I'm a pretty simple person at heart, and that's my approach to helping you buy or sell your real estate. Helping great people achieve their goals is something that I take very seriously; mostly everything else, not so much.
But I didn't always live and breathe real estate. Originally a graduate from Cal State Fullerton with a graphic design background and a specialty in print, I know lofty terms like "kern", "flexography", "trapping", and what a "pica" is. I can hand letter Helvetica on 100lb art board and know more about fonts than the average gal. I see colors in shades of PANTONE (did you know the annual color for 2017 is 15-0343 Greenery?). I love marketing and have an eye for detail that I believe translates well into the world of real estate, especially staging homes to look their best to potential buyers in today's market.
Yes, it’s true I spend my days brushing up on every new property that comes up in our market, but I also love kettle chips, summertime hay bales, and double rainbows. Even chasing the dog with my kids makes me as warm and fuzzy as the sight of rolling hills of farmlands in my camera viewfinder. As you can see, I’m not just a REALTOR, I’m a real person.
And don't get me started on how much I love iPhones, photography or anything tech. Get me started and I just can’t stop!
Real estate is a huge part of my life. I strive each day to expand my knowledge base in order to benefit my clients. But there are many other parts! I am the proud mother of two teens and the wife of an amazing husband and silent partner in my real estate business. I am a SoCal native, hailing from Disney's Anaheim -- go Angels! However, since relocating here in 2006, I've replaced my flip flops and sunscreen for a comfy pair of hiking boots and neoprene outerwear. I've grown to love everything Corvallis and couldn't imagine a more ideal place to raise my family than right here in Oregon.

- "Susan was such a huge help to us as first time homebuyers. She answered every question we had throughout the whole process. She went through all the paperwork with us line by line to ensure that we were clear on everything. She kept in contact with us and always responded quickly to my phone calls, texts, or e-mails. This was our 1st home purchase so I know I don't have anything to compare our experience to but I do know we were so fortunate to have Susan guide us through this process. Her knowledge, calmness, and positive attitude is 100% what we needed. She helped us get the one and only house we wanted and we couldn't be happier.”
