I have been in the real estate industry for almost 15 years as a relocation specialist. I have specialized in helping first-time homebuyers and military families. Most recently I have been working with short sales and foreclosures and in the last five years building my listing inventory. I take between fifteen to thirty listings a year and at the end of the year I have typically sold within 85 percent of them. Of these, about 90 percent are under contract within the first 30 days. As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you: 

Find Your Next Home You need someone who knows this area inside and out! As a current local to the Peninsula and being raised on the Southside I feel confident in my ability to bring a wealth of knowledge to my buyers on specific areas, associations and neighborhoods. I can work with you to find the right home in a price range you are comfortable with, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter working within the parameters you have set. As an Accredited Buyer’s Agent, I know all the ins and outs of not only the buying process but also the loan and title processes and I work closely with preferred mortgage and title specialists to ensure a smooth transaction. In addition, as a short sale and foreclosure specialist I am able to communicate knowledgably with banks and hold your hand through all of the scary and potentially dangerous things that may occur during these special circumstances. 

Sell a Home When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, verify financing, oversee the inspections and supervise necessary repairs, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close as much or as little as required or desired. I pride myself on my hands on customer service and strive to provide each of my clients with positive memorable experiences.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home sitting on the market and one that's sold fast.
