Cha Cha Cha Changes….

Recently I’ve been honored to assist some friends in selling vacant land. Some were long held properties that needed to be let go when early dreams were no longer part of the long game vision. Others were opportunities to exchange an unrealized idea into an ideal growth situation for future development. Still others were born from the simple necessity for funding life’s unexpected changes. The natural state of the land itself inspires hope, from the sprouting leaves and budding flowers to the aspirations of new owners looking forward to beginning plans for their own future. The realization that I’m blessed to witness, and hopefully contribute to, these important transitions is not lost on me. I’m extremely grateful for the trust and confidence bestowed upon me and I pray that I live up to the gift.  Each time someone engages my services their life is changing; it is for happy or sad reasons, it is stressful, hopeful, sometimes woeful, but always because something is changing. People deal with change in many different ways, and it is always interesting and informative going through the process with others as they make their way through to the other side. My hope is that we navigate well and chart a true course to their desired destination, reaching a positive place to rest and continue their life’s journey.

What is that quote?…change is life’s only constant…something like that anyway.

Thankful for the last 6 months and looking forward to the next 6 decades!

Okay, maybe not 6 decades, but at least a long while! I am so blessed to have been a part of 5 local transactions with 3 long time friends and 2 new ones! All that studying and learning I’ve been doing over the past ten years didn’t quite prepare me  for what I’ve learned hands on this past six months. I’m so grateful to the friends and leaders in my office at NextHome Cornerstone and those patient agents on the other side of the phone and email!


Home is where the heart is, they say, and my heart is with helping people find that perfect place to call “home”.

Allow me to assist you with your NextHome purchase or the sale of your current home; I commit earnest, honest and diligent service to you!

Hello Real Estate world!

I’m so excited to finally begin my real estate career! After over ten years of keeping my license and education current, but not active, I feel so blessed to join Dana Topel and the NextHome Cornerstone Realty team. I look forward to learning from Dana, Tom, Tracy, Eric, Lori, Drew, and Ami to serve our clients, friends, and community with the same excellent care and commitment I’ve witnessed in them. I promise to give my best effort and hope to garner the same respect and admiration they have achieved in this highly competitive industry. Let me know if I can be of any assistance to you in finding your next home as I have certainly found mine!
