As an experienced professional in the sales and marketing industry, I thrive working with my buyers and sellers with the largest and most recognized brand in the Real Estate industry, Coldwell Banker.
When I was 5 years old, I started drawing floorplans of condos and homes. At 10, my father started logging miles every time he agreed to take me on a neighborhood tour or Open House! At age 20, while completing my degree, I became licensed in the state of New York. I focused on the evolution of Lower Manhattan's luxury high-rise apartments, usually showing and closing transactions between class.
Later, I was fortunate to learn and contribute at internships at Target Corporation in both the Minneapolis and New York offices, before tossing my hat. Meeting andworking with people is important to my professional growth, and after successfully developing in luxury goods sales, I returned to my hometown to be closer to family and that Minnesota nostalgia. Unknowingly, I soon found myself representing a respected Italian jeweler Roberto Coin in international marketing and sales, selling the brand and high-value product to diverse markets in ever-changing destinations.
|Perks of International Direct Sales!|
|From Stockholm to Shanghai, Jordan to Tokyo, and Bordeaux to St. Barth's - I globally immersed myself in my favorite past time - meeting people, learning their needs, and translating it in to sales and lifelong friendships.|
Today I blend diverse experience in design and merchandising, global multi-lingual sales, and attentive listening and understanding, to execute what I do best - exceed the expectations of my clients' needs
No matter the transaction, I want it to be exciting, simple, and memorable.
Coldwell Banker Burnet shares my commitment to exceptional customer service, passionate leadership, and innovation in the industry.
|A few hobbies include...|
Interior Design and Staging. I am very visual, so balance, proportion, perspective, color, light, placement, fabric, tc. all play in my end when I enter any room.
A strong skill of mine, each project is unique, from re-inventing a 16 year girl's bedroom for a client, to designing an outdoor dining lanai patio for a client on a nearby Lake, to staging several yachts from small to huge - this is a favorite interest that always keeps me busy!
I am happy to pass on my advice and eye to my clients when they ask for my help.
I'm a stickler for any DIY project, from building a window valance to installing under-cabinet lighting, to re-inventing old furniture.
Painting - something I hope to one day take more time to learn, I've always found it relaxing to sketch, draw, and try my hand at painting.
Floral Design / Gardening - Whether for my mother, as a gift, for the home, or just for fun - I love creating arrangements and gardening, it somehow relaxes me as if meditating. I appreciate nature and the beauty that it brings.
Since 2014, I've acted as Contributing Writer & Editor to Lake of the Isles Living, Magazine, a Minneapolis Lifestyle, Home+Garden, and Arts magazine.
I parlay a love for writing and presentation styling to the coffee tables of individuals and families of the Lake of the Isles, Kenwood, and Lowry Hill neighborhoods. I enjoy meeting and composing articles on the individuals and families, businesses, and events that make our neighborhoods.
I especially love working with local businesses to liaise special and seasonal events, it's my way of connecting to our community.
I am grateful to be on the board of the Global Business Council, a unique committee within the Minneapolis Area Association of Realtors. Learn More
I contribute my time to various organizations, some of which include the German-American Chamber of Commerce, Planned Parenthood of MN, N & S Dakota, and SafeHands Animal Dog Rescue of MN, and the Loring Greenway Association. I've also worked on many other projects, most memorably with a young humanitarian neighbor of mine (12 at the time!) who partnered with Haiti Outreach to provide clean drinking water to remote communities in Haiti. Together we raised enough money to build a well in a town in Haiti!
Whether assisting on a fundrasing committee, event planning, networking people together, or giving my time in a manner that is helpful - I do what I can to contribute to our community and give back!
All in all, I listen to and assist my clients in every stage of the home buying and selling process, from offering a streamlined in-house mortgage, title, and closing services, to offering extended services such as French, Spanish, and Italian linguistic services to satisfy additional needs of customers.

Consult With Me on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which will help you get top dollar. Staging the home, making minor repairs or improvements, even simply painting the walls, can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast. Allow me to tailor a plan that works for you.
