My background: Education and Service

I started my real estate career at Coldwell Banker Gundaker in 1996 after a career in elementary education and years of volunteer work in the Parkway School District in St. Louis County. Having raised two sons, Scott and Brett, in Parkway schools, I understand the value of a vibrant, participatory school district. This background suits a career in real estate.

I am especially proud and grateful to have received the Pillar of Parkway Award, Parkway School District's highest honor, as a volunteer. To me, public service played into the development of my service-first approach to real estate.

My steady and successful climb to the 98th percentile of the Coldwell Banker Gundaker brokerage was built upon hard work, professionalism and honesty.
