Elizabeth is a dedicated real estate professional that loves making clients’ real estate dreams come true. As someone who has relocated numerous times in her life, Elizabeth understands the needs and challenges of families who are going through the transition of a move – whether it is across town or across the country. Elizabeth instinctively has the knack to always know the best way to meet, and exceed, her client’s needs and expectations.
She and her family currently reside in the South Metro. In a previous life, Elizabeth was a professional musician: a conductor, a teacher, and a college professor. She has conducted choirs from young children to high school students to college/university students to adult church choirs. She still likes to sing and occasionally plays the piano (not very well). Elizabeth’s skills as a musician and a teacher make her an excellent REALTOR®. Serving others in any one of these roles requires one very important skill: listening. Elizabeth will listen carefully to your needs and help you get where you need and want to go.
