Hi! My name is Sona and I am a Millie Scout and Army spouse providing relocation assistance and services to military families PCSing to or from Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM).
My husband and I were raised in the Southeastern US (NC, FL, AL) and while we miss the humidity and heat, we love the natural beauty and the outdoor adventure that we have found in Washington state! It is an incredible place to explore and I know you will love it too! We purchased a home in Tacoma, WA and are so grateful to have such wonderful neighbors, schools and nearby amenities.
Through our military travels we have lived at Ft. Bragg, NC, Maxwell AFB, AL, and now JBLM, WA. We currently own two homes, which we self-manage, and I am very comfortable with both the house-renting and house-buying process. This is because in addition to being a military spouse, I also worked for many years as a property manager and real estate broker and I am a certified interior decorator. I have a good eye for design, livability and neighborhood community. I am reliable, detail-oriented, timely and responsive in my communication and I am passionate about empowering people with information so they can make good decisions.
I currently work part-time as a freelance designer and yoga instructor. I decided to be a Scout for MILLIE because I feel passionate about helping military families feel supported and confident as they choose their next home! I understand the stress of finding a new home, good schools, new friends, career/volunteer opportunities for the spouse and linking up with military resources and families. Moving can be exciting, but there is no doubt it also can be stressful. My goal is to remove some of the unknowns that come with moving to a new area by serving as your trusted eyes and ears on the ground to aid in your important decisions and transitions.
I would love to help you find the perfect house or neighborhood, to help manage your property remotely, or provide any scouting services to assist you as you transition. I will work with you in a timely manner and keep you informed every step of the way. Many families choose to live in Tacoma, Gig Harbor, Dupont, Olympia, Lacey, Yelm, Sumner, Puyallup or Auburn. I am willing to travel to all of these areas in order to help you in any way I can! Please feel free to ask me any questions about how I can help!
