My clients tell me I'm different because I ask a lot of questions.
If I'm certain where you stand, I know how to best help you. So if you're ready or would like to explore how to get ready, I can help. I bring knowledge, diligence, honesty, tenacity and a great sense of humor to the table.
Each real estate transaction shares characteristics, but NONE have ever been the same.
Buying or selling a home is exciting and gathering good information can help minimize stress. As a Realtor for 23 years I've learned that data can only take my clients so far. There's no greater benefit than having access to a Realtor with long-term experience selling homes and condos.
Often times I have knowledge that doesn't show up in statistics like a pending neighborhood project, new freeway sound wall, important community activities, the financial health of a homeowners association. These all influence values beyond general market forces. Good timing can create instant equity. I stay on top of all this and more in the areas I cover.
My approach is to create a synergy between your needs and expectations as a Buyer or Seller.
I strive to educate my clients, empowering all parties to participate in their transaction from a position of strength during what can be a stressful process and an emotional roller coaster. I stay cool under pressure and I've been told many times that I'm a settling influence in a crisis.
I'm 100% committed to giving my clients the support and advice they need throughout the sales process.
