Besides being an active real estate agent, I am the parent of three grown daughters, a former high school teacher, past PTA president, Girl Scout leader and the volunteer coordinator of Torrey Pines High School. These are just a few of the many hats I have worn in my 35 years as a Del Mar resident. On my days off, I have the pleasure of taking my three granddaughters to the beach, playing bridge and tennis and beginning to learn golf. I am active in the Del Mar Rotary Club and served as president in 2011-12. I have served 6 years on the Board of Interantional Relief Teams in Mission Valley. (irteams.org) I continue to attend Solana Beach Presbyterian Church and am active in service to the community.
Real Estate Family History
Being a fifth generation Californian from a Real Estate family, I decided to become a Realtor. I passed my licensing test to become a Realtor before I graduated from High School in 1964 and was one of the youngest women in the profession at that time. I love the business and have continued in it while raising a family. I've watched the changes in the market and participated in investing and buying and selling for myself and clients for 49 years. Joining Rotary added to my "service above self" mentality and I continue with both Rotary and Real Estate with pleasure.
Service to Senior Citizens
My Grandmother , who recently died at 111 years old, has led me in the direction of service to senior citizens. I have finished training and have been designated "Senior Real Estate Specialist". This training has helped me to serve others who have the need for an advocate, be they young or old. My church of Solana Beach Presbyterian also extended my knowledge of helping others when I became a "Stephen Minister". I have helped many seniors downsize their homes and find wonderful alternative locations to thrive,
I recently studied and passed the Certified Negotiation Expert Class (CNE) and enjoy negotiating on behalf of my Senior clients and friends.
