I am a native of the Northwest - Springfield, Oregon and Kennewick, Washington. Being raised in the Northwest, I have a soft spot for evergreen trees, mountains, rain, and all things green and thought nowhere else could ever compare. But when I came to Utah to attend BYU, the mountains here along the Wasatch Front got under my skin and deep into my heart in a big way and I have been in love with Utah ever since! It is a fantastic place to live, play, and raise a family!
My grandma was a powerhouse realtor in the Portland-Vancouver area who specialized in high-end homes along the Columbia River and I can clearly trace my love of real estate back to her! When I visited, it was common to accompany her to her office or go restock fliers on a property or tag along while she prepped a house for a showing. One summer as a teenager, I stayed with her for a few months and spent hours on end shadowing her in her daily real estate duties and learned all sorts of nuances about how to be a great real estate agent.
At some point, her passion became my passion and I decided I wanted to be a real estate agent one day, too. My Grandma taught me a lot of things. The number one thing I learned was that it’s all about relationships and that treating people right is not just the only way to do things, but that it will take you far. Words that described the type of real estate agent she was would be: elegant, servant, friendly, hospitality, confident, above and beyond, competent, professional, warm, enthusiastic, results, and class act. Those are all things I aspire to be and do as your real estate agent. I love Utah, I love real estate, I love finding great deals, and I love working with people.
After receiving my Bachelor of Science from BYU and a whole lot of life after that, I went to Stringham Real Estate School and then joined Holmes4Sale Brokerage after receiving my real estate license. My broker, Chad Holmes, who I have known for years and was our agent/broker when my husband and I bought our first home, has a wealth of knowledge and experience from over fifteen years in the business. The real estate market in Utah is hot and a real estate agent to help you navigate the process is a must have. I look forward to working with you!
In my free time, I love to spend time with my husband, Eric, a structural engineer and former landscaper, and our four kids. I love dancing, cooking, music, hiking, reading, exercising, gardening, yard saleing, eating good food (!), and teaching colorguard each summer in Oregon. The American Red Cross and CureSearch for Children’s Cancer are two causes I love to volunteer with and am passionate about (shout out to blood donors!).
