I have been a professional realtor specializing in residential property since December 2000. Having been born and raised in Bemidji gives me expertise in these tranquil north woods. Most people living in our beautiful northland love fishing, bicycling/walking the many trails, scuba diving, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, running, hunting, camping and many other outside activities, myself included. This is why I choose to live in Bemidji, the place I call home. I also enjoy spending time with my family, playing guitar, karate, personal fitness and making wine.
I have called Bemidji home since 1978. My hobbies include cooking, baking, kayaking, gardening, walking, running, dancing tap, jazz and ballet. Family is important to us, our 2 adult children and 7 grandchildren are a blessing in our lives. After being in the food service industry for many years I chose a change and a challenge into real estate with husband Harry. I have always been committed to serving excellence to my customers in Bemidji as owner of the Paul Bunyan Sub Shop (32 ½ years) and the Cabin Coffeehouse & Café (13 years). We became involved with real estate in 1994 when we started investing in income property. My years as a business owner has given me experience working hard long hours with honesty and integrity, which I provide for all my real estate customers.
We believe in supporting the community and the many local nonprofits such as Shared Vision Ojibwe signage, Bemidji Rotary, Loop the Lake Bike Festival, Bike MN, Bike Bemidji, United Way, Boys and Girls Club, Evergreen Shelter, Bemidji Food Shelf, Humane Society, Headwaters Science Center, Bemidji Watermark Art Center, Save the Carnegie Library, Photos with Santa, Bemidji Downtown Alliance, Bemidji Toastmasters, and many local benefits that are held throughout the year.
