Prior to real estate I spent 25 years as a National Sales Director and trainer for Beauti Control, an image company based in Dallas, Texas. I started out as a sales representative with the company and within 2 years I was recognized as the top saleswoman in the United States. I grew into the director role after I started building and recruiting others for my team. I traveled throughout the US and personally trained other sales professionals to be successful. I concluded my career with managing 165 women, who followed suit in becoming highly profitable consultants.
I not only know what it takes to make my clients look good, but I also have insight on how to make homes look good as well. Since my husband is in the new construction industry, I have gained some valuable knowledge in the real estate areas of new construction and relocation. I have over 8 years of interior design and staging experience. I am always prepared to put these sales and marketing skills to work for my clients, especially for sellers who have an appropriated deadline to meet.
I have a solid reputation for providing quality sales service and I value my client’s time and resources. In most instances, I recommend that my buyers obtain a pre-approval rating so that we can immediately start working together on accomplishing their real estate goals. My marketing strategies are tailored to fulfill my client’s needs as well. I maintain a “gold” membership with Realtor.com where I have customized the real estate research experience. I use a minimum of 25 pictures per listing, audio virtual tours, and a feature for staged homes. These enhancements help market real estate for sellers and are useful for buyers to have an immediate presentation that may match their interest.
I graduated from North Kansas City High School and went on to attend the Oklahoma Academy School of Design, where I studied Interior Design. To further my education, I became a National Trainer for BeautiControl Image Corporation.
I am a member of the National Association of Realtors, the Missouri Association of Realtors, as well the Kansas City Regional Association of Realtors. These designations serve to increase my knowledge on home owner’s rights as the business evolves and to improve my professionalism in all areas. Since I am Relocation Certified in Buyer Assistance, Marketing Assistance, and Inventory Properties, and a Certified Negotiation Expert, I possess the diverse skill set my clients need in order to have a well-rounded professional experience.
I have 10 adorable grandchildren including a set of triplets, 10 years of age. In my spare time, I donate various items and volunteer with Hillcrest Ministries. I am also involved with in Big Brothers Big Sisters and I enjoy mentoring young women.
My hobbies include golf, a huge passion for gardening, and traveling. I am always excited when it comes to decorating homes. I also love to instruct people on how to choose a wardrobe that compliments their style. I have even conducted some past “dress for success” events. I have a talent for home décor and I have done several free remodeling jobs for family members, friends, and real estate clients.
