Transaction and Social Justice Coordinator
I began working with Alvarado Real Estate Group in 2017 as the Transaction Coordinator, and along the way my role expanded to also include Social Justice Coordinator. I feel so fortunate to be able to work in a position that values and can utilize my 22 years of experience engaging in social and racial justice, which in recent years has focused on building and growing capacity in the Madison community for social justice within the real estate industry.
As Transaction Coordinator, my role is to team up with you and your Realtor one you get an accepted offer to assist in coordinating documents, communication and scheduling with numerous people – which can include sellers, buyers, cooperating brokers, lenders title company closers among others. You can say I’m the Queen of the Details! I look after the nuts and bolts to help make sure they are tended to in a timely manner to assure a successful close. As much as I appreciate our transaction coordination system, I really like how each real estate transaction comes with unique circumstances and getting to know the people involved. Buying and selling a home is a big deal!
As the Social Justice Coordinator I assist the Leadership team in our commitment to exploring and challenging the way racism is embedded within the real estate industry as a whole. This is layered and complex work and we practice this work through systems thinking, questioning the way things operate, and working towards creating more equitable practices rooted in justice. Our main project has been restructuring the company to incorporate a racial justice framework.
My own story began in Madison. I was born and raised here until the age of 11 and loved it! In 2008 I moved back to Madison because I’ve always considered it home in my heart. Soon after I found myself the owner of a 750 square foot fixer upper downtown that I couldn’t wait to make my own. It has taught me a lot about living simply and efficiently. In addition to coordinating transactions, and strategizing for social justice, I also help people make their spaces work for them and their best lives as a Professional Organizer. You can find out more about that on my website.
I look forward to working with you and making your experience with Alvarado Real Estate Group as seamless, reassuring and successful as possible!
