Office Manager, REO Contract Specialist, REO Transaction Coordinator

My real estate career started at Countryside Realty in 2013 where I first developed a love for the industry and a true understanding of the real estate world.  The years I have spent in real estate have been the most rewarding professional years of my life. My successful professional path includes extensive experience with REO Bank Owned Properties.  Through my years of experience, I have acquired a true knowledge of this field, which has given me an opportunity to develop strong relationships within the REO community.  I wear a lot of hats at Countryside Realty! As a Transaction Coordinator I have assisted in the successful closing of countless transactions.  As an REO Contract Specialist, I work closely with the banks and buyer agents to ensure that the offer, contract and closing processes run smoothly to help the bank liquidate its properties quickly and efficiently.  As a Short Sale Negotiator, I have assisted in the negotiation and processing of many short sales with successful closings.  As Office Manager, I am responsible for managing the full day-to-day operations of the office, focusing on supporting the brokers, agents and real estate related office duties.  These various responsibilities have provided me with an all-encompassing expertise of the real estate world, and has given me an innumerable list of accomplishments.  I am very grateful to have been given the opportunity to contribute to the successful futures of all of our clients.  As a Realtor, I pride myself in offering our clients and customers exceptional customer service. My skill and commitment to perfection have made me a trusted source of information in the real estate community.  I am always ready and willing to coach, mentor and guide individuals to efficiently manage and close every real estate transaction.  

In addition to my full-time job, I enjoy a wonderful life with my husband, Todd..our children and grandchildren. I am also passionate about out two border collies, our herd of horses and taking care of our ranch just outside of Milaca.
