Clients are always amazed when I tell them that I do not sell homes. I take you, the customer, to locations that you might consider home. The home sells itself. You either fall in love or we continue searching until you find your dream home. Sound easy? It's not. My job starts when you find the picture perfect home. My job is protecting you and your investment. Using 19 years of experience and education, I check every detail from the beginning of the fantasy to the moment you are holding the keys.
Every agent has a strength in real estate; commercial, residential, working with buyers or working with sellers. My passion is education. As a certified licensed continuing education instructor and a certified licensed pre-license instructor, I enjoy teaching agents about the business of real estate. From brand new brokers to seasoned team members, real estate education is the foundation to success.
Does all that education benefit my clients? Absolutely! Do you want your doctor to have a PhD or would just an average education give you confidence in their skills? The same applies in real estate. You want the best when selling or buying your largest investment. Working to educate my clients in real estate helps you make better choices, protects your investments and ultimately makes the vision of buying or selling your home a reality.
Below details my experience. I look forward to assisting you with your dream.
