Since arriving in Ann Arbor in 1992 as a University of Michigan student, I have come to realize why so many people choose to call this area home. The faces and places here have enriched my life for the past two decades and have provided innumerable opportunities for personal and professional growth.
Working as a Realtor® allows me to build relationships with people with whom I may soon be working, playing, volunteering, and celebrating alongside. In short, it lets me get to know my current and soon-to-be neighbors while sharing my passion for this part of Michigan. I find great satisfaction in strengthening our community by connecting people with their future homes.
One of my interests is local history, and let me tell you, there is no bigger thrill for a history buff than to walk around inside the houses that tell the stories of the region’s past and present. Whether it’s a turn-of-the-century Victorian, a classic 1960s ranch, or an innovative energy-efficient contemporary home, each house has something to say about the culture from which it grew. As a Realtor® I feel like I get to play a small but vital role in extending and sometimes challenging the narratives of Washtenaw County’s history.
I am also proud to be a member of the Trillium Real Estate team. The people here hold themselves to the highest standards of professionalism but never lose sight of the fact that we are part of the very personal process of continuing to make this area a welcoming, vibrant, diverse community that people want to call home.
