I joined First Rate Property Management in October of 2017. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Operations Management and Human Resources from the University of Idaho. I moved from Seattle to Boise in August 2017. Being a member of the First Rate Property Management team has not only been a blast, but a great learning experience. I love my job for a lot of reasons but I feel most fulfilled when I can assist prospective tenants in their journey to find a home, provide a seamless transition for the tenants in the Move In process, and provide exceptional customer service to tenants and property owners.

As a member of the leasing team, the most rewarding part of my job is listening to a prospective tenant's needs in order to locate suitable accommodation that will satisfy his or her requirements. I assist potential tenants in finding their next home by showing them available properties, guiding them through the application process, and executing the Rental Lease Agreement. I also help sustain a peaceful living situation for our valued tenants by providing excellent customer service while addressing any questions or concerns that they may have.
