I was born, raised, and have spent my entire life in the communities we call the River Bend— Wood River, the Milton Area of Alton, Rosewood Heights, and Godfrey where I live with my husband of twenty-something years, a daughter, a son, and literally the cutest dog in the world, Waylon!
My hobbies include drinking coffee (yes, it's a hobby), buying shoes (this may be more of an addiction that a hobby), traveling, Cardinal baseball games, "playing golf", singing, and enjoying "good" country music.
I began my real estate career with RE/MAX in 2003, earned my (Managing) Brokers license in 2006, and after much success, I opened my own real estate brokerage in 2008. After 8 years of managing, recruiting, training, bookkeeping, etc., I made the best decision ever and went back to RE/MAX, where I could concentrate on SELLING HOMES and not fulfilling all duties of a Managing Broker and business owner.
I've been through the ups and downs of this crazy real estate business, and have consistently remained one of the top-selling REALTORS® in our area. I stay involved in various real estate committees through our state and local association and currently serve on our MLS Board of Directors, Greater Gateway Association of REALTORS® Board of Directors and the Illinois REALTORS® Professional Standards Committee. This involvement keeps me “in the know” on important real estate issues and laws that affect buyers and sellers.
Living at the north end of Godfrey, and my husband owning businesses in Florissant, MO and Belleville, IL means that we spend a lot of time eating out, shopping, and other family activities all over the Metro-East. I list and sell property from Jersey to St. Clair County and everywhere in between so finding myself in Edwardsville, Belleville, Godfrey, Brighton, and Bethalto all in a day’s work is completely normal, and made me realize I needed to be more centrally located! I made the move to the RE/MAX Alliance office in Glen Carbon, IL this Spring so that I could be within 30 minutes of most places where I do business. (Driving a fast car doesn’t hurt either!)
Aside from the obvious geographical benefits, I was looking for a real estate brokerage with who stays on the cutting edge with technology and marketing. RE/MAX Alliance offers me the best tools and resources available and a support staff that is out of this world! The owners are dedicated to the success of their agents and our company as a whole. We have four offices, 115+ agents, and we are the #1 real estate firm for sales in Madison County, Illinois.
