I was born in the Philippines and raised in Northern California. At the age of 23, I moved to Nevada to begin a career in Finance at the Wynn, a luxury resort and casino. I have lived in big cities my entire life, so I’ve grown accustomed to the everyday “hustle and bustle” lifestyle. While I enjoy the fast–paced nature of day-to-day living, I am drawn to peaceful sceneries. There were moments in Nevada when I paused from the vibrant life of Vegas and recalled my first visit to Salida. I recalled the warmth in locals’ smiles, the pristine mountain views, the soothing sounds of the river, the crisp air, and birds singing overhead. Salida’s natural charm and beautyfilled me with a sense of connection and awe that I had not experienced living in before. Just four months after my first visit to Salida, I packed up and decided to start a new life here.
During my job search, I met Wes and Nancy Hill, former owners of “Wes Hill &Associates,” and Deonne, their manager, as they were in the transition of relocating their office to 135 F Street. They have been so generous and welcoming. Observing each broker associate here at Colorado Summit Realty handle transactions professionally and with integrity inspired my passion for real estate. I chose to be a broker because it is inspiring; because it allows me to make a profound impact for homeowners in their search for a place that brings comfort, security, and a sense of accomplishment. As a Broker, my first priority is to make each client pleased and experience as stress-free homebuying process.
I aspire to understand each client’s specific wants and needs, and to be available any time of the day to respond promptly and thoughtfully to any questions or concerns. In addition to being a Broker, I am also a professional home stager with several years of experience, and I am a Public Notary. With me, your every real estate transaction will be conducted with ease. Whetheryou are looking to sell at the right price or buy your dream home—I will enhance your competitive edge. When I am not assisting my real estate clients, I enjoy teaching children, volunteering where needed, and participating in outdoor sports. The views are magical here; there is a true aesthetic power of scenery in uplifting our lives. I am grateful every day to live in such a gorgeous community, and I desire to make my home, your home.
