Real estate is a high-stakes business. And while we try our best to maintain perspective, our intense connection to houses can be emotionally charged. These are HOMES; places where our memories were made or conversely, our new lives will unfold. That's where I come in. As a seller's agent, I can't express enough the importance of marketing discipline. My standards are high, and as such, we work diligently to put your home in the best position to get maximum exposure to the RIGHT buyers, at the right time, at the right price. I'm not a Prima Donna (noun; a very temperamental person with an inflated view of their own talent or importance) and I'm not afraid to do what it takes. With over 25 years of negotiating experience, you will come out with a winning deal. As a buyer's agent, I do a lot of upfront work to uncover your obvious and not-so-obvious needs. By drilling down, we often discover a whole new layer of "musts" you might have overlooked. We list, prioritize, and stick to the plan. This keeps the process streamlined and laser-focused. I am a full-time broker; dialed into the market. Sometimes I'll tell you things you don't want to hear- but you will always get what you need to be successful. Call me anytime. I am eager to show you a new kind of real estate experience.

Professional Specialty

Let's face it. Realtors have a bad rap. It's one of the lowest rated professions out there. But it doesn't have to be that way. My job hinges on being an olympic listener, objective analyst, determined scout, hard core negotiator, and a self-admitted workaholic. All while being transparent, adaptable and an overall outstanding business partner.
