I moved to Oregon in 2003 when my husband and I started our family. Upon having our first daughter, while she was still swaddled like a burrito, we looked at a map of the US, discussed our likes and wants, and relocated to the Rogue Valley. Having worked and lived in a variety of places, both in the US and abroad, we chose the Rogue Valley as our ultimate spot to settle down. We fell in love with the schools, walkability, theaters and arts, well-kept parks, proximity to hikes and ski slopes, and the land itself. I am an enthusiastic member of the community and forever touting the beauty of living in the Rogue Valley. Looking back, it was the best decision I could have made and life here in Ashland just keeps getting better.
I have made it my mission to get involved in our schools, our Jewish temple, moms clubs, our neighborhood, and youth activities. I do it because I enjoy it and believe in our community. Friends and neighbors jokingly refer to me as the unofficial mayor of Ashland for my involvement in all things local, my visibility around town and my desire to connect people. It is a title I wear with pride.
Since 2007 my husband and I have been actively buying and selling homes and multi-dwelling units both here in Oregon and out of state. We have fixed and sold homes, rehabbed historic houses in the Railroad District, managed a portfolio of very different types of properties, and worked through the design process for new construction. I understand how intimidating and complicated some of these processes can be which is why I became a real estate agent. I empathize with those facing a real estate decision and I hope friends and clients can learn from my real estate experience, both as someone who has built a nest for my family in Ashland and as someone who is still an active investor.
My husband, two daughters and I like to camp, travel, read, rehab homes, practice Spanish and enjoy the simple things in life.
