I'm here to promote the lifestyle of living along Lake Erie in Northeastern Ohio and to connect with anyone interested in learning more about why this "Vacationland" is a also a great place to live.

I grew up on the shores of Lake Erie on the Cedar Point peninsula-just down the road from the world-famous Cedar Point amusement park. Living on the lake taught me early on the benefits of "location, location, location". We spent idyllic summer days swimming, boating and fishing on Sandusky Bay and Lake Erie. For additional fun, our parents took us a mile down the road to Cedar Point amusement park. We spent our winters ice skating and ice boating on Sandusky Bay. Even as a child, I understood that Cedar Point was a magical place to live and couldn't imagine living anywhere else-until I grew up.
Growing up, my younger sister and I listened to the Beach Boys and began to dream of life on another coast where there was an endless summer. After graduating from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, we headed out to California where I became a REALTOR in 1989. In 1999, my Lake Erie roots called me back to Northern Ohio. I earned my Ohio REALTOR designation in early 2000 and built a home within walking distance to the lake in Huron, Ohio.
My 20 plus years of selling real estate on two coasts reinforced my understanding of the importance of "location, location, location". Homes near the water sell for a premium price per square foot compared to other areas. There is a finite amount of land to be developed on or near our oceans and Great Lakes. Purchasing a home or lot in a beach community is a way to fully enjoy the many benefits of living near water while maximizing your opportunity to build personal wealth through your real estate investment. Building future wealth along with wonderful memories of life on Lake Erie is a wonderful legacy to give to yourself and your heirs. It is my firm belief that you can't go wrong buying a home near the lake.
My specialty is selling the lifestyle and homes in beach communities along the shores of Lake Erie with emphasis on the lakeshore and beach communities in Avon Lake, Bay Village, Huron, Vermilion, Sandusky and Catawba Island. Let me introduce you to the unique charms of the Cedar Point peninsula, Old Homestead, Chaska Beach, Beachwood Cove, Mitiwanga, Ruggles Beach and Vermilion Lagoons, to name just a few.

My goal is not to list a slew of homes in order to have my name plastered on yard signs all over the North Coast of Ohio. My goal is to connect with motivated sellers who truly want to work as a team to prepare their home for optimal showing to the public and to price it competitively in order to attract the discriminating buyer in today's market. We will work together to get your home sold for the highest price, in the shortest amount of time, with the least amount of disruption to you and your family.
As a certified mediator, I have added expertise in mediation and negotiation. In addition, I am a certified professional property stager (PPS) and believe in the importance of showcasing your home on the internet with beautiful photos and descriptive marketing. When you hire me as your listing agent, you can be assured you will be working with and talking directly to me and not an assistant or team of people who work for me.
If you are a buyer who chooses to work with me, my goal is to ask detailed questions in order to get to know you better and understand your wants, needs and desires for your future home and community. Ideally, we'll discuss your wants and needs before we set out to look at homes. This helps us identify your lifestyle which, in turn, helps you determine the best home and community to suit that lifestyle. Your continued contentment with the home and community where you ultimately end up is my reward for a job well done.
