“I have lived in the rural community of Edwards for the past 16 years and for the last 7 have run a small minifarm. I love the rural feel and the self-sufficient lifestyle that one embraces when they “live in the sticks”.I enjoy growing and raising my own food while raising a variety of animals ranging from chickens, goats, sheep and even steer. I like getting my hands in the soil and tending to my fruits, vegetables.

I am a firm believer in being client oriented: I answer and return calls. I find answers when I don’t have them. I listen and I hear what you are saying. I will be your advocate, and will work tirelessly to help to you and your family buy or sell your home.

I look forward to helping you find your new lifestyle here in the Lake of the Ozarks and Truman Lake area.”

My Mission Statement:

My philosophy is simple: clients come first. I pledge to be in constant communication with my clients, keeping them fully informed throughout the entire buying or selling process. I believe that if you’re not left with an amazing experience, I haven’t done my job. I don’t measure success through achievements or awards, but through the satisfaction of my clients, which are my friends.
