I have lived in Northern California for over 20 years--in the Oroville area since 2002. I have extensive experience buying and selling residential and recreational properties in the area prior to becoming a realtor, which has given me a keen appreciation for the assistance that a professional realtor can provide to their clients.
Lake Oroville and the surrounding area enticed my partner and me to leave the congestion and high cost of the San Francisco Bay Area and move to Oroville to enjoy the natural beauty and many recreational opportunities. Whether biking around the Afterbay, waterskiing on Lake Oroville, or working on our own property, we enjoy the great outdoor lifestyle and terrific climate of the foothills.
I am committed to providing my clients with the same high level of service and professionalism that I expect for myself. I look forward to helping you discover the wonders of this area and just how affordable your dream property can be.
In my eighteen years experience in the real estate industry, I have
become highly skilled in residential appraisal,
have developed detail-oriented transaction coordination
skills, and have above all
grown into an effective marketing specialist for residential properties. I enjoy all facets of this ever-changing business, but especially the fulfillment I get seeing people’s eyes light up when they walk into a space they love.
A real estate transaction can be complex. It requires a skilled professional to help you navigate the market and
best assess your options. My goal is to
empower each and every client
with the information
they need to be able to make the right decisions based on their individual circumstances. There’s no ‘one fit for all’ in this business; making a good match takes
a Realtor dedicated to
your goals with time, hard work and commitment.
Oroville is my hometown. The

My Real Estate career began in 1993 in Hawaii. After living our dream there for several years my husband and I returned to the Mainland so we could watch the grandkids grow up.
One of the unique opportunities of being a successful Realtor is to experience our beautiful country and its people. I have been fortunate to do so in two of my two favorite places: Hawaii 1993-1999 & California 2000 to present.
My love for the foothills and higher elevations surrounding Lake Oroville since 1976 encouraged me to specialize in the outlying foothill communities.
The knowledge I have in wells, septic systems and lot preparation is beneficial to clients for vacant land development. After many years of traveling the roads in the foothills and the surrounding areas I have saved several clients from being lost forever (or so it seems) on these bumpy, dusty, country roads when searching for their dream property of vacant land, residential, farms or ranches.

My career was in corporate information technology. But I decided to quit the
urban rat race and move to the countryside
in 2002 to get more enjoyment out of life.
Butte County is a
wonderful place to enjoy the
great outdoors, with Lake Oroville, the Plumas National Forest, and access to all of Northern Californa.
I've applied my 30+
years experience with
computer systems and an
aptitude for technology
to work in Oroville as a
small business technical
consultant. I keep
on top of the latest
trends in online
marketing and social
media to benefit
Sunset Vista Realty's
clients with the best
possible sales exposure.
