Knowledge is PRICELESS!

I make buying or selling a home as stress free as possible.  Let me do all the work!

If you're selling your home, I can help you achieve your goals.  I will:

  • Help you establish a reasonable selling price within fair market value.
  • Coordinate the advertising of your home using Howard Hanna Smythe Cramer's guaranteed services (i.e. T.V Showcase, Internet, Money back guarantee, Newspaper advertising)
  • Market your home through the Multiple Listing Service (MLS).
  • Guide and Counsel you on the visual presentation of your property and suggest ways to enhance its marketability.
  • Pre-qualify buyers when possible. Coordinate details of your closing with all parties involved.

If you're purchasing a new home, I can help you find one that meets your needs. Once you've made your selection, I can assist you in acquiring financing, negotiating with the seller and completing the transaction. I will:

  • Research "comparable" properties to determine a fair price and terms.
  • Negotiate for the price, terms and conditions that are agreeable to you.
  • Work on your behalf to streamline your home search, first expanding your choices, then helping you narrow the field.
  • Prepare your Purchase Agreement and accompanying documents.
  • Follow-up with your Mortgage lender, Title Company, the Seller's agent and other's until I can present you with the keys to your dream home!

For an aggressive approach to real estate call me. I'll work endlessly to help you achieve your dreams. That is my top priority!

Buying a home can be one of your most significant investments in life. Not only are you choosing your dwelling place, and the place in which you will raise your family, you are most likely investing a large portion of your assets into this venture. The more prepared you are at the outset, the less overwhelming and chaotic the buying process will be.

I will work hard to not only find the perfect home for you, but also to handle every last detail of the purchase process, from negotiating the terms of sale to recommending moving companies.

Remember, if you have any questions about the process, I'm only a phone call or email away!
