Get to Know Me

Hello and ¡Buenos días! I founded my bilingual real estate team, Heart and Homes/Corazón y Casas, to ensure that both our English and Spanish speaking communities had a Realtor® who can communicate fluently and represent their best interests time and time again.

My philosophy blends perfectly with Mode’s commitment to client education. I listen to my clients, accurately interpret contracts and financing terms (in Spanish or English!), and can demystify U.S. real estate procedures and customs for everyone. I also understand the potential need for DACA or ITIN financing and know lenders who help with those processes.

I love language and culture. I’ve taught Spanish and English professionally. I’ve traveled to Mexico, Spain, and Costa Rica. I’ve also lived or worked throughout south central Wisconsin—from Baraboo to Janesville—and know the area’s property markets well. And I’m extremely lucky to have built close relationships with my clients over the years, attending home blessings, weddings, and more carne asadas than I can remember!

Outside of real estate, I spend lots of time with family, especially my grandson, and I love to travel wherever there are waves, where I find perspective on life unlike anywhere else.

Let’s communicate about your next real estate venture. I look forward to meeting you!
