I am a lifelong Skagitonian. I love this area, and know it well. My husband Matt and I have two amazing, active sons. I have a degree in physiological psychology from Western Washington University, and spent my first "work life" in retail. After twenty years behind the retail counter, I was ready for a new challenge. Real Estate has always been a part of my life. Many a dinner conversation revolved around a house my Dad was listing. Sunday drives in our family were business: we logged many miles scouting property. My Dad's been in real estate as long as I can remember, and always shared his love and enthusiasm for this industry with me. In 2006 I became a licensed real estate agent. I'm proud and excited to be a part of two great real estate families - both my own personal family and the Windermere family. As an agent, I am focused on continuing my real estate education and developing partnerships with service providers in related industries.
I am an active community volunteer and supporter. I regularly volunteer at my sons' school, and serve on the Parent Group. I am the secretary of the Skagit Valley College Foundation's Board of Governors, and a board member of the North Puget Sound Association of Realtors (NPSAR).
My goal is to provide you with the professional expertise you need to make wise real estate investments and the exceptional customer service you want to make the transactions enjoyable. I want you to know what's happening at each step in the process, whether buying or selling, and to always understand your options. With over twenty years of customer service experience, I know how to anticipate issues and how to handle complications. I don't want you to just be satisfied with my performance - I want you to be thrilled with it, so that you can't wait to tell your friends and co-workers how great it was to work with me! My career depends on your positive experience.
As a full-service real estate agent, you'll get my attention, my time, and my knowledge. You'll also enjoy the benefits and the knowledge of the Windermere company and its family of agents. I'm very proud to work for a great company like Windermere, and also for two great REALTORS - my dad, Jim Scott, and my brother and managing broker, Josh Scott. Their professionalism and expertise are unparalleled. We use continuing education, cutting-edge technologies, and constant communication to provide you with professional, personal service.
I take my real estate education seriously. While nothing beats the experience that comes with being a daily practitioner, I am proud to have earned the following awards, designations and certifications:
~North Puget Sound Association of Realtors (NPSAR) 2008 Rookie of the Year
~New Home Specialist - Chaffey Homes, 2008

Growing up in Mount Vernon and spending most of my youth exploring Skagit Valley, I have a deep love and appreciation for everything that has made this amazing place into what it is today. My Grandparents came to the Valley in the 1940’s to pursue their dream of having a successful bulb and flower farm. Today my family continues the tradition with over 2,000 acres of farming in Mount Vernon. The traditions my Grandparents started over 70 years ago are largely responsible for the County’s biggest attraction, the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. The Festival brings an abundance of people to the Valley each year, which helps our economy grow and keeps a spotlight on our farming heritage.
Living on a farm most of my life has given me a strong work ethic combined with a “can do” attitude. Hard work and responsibility were always required, and those skills have remained an important part of my life. These attributes have carried me through my schooling at Washington State University and into my professional life as a Broker for Windermere Real Estate. The decision to join Windermere was the easiest business decision I have made. The reputation and amazing people at Windermere make me feel as though I joined a big family, with support for my business and personal goals.
I am an all-time Real Estate Broker offering services in residential listing and sales. I will return all calls in a reasonable time and give updates regularly. Together we will establish your real estate goals, and I will focus on helping you reach them. I understand the importance of communication and follow-thru, and promise to keep you fully informed and up-to-date.
I love living in the Pacific Northwest and there is no place I would rather call home. I am an avid outdoorsman and love to get out on the water or hiking and skiing up in the mountains. I am an involved Rotarian with Skagit Rotary, and I am a board member with Camp Kirby.
