Downs Realty (Broker)

My husband and I have built a quality portfolio of investment properties.


Through this process I have learned how to spot a great deal, write an offer that lands a property without overpaying, manage the properties, improve, market, and sell them.

Whether you are looking to buy or sell a primary residence, or an investment property, I look forward to putting this experience to work for you!

Mike Gamblin Real Estate (Broker)

Being in the customer service industry as well as producing real estate marketing reports over the last nine years has given me the pleasure of meeting and working with people in all different walks of life.


If I were to choose the most important thing I learned from my experiences, it would be that it is essential to really listen to what your clients are looking for, and do whatever it takes to reach those expectations.  When it comes to the journey through a real estate transaction, no two paths are the same.

My goal is to take all of the elements that are important to my customers and clients, and find the perfect home to meet their needs.

Over the years I have found that perseverance, integrity, and my true passion for working with people have helped me develop not only great working relationships, but friendships that last beyond the end of the transaction.

Downs Realty, LLC (Broker)


I truly believe there is a REALTOR out there for everyone; we all work differently and have different specialties and personalities.

Your REALTOR will spend a lot of time with you, either in a car looking at homes, or around your table talking about pricing strategies and staging ideas. Your feelings, reasons for selling or buying, are all personal and specific to you. You need to trust and like your REALTOR, don’t take the decision lightly. You’ll be spending allot of time together and maybe even become lifelong friends.

I am looking forward to the opportunity to working with you!

A little about myself and how I came to become a Broker Associate with Downs Realty on the Thorpe Family Realty Team:

After my children began school, I wanted to find a career that would be challenging, involve working with the public, and give me the flexibility to remain involved in my children’s schooling. I hoped the real estate industry would provide this, and so I worked to earn my agent’s license in January of 2004 and later my brokers license in 2009.

I enjoy all the things I was hoping for, and receive so much more, too. I learn new things everyday which keeps things interesting. Whether it’s new laws, technology, or changing markets; I love the fast pace and different situations and personalities each new client brings. I have been so fortunate to also have gained many lifelong friends along the way.

Working with other parties, individuals and other agents, to achieve the best possible deal and terms for my clients is more than simply a job, it’s a passion for me. Additionally, I understand that buying or selling your home can be an emotional experience, I always take into account my clients’ feelings. I have been selling homes for over a decade. I understand how important the decision of where you call home is.

When not working, I’m a volunteer junky! I’m honored to say I have received volunteer of the year from my Rotary Club and Chamber of Commerce and I am a Paul Harris Fellow. My family and I spend a lot of time in the wilderness hiking, camping, and bicycling; which is one of the most important reasons we live where we do. My husband and son ski, but my daughter and I tend to like warmer conditions; I enjoy sneaking in a good book while they’re on the slopes.
