Hello, I would like to take a moment to share a little about myself. If you know more about me as a person and about what motivates me to work hard, then you will know that I am a real estate agent who does not expect your business, only the opportunity to "apply for the job."

To know me, you’ve got to understand the path I’ve taken. I was born and raised on the Central Coast and first moved away to attend college at Sonoma State. After graduation, I found myself a little restless and directionless.  My then boyfriend Max (husband now) and I moved around a lot – looking for our future.  Funny thing is, after five years and five moves, we decided we wanted our future to be here on the central coast where we were both born and raised. We’ve settled in a little house in Morro Bay where we are kept busy with our two daughters and our seven-pound Yorkie, Wrigley.  

It might seem strange to move so much only to wind up right back where I started.  But the way I see it, it's less about the actual travel and more about the journey.  I’ve been in the service industry since I was seventeen years old.  I’ve worked as a hostess, a server, or a bartender across California and on the east coast.  Some were big corporate chains.  Some were little independent establishments.  But all of them put me in an excellent place to interact with people. The years I’ve spent in the industry brought me in contact with all kinds of guests and taught me how to interact with every possible kind of person.  My favorite part was the ability to provide exceptional customer service—to recognize a regular guest, to make them feel comfortable, and to remind them that they are valued.

I bring this same attitude into my work in real estate.  It’s a natural outlet for the consistently excellent service that has become so ingrained in me after my years in restaurants. My expectations for myself are high, and I always strive to provide service tailored to each client’s individual needs.

I started out in real estate as an assistant to my mom (Lorraine Sterkel), who’s been a Realtor for the past 40 years.  She has been a great teacher and resource to me in learning this industry.  I am grateful for her experience and knowledge.  After obtaining my license in 2012, I’ve been working as a Realtor and Property Manager trying to build my own clientele and reputation.

If you work with me, you can expect me to be honest, generous, and straightforward. As a local of the Central Coast, and someone who loves the area, I bring a great deal of local knowledge to the table. I will work hard for you, and I care the whole time.  When you or someone you know is in need of an agent, I hope you will give me the opportunity to interview for the job.
