I grew up on a farm in Kerman, a small town in the central valley west of Fresno. My journey to Shaver Lake actually began with my grandparents who settled in Big Creek (just north of Shaver) in 1940 where my grandfather worked for Southern California Edison. Upon retiring to Shaver Lake, he built a modest retirement ‘home’ in what is now known as the East Village. That wonderful little ‘cabin’ became my second home, as my family spent weekends and summers there throughout my childhood and early adult life.

For as far back as I can remember Shaver Lake was always my favorite place to be. This wonderful resort community continued to be our ‘vacation destination’ while raising my own family, and then ultimately became ‘our home’ in June of 2000.

I am the proud mom of four, and have been a Realtor since 2003, as well as the top producing agent in Shaver Lake since 2008. In 2011, I acquired my broker’s license and set out on my own to open Pinnacle Real Estate which became the #1 agency in sales volume in its first year of operation. I credit these successes to my strong work ethic and integrity which are a result of my ‘farm girl’ background. I was taught at an early age that “you reap what you sow”….

Thank you to all of those whom I’ve had the privilege of serving over the years. And to those whom I’ve not yet had the opportunity, I look forward to earning your business in the future!

I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to live in the beautiful area of Shaver Lake. When I was younger, my family would often visit the Sierras and I could never get enough of the mountain life, so being able to move here in 2007 was a dream come true. Every day I have the opportunity to wake up to the birds chirping and the creek roaring, all while taking in the fantastic views. Whether it be the perfect temperatures of a summer afternoon, or the snow falling on a winter evening, I truly feel blessed to live in such an amazing place.

I grew up on a farm near Kerman, where I quickly learned that hard work and determination are essential to success in any venture. I watched my parents give all they had for us as kids so that we may have a better life. They were the best role models a girl could have, watching them be successful through adversity and hard times, they were truly an inspiration to me. I later went on to obtain my BA from the University of the Pacific and my MS from Cal Poly SLO, and as a former collegiate athlete, I learned the value of hard work, sacrifice, and teamwork. After graduating from College, I went on to become a teacher and administrator in the local school system.

Shortly after moving to Shaver Lake, I obtained my Real Estate License and I began working in real estate, initially in marketing and promotions and later as a technology assistant and file coordinator. Eventually I decided to start using my license to help clients find their perfect dream home or property, and so far I am loving every minute of it. I am hoping that you will give me the opportunity to make your dream home or cabin a reality here in Shaver Lake, and I look forward to being able to work with you.

I was born and raised in Shaver Lake and have enjoyed the mountains all of my life. I was introduced to the real estate business in the 1960’s by my grandfather who owned and operated Ivie’s Market and Ivie Realty in Shaver and later became the area Judge. I tagged along as he did all of the appraisals for Guarantee Savings and other banks and once in awhile when he was showing property. My grandmother was the Post Master after taking over for Velma Harshman in the 50’s. I obtained my sales license in 1970 while attending Cal Poly SLO and worked at Morro Bay Realty until I finished at Cal Poly and obtained my broker’s license in 1973. I returned to Shaver and purchased Shaver Lake Realty from Amos Wood as he migrated to Morro Bay to retire. In 1975 I took on a partner who owned the Century 21 J & J Real Estate franchises in Fresno. We purchased a C-21 franchise for Shaver. I operated the Shaver office as the managing broker and eventually opened a second office in Auberry. Through all of the economic fluctuations to follow I always kept my license active and my finger on the pulse of the market. I still love to work with the people and the property in the mountains and appreciate the office support at Pinnacle and the professionalism of the staff. They’re the best, which is why I joined them. Things have changed immensely since I started in the business, but it has always been a “people business” and always will be.

My journey to Shaver Lake began when I met my husband in 1987. My husband’s grandmother purchased a cabin at Huntington Lake, and it soon became our family’s summer vacation destination. Traveling through Shaver Lake on our way to Huntington we ended up falling in love with the area and purchased our first vacation home in 1998. I had often thought about becoming a Realtor after going through the process of buying our home and obtained my license in 2004. Since we were spending much of our time in Shaver we moved here full time so I could pursue my career in real estate in this wonderful mountain community.

