A resident of the Coachella Valley since 1989 I became a Realtor after a 25 career in the travel / hospitality industry. I specialize in residential, second home and vacation properties in Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage, and Palm Desert.

In my experience, a home isn't a dream home because of its room dimensions. It's about how you feel when you walk through the front door, and the way you can instantly envision your life unfolding there.

This is about more than real estate - it‘s about your life and your dreams.

Weather you are looking to sell your current home, or purchasing a home to relocate, I want to be the real estate professional to help you. I work with each of my clients individually, taking the time to understand their unique needs and lifestyle, and I want to do the same for you.

It's incredibly fulfilling to know I am helping my clients open a new chapter of their lives. That's why I work so hard to not only find that perfect buyer or home, but also to handle every last detail of the sale process, from negotiating the terms of sale to recommending moving companies.
