Louise, a native of Sonoma County, has witnessed the changing landscape of the cities and countryside over the years. Inspired by conversations with appraisers in 2002, she obtained her appraiser trainee license in 2005. After gaining experience as an appraiser assistant and becoming a Certified Residential Real Estate Appraiser, she started her own business, Solid Foundation Appraisals, in 2012. With 160 to 250 appraisals conducted annually in Sonoma & Marin County, she has developed a deep understanding of the local neighborhoods.
While she excelled as an appraiser, Louise missed the personal connection with clients. Encouraged by Vicki Thiessen, she obtained her Real Estate sales license. She believes in building relationships with clients to understand their needs and desires. As part of the esteemed Thiessen Group at W Real Estate, she is supported by a dedicated team of professionals who share her commitment to excellence. With her newfound status as a real estate agent, Louise is dedicated to assisting clients in their quest to discover their perfect homes, be it a first home, a retirement residence, or an investment property.
During her leisure time, Louise finds joy in the company of her two adult children and three grandchildren. Additionally, she indulges in her love for the great outdoors, often engaging in activities such as hiking, running, biking, and camping. These moments spent in nature serve as her ultimate source of happiness and contentment.
