Homes for All Buyers
Unbelievable Service for Buyers and Sellers!
For over thirty years, I have had the honor and the joy of helping families with their relocation: younger people buying their first homes to older people down-sizing. I have been able to help going- on three generations and counting. Part of the joy is also the excitement of innovations in this business. I started when there were no lockboxes, or fax machines, computers or color printers. We ran all over town delivering papers and dropping off keys, but with the introduction of modern technology comes a whole new set of responsibilities: setting up web pages, writing and designing advertisements, designing brochures. There are also many more phones and pagers to answer than there ever were before, but with this is a more advanced marketing and promotion of homes and better communication. There are more avenues for people to find homes that they want to purchase and with the internet, virtual tours and digital cameras, less is left to chance.
With each home I market, there is a new excitement; a new avenue for creativity and a new way to make the public aware of the love and care that you have given to your family’s home. I pledge to give everyone I work with an opportunity to join in that excitement of buying or selling your home.
Please join me on this wonderful trip!
