About Willowdale Realty Team
I opened Willowdale Realty & Dev Co. in 1992, to better serve my clients. Our team of realtors® truly love our career choice of being Realtors®. We are all long time residents of the community and enjoy sharing our love for our community with everyone moving into our area. For the most part, when people sell their homes, they continue to choose to live in the community. Our area is unique with over 5500 acres of state land for boating; skiing; hunting; biking; swimming; camping-with your families or your horse. The schools in our area are Blue Ribbon. They have most all of the options available in metropolitan areas, along with options which are unique to country areas including Equestrian teams; 4-H programs; along with golfing, football, swimming, baseball and so much more. The Metamora Hunt area has a long history in our area. We have so many options for those who live in our area including several golf courses; private and public all sports lakes; health clubs; great restaurants; shopping; churches; sports clubs; PollyAnna trails (rails to trails); winter sports to name just a few. My husband and I love riding our Harley Davison through the many small country towns.
I've lived all of my life in the Brandon/Oxford area and attended college near Lexington, KY. I'm an associate real estate broker and have my SRES, ABR and will be soon completing my CRS designations. These are all designations which require additional classes and/or extensive closed sales. My husband and I live with our children on a small farm with our dog, several horses and chickens. My community involvements include coaching our equestrian teams for both junior and high school; 4-H leader and I'm also a CPR instructor. I enjoy working with first time buyers and experienced buyers and sellers helping them find their dream homes or investments in our wonderful area.
I love to work with customers and clients who need to sell or buy a home in Oakland, Macomb & Lapeer counties. My training as a Senior Real Estate specialist allows me to work with couples and/or families who need to make transitions in their lives; aged parents, downsizing or relocation. My volunteer activities include: Linked Hearts which is emergency food distribution for residents in Dryden Township and as an Addison Township Park Ranger. I love water aerobics and the friends I meet at the Rochester Older Persons Commission (OPC).
