Central Oregon Real Estate Agent
This is me. Homesteader.
Being debt-free allows me to live a life of my dreams and a big part of that dream has grown into being a homesteader and living a simple life with less. Along the way we learned how to be self-sufficient from our own land. Homesteading is a lifestyle, and often my real estate clients are curious about how they can include simplicity and homesteading in their lives as well.
Red Cross Volunteer
One of the motivators to becoming debt-free was to have more time to give to others. Volunteering in the Red Cross helps me fulfill that desire while making a difference in other’s lives.
Shortly after my move to Prineville, the Red Cross came to my house for a free smoke alarm installation as part of their Home Fire Campaign. I knew that was the place I needed to be – giving back to local home owners and renters. I started out in that same role, installing smoke alarms in homes and educating home owners on disaster preparation. That quickly led to me becoming a Disaster Action Team Responder for the local area to help families through the recovery stages after smaller disasters like home fire, flood etc.
When I saw how impactful that was, I knew I wanted to do more. They told me about national response and I jumped at the opportunity and talked to my family about how I could make it happen. National response requires a 2-week commitment and I wanted to create that in my business. With my business partner, I now live this dream, knowing that when I’m away my clients are still in trusted hands and they will be taken care of.
