Hello and thank you for allowing me to introduce myself.

My family and I have been proud to call the greater Austin and Fort Hood area home since moving here in 1988 with the Army. Today, I operate the JB Goodwin-Salado office at 600-A N Main Street. My focus is comprehensive and quality service for both sellers and buyers. To do this, I bring to the table four important assets:

1. Staging:  As an accredited stager, I will work with you to ensure your home is properly presented. Unlike interior decorating, staging focuses on highlighting your home's assets and expanding its appeal to a maximum audience.

2. Photography & Design: This is where more than two decades of journalism come into play.  In the Internet age, photographs are the new "curb appeal." Most buyers tend to begin or augment their search online and will examine photographs of your home. Do you want a great picture of a bed or of the bedroom? I would imagine the latter as it is the house, not the bed, that is for sale. Colorful brochures once the buyers get to the curb, coupled with a comprehensive and concise property description, complete the deal.

3. Public Relations and Institutional Knowledge:  A previous recipient of the Rotary International award for Public Relations, I understand that selling and buying requires more than sticking a sign in the front yard. You cannot offer advice about, sell or find what you do not know - or barely know. With me, you will have three decades of area-wide institutional knowledge, networking and a business background on your side. I stay in touch with the community through memberships in Rotary, Altrusa, Federated Women's Clubs, Chamber of Commerce and the Association of the United States Army - to name a few. You will benefit from my experience as an Army wife and  "frequent mover, buyer & seller."

4. Journalism:  While traveling in the role of Army wife, I rose through the ranks, from community and regional newspapers to international newswire. That career was a perfect complement for the mobile military lifestyle. Settled today in Central Texas, I still use that longtime career to my advantage as a Realtor. How? It is simple. A successful journalist and editor understands the key to success is a balanced and accurate story, properly researched and written on deadline. Those principles apply to real estate. No one wants to arrive at a home advertised as 4 bedrooms or 2,500 square feet, only to discover it is three or 1,500 square feet.  

Let's get together to talk strategy. Stop by my Salado office, or give me a call. If you are a newcomer, I know you will quickly fall in love with this beautiful heart of our great state. My husband retired from the military in April 2001 and we have never entertained a single regret about making Central Texas our post-military/journalism life. And The greater Austin and Fort Hood area is a fantastic place to find success and raise a family. Both of our children are grown and doing well, thanks to the area's great schools. Our daughter is in veterinary medicine and proudly served her country in Iraq while in the National Guard. Our son is a Marine and assigned to that service's most elite helicopter unit.

Raised in southern Africa and Europe, I have found my home in the great state of Texas. In this wonderful land of opportunity, allow me to use my Central Texas institutional knowledge to help you lay the foundation for your many memorable "firsts" with the purchase of your new home.

Thank you and welcome.
