My career in property management began over 30 years ago. Initially, I owned a carpet cleaning business that serviced the property management industry. I came to work for Bell-Anderson & Assoc., LLC, AMO® in May of 1986, first as a bookkeeper, then a property manager, and now an owner. In September of 2002, my husband, Tim, and I purchased Bell-Anderson. In August of 2018 my daughter and I purchased Willow Properties.

I have had the opportunity during my career to manage homeowner's associations, single family dwellings, small multi-family complexes and a few commercial properties. I have earned four professional property management designations (MPM®, CPM®, RMP®, and ARM®). I serve as an instructor on the national faculty for the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM®) and the National Association of Residential Property Managers (NARPM®). In 2010 I had the distinct honor of serving as the National President for NARPM®.

Oftentimes I have the opportunity to go out into the community and assist others with their real estate management needs. As an owner of Willow Properties. I will assure all that come in contact with our company the best in professional property management as well as the best customer service that we can possibly offer. Give us a call if you are looking for professional property management services.

I have been in the property management business for 20 years. I have been helping my mom, Vickie run a very successful PM company in South King County and in 2018 we purchased Willow Properties. I met John and Dorothy of Willow Properties while doing some extra education through NARPM (National Association of Residential Property Managers). I have always loved catching up with John and Dorothy and hearing their opinions and wisdom when it came to Property Management. When we were approached by John & Dorothy about purchasing Willow Properties we weren't even in the market to purchase a PM company but I personally knew what amazing property managers & owners John and Dorothy were. Also the team that they had assembled were top notch so we couldn't pass up on purchasing Willow Properties.

In my off time I enjoy time with my husband and 2 kiddos still at home & 1 graduated from CWU in the Spring of 2020. We spend a lot of time working on our yard together, traveling back and forth to our family cabin near the columbia river and being on our boat.

At Willow Properties I make sure your bills are paid, your statements are uploaded or mailed and your funds are disbursed timely. I am licensed as a Managing Broker in Washington State and perform office manager duties to keep our office running smoothly with day to day tasks.

I’m a Property Management Professional, Army Veteran, and a passionate advocate for those working toward financial freedom. Through my extensive professional banking experience, I discovered how fulfilling it was to be part of my clients’ financial success. I helped others get behind the wheel of their first car, refinance their home to save hundreds each month, or start the business they’d envisioned for years. At Willow Properties, I am able to do this on a grand — and exciting — scale. You certainly have great options when seeking any property management company in the Puget Sound area. But if you’re looking for a true partner with diverse experience, a dedication to inclusion, and a unique ability to seek creative solutions, I’m here to work with you.

Whether you’re searching for someone to manage a single property, are looking for a company that can handle a large real estate portfolio, we’ll work together to find the best solution for your investments. Roadblocks may come up and we’ll face them. I’m going to work for your interests first, connecting you with the people and solutions you need to make the right decisions. When you work with me, your ultimate success comes before the transaction every time.

When I’m not working with clients, you’ll probably find me with my English Bulldogs or planning my next big travel adventure. My diverse and unique professional and personal experiences have given me an exciting opportunity to relate to others in new and significant ways. I look forward to working with you!
