Family. Service. Education. These are my true passions.
Recognizing the moment when these passions came in to complete focus is often an elusive process. Yet, I genuinely believe that everything in my professional life - spanning throughout the midwest for the last 20 years - has led me to real estate. It’s an exciting moment to be in an industry that offers me the ability to serve family, friends and my community.
As a proud graduate of Grand Valley State University, I majored in both Hospitality and Tourism Management with Business Administration. And, after venturing to Chicago to dive head first in to the service industry with the Four Seasons Hotel, I was in a word, hooked. (It’s actually possible to be dazzled by intense training, especially when it fosters a lifelong love of providing white glove, five star service.)
Almost an eight-year stint with a real estate and property management company offered me the added experience of managing high rise condominium buildings, upscale projects, and collaborating on the most personal and significant of investments for an individual...the purchase of their home.
After returning to my Michigan roots in 2012, I've loved being with family in my beloved community of Caledonia and am grateful for the career opportunities that led me to my perfect real estate fit.
I welcome you to Finlan Homes! We are a small but mighty team consisting of myself and my sister-in-law, Erinn. We actively foster relationships throughout the buying and selling process while sparking a fun, supportive and educational backdrop to our ‘We’ve Got You’ level of customer service. I hope to connect with you soon!
DIRECTOR OF MARKETING AND DESIGN
I see the world in captivating vignettes. I always have.
I enter a home, a garage, a basement, a bathroom or even the outdoors and my mind leaps to how I can weave together moments of beauty, joy and tranquility to create those same vignettes for my clients and myself.
I’ve always sought the opportunity to turn the imagined into the actualized. I’m forever fascinated by the simple act of creation. That’s how my decade-long photography business organically morphed into the real estate world, when my husband, our two children and I moved to my home state of Michigan in 2015.
Suddenly, I’d found the ultimate umbrella for…(Insert a breath + auctioneer’s voice)… the staging, graphic designing, writing, landscaping, organizing, consulting, public speaking, house flipping, home repair and photography that I’d been doing for so many years. With real estate, I didn’t have to choose. I got to be all of those things at once.
And so, I’m not sure of the perfect job title for that list. Yet frankly, the title doesn’t matter. The creativity, the regard for detail, the ceaseless effort and the ability to make clients feel altogether taken care of is not just my occupation - it’s where my heart lies.
In that way, Finlan Homes seamlessly combines my skill set with that of my sister-in-law, Brooke’s. We share a sincere love for meticulous white-glove service and decades of experience in nurturing client peace of mind. We truly look forward to meeting and working with you.
