I’ll never forget the first moment I stepped off the ferry onto Bainbridge Island. I had just run through several blocks of downtown Seattle in my cowgirl boots, dodging buses and bike couriers all to catch the 1:10 ferry for a first date. It was a Friday, in the Fall of 1990. The ride over was barely two dollars. Score. It was worth every penny in spades; views of the Seattle city skyline receded and the vanilla ice-cream-topped Olympic mountains approached, all with salt-soaked fresh air in between. I loved Bainbridge Island and I hadn’t even arrived yet. The ferry kissed the pilings cheek to cheek as it glided gently to a slow stop. Those darn heavy double ferry doors pushed opened to the outside and Bam! I was slammed with the smell of that sweet, salt air! I wanted to live right there where I stood and forever smell that fresh air.
Two years after that first date, I married that man and moved to Bainbridge Island. Romance brought me here, Bainbridge Island has kept me here. After 3 children, 3 dogs and thousands of trips to the island’s only two grocery stores, my marriage ended my children are nearly grown and gone, but the salty smooth island air remains the same. I have learned what it is like to live through tides of change and try to hold onto what is important: family, friends, community and your home. I am compassionate and ready to help you with your turn of events. Whether you want to own your piece of Bainbridge Island or need to sell a slice of it, my decades of living here along with my connection to people, knack for sales and knowledge of landscape and interior design will leave you with more answers than questions.
I am your “go-to” redheaded realtor on the Rock. Let’s make a date!
