I am an independent consultant with Rodan + Fields. We have a dermatology based skin care line that is changing aging skin. We have something for the most common skin care needs: fine lines/wrinkles, sun damage/dark spots, acne and sensitivity. We are partnered with the two most reputable doctors in skin care. They are world renowned for their work with Proactiv and there is no better time to partner with them as we begin our global expansion. I am always looking for people who have skin care concerns or people who want to consider business ownership, working from home. We are not a party company and we do not stock inventory. We have a 60 day, empty bottle money back guarantee so there is no risk in trying it out!
I am a member of the Illinois Association of Realtors, the National Association of Realtors, the Realtor Association of Southwestern Illinois as well as the Great Ladies of Waterloo (GLOW). I takes pride in the community where I grew up, live and work. I continue my education so that I may provide extensive knowledge about the real estate industry and our local marketplace. I am a seasoned FULL TIME real estate agent with 11 plus year of experience and knowledge!
My success in real estate is attributed to my hard work and dedication to my clients in hopes of going above and beyond for all their needs. By building lasting relationships and providing top-notch service, many of my clients continue to use my services and/or refer others to me. My goal is to make Buying and Selling a home a fun and exciting process, while making it as smooth as possible. I especially love working with first time home buyers due to their eagerness and excitement! In addition, I also work with buyers and sellers who are looking to upgrade or downsize into another home! My experience is in Residential Real Estate, Re-sale, New Construction, Lots and Land. Because a new home is often the most important and substantial purchase people make, I would be happy to help you find your way home!
I am a 35-year-old Allstate agent who has been in the insurance business for 7 years. I have also been a Sr. LSP and trainer who has worked with a number of Allstate agencies in IL and MO to get them off the ground, and I finally landed in my favorite place on Earth, Waterloo, IL. We just opened our agency Nov 1st in the old Patrick Insurance building right in front of the Junior High and I am excited and eager to get the word out about having an Allstate in town.
I bought a house last year and currently live in Columbia with; my daughter, boyfriend, dog who acts like a child, and a cat that acts like a dog. In my free time I LOVE to talk to people and generally just enjoy being around likeminded women who care about each other and are pillars of society. I firmly believe we need more empowering women coming together to make sure we all stay uplifted and grounded at the same time. I think GLOW seems like an amazing thing to be a part of and I am very grateful for Sahra Linnemann for inviting me to the first lunch I went to just a little bit ago. I am so excited to attend more functions and be a part of this amazing group.
