As a young child, my Mother said I reminded her of “The Lil’ Train That Could”….always running here and there, interested in all things new with a million questions to go along with that. After 17 years in the music industry I decided to try my hand in the real estate world and BINGO! It was a perfect fit. I loved looking at homes, loved math, and most importantly loved people. I never imagined after 22 years in the real estate business I’d find a place like SCF to sell homes, meet amazing people, and have so much fun at the same time. “The Lil’ Train That Could” has finally found her final destination!!

The strength of the team is each individual member

Being raised in a military family, I learned at an early age the importance of Teamwork, Commitment, Hard Work and Dedication. As your Realtor I will use these personal traits to serve your Real Estate needs whether you are buying or selling a property. As a military family often does, we moved from state to state for different assignments and eventually my family settled in Kansas. For over 25 years I worked in the medical and travel industries and during that time I developed excellent communication, customer care, and problem-solving skills. I developed a passion for Real Estate which led me to be a licensed Realtor working for one of the largest Real Estate agencies in Kansas providing the best service for my clients. I have been happily married for over 31 years and we have one son, who currently lives in the Denver area. I enjoy spending time with my husband and two dogs, and making new friends. Recently moving to Arizona and Sun City Festival, and joining the Festival Team, I will continue to use my Real Estate knowledge, experience and personal traits to ensure our clients receive the best in customer service, care and support.

The differences between an individual real estate agent, or even an entire real estate brokerage of individual agents, and a professional real estate team are compelling. An individual agent works alone, and may use automated systems, to meet all of their client’s needs, including managing the marketing of their home, fielding questions about their home, helping to negotiate any contracts and coordinating the various parties involved in a transaction to work towards a closing.

A real estate team unites clients, agents and automated systems together to provide a vast array of services rapidly and with great attention to detail. A tight-knit, experienced team like the Festival Team can provide you with high-quality, beneficial services that can bring real value to a transaction. The Festival Team will align its resources to work with you towards a common goal.


The Festival Real Estate Team listens to your needs and then we tailor our services to meet your needs. We then make every effort to sell your home at a price and terms acceptable to you. Along the way, we work to make the process of selling your home as positive and enjoyable as we are able, moving towards our common goal of your complete satisfaction.

You will be introduced to the Festival team from the very beginning and quickly the true benefits of working with a team will become apparent. From the moment we establish contact with a customer who wishes to inquire about our services, multiple persons are notified to prepare to meet their needs. This lays the foundation for timely, productive communications between all parties, helping to make clear everyone’s role in achieving your goals.

We know that finding the right agent to help you sell your home or find the perfect home is important to you. This is why we pride ourselves on offering the most advanced tools to help your experience become memorable. Combine our resources with the local market expertise of our team, and you can be confident in your decision of choosing The Festival Team. Welcome!! We look forward to working with you!
