Recognized For Working in the Deaf Community

Recognized For Working in the Deaf Community

We are only into April and this year has already been full of surprises for me. After working in the real-estate business  for 25 years and working along side the Deaf Community, I was recognized by Realtor Magazine and 303 Magazine.

This is a great accomplishment, not only for me but for the Deaf Community. It brought to light how a lot of Deaf people get taken advantage of by Realtors and Mortgage Lenders because of the communication barrier. This is why I do what I do. I am one of the few bilingual ASL Agents in Colorado and I will do everything I can do make sure my deaf clients are taken care of and are getting the best service possible on all ends.

Please take time to read the articles and contact me if you need help buying, selling or refinancing.
