Associate Broker / Office Manager
She grew up in the foothills as part of a hardworking family. Kendall’s mom is a master gardener and her father is a landscaper. They taught her how to make the most of outdoor spaces. Her father also rebuilt their fire-damaged home when she was a child. All of these experiences imbedded in her the importance of creating a “home”. She believes in keeping her core values close to heart and applying them to all she does. Because of those values and a strong work ethic, earning the trust of her clients and working hard for them comes naturally. She specializes in finding great homes for her clients by listening carefully to their wants and needs, and then setting her standards high. In this way, she has learned to exceed her client’s expectations. Kendall understands that when it comes to buying or selling real estate, it’s much more than a transaction, it’s about a new chapter in someone’s life. She takes the worry out of this process by providing exceptional attention to detail, oftentimes, simplifying the process with her dedication to “giving it all she’s got”.
Kendall began pursuing her passion in real estate by learning the ins and outs of real estate transactions by assisting Jon Terry, a top producing agent. One of her core values is to help others and this is clearly reflected by her tenacity throughout the real estate transaction process. She loves educating and communicating with her clients so that they can more easily understand what is happening each step of the way. Kendall teaches classes to first time home buyers and feels honored when clients and other Realtors® refer or call on her knowledge. Kendall is passionate about recycling and sustainability and has the National Association of Realtors® Green Realtor® designation. Kendall is never too busy for a phone call, or better yet a cup of coffee, to catch up and find out how she can help.
