Originally from South Dakota, Traci was raised on a dairy farm where she worked day in and out alongside her family. At a young age, she learned the importance of hard work and perseverance, two qualities that would set her apart later in her own career.
After many years of visiting Arizona on vacation with family, Traci knew the beautiful, warm desert climate would eventually become her home. Intent of her dream to become a hairstylist since the age of six, she set her sights on attending beauty school in Arizona just after graduating from high school. Arizona became her home away from home on the farm and is where she met her husband, Brent, and started her family. After doing hair for sixteen years, she “retired” to spend more time with her children just after her third was born.
Fast forward, almost an empty nester, Traci turned her on sights on a career in residential real estate. Having bought and sold homes throughout the valley over the years, and during a brief residency in Georgia, the thought of helping people realize their dreams through home ownership was intriguing to her.
Traci joined Arizona Best Real Estate in July of 2016, applying a lifetime of experiences with her love of making a house a home. Traci's distinctive people-first approach to real estate allows her to connect on a personal level with her clients and truly listen to their home needs and lifestyle desires. She treats each of her clients as she would her own family, with the utmost thought, care and protection.
“We are lake people.” Traci’s love of water sports and spending time with family and friends at the lake led her to involvement with “Day On the Lake”, a multi-day event that provides participants with neurological and physical disabilities the opportunity to enjoy activities including fishing, waterskiing, jet skiing, kayaking, and boat rides in a safe and encouraging environment.
