I grew up in Altadena and Pasadena, California. I attended Loma Alta Nursery School, Altadena Elementary, Eliot Jr. High, John Muir High and PCC. I'm just a "Dena Girl". My career started in banking in 1981 - working in the Loan Adjustment and Foreclosure/REO departments of Bank of America in Pasadena. I then left BofA and became an Escrow Officer in Glendale and Hermosa Beach, CA. I received my real estate license in 1990 and joined Tarbell Realtors in Redondo Beach. When the real estate market pretty much came to a halt, I went back in to banking and learned all about SBA lending. I did that for over a decade while still selling real estate part time. In 2004, I joined Keller Williams Realty in Pasadena and in 2010 I joined Dilbeck Realtors in Pasadena. I've been a full time Realtor for many years now and am the happiest I've ever been assisting people with realizing their dreams. I take pride in my work. The most important element in any transaction is to listen, listen, listen to your buyer or seller. I am real, straight and to the point...that's what my clients say they like the most about me! My passion is singing. You may find me around Dena Land singing the National Anthem here and there or at an Open House - you just never know when a song will need to be sung. Just remember - I'm always in tune with your needs!
