I have been a licensed REALTOR® since 2002 holding the Graduate REALTOR Institute (GRI), and Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) designations. I completed studies for my Brokers license in October 2007.
I started in the industry with the master developer of Fountain Hills AZ, MCO Properties. Here I coordinated with the marketing and public relations departments as well as the charitable contributions program. During this time, I was exposed to the land development side of the business.
Then I went to work for Sonoran Lifestyle Real Estate, starting the brokerage from the ground up with the Designated Broker/Owner. I worked side-by-side with the Broker and managing the office, handling listing and sale files, sales coordinator for the agents, and event planning. I then went into full time sales as an agent in 2004 listing and selling custom, semi-custom, condominiums, resale homes, lender owned, short sales, and multi-family zoned land.
I relocated to the east valley of Phoenix metro in 2005 working with Sonoran Lifestyle and then RE/MAX focusing on the same as Fountain Hills with an emphasis in lender owned properties. I continued business in Fountain Hills and Scottsdale with more attention to the Chandler, Gilbert, Gold Canyon, Maricopa, Mesa, Apache Junction, Queen Creek, and San Tan Valley areas.
I then started my own brokerage, Carlson Real Estate Specialists, in May of 2017 and happy to report that it has been wonderful!
Prior to holding a real estate license, I worked in a different aspect of real estate as a junior escrow officer in the title and escrow side of the business. I gained invaluable experience in customer service while employed by Southwest Airlines as a ticket and operations agent.
I hold seven RE/MAX Club awards: Executive Club 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2013 and 2015 and 100 Percent Club 2011 for the recognition of outstanding sales performance and achievements in the real estate profession.
