Living in the Lake Geneva area for over 35 years has given me a deep appreciation for the lifestyle offered here. Whether it’s a lakefront residence on Geneva Lake, a welcoming, family lake home with great lake rights, a country estate, or your first home, my passion for helping people make the right real estate decisions for their lifestyle, their family, their future and their financial position drives me to be the best I can be.

In looking for a home it was not a one and done deal. We worked together to put offers on 4 homes and each one did not work outuntil the end purchase. She took the time to get to know my exact needs and wishes. The end product was pure heaven. She worked every day to help me find a new home for me and my daughter. Even after the sale she has checked in with me to make sure everything was going well. I truly feel like if I have any questions or concerns I could call her for advice.
