Add personality to your profile! Tell the community about yourself, your home, and your profession.

Purchasing or selling a home is one of the largest if not the largest transaction a person will complete in their life time.  As an agent, my responsibility is to guide you through the process and make it as stress free and enjoyable as possible.  A home purchase or sale is not brain surgery but if not executed correctly can be at minimum be frustrating, time consuming, or at worst costly and lead to legal proceedings.  My job is to steer you clear of the pitfalls by providing advice and making sure all the paperwork is completed and filed in timely manner allowing you to focus on the excitement of your new life ahead. 

In addition I have surrounded myself with affiliate professionals I can recommend to assist you in the mortgage process, provide you with building inspection services, and other services.  The individuals share my customer focused no nonsense approach to their respective crafts.  We will respect your wishes and desires but will not simply tell you what you wish to hear.  We all have the heart of teacher and will take the time to explain to your satisfaction any concept or situation you don't understand.  In my case I frequently find myself "playing devil's advocate" with client in order to steel their resolve in moving forward, or help them see pitfalls ahead with their intended course of action.

As a buyer or seller you need answers to important questions as they develop.  As a licensed Principal Broker I will probably have the answer.  If I don't have the correct answer at hand, I leverage technology so that the sun rarely sets on an open question.  As a listing agent I believe that feedback is one of the most important services an agent can provide.  I am happy to engage on multiple technological platforms phone, text, email, and web site for my clients.

There are many good agents out there, however if you are looking for one who is straightforward transparent, and understands the responsibility you and your family are about to entrust.  I would welcome the opportunity to be of service.

      Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $150K in Manchester, TN.
      Rafe provided superior service to us and made the difficult task of purchasing a home from out of state easy. He went out of his way to accommodate our schedule and advocate for us on numberous occasions. Our situation was very unique but he treated us with the utmost respect and patience. He listened carefully to our needs and did a fantastic job of finding what we asked for. With my husband traveling for work and me in another state, he was able to work closely with us via phone and/or electronically. He offered us both professional and personal advice when we had questions and met all our requests. He adjusted his schedule to meet ours and provided us with contact information for local contractors for the various inspections that were needed and was at the house when they performed their services because we couldn't be there. He worked with the seller and their agent as well as with our banker to tie up all the loose ends and even made it possible for us to do our closing locally because of time/travel constraints. He continually stayed on top of things to make sure that all the deadlines were met and went to bat for us when we encountered delays/problems. He even kept us abreast of the weather and traffic conditions when we in the area. Rafe went above and beyond to make our experience go as quickly and smoothly as possible and we can't thank him enough. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home.  MoreLess
