I began my career in real estate due to my experiences in buying and selling homes while being transferred around in the corporate world. Each time, I was disappointed in the different agent's knowledge, service, and follow through. I thought that there was something lacking in the approach of these agents in that none of them really went above and beyond to help me achieve my goals. I thought that if I were in the real estate business, I could really stand out as someone that took that service to a new level. In 1998, I decided to get my real estate license and learn everything I could about the buying and selling of homes to be of the greatest benefit to clients.
Since I began in real estate, I have represented clients in the purchase or sale of over 300 homes. I earned my CRS (Certified Residential Specialist) and GRI (Graduate, Realtor Institute) designations, which only about 4% of Realtors have, and cntinually educate myself by attending legal updates, classes of the array of contracts and addendums, marketing forums, and staying ahead by utilizing all the tools that today's technology has to offer. I am also an Accredited Staging Professional, and have the know-how to make your home show it's absoulte best to potential buyers.
