I grew up in a family of 17 children. My parents wanted a dozen kids when they married and after 12 wanted 20. I am number 11 from the top, so I hardly say I am the oldest or youngest. I say I'm in the middle. In a large family, you all pitch in to help, learn to work hard and you succeed in life all on your own. I have always been driven to succeed. I moved to California when I was 18 years old with no college degree but a desire to be successful. I met my husband there. After 25 years of living the dream in California, the Navy brought us to Tinker AFB in Oklahoma City. I quickly made friends and it felt like home. When my husband retired, and we could live anywhere, he asked where will we call home. I told him we were already "home" right here in Oklahoma. The people are incredibly nice here and economy allows for a very comfortable lifestyle. After my husband retired from the Navy, I decided I wanted to give real estate a shot. I absolutely love helping people to accomplish their dreams, whether that is buying their first home or their 20th. I sell all homes from beginners to up sizing to downsizing, I do them all. I listen to my clients needs and help them to find a home they love and love the home they get.
