about me

I specialize. I like selling TRUE TUCSON. To me, that means downtown Tucson, high quality construction infill projects such as the Mercado District, authentic turn of the century homes in the barrios and Armory Park, and in the lower Foothills.   I love adobes, midcentury modern brick, and quality design!   I live near the university, and work in the university historic districts: West University, Feldman's Historic, Dunbar Spring, Iron Horse, Sam Hughes.   If my areas of expertise are of interest for you, I’m more than happy to help.

I am among the top 100 Realtors in Tucson, consecutively for many years, but to know me is to know that I'm no high-roller. I do have an assistant or two, just to serve  you better.  I devote myself to my clients, whether its shopping for a first home, selling your home so that you can relocate, or hunting for the beautiful “forever home.” I focus mainly on Downtown, the UA historic neighborhoods, and lower foothills. Nine-time award winner with Realty Executives: Gold Circle Award 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 100% Club Winner and Executive Club award in 2006 and 2007 and 2008, 2009. EcoBroker Certified 2009. I am now with Habitation Realty, and am their top producer for many years.  Habitation Realty is a small boutique brokerage, located in a gorgeously renovated historic church in Dunbar Spring! We pride ourselves in specializing in Tucson’s unique historic districts.

Stone curb appeal

Eighteen years as a full-time Realtor, 600+ transactions…

...let me help you navigate this tough market and buy or sell your home. Although I specialize in Downtown’s historic and university neighborhoods and vintage homes, I also team with developers on innovative infill projects, and with builders at the Mercado District, Tucson’s newest and best downtown community, with the modern streetcar pulling right up to the Mercado. I work tirelessly with buyers to find the perfect property for them. I work equally well with sellers, determining value, hiring professional photographers, marketing the property in advance to my many interested buyers and investors, and then through various online sites, print media, MLS and open houses. I run at least one full-page ad in Zocalo magazine each month.

My motto is “Be the First to See It” and I make good on that promise, searching for property, previewing, getting my clients in (and their offers in!) sometimes before anyone else is awake!

Prior to real estate, I taught high school English for 20 years. I love volunteering with things I love, and I’m a volunteer photographer at Tucson’s first no-kill shelter for dogs, Pima Paws for Life, as well as a volunteer with Tucson’s indie theater, The Loft. If dogs or films are your thing, check those out! Communication is my forte, and if you’d like to know more or talk about the possibilities of working together, shoot me an email or give me a call.
