Welcome to my Website

On a personal level, I LOVE Landscaping and being in nature. Our home of 20 years is a modest Cape Cod nestled on the historic Portage Canal. If you visit my home you will most likely smell vanilla/cinnamon, see an occasional bouquet of fresh flowers, be greeted by our lovely Pitbull and see a black streak as the reclusive family cat RUNS for cover. Hopefully, you will enjoy the painted murals that I personally have adorned my walls with. You will hear the laughter of children and realize that our house has the "lived in" look and feel. This is because  I am a single/widowed mother of 3 and grandmom of 2. When Im not working, Im loving on my family or my hobbies.  My family has enjoyed living in Portage for 25 years. We have been very active in the community where we attend River of Life Church. I grew up near Fort Leavenworth, KS where my father and mother developed a 2 phase subdivision & built homes. Growing up in this environment gave me a real appreciation and knowledge of the Real Estate world. 


Professional Skills

Since I grew up in the world of Real Estate as my father/mother built homes, some of which I helped with, I know that everyone has their own individual idea of what "HOME" is. I love to walk through a home with my clients and listen to them envisioning their NEW life in it. Or sharing the aspects that the next owner will LOVE. I can relate to the idea of needing to upgrade to a larger home as the family grows, or downsizing to a smaller nest after the kids have flown the coop. Sometimes it is necessary to take in loved ones as we advance in age and a house with stairs is no longer an option. What about wanting to go "country" after many years of being in the city or relocating with a promotion or career change. When life gives you a "Plot twist" I look forward to helping you find your starter home, next home, income property, farm land, hunting land or perhaps selling and relocating to a place that holds a special place in your heart, or adds a new chapter to life. "I" want to be your Real Estate professional. My goal is to find the perfect fit for you and your family. The market is excellent!! Please contact me ASAP @ 608-742-8284 and let me know how I can serve you. 

Community Involvement

Having lived in Portage for 25 years now, I am quite rooted in this very humble, little, diverse community.  I have raised my daughter, now 27 years old, in the Portage public education system. We enjoyed attending sports, prom & all the "rights of passage" including many years of 4-H. I should add that since Portage is the county seat, the fairgrounds is literally in your backyard. The school campus' are centrally located and when our family visits from out of state they are amazed at the overall convenience and friendliness of the community. It was our desire to homeschool our 2 boys when the time came and there is much support in the community for this as well. There are many diverse denominations when looking for a church to call home. We chose River of Life, a sweet little Southern Baptist church in the center of town. I have been active with teaching children's church and serving on the Worship Team for 2 years now.  Our NEW "state of the art" hospital is also a huge asset to the community with its addition of "Levita" which boasts a great Physical Therapy and Fitness facility and onsite daycare for the DSH staff. I had the privilege of working at the hospital for 6 month prior to entering Real Estate. When my husband passed away in 2013, I started my "bucket list" with joining the local Womens Civic League, housed in the home of a historic Portage Icon, Ms. Zona Gale-Breeze, we are very immersed in preserving heritage, community service, fundraising and two scholarships each year.  That same year, I also began my political career as a City Alderperson, If you live or purchase a home in Ward 1, Im your gal. If any of this appeals to you, I hope you hire me to help you find your next home in this historic little town. The "Portage" is positioned on two rivers and rich in Native American History. Call or text me now, (608) 742 8284.        

My Community

There is a section of Wisconsin that runs along the beautifully landscaped Wisconsin River. I happen to think the areas near the Historic communities of Portage, Baraboo, Merrimac and Wisconsin Dells are some of the MOST gorgeous!!  We have a wealth of activities to do here from winter ski/snowmobile to summer swimming/boating sports and hiking/birdwatching in the spring and Fall.  We have great country land for farming/hunting available, as well.  Cascade Mountain, Christmas Mountain, Several golf courses, and the Wisconsin Dells many indoor/outdoor waterparks just to name a few places that are close enough to do day trips or weekend getaways. Lets not forget Baraboo with its Circus World Museum and real life Big Tent Circus performances, and Merrimac with Devils Head State Park and Beautiful, everchanging, tranquil sanctuary of Parfreys Glen.  You are within 3 hours drive to Door County, Horicon Marsh, and Frank Lloyd Wrights House on the Rock. We are also very blessed with many lakes and beaches here in South Central Wisconsin. Our economic growth is swinging in an upward direction as well. The housing market is GREAT!! Now is a SUPERB time to make this area YOUR NEW HOME. Call or txt me at (608) 742 8284.
