I have been a successful Realtor for over 28 years. Being able to listen to people and match them with the right property is what I am known for. This talent for matching people and property has resulted in successful sales from condos to luxury homes throughout the desert including Palm Springs, Cathedral City, Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, and La Quinta. I have been active in the Women’s Council of Realtors serving as Vice President of Membership for 2009 and Education Chairman. I am currently the 2015 President of the Women's Council of Realtors Palm Springs Desert Cities. One of my proudest moments was receiving the designation of Certified Residential Specialist. The Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) is the highest designation awarded to sales associates in the residential sales field. The CRS Designation recognizes professional accomplishments in both experience and education. I live with my husband Riemer Haagsma, on a nine-acre ranch, nestled into the hills, surrounded by over 250 pine and eucalyptus trees. I am an avid health and fitness enthusiast and love riding my two quarter horses when I am not selling real estate. My husband and I are animal lovers having rescued our 4 dogs. I know they enjoy the freedom of country living.
