I am passionate about customer service and strive to go above and beyond the status quo. I became a Realtor® at the end of 2006 in Denver, Colorado. My family relocated to Fountain Hills, Arizona in September 2010 and I was able to immerse myself in the Fountain Hills, Rio Verde, and Scottsdale market.
My family consists of my husband, Brady Luke and three children, Wes, Mitch and Emma ranging from 25 - 14 years old. We also consider our four dogs (3 were local rescues) part of our family.
Volunteering, hiking, biking and traveling are my sanity checks.
I thank the good Lord for the ability to offer friendly and reliable help to folks with one of the most significant purchases in their lives. I appreciate your trust and confidence in me.
My family and I have 4 dogs who now belong to our pack. 3 are rescues.
First was Chloe, a Pomeranian/Chihuahua mix (PomChi) that actually was adopted from a home in Colorado. She is the matriarch of the pack.
Next we rescued Mini, a tri-colored chihuahua. She was found at the skate park in Fountain Hills and taken to Rescue Pals in Fountain Hills. She is my daughter Emma's first puppy. Emma trained and worked with Mini to the point that when the dog hears Velcro, she comes running to see which outfit she gets to wear. Mini was struck by a rattlesnake in our back yard on St. Patrick's day, 2016. She made a full recovery. You can watch one of the interviews about her if you are interested by clicking HERE . If you have a dog, and live in Arizona, I recommend Partners Dog Training in Cave Creek to work with you and your dog to help prevent your dog from being struck.
A year and a half after rescuing Mini, Sayer, a Belgian Malinois came into our lives through Rescue Pals of Fountain Hills. He was around 1 year old and the sweetest boy. My husband, Brady, agreed to have him as a foster and we were not to buy anything for him while he was with us. Well that first night, Brady went out and bought him a new collar and thick plush bed! Two days later, he contacted the rescue to find out how he could adopt him. Sayer's job is watching our fence line and is great at letting us know when coyotes or javalina are at our property. He is a great addition!
Now for the fourth. Kyra, a Doberman Pinscher, came to our family in August of 2016. Emma, who was 12 at the time, did research on different breeds, found a local rescue - Desert Harbor Doberman Rescue – and contacted them to fill out forms and do a meet and greet. Since adopting Kyra in August, Emma has done extensive training with this dog - from basic obedience to service dog training. Kyra is a loving, obedient, delightful addition to our pack as well.
Dobermans, in my opinion, are the perfect blend of German Shepherds and Rottweilers as I used to train and show both. I will definitely adopt another Doberman when the time comes.
Also, a shameless plug for my 13 year old daughter. She is an amazing dog trainer at this young age!
All this to say, Pets are like family. If you have been considering a pet, do research the breed(s) - google can be a decent resource. Also remember - your adopted friend won't forget what you did for them - giving them a loving home with shelter, walks, food and more! Consider adopting instead of buying your next "best friend".
