I was born in Felixstowe, Suffolk, England, a coastal town in East Anglia. I went to school there and graduated from Brentwood College of Education with a teacher's degree in 1977. After spending a year in Montreal, Canada, my dream was to emigrate to North America permanently. I moved to Vancouver, B.C. in 1981 where I worked as a nanny until I gained my Canadian citizenship. I married and had four kids and we were able to move to Bellingham in 1991. I love this area and am fortunate to live by Lake Whatcom, close to the Skagit County border.
Since then my life has changed in many ways! I discovered a love of real estate, which I have pursued as a career with RE/MAX since 2000. I remarried in 2002 and have recently become a U.S. citizen. I am looking forward to making new connections while maintaining a relationship with past clients and friends.
My goal as a real estate broker is to go above and beyond what my clients expect. I know that buying or selling a home is a major life event and can be overwhelming so I try my best to make it an enjoyable, straight-forward process. I am a great listener and will help my clients every step of the way. I have learned during my many years in real estate, that a no pressure approach keeps everyone relaxed. I am always completely honest and committed to each client no matter how large or small the property.
When I am not working, I enjoy boating in the San Juan and Gulf Islands with my husband and our rescue dogs, Jack and Lucy, who also likes to kayak with me on the lake! We like to play golf and if I could do it more often, I might get better at the game.
I feel so fortunate to have a healthy, happy life and to live in one of the most beautiful places in the world. I love to show off our area so let me know if you would like a tour!

Sally was extraordinary to work with. She helped us from start to finish. She is engaging, knowledgeable, patient, and willing to go the extra mile. We recommend her with no reservations. - Paula Stern
We bought our home at the top of the market, so while that could have been a very competitive transaction, Sally handled it smoothly so there was little negotiation on our part. She was open to showing us all types of homes, and had a few recommendations, and one was the home we bought and now love! - Karen Silvernale
Sally took the time to help even when we hit a few rough spots. She knew what I wanted and kept on top of it until I got it. Would recommend her to others in need of an experienced agent. - Lesley Palacioz
