I am a broker and owner of Home Realty & Land Co. I was raised in the area and got my start in the real estate business with a mortage banking company in Berkeley, CA appraising wine grape vineyards in Napa and permanent crops in Central California. Upon moving back to the area in the late 70's, I concentrated on agricultural land sales and farm management. I am a accredited member (AFM) of the American Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers. Home Realty is at the cutting edge of being able to service your real estate needs and I would greatly enjoy helping you with your interests whether it be residental, commercial or agricultural lands.

I was born and raised right here in Porterville, attended Porterville High School and Porterville College where I received my Associates in Science in Accounting. I then moved to Fresno to finish my schooling at Fresno State where I received my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with an emphasis in Finance. It was during this time I met my husband and our courtship began. While I enjoyed living in Fresno I missed the “small town” atmosphere of Porterville, soon after graduating I moved “HOME “  to be closer to family, eventually  getting married, thus starting my/our adventures . After moving home I followed my dream of working in the accounting departments of big corporate offices, it wasn’t long,  before I found that I liked the feel and environment of small boutique offices over the corporate world, luckily stumbling upon  Home Realty and Land Co. Starting as a part time bookkeeper, working my way to office manager, to broker associate, to partner in Full House Property Management, and now I can proudly say Owner/Broker of Full House Property Management in addition to still being office manager and Broker Associate/Realtor with Home Realty and Land Co.

So while I wear many hats– I enjoy and work hard to help Owners, Investors and Renters have a smooth and pleasurable Real Estate experience. And would love to help you in yours!

Family is a high priority for me and I am no stranger to Porterville. I was born in Porterville, but raised and attended school in Grass Valley in Northern California. Returning each summer to visit family, gave me a love of the area. Returning to the area 1986, I established roots in the Ducor area. Soon after I married and began family, raising my two children, Ashton and Shawn, on the family’s cattle ranch. 

The family business and children have kept me active in the community. Over the years, I have volunteered with the local 4-H clubs, and FFA chapters, been blessed to enjoy my passion for cooking by doing personal catering all the while maintaining my career (30 years – jeesh) in cosmetology. 

As I expand my career and venture into real estate I look forward to helping friends, family and the people in the community to help them fulfill their dreams of home (or ranch) ownership. I believe Home Realty and Land has the experience, reputation and hometown feel that enables me to excel in this new adventure.
