   I have been a realtor in California and Oregon for almost 30 years. Many hours of classes and seminars, plus my many interests and hobbies help to enhance my skills in the real estate industry.
   Born in Riverside, California, I lived with my  Grandmother  up  to  my  Junior high school year. I then moved with my parents  to Guam, where I graduated high school. My father was in the Air Force and we had the good fortune to vacation in Japan, China the Philippines and Hawaii.  After moving back to Riverside to care for my ailing Grandmother, I began working for Pacific Telephone Company as a long distance operator, and began building and driving stock cars and drag racers with my husband. Sky Diving at Lake Elsinore  and riding motorcycles were other hobbies  I participated in.
   I moved to San Luis Obispo County and as a single parent worked long hours to provide for my children. A change in careers occurred and I found my niche in life, real estate. Assisting others in finding and obtaining their dream properties evolved into a long-term commitment. I worked toward and earned my broker’s license in California and Oregon,  plus received recognition for  being  top  listing and selling  agent  many  times.  I received valuable experience while working for Prudential, Century 21, and Coldwell Bankers Real Estate Companies, where I was also the key speaker at many training seminars. In my spare time I would pack up my children, dogs, horses and other neighborhood children and head for the nearby beaches or mountains on camping trips. I was a docent at Montana De Oro State Park, helping maintain trails for local horseback riders and hikers. Other activities included serving as president for the local woman’s trail riding Group “The Happy Hoofers”.  I was also a member of the California Cow Belles, the state cattlewomen’s organization. I also enjoyed softball and was the pitcher in a co-ed league for many years, plus acting as coach for my children’s little league teams.
   My husband, Danny Raminha, the son of a Morro Bay ranching family had been visiting Wallowa County for many years, and the first time he brought me to the county, I fell in  love with not only the beauty of the area, but also the warm friendly people.  This was the ideal place to call home. “It’s the kind of place that just keeps pulling you back until you just have to be here full time”.  In the past 45 years Dan and I have made life long friends in the Wallowa Valley.
   My real estate experience and education is extensive and I have earned the following coveted designations: GRI-Graduate Realtors Institute. CRS-Council of Residential Specialist, and ABR-Accredited Buyers Representative. I strive to keep up with the ever changing world of real estate by attending as many different schools, seminars and classes as possible. “Its only common sense to be able to advise my clients on new laws and regulations”. I also keep my California license current, and maintain a working relationship with many California Brokers.
   My husband Danny and I live on ten acres outside of Joseph, about 6 miles from Enterprise, Oregon.  Dan is an avid hunter and outdoorsman and we enjoy camping, horseback riding, hunting and caring for our property. We usually run a few head of cows, and I spend a lot of my free time in the summer gardening and caring for my fish ponds. Winters, I enjoy curling up in front of a nice fire and quilting or reading. I spent two years making 75 lap quilts for our two nursing homes.
   Organizations I belong to are: Oregon Cattle Women’s Association, NRA, Wallowa County Quilt Guild, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Eagle Cap Shooters Association, Women’s auxiliary of the VFW and I am a member of Enterprise Christian Church.
   When my son, Larry Senger’s Army unit deployed to Iraq four years ago, I knew I'd be worried sick. I decided to be proactive and do my part to help all of the county’s young men and women know that  they weren’t forgotten.  I started Hometown Hero’s Support Group, and started packaging about 30 boxes per month and sending them out to our soldiers who were deployed. Now, four years later, I’m still sending out those boxes, even with my son safely home.   
   At Real Estate Associates I strive to provide the quality of service everyone is looking for and few find. I look forward to assisting you with all of your real estate needs, and I promise to provide you with kind, courteous and professional real estate service with a high degree of integrity and honesty. I haven’t done our job, if you haven’t exceeded your expectations.
