My husband and I decided to make Bainbridge Island our home in 1993. Having been here now over 20 years, can we now call ourselves locals? Regardless, we certainly love this Island and its surrounds as much as anyone. Having spent 10 years in the corporate world Buying and Selling Pulp, 14 years as Founder and Lead Interior Designer at Indigo Architecture & Interiors, 6 years as a Licensed Real Estate Broker, 3 years as an Executive Recruiter, I have the unique ability to combine strong business principles with an innate sense of design. Real Estate on Bainbridge Island is a practice in art. It is not a cookie cutter community. Finding the perfect match between Buyer and Seller, Investor and Property is a combination of checking off the boxes that include quantitative needs and understanding what makes a beautiful life. When that connection manifests itself into a closed transaction and dreams become reality, I find it intensely satisfying.

I KNOW BAINBRIDGE!
As a third generation Islander you might say I have seen and experienced some changes and growth on Bainbridge Island. As a kid I picked strawberries in the fields where Meadowmeer is now located. As a teenager I canned strawberries at the current site of the Pavilion. I remember the first stop light being installed and of course the first McDonald’s where “Crazy Eric’s Hamburgers” once stood.
Customer Service is in the genes! My grandfather was a Swedish immigrant who was involved in the startup of the Island “Mosquito” ferry boat system which got Islanders where and when they needed to go! My father served the Real Estate needs of Islanders since 1953 until he retired in 2010. Would you like to hear some stories?
I have been serving customers most of my post schooling life. After graduating from Santa Clara University with a degree in Business Marketing my career has included 20 years with Nordstrom and 16 years in the Real Estate Profession.
As you embark on your defining journey of either buying or selling a home I look forward to serving you with my knowledge and expertise of Bainbridge Island and Customer Service.
