Having been born in Petoskey, raised in South Florida, and returned to Petoskey full time in 1988, I have a precious appreciation for Petoskey and all of the Little Traverse Bay area. There is absolutely no place I'd rather be!
I have raised four children here and currently have seven 'Grammiekids' (a name coined by my first grandchild). Together we enjoy beach days at the Petoskey State Park, cycling on the Little Traverse Wheelway, walking the Bear River Valley Recreation Area, and poking around the Gaslight District's many wonderful shops. I am so blessed to have them near and to know that they're being raised in this spectacular community.
When I'm not working Real Estate and not spending time with the family, I keep busy with lots of 'helping activities'. I'm involved with my church both in ministry and technical support, I host a weekly women's group, and I co-facilitate two support groups--DivorceCare® and Single & Parenting®. I love my life here and appreciate all the opportunities to express my passion for people.
Prior to launching my career in Real Estate I worked for decades in my family business which was a network of high end toy stores. I learned my work ethic ("If you have a pulse you show up!") and my customer service skills ("Customer is king!") from my grandfather who built that well known and much loved chain from the ground up. I am so grateful for that, sometimes tough, education in business. It has served me well for four decades and continues to be the foundation of how I care for my Real Estate clients.
I look forward to putting my love for Petoskey, my passion for people, and my dedication to customer care to work for you. Call, text, or email anytime.
The Code establishes time-honored and baseline principles that come from the collective experiences of REALTORS® since the Code of Ethics was first established in 1913. Those principles can be loosely defined as:
Loyalty to clients.
Fiduciary (legal) duty to clients.
Cooperation with competitors.
Truthfulness in statements and advertising; and non-interference in exclusive relationships that other REALTORS® have with their clients.
