Clear communication and genuine care perfectly matched with work ethic and attention to detail.

Clear communication and genuine care are the backbone of my work process. A researcher at heart, I enjoy providing my customers and clients with the highest level of connections, information, and clarity needed to navigate the housing market. I stay up-to-date with real estate trends and the strategies needed to succeed.

I was a recipient of the 2022 Excellence in Professionalism Award by the Door County Board of REALTORS. Currently, I am involved with the Door County Board of REALTORS as a Director, and as a member of various Committees: Marketing Committee (acting as Chair), Education Committee, Advocacy Committee, and Professional Standards Committee. I am also involved with the Wisconsin REALTORS Association as a member of the Legal Action Committee.

Continuing education is a strong focus of mine, and at this time I have completed various Designations and Certifications. The Graduate REALTOR Institute (GRI) symbol is the mark of a real estate professional who has made the commitment to provide a high level of professional services; the Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®) designation focuses on working directly with buyer-clients at every stage of the home-buying process; the Seller Representative Specialist (SRS) designation is the premier credential in seller representation designed to elevate professional standards and enhance performance; and the Pricing Strategy Advisor (PSA) certification is specifically designed to enhance skills in pricing properties, creating CMAs, working with appraisers, and guiding clients.

I am grateful to be affiliated with True North Real Estate, as we believe there is nothing more rewarding than helping our clients find their true Door County homes, and we approach our work with commitment and integrity. Our team is proud to be involved in the many aspects of our community, from environmental work to the arts to fair housing and human services. By living, working, and giving in Door County, we strive to preserve the well-being of the place we all call home.

A little bit about me:

Why Door County? I was in my last year of Law School in Brazil when I first visited the Peninsula. It was love at first sight. I spent almost a year here (filled with many adventures and new friends). I went back home to graduate and moved here soon after. It’s been almost 18 years, and I haven’t looked back. Door County is my home.

Why Real Estate? I was extremely lucky to work at a real estate law office as an assistant after moving to Door County. There I got a taste of real estate and I knew I would love the work. My background in law paired with my creativity cemented the idea that real estate was the path for me. I wasn’t wrong: it fits me perfectly.

What do I love (besides real estate)? When I’m not working, I enjoy being home with my family. I love art and poetry — and you can find some of my work right here on my blog. History is a passion of mine, and so are audiobooks. I am a Girl Scout leader for second graders, and we have so much fun together. I thoroughly enjoy the cycles of nature and find great joy in every season here in Door County.
