Raina was born and raised in the Coulee Region and attended West Salem schools. She graduated cum laude from Belmont University and worked in the music industry in Los Angeles and Nashville. An exciting life didn’t make up for missing her family, so she moved back home to La Crosse, started working at LHI, met her husband, and bought her first fixer-upper. A few years later, she's bought her second project home and decided her life-long interest in houses, architecture and design was the career path she was always meant to travel!
Raina specializes in fixer-uppers and can see the potential in any house. As an artist, she can help stage your home for sale or help you see around outdated finishes in an otherwise perfect home! She will help you get the most home for your money while being respectful of your goals and budget. Raina follows the financial principles of Dave Ramsey and believes a house should be a treasure, not a burden!
"My first home's living room - designed by me!"
In addition to her passion for real estate, Raina is a musician and recording artist (RainAfire), painter, writer, photographer, actress, traveler and avid DIY-er. She is active in the arts community and also loves hiking, boating, running and bonfires. She lives in the forest and enjoys watching deer and fox with her husband Jon and cat Captain Jack.
