Home ownership is exciting and rewarding but getting there can be complicated and somewhat difficult unless you have a professional to guide you through the process. As your trusted advisor, I will take the stress and worry out of the process, creating the joyful experience buying or selling a home should be.

Licensed since 1993, I have been associated with Howard Hanna Real Estate Services since 1997 currently under the direction of Alicia Kosec, Broker of the Poland office.  

I am accustomed to working in many different market conditions. I have seen the best of markets, where homes sell in multiple offer situations at above or asking price. And I have seen difficult markets, where there are Foreclosures and Short-Sales throughout, making financing and appraisals very difficult. Through my experience and knowledge, I am able to partner with individuals and lenders in getting these types of homes closed!  I am very familiar with new construction. I was a Site team member at Firestone Farms in Columbiana from it's inception. I also was on teams at Ridgely Park in Poland and Tippecanoe Woods in Canfield. While I was the Site Coordinator of Tippecanoe Woods, we enjoyed great sales and sold the development out in a very short period of time.  I enjoy the diversity of selling not only new construction but also resale homes in the Mahoning , Trumbull and Columbiana County areas.  I love working with first-time homebuyers and guiding them through the process of owning their first home!

I attained the designation of New Homes Specialist in 2002 and in 1999 received the RRS designation  (Residential Relocation Specialist). I am qualified to work with all of the different Relocation companies nationwide, transferring people both into and out of town.

I have achieved the Ohio Association of Realtors (OAR) President's Sales Club Award of Achievement (attaining over $1 million in sales volume) 1999-2004, 2007, 2008-2012; the Award of Distinction (attaining over $2.5 million in sales volume) for 2005 and 2013; additionally, the same year receiving The Realty Alliance National Sales Award in recognition of an exceptional performance as one of the leading residential real estate sales professionals in America; the Award of Excellence (attaining over $5 million in sales volume) for 2006.  I am consistently one of the Top Producing Realtors in the Poland office in volume of homes closed.  My sales volume for the year ending 12/31/06 was 6 million dollars (top 1% in the Poland office). My sales value for the year ending 12/31/10 was nearly 4 million dollars (top 5% in the Poland office). In the course of my career, I have sold well over 36 million dollars in homes. My goal is to give you a great experience so that I receive referral from you!

The difference between myself and another agent is that the innovative marketing programs that Howard Hanna Real Estate Services has to offer I just don't tell you about them; I implement them into a custom marketing plan to fit your individual wants and needs.

My philosophy is to treat everyone the same whether they are purchasing a $50,000 home or a $1,500,000 home.







Tips for Staging Your Home

I know selling your home involves as many emotions as you can think of, but remember, when you put your house on the market it is no longer your house. It is a sale item that needs to look its best so someone will want to make an offer. It should be a showcase of features that appeal to as many buyers as possible.
This is one of my favorite aspects of my job working with sellers. I will help you stage your home to make it more marketable for a quick sale. My suggestions are nothing personal. Please don’t think I don’t like your home because I do!
Here are some of my suggestions to help your home look and feel its best:

·         Curb Appeal.                                                                                                                                                                         
Make sure the outside of your home is clean. Clear out weeds and leaves, trim the bushes and paint if necessary.
Keep the grass cut and the snow shoveled too! We want the buyers to come inside not run and hide!
·         Start packing! You are planning to move right?                                                                                           
Pack up all those personal photos and knick-knacks. You will need them in your new home. While you are at it, clean out closets and storage cupboards too; buyers will look.
·         Rent a storage unit for your boxes and extra furniture.
      This will clear the clutter and give you time to bring them to your new home to unpack.
·         Clean everything!                                                                                                                                                                                                                  
      Scrub showers and tubs, floors and kitchen area. Buyers will not pay for dirt. Clean windows are a must as well.
·         Have the carpets cleaned.                                                                                                    
This removes dirt and odors that you probably don’t see or smell.
·         Paint.                                                                                                                                 
Fresh new neutral colors tell the buyers the home is clean and up to date. If you have wallpaper on the walls, take it off. Did you know it costs a buyer $10,000 to remove wallpaper. (That’s how much they will deduct from the asking price.)
·         Update, Update, Update!                                                                                         
First of all, set a budget on how much you want or can afford to spend getting your home ready for the marketplace. Replace or paint anything brass including light fixtures, faucets, cabinet hardware. Brushed nickel is the best choice. You will know the home improvement store workers by name. You don’t have to spend a lot of money. Just make it look good! Updating kitchens and baths is essential for a quick sale. Update linens and bedding to neutral and fresh. Make sure you are appealing to both genders. Remember neutral doesn’t mean white or beige. We’re not talking boring! Pick out something you want to use in your new home as long as it goes with the other elements in the room.
Kitchen Cabinets—if yours need updating just give them a fresh coat of stain or paint and new hardware.
·         Pets.
Remove as much evidence of a pet as you can. Buyers don’t want what gets left behind.
I am here to help in any way I can.
It will look so good you may not want to move!
