THE SKY IS MY OCEAN
I am a LA girl who grew up on the beaches of Southern California. I loved swimming and surfing in the ocean. My mother was a successful commercial real estate broker in Newport Beach, California and I inherited the Realtor DNA. I graduated from California State University Fullerton with a teaching credential but was more interested in learning about all phases of real estate transactions. For several years I worked for title companies, escrow companies, and did loan processing. I got my real estate license in California and went to work for Re/Max South County in Dana Point where my husband Phil also worked. We lived in the Laguna Beach area, an art colony at the ocean. In 1988 we decided to purchase a home in Taos, an art colony in the mountains. Also a great place to enjoy the outdoor landscapes and activities of the Southwest, not to mention the skiing. We moved from one art colony to another. I love the desert southwest and living in the Sangre de Cristos, the southernmost range of the Rocky Mountains. Here we are blessed with fiery sunrises and sunsets, and fantastic skies with many variations of cumulus clouds. At night, bright white stars fill the black skies. I do not miss the ocean. For me it is all about the sky. The sky is my ocean.
