I am a Realtor with RE/MAX Precision in Clive. I was licensed in 2008 and it has been my full-time career ever since. Prior to becoming licensed, I was working as an appraiser assistant and remodeling homes on the side. This is where I learned property values and understanding the market. My first year in business 2008, was not a good time in the real estate market. We were buying foreclosures and remodeling them, because that was the market at the time. This is where I learned most everything that I know about construction, I feel that I've seen it all. If you are a first time buyer looking for a fixer upper I can definitely help with that, and shed some good light on what needs done or what repairs will return you the most profit.
Since then, I have built a good reputation with my clients and the market has changed quite a bit. I do not advertise much other than what you are seeing here today, because the referrals keep me busy.
I have done all kinds of Real Estate. I've personally bought many investments, including rehabs and apartment buildings. If you are looking for one of these now or down the road, I am an open book and will share the rights and wrongs I have made as a property manager/investor. My niche is the $150 to $300k range, but am willing to work with any buyer or seller no matter their price range. I am also a Certified New Construction Specialist, if you are looking to build urban or rural, this is a great place to start.
If you are looking to buy or sell you should always get a second opinion, my consultations are always free, with no obligations.
