In May of 2007, I moved from northern California where I worked as a business manager, to Cody Wyoming. Near the end of 2007 I decided I wanted to do something a bit different, so I began to study for my real estate license. In May 2008 I became a Wyoming REALTOR. Most of my career was spent working for architects, landscape architects, planners and engineers. While I enjoyed my time working with these talented people I am so happy I decided to make a late life change and go into real estate. I love working with people helping them find a place to call home. I do have a passion and energy to partner with my clients to help them not just imagine but realize their dream, find a home to create a space for communing with family and friends. When I am not discovering new properties in and around Cody Wyoming, I love to immerse myself in the outdoors including hiking, golf, bicycling and gardening.
I look forward to helping you achieve your goals whether it is buying your next property or selling your current one.

FOUR SECRETS OF QUICK AND EASY SPRING CLEANING
By using a few timesaving techniques, you can have a dust-free house without spending days spring-cleaning. Author Leslie Reichert, known as "The Cleaning Coach" (www.greencleaningcoach.com), gives the following tips for simplifying spring-cleaning.
1.Instead of spending an entire day washing, drying and ironing all of your curtains and bedding, place your linens in the dryer with a damp rag. while it is essential to get the dust and dirt buildup off, Reichert says this method will remove 90% of the debris and save hours.
2. To clean dust off ceiling fans, place an old pillowcase over the blade. while pulling the pillowcase off the blade push down lightly. This technique removes the dust while eliminating the mess.
3. Wash windows by putting a microfiber cloth (blue microfiber cloths generally have the finest weave) in water, wringing it out and wiping the window. Reichert says this saves the steps of spraying, wiping and drying while achieving streak-free and clean glass.
4. remove the dust from your walls by spritzing water on a microfiber mop and lightly mopping the walls of the room, including behind the couch and over the traditional method of hand washing your walls, and have the same results.
