I am a broker associate at LIV Sotheby's International Realty. I've been fortunate to be intimately involved in the real estate industry for nearly 30 years. I began my career as a real estate financial analyst, which is a skillset that has benefited many of my clients throughout the years. As my career progressed, I embarked on a new journey and entered the commercial and residential real estate marketing and sales industry. My next career evolution propelled me into the residential real estate development business. In my view, there is no better way to understand the building and financial components of a home purchase than living through the process from the beginning to the end. The learning curve is extensive, but perhaps the most advantageous skill I can provide to my clients. As time passed, I felt it was time to give back to my industry. That decision resulted in me being elected to become a Director at the Denver Board of REALTORS, and later leading to being elected as the President of the Denver Board of REALTORS. I occupied positions as Director of the Colorado Board of REALTORS and then advanced to become an Executive Director of the National Association of REALTORS. In 2007 I was humbled by being the recipient of the REALTOR of the Year award, bestowed to me by the Denver Board of REALTORS. This award was a surprise and an honor. Finally, I was awarded 2002, 2003, 2005, and 2009 Denver Board of REALTROS President's Distinguish Service Award. I strongly feel that anyone who purchases real estate deserves to work with a REALTOR who is dedicated to building ongoing knowledge about the real estate industry. Thus, I pursued a significant number of certifications, which were the culmination of several hours, days, and months of continuing education. Some of those certifications/designations are as follows: Professional Certifications and Designations (Past and Present):DRS Certified, Physician Agent Specialist; Certified Commercial Investment Member Candidate (CCIM); Certified Residential Specialist Designation (CRS); Electronic Real Estate Certified (e-Pro); Certified International Real Estate Specialist (I.R.E.S.); Transnational Referral Certified (TRC); NAR Certified, At Home with Diversity; Former Certified Tax Accountant; Alumni, The Metro Denver Transit Alliance Citizen's Academy.
