For Fran, success is as natural as helping friends. Thoroughly enjoying people, Fran puts her heart and soul into her work, viewing her job as assisting members of her extended family.
Her clients are filled with praise: “A true pleasure to work with… honest assessments… strong negotiating skills… upbeat attitude.” “You worked so hard to get this deal finalized.” “You listened intently to what we wanted – and could afford – and never wasted our time showing us homes that didn’t match our needs.” “Tireless in your efforts… our best advocate!” “By taking the time to get familiar with our lifestyle and priorities, you successfully identified a select number of potential candidates that enabled us to focus on homes that ‘felt’ right. You made a perfect match!”
Awards and professional recognition have followed Fran over the course of her 14+ year real estate career. She holds the GRI (Graduate of the Realtor Institute) designation and was named to a worldwide brokerage’s International President’s Circle during her tenure there. As part of The Riverside Realty Group, she is a highly valued member of the area’s most well-respected brokerage firm.
Performing admirably has always been multi-talented Fran’s forte. Beautifully wielding her intelligence, sensitivity, and superb interpersonal skills, she has a highly successful former career as a singer/songwriter and actress. Her songs have been recorded on major labels by well-known artists, and her musical voice was frequently heard in major commercials and in her two-year role on the television show “As the World Turns,” where she played “Jimmie Sue,” a country singer. Here, Fran sang over forty original songs on the show, including “Together, Forever,” a love song co-written and performed with her husband, Jeff. Fran still sings publicly on occasion, now most often using her wonderful voice to benefit worthy causes.
