I guess I"m a "COUNTRY GIRL". I grew up on a farm and spent most of my married life on a mixed farm. This is why I love listing and selling farms and acreages.
I began my career as an elementary school teacher ,but after about 6 years I entered the world of SALES . I have sold a lot of different things....things I loved and wanted everyone else to have. I have been a Sales Director in two of the companies I have worked with. I continue with sales because I love meeting new people and having the thrill of finding what THEY WANT.
I love the outdoors so I have a small cabin at a lake where I relax, play golf and have friends in for a bar-be-que. I especially enjoy the birds in my treed yard.
This business keeps me very busy and the best part is the new friends I have made and continue to have contact with.
My three grandsons, 6,10,and 11 all live in the same city and are a joy to my life.
I served a 2 year term on the local council of realtors.
I completed a year at Teacher's College and a second year by correspondence. This Standard Certificate allowed me to teach school. My first school was in the country and had 9 students and 7 grades. Wow! What a learning experience. I taught Elementary grades in Bateman, Swift Current, Regina and my hometown where I went to school.
I enjoy taking classes to learn more about my present interests, so I took several classes about museums,leadership in sales and of course Real Estate.
Living in a small town means "volunteer". I enjoyed working at the local Museum and Craft Shoppe, which I helped establish. It took some time to find my niche after moving to the city, but now enjoy being involved with the church I attend and volunteering at The Centre ,a downtown center for kids and soup kitchen.
I also enjoy heading up the committee for fund raising for the local ABILITY BOWL which our office supports.

FIVE TIPS for FINANCIAL FITNESS
When the time is right for you to buy a home, make sure you are financially fit and eligible for the best possible mortgage rates. Here are our top five tips to boost your "financial fitness."
1. WHIP IT. Whip your credit rating into shape: pay your bills on time ....every time. Keep your oldest credit card for its history.,and make sure it is always paid on time. Try not to apply for any new credit.
2. Follow the 33% rule. Never run up a credit card or line of credit past 33% of it's available limit. If you've got a $3000.00 limit, then $1000.00 is your absolute ceiling.
3. Cash is king! Gather up the maximum down payment possible. The more money you have to put down on a home, the better.
4. Be prepared. Put together a file folder with the following : pay stubs, or proof of self-employment income, list of debts and assets and current bank statements.
5. Start a dialogue. I can provide names of good mortgage brokers for you. Tell them your plans. Find out if you can pre-qualify. This really helps you to know what price range you will be asking you realtor to show you.
This process of qualifying for a mortgage begins long before you decide to buy a home. But if you make a plan to improve your financial fitness.....you will have no shortage of lenders willing to compete for your business and give you the best possible rate.
