Licensed in CA.
My appreciation for the Monterey Peninsula has deepened over the 3 decades spanning my Real Estate Lending career. Post Air Force, my parents moved as my dad would become a Defense Language instructor at the DLI, a prestigious post at the Monterey Presidio.
In the 60s, this was a small town with no stop lights and I was eager to experience big cities and to travel the world. A graduate of UC Irvine, I began working with college-bound juniors, seniors, and their families. I quickly realized that helping students choose college over travel didn’t fit my world view having spent the 5 years before college experiencing exotic foods in different countries! And, that’s how I transitioned from education finance to Home Improvement Lending. I became an expert in construction lending, going on to open branches from southern California to the verdant Northwest.
For a brief while, in order to have more flexibility with my daughter’s school schedules, I earned rookie of the year status as a realtor in Corona del Mar and Laguna Beach. Then, I went back to what I did best- conventional lending- with an even deeper appreciation for professional realtors. I now have the opportunity to expand my service to the community working with Veterans and Active Military utilize their generous VA Loan benefits. I now know why so many service members visit and move to the Monterey Peninsula- they’ve traveled the world and know why this area affords a uniquely serene lifestyle in a beautiful stateside locale.
Also, I do now believe that summertime and between semester travel is wiser than a long sojourn before higher education studies! I welcome the opportunity to share more, learn your story, and earn your future referrals.
