I'm a real estate professional of 16+ years in Northern Virginia. I began in residential real estate sales in 1992, as a new home sales representative for one of the areas finest builders, Van Metre Homes. I assisted in sales over $12 million in volume with entry-level homes in my first year. I also had a brief experience as an assistant building superintendent, which broadened my scope of knowledge about real estate from the production side.
In 1997 I decided to take my career to traditional brokerage and joined RE/MAX as an assistant to an area Top Producer. Together we achieved sales 10+ Million/Year, 1998 to 2004 and were among the Top 10 RE/MAX teams in Fairfax, VA. I made this shift to RE/MAX because I loved the idea of representing the interests of clients -- more of a consultative role -- helping people rather than strictly the selling of homes. I see myself as more of a consultant or guide than a proverbial salesperson.
Over the years I've developed a reputation for having a unique service excellence. My service is unique because I concentrate heavily on these core principles:
1. No Sales Pressure! This is my #1 compliment I receive from past clients and is the backbone of my service model. This creates a relaxed and enjoyable process from start to finish. Real Estate is the most important investment people make in their life. I believe that people should take this process at their own pace, with guidance from someone they trust.
2. Molding my service to the personalities of my clients. I work well with everyone! I find that so many agents lack the social skills and ability to read clues of their clients and the public we serve. People quickly develop a comfort and confidence in our relationship -- that it will drive them to the success they seek.
3. Giving Experienced Advice that covers all the bases, so my clients aren't surprised or caught off-guard. My advice wins for my clients~!
Today, I'm committed to my clients across a broad spectrum of services. I give back to my community through donations to Children's Miracle Network and Wounded Soldiers. I am also a Coach for youth sports in our local Southwestern Youth Association. I'm a musician/song writer and have composed music for independent feature film, local singing talents, as well as The Association of American Manufacturers.
Thank you for reading about me. I hope to have you as a valued client -- and friend.
