Agent/Associate Bio Information:I grew up on a family farm near Blooming Prairie, MN with 2 sisters and 2 brothers. I graduated from college with a B.S. Degree in Art Education and taught high school art in Adrian, MN for 8 years. I began my real estate career in Winona, MN in 1976 working out of a VW Bug. Shortly after, I moved to Northfield. I have been enjoying being a realtor in Northfield for over 35 years.
I have 2 wonderful grown sons. Chad, married to my fabulous daughter-in-law, Brenda, lives in Reno, NV. My "genius" grandson, Drew, age 8, plays soccer, football, basketball and enjoys karate, legos, and has many friends to keep him entertained. Son, Ryan, a long time resident of San Francisco, CA, recently moved back to MN with my other fabulous daughter-in-law Nicole and my brilliant 1 year old grandson Finn, who just likes to be around people.
Over the years, I have been active in the community working with the Learning Styles Task Force for the Northfield Schools, Northfield Chemical Health Task Force, Police Advisory Board, Laura Baker Board of Trustees and the Northfield Union of Youth. Currently, I am on the Board at Ruth's House, a transitional home for homeless and abused women and children.
I have enjoyed working with the incredible people in Northfield and the surrounding area. Buying and selling a home involves many details and occasionally, a "challenge" arises that requires special attention. There is always a solution to a problem. Keeping an experienced eye on the details is what Becca, my assistant, and I collectively do.
I have been fortunate to have received numerous top sales awards over the years, but honestly, it is the terrific people that I meet and help that keep me in the real estate business. I have a passion for my work and the people I serve! People energize me! I am never bored.
