In 2010, I decided to earn my REALTORS license in order to expand upon my real estate career. Fairly early on I recognized that my heart most enjoyed working with individuals in single family homes. Helping other people reach their dreams became my passion. Seeing the look on a first time homebuyers' face when they walk into their new castle is one of the greatest pleasures in this business.
Can't just any Realtor open a door during a buying tour? Don't all agents post information for listings into MLS? The answer to both questions is YES! To be honest, there isn't a whole lot of difference between agents in how they unlock a door or push the publish button. The magic happens in how well we communicate as an effective team, in using wisdom to develop a strategic plan based on your individual motivations and goals, avoiding the many pitfalls through skilled negotiation and leadership, all while maintaining professionalism in every step of the way.
My promise is to be a guiding force to keep you on the path, as emotions ebb and flow, during the home-transitioning romance until you are settled into your new private palace.
