When my husband passed, I knew I had to keep our dream of residential development alive. Immediately following his passing, I completed a few commercial projects, but my passion is residential real estate so I’m excited to shift gears and dive back into residential development and restoration.
I’ve always been someone who “keeps their cards close to their chest,” so to speak, and have quietly brokered deals and made professional moves behind the scenes until now. Although the Rust Mansion is in my possession, I know the people of Tacoma have a deep connection to the property, and to some degree, this is the home of the community. I feel a great responsibility to share this restoration process with our beloved Tacoma natives. If I inspire other single women and mothers to take a chance in the process, that’s icing on the cake.
This property is as majestic as they come, so, similar to most Tacoma natives, I have marveled from afar at what always felt like an unattainable opportunity. Having the privilege to restore the Rust Mansion is nothing short of a dream come true. While I feel a sense of professional fulfillment in venturing this journey, an equal part of me is humbled to complete this restoration in honor of my late husband. While my son may not have had a chance to know his father, I hope he’ll get a sense of who he was and what we accomplished together through my past and future projects.
As the first female to purchase the property, I pride myself on this ownership. I hope the careful restoration showcases my appreciation for the property and its history while allowing me to leave a little mark of my own history.
