I am  a lifetime resident of Columbia County and have been a licensed realtor/broker in Scappoose since 1978. For many years I worked as the managing broker for Prudential NW Properties Scappoose Branch, until deciding to retire as manager and focus solely on working with my clients. That is when I joined John L Scott Real Estate.  I take great pride in giving my best service to each home buyer or home seller, whether they are first time purchasers or sellers or returning clients that I have worked with in the past. It is one of the most rewarding elements in my job to have past clients return for future business or refer me to their friends and family for my help and expertise in their real estate transactions .  

Please contact me with your questions whether your looking to buy, sell or invest in real estate.

I look forward to working with you!



I take pride in offering high-caliber full-service residential real estate expertise. My clients are my top priority, and I focus on delivering the best possible results for them.



The real estate market is hyperlocal, seasonal and temperamental—in other words, it can change on a dime. Technology has made information more accessible to everyone, but it can be difficult to keep up with recent events that affect home values. The benefits of working with a licensed real estate professional go far beyond what a mobile app, online video, or website can do.

I provide my clients with information on market seasonality and information relevant to what is happening in their specific neighborhood. This customized analysis includes recent comparable sales that factor into an offer and acceptance strategy.



Successful negotiations help move a conversation forward and transform the process into an agreement that’s a win for all parties. Negotiation is not only a skill, but a mindset. I keep my clients’ best interests top of mind as I negotiate on their behalf. 


Transactional Excellence

I am dedicated to transactional excellence for every listing and sale. What this means for you is that I oversee every detail of the real estate transaction. The transaction is far from over once an offer has been accepted. I monitor inspections, appraisals, title, escrow and loan processes. Communication and collaboration with all the partners and parties involved with the transaction ensures a smooth and timely closing. I am committed to my clients before, during and after a sale.  

Ask me your real estate questions.
