Serving the Des Moines Metro area, specializing in older homes and neighborhoods

Before selling real estate, I spent years moving around the country as a newspaper reporter. I loved it but missed the Midwest so I returned in the mid-1990s as a writer for Better Homes and Gardens magazine. While there I fell in love with homes, decorating, and all things house-related. I even served as editor for a magazine for first-time homeowners and, in the process, bought my first house. I love being able to blend my outgoing personality and journalistic skills into my real estate career. I sell all over the Metro but have a soft spot for older homes and established neighborhoods. I live in the Waterbury neighborhood (in almost 100-year-old home) with my husband, two children, and two dogs.
