I consider myself an Illini, though I have lived in Indiana for more than half of my life. Born and raised in Southern Illinois, I grew up in very small communities, graduating with a class of 62 students. I think that has contributed to my outgoing personality, I never meet a stranger, because living in such small communities, you knew everyone. I was blessed to marry my wonderful husband of 37 years, after meeting him in college. He is a project manager at Technicolor. We have two great children, a daughter, Karissa, who is a Physician Assistant at Central Indiana Orthopedics and a son, Josh, who graduated from the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University with a marketing degree and currently works as part of my team. I am happy they are both local so we can spend time together.
After working in the accounting field for several years, I decided to take advantage of the opportunity to stay home and raise my children. After they were both in school full time, I needed to get back into the business world, so I took a part time job as an unlicensed assistant at Re/Max Ability Plus. I guess you could say real estate is in my blood; my mother is the broker/owner of Knox County Realty in Vincennes, Indiana. I received my real estate license in March of 1997 and continued at Re/Max as a licensed assistant. In August of 1997, I began my career with Century 21, when I accepted a position as a licensed assistant at Century 21 at the Crossing. As my business grew, I felt the need to further my career, when I was invited to become a member of The Richwine Real Estate Group at Century 21 Realty Group I. Continued my journey with the Marchant Team at Keller Williams Indianapolis NE, moved on to be on my own at Century 21 Scheetz, where in 2014 I was the top agent for the whole company, not just my location. I moved back to Keller Williams but knew something was missing. I joined eXp Realty, LLC, the cloud based/agent owned brokerage but found I missed the collaboration with other agents face to face so we have joined Trueblood Real Estate, located in Fishers where we feel we will fit in and be able to offer our clients superior service.
I bring to my business a willingness to work hard but also the ability to keep my priorities in check. I look forward to creating more friendships and providing real estate service that I can be proud of. I have been a resident of Lawrence Township for 30 years and now live in Noblesville. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, whether it is slipping away to my “Happy Place” or just relaxing at home!
Creating friendships.. one home at a time. Brought together by real estate, held together by friendship!
