I am a wife and mother of two fantastic young adults. I am also a Realtor. My interest in Real Estate is grounded in a love of Northwest architecture and landscapes, from many eras. I am a Seattle native. My husband Russ & I restored a Beach Drive 1906 Craftsman that, nearing completion, was included in the West Seattle Historic Home Tour. We currently live in a 1913 rustic Craftsman in Ballard/Phinney, that we are in the process of beautifying. I have been in the real estate business since 1999, and earned "Rookie of the Year" in 2000. I work for Mike Skahen, broker of Lake & Co. Real Estate Inc. on the north shore of Green Lake. I am committed to continuing education, and am a certified ePro Realtor Internet specialist, a WSU Cooperative Extension Master Gardener, and an Accredited Staging Professional; among other interests. I use all of these skills to provide the best service to new and existing clients.
