With over 14 years in the real estate industry, I have gathered many tools to assist my clients in their home buying and selling success. I have a strong background in mortgage lending and I am an expert in country/equestrian properties. I live in the Loomis area with my three wonderful boys, amazing hubby, and our horses, dogs, chickens, and goats.

Besides serving as a Director for the Loomis Basin Education Foundation, and the PTC President at Penryn School, I also spearheaded the creation of an outdoor education space for the Penryn Students to take advantage of the forested surroundings and year round stream on the school grounds. Giving back to our community is important to me!

I strive to create an amazing partnership with my clients. I use my strong relationships in the industry, my motivating drive, and my contagious, enthusiastic personality to help my clients get what they want. Working with my mother and business partner, we have created a dynamic team approach! I would love the opportunity to work with you soon!

As a REALTOR® and former educator, I bring years of experience in not only helping families with their educational decisions but finding that dream home near the school of their choice. I have partnered with my REALTOR® daughter, Darcie Stratton, to make sure that together we can make your real estate dreams happen! This collaboration has been a key to our success as we receive many referrals from our satisfied clients.

Giving back in our community and making it stronger is one of our priorities. Both Darcie and I have served on the Loomis Basin Education Foundation and served our local school district as Co-Chairs of the LBEF Holiday Home Tours. The Annual Home Tour brings in thousands of dollars for our schools and students.

In addition, I have served on the Board of Directors for Placer County Association of REALTORS (PCAR) for 5 years and was recently Honored as 2021 PCAR REALTOR of the Year. Just recently I was also honored by my peers to be elected as 2023 President Elect of the California Women’s Council of REALTORS, this is an organization that provides professional development and networking with REALTORS all over the United States.
