I’ve spent most of my life in the San Juan Islands. My sales record of consistent top-producer is a result of brokering real estate in this unique environment for over 40 years. During that time, I’ve developed expertise in land use, private islands, waterfront, commercial investments, permitting and finance. As a life-long “local,” I have a special love for island life, and extensive knowledge of all island properties, in village communities and secluded backroads alike.
I take pride in being a good listener so that I can carefully attend to the needs and wants of both listing clients and buyers alike. Living on Orcas Island for nearly 18 years after moving from the hustle and bustle of a large city, Las Vegas, I have a good understanding of why clients choose to live on the San Juan Islands. With nearly 14 years in real estate with the leading broker and my partner, Wally Gudgell, I can assure you we are top notch at helping you negotiate the best deal on selling or finding your next home.
After spending many years boating in the San Juan Islands, my husband and I moved to Orcas Island 9 years ago and have never looked back. What a wonderful place to live! Prior to working at Windermere I worked for the Orcas Island Chamber of Commerce and enjoyed teaching visitors about the island. So many people asked about moving here that I decided it was time for me to help others find their place on Orcas. Working with one of the leading brokers, Wally Gudgell, and his partner Laura Hasselman, has made me appreciate how wonderful it is to help people find their piece of paradise on Orcas. Let us help you find your home in the islands!
