I am the previous owner and broker of Paradise Real Estate, now the Managing broker at Sierra Sotheby’s International Realty.  I absolutely love, breathe and eat real estate!  I find great satisfaction in helping my clients achieve their real estate goals. Its not about the transactions, its about the people…my favorite part of real estate.

I take pride in providing excellent customer service and I want you to feel good about referring me to your family and friends. I’m honored when people choose me to represent them in their real estate transactions. Professionalism and integrity is very important to me.  I am certified in “Director’s Role in Professional Standards” with the California Association of Realtors and currently on the board of the South Tahoe Association of Realtors. I’m the past President of Tahoe Douglas Rotary and the Lake Tahoe Business by Referral Network.
