Professional Experience:

Prior to becoming a REALTOR I was the manager of a luxury apartment community in Okemos.  My work in the rental industry has given me a remarkable understanding of the importance of home-ownership.  Since joining Tomie Raines Realtors in 2005 I have focused on working with first-time buyers and sellers.  Both first-time buyers and sellers have unique needs that I am dedicated to meeting.   

Personal Experience:

I am a native of Michigan who grew up in Hastings.  I moved to the Greater Lansing area in 1997 to attend Michigan State University.  While a student at MSU, I met my husband, Orion Smith.  Orion was born and raised in East Lansing and you can currently find him volunteering his time to coach the Okemos High School debate team.  Since our wedding in 2004, we have been raising an adorable cocker spaniel named Kibbe.


I measure my success not in dollars earned but by the thanks of my satisfied clients.  I believe the only way to build a successful real estate practice is to do a great job for my customers.  My goal is to satisfy my customers so they will feel confident working with me in the future and so that they feel confident referring friends and family members to me.  Whether buying or selling, my written guarantee of Quality Service brings consistency, reliability and accountability to your real estate transaction.
