“I have been licensed with Realty Executives since 2001 and thoroughly love my job! I have watched Yuma grow during these last 20 years and can’t imagine living anywhere else.”
A Little History
I came to Yuma by way of Kansas to live near my parents in November of 1995. My plan was not to stay but to grow up a little and then return to what I considered my home in the plains. I remember comeing to Yuma and being scared out of my mind because Yuma was a big city. After living in Yuma for about a year, I got a job working for a Realty Executives agent.
I began working there as a front office receptionist and runner. It was really great because as part of my duties I had to put up signs, deliver papers, etc. This really helped me learn my way around Yuma, which was larger by 100,000 people than the small Kansas town I called home. It wasn’t long and I could get you anywhere in Yuma – so long as you knew the names of the housing subdivisions!
By 1997 I was hooked and had really fallen in love with Yuma, I also decided it was time to finish my college degree and enrolled in AWC with a major in Business Administration with an emphasis in Management. I continued to work for the same Realty Executives agent until November 1997 when I began working for Lynn McKelvey-Shultz, another long time Realty Executives agent, as her personal assistant. Transitioning into Lynn’s office enabled me to work the hours I wanted in order to gain office experience and be able to attend college full time.
By the year, 2001, I had transferred to Northern Arizona University’s Yuma campus and was full speed and ready to finish my Bachelor’s degree. During this, my junior year at NAU-Yuma, Lynn suggested that I get my Real Estate license and continue to work with her to see if maybe I would like it and continue to stay even after graduation. So that summer of 2001 I took my classes and the rest is history! I have been licensed with Realty Executives since 2001 and thoroughly love my job! I have watched Yuma grow during these last 20 years and can’t imagine living anywhere else. I feel lucky to be able to watch the exciting process of bringing a seller and buyer together. Witnessing the realization of someone’s dreams is truly rewarding.
This relationship is as strongly tied to emtions as it is finances. I strive to leave my clients moving into a home that not only meets their needs, wants and dreams but also maintains the financial and budget restraints the client needs.
Being a REALTOR takes hard work and determination. To be a fantastic REALTOR takes love, compassion, experience, determination, and the constant ability to learn and change with the ever-evolving real estate market. I strive to be the most current when it comes to real estate laws, procedures, technology and market volatility.
As a REALTOR, I take my job as seriously as your doctor takes your health. I know that your financial assets, like your health, play a huge role in your future and hsould be placed in the hands of the most competent of professionals.