Like Beth, I was also raised in Kerman. My parents moved to Kerman from Fresno when I was three so that my father could expand his business building custom homes. I started working at a young age helping to clean the homes throughout the building process. I was raised with a good work ethic and learned to treat people fairly and honestly. My mission is to provide the best service to my clients with the highest level of integrity and to build a relationship for the future with each and every person I am privileged to serve.

I was born in Fresno and grew up in the country on the west side. As a child I have found memories of spending time with my uncle and grandfather packing in the high Sierras. Later as a teenager I would camp in Shaver Lake and Dinkey Creek. Back then I knew I wanted to someday live in the beautiful Sierras.

Although my career took me to Southern California in 1996, I continued to dream of one day living in Shaver Lake. I was able to fulfill my dream in 2018.

I’ve had the privilege of calling Shaver Lake home since 1955 when my grandfather, Jack, built one of the first cabins in the East Village. It’s a place that has held a special spot in our hearts, a place where my family has made cherished memories for generations and still enjoys today!

Born and raised in Clovis, CA, my love for Shaver Lake drew me back to this picturesque community full-time in 2002 when my husband, Sean, and I decided to make it our permanent residence, along with our two wonderful daughters. Shaver Lake’s incredible beauty, diverse lifestyle, year-round recreational opportunities, and warm sense of community have enriched our lives beyond measure.

Our family has a deep appreciation for the outdoors, our favorite hobbies include spending summers on the lake, snowmobiling and skiing in the winter, embarking on off-road adventures, hiking, traveling, and sharing stories around a campfire with family and friends.

For over two decades, we have owned and operated various small businesses in our local area. Through these experiences, I have learned the values of versatility, resilience, dependability, hard work, and the fact that true success often lies just beyond our comfort zones.

My passion for investing in real estate, both residential and commercial, led me to obtain my real estate license. With an unwavering work ethic and dedication to my clients, I am committed to ensuring that your real estate experience is smooth and stress-free. Honesty, integrity, exceptional customer service, and client satisfaction have always been my top priorities as I’ve built and maintained long-term relationships.

I believe that effective communication, meticulous attention to detail, and a personalized approach are the keys to a successful real estate transaction. I am excited to earn your business and together, as your agent, we can make your real estate dreams a reality.

Thank you for considering me as your partner in your real estate journey.

I was born in Redwood City, CA and moved to Chowchilla, CA in 2006. From a young age, my family always took the time to take trips out to show my brother and I the great outdoors. At around four years of age, I learned to ski in these very woods at China Peak. Years later, I’d come to work as a supervisor at the same resort I’d come to love as a child. This lovely resort also introduced me to my wonderful fiancé.

I am very grateful to be able to work in an area like this. Every season is a beautiful shade to look forward to, and there’s always something to keep you busy. From the golden hues of fall to the cool tones of winter, the natural beauty here is abundant. It’s a pleasure to call such a gorgeous place home.

Throughout my work in the hospitality industry, I have learned to help people find what is best for them. I am very fond of working closely with others as well. In whatever I do, you can rest assured that my time and diligence will be dedicated towards it. My motivation is to help you find a house that feels like home. I look forward to working with you on your real estate journey!

I am a native of the Fresno/Clovis area and had the privilege of also living in Kansas, Wyoming, Hawaii, and the bay area before moving to the Tollhouse area approximately twenty-one years ago. I spent a lot of time at Shaver Lake, and China Peak skiing with friends.

I raised my son in the Clovis area before we both moved to the Tollhouse area, where I have enjoyed watching my three grandsons grow up. My faith, family, and friends are my number one priorities and I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, boating, and going to the coast.

I come from a background of contractors and enjoyed spending time with my dad on the job sites. I took an early interest in the building industry, including the buying and selling of real estate. I bought my first home when I was eighteen. While still in college, with a major in business administration, I started my career in the hospitality industry, managing several different restaurants and country clubs, as well as owning two different restaurants, including Humphrey Station. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know my foothill neighbors during that time.

I first started my real estate career approximately thirty-three years ago, but continued in the restaurant industry, while never losing my love for real estate. When I decided to retire, I knew I would be bored, so it didn’t take long to know I wanted to continue my passion in real estate.

I am very versed in not only the foothill and mountain communities, but also Clovis and Fresno, as well as YLP. I pride myself on a very high standard of ethics, honesty and professionalism. I’ve always enjoyed helping my clients find their perfect home and would love the opportunity to help you with any of your real estate needs.

Let me put my knowledge and love for real estate to work for you!
