Beverly began her career in Real Estate in San Diego in the 1980’s. She worked with Grubb and Ellis and specialized in Equestrian Properties and Land. She was the President of the Horse Property Broker’s Association and sold properties all over Southern California. Among her more notable sales were The Rancho Bernardo Riding Club, the San Luis Rey Training Center, Faubus Farms, and numerous large parcels of land. Beverly also authored many articles in The Horsetrader Magazine, The Morgan Horse Magazine, The Equestrian Connection, Young Equestrian and was the subject of an article about equestrian properties in the San Diego Union Newspaper. She eventually relocated to Northern California, first Lake Tahoe and then Grass Valley, where she joined United Country Real Estate. She has lived in Grass Valley now for over 20 years and continues to specialize in horse properties and rural land. Beverly is a lifelong horsewoman and she and her husband Skip owned Meadowcreek Morgans. Out of 12 foals that they bred, 5 went on with their new owners to become World Champions in Western Pleasure, Dressage and Western Dressage. Beverly’s love for animals started early. She swam in an underwater show with dolphins and sea lions at Sea World San Diego and eventually became the first woman in the world to ride a Killer Whale, the original Shamu. While living at Lake Tahoe, she bred and showed Alaskan Malamutes and raced them as a sled team, becoming the first Malamute team to win the Lake Tahoe Sled Dog Race. Her involvement with Morgan Horses began in 1990 when she bred her gelding Top Gun who she still owns at age 29. She also bred Meadowcreek Maverick who she trail rides and has shown in Cowboy Dressage. Her many years in Real Estate have given her a wide ranging knowledge of the requirements of buyers and sellers as well as the specialized marketing required for these types of unique properties. Her creative needs are fulfilled by being a gourd artist. Of course, many of her gourds feature horses or western motifs. She has won Best of Division for 4 years at the Nevada County Fair and the Draft Horse Classic Harvest Fair. Beverly takes the time to really get to know her clients and their needs and takes great care in finding the ideal property or marketing a property to the best of her ability.
