007, an honor I am very proud of. I am also the treasurer for the Kennewick General Hospital Foundation. Other areas of Interest I am actively involved in raising money for the Shrine Children's Hospital in Spokane. The Shrine Hospital serves many children with many needs, free of charge. My late husband was a Mason and a Shriner. I had the honor of being president of the Ladies Oriental Shrine a few years back. In Closing You probably think I don't have much time for Real Estate, but that is not the case. I am a full-time Realtor and I enjoy meeting new people and helping them get into the home of their dreams. Most of my business is referral because I have been in the business for so many years. I love what I do and would enjoy working with you to find you exactly what you are looking for!
