Combining Real Estate and Architecture to Deliver Unique Solutions and Real Value

I have always found residential real estate intriguing, and could never deny the lure of an open house just so I could get a glimpse of the architecture and design. This passion led me to a career in architecture, and after getting a Bachelor and Master degree in architecture, and starting Indigo Design + Build + Renovate with my husband, getting my real estate license seemed like an obvious next step. With a lot of research, my attention to detail, and creativity, I can help find hidden value in any home, and make your dream home a reality. 

Personal Background

In the past few years, my life has been a whirwind of changes. I married a military man, who deployed two weeks after we married, finished my Master degree, moved to Saugatuck from Chicago, and just had our first child. On top of all those changes, I decided that starting a new career as a REALTOR® would help me better connect with my new hometown, and it made me fall more in love with the west coast of Michigan. This beautiful area further encourages my active lifestyle by always enticing me to practice yoga, go kayaking, walk the beach, or explore one of the many national parks close by.

Community Involvement

One of the things I like to get involved with is with my church, Community Church of Douglas, and our church Life Group. When I am not busy doing that, I am a frequent vistor to the Felt Masion and like to dine at the local restuarants. However, that is just a few of many activities in the area. For more information on local events and attractions, check out the following websites.
