I'm just a vegan, RV lovin', crazy cat lady with a license to sell real estate in Iowa
Thanks for checking out my blog! Feel free to stop by anytime for random thoughts, vegan recipes, lots of animal pics and probably the occasional informative post on what's happening in the real estate market. (Hey, it can't be ALL fluff- I have to work too!)
I'm a REALTOR at Iowa Realty, a wife, mother, vegan, animal advocate, and cat lover. Please don't ask me how many cats I have. It's embarrassing. BUT, all but 3 have come to us via rescue and are all misfits that for one reason or another have been deemed unadobtable, so they get to live out their days here with us here on the "farm". I love renovation projects and have remodeled everything from houses to campers. This summer, we purchased a small 1982 motorhome and renovated it from top to bottom. From May to November you can find me taking in nature and getting away from it all at some campground in my little old motorhome. Luckily I can work from pretty much anywhere!
I spent all of my adult life working corporate administrative jobs and when my daughter left home to attend college I decided to pursue my dream career. Shortly before my 40th birthday I left my job at the University of Iowa and got my real estate license. I've been helping people all over eastern Iowa buy and sell homes ever since. Real estate is my passion and my clients range from first time home buyers to retirees selling and relocating to a warmer climate. I have helped people buy and sell everything from large lake homes to old farmhouses in the country. Every day is a new experience and I love the diversity. My work clothes range from dresses and high heels to jeans and rubber boots. I'm adaptable, down to earth and approachable. Most importantly, this career allows me the freedom and flexibility to concentrate on my other passions in life. Much of my life also revolves around my passion for animals. I am involved in cat rescue, animal advocacy and volunteer whenever possible at local animal shelters and farm sanctuaries. We live in the country on 5 acres in an old farmhouse built in 1900, so there is never a lack of work to do around here. I live on a gravel road and my SUV is always dirty. I do not drive a Mercedes.
Now for the work stuff. I work out of the Iowa Realty Corridor office in Coralville, IA and I happily serve clients looking to buy or sell anywhere in eastern Iowa. I am a member of both the Cedar Rapids Area Association of Realtors and the Iowa City Area Association of Realtors, which allows me to better serve clients in the area. If you list your home with me, your home will be listed on both the CR Multiple Listing Service and the Iowa City Multiple Listing Service, so you will get twice the exposure for the same price! I also do "light staging" on my listings at no cost to my sellers. I have an ever growing inventory of staging items and am happy to see what I can throw together to give my sellers homes a little extra sparkle. Reach out if you're ready to buy or sell a home.
