I am a people person who is honest and dependable, with an upbeat attitude and a sense of pride in all projects I undertake. By prioritizing and following through, I will achieve all of your real estate needs. I am motivated and personable, with diverse skills that include retail and restaurant management. Before real estate, several years were spent working as a Community Association Manager in Sedona. There, I directly oversaw multiple communities, working out of an office that managed some 20+ subdivisions in and around the Sedona and Verde Valley areas. I am very knowledgeable of the local area and feel very blessed to live in such a unique and beautiful place. Born in Holland, I grew up in a Dutch speaking household and my family emigrated to the Phoenix area when I was just 5. By Arizona standards that makes me a native! After being raised in the Phoenix area, I landed in Sedona with my husband and children in 1994. My children grew up in Sedona, went to the great schools here and now lead busy lives in the entertainment industries of Los Angeles and Nashville. I am truly thrilled to be associated with Russ Lyon | Sotheby's International Realty. They offer unrivaled marketing service and we agents have a top notch support system that includes continuing education and training programs for our realty team. I continue to hone my technology skills and learn about the real estate industry each day. Downtime for me consists of music, cooking, dining in our fabulous restaurants, hiking and travel. I am especially interested in the viticulture of the local area and have enjoyed past volunteer work for the Sedona Jazz Festival and currently do volunteer work for the Oak Creek Watershed Council and the Yavapai Food Neighbor's Project.
