Brunswick Office, OH

Brunswick, OH 44212

I am a full-time Realtor® located in the Brunswick, Ohio office.  As a member of the National Association of REALTORS®, the Ohio Association of REALTORS®, and locally of the Medina County Board of REALTORS® I get involved with a number of local community activities. 

I grew up in Parma but have lived in the Medina/Lorain County area for 20+ years.  I also taught high school in the Midview school district (Grafton, Ohio) as well as substitute taught in the Brunswick, Medina, Buckeye and Highland school districts.  Teaching in these various school districts inspired me to promote community involvement with parents, children, the business arena, and other teachers.  We have that same community involvement within the Brunswick Howard Hanna team of realtors, management and support.  This past educational background and current real estate family connection provides me with the best of both worlds to assist clients in selling and/or finding their home(s).

Over the past 10 years there has been a dramatic change in the way people search for their homes.  The Internet is now a buyer’s first look!!  Not only do I have memberships with Zillow and, but I also have the connection in my office which brings me news before a home even hits the market.  This keeps me one step ahead of the competition.

I am involved with the Housing Opportunity Committee (a program under the National Association of Realtors of Medina County) which helps to educate and promote housing among area residents.  I also support several charitable fundraising events including Children’s Free Care Fund (Choo Choo Chow Chow), Autism, Breast Cancer, Pancreatic Cancer, the Oaks Family Care Center and the Salvation Army. 

I love discovering many of the hidden treasures in Ohio’s wonderful Cultural communities, parks and lakes such as Severance Hall and Playhouse Square, the Metro parks, Hinckley Lake, and Lake Erie to name a few.  If you are looking for some ideas on where to go to enjoy Ohio’s four seasons, please give me a call!!!

But more importantly, if you are looking for an agent who will treat you as if you were a part of her family, please give me a call.  I am happy to show you homes in all of northeast/west Ohio!!!, And, please, go to my website and read the “Testimonials” from some of my clients so you may discover firsthand how my clients feel/felt about their real estate experiences with me.  I would be happy to meet with you to discuss the real estate market and what we need to do to bring you to your first or next real estate adventure!

Preparing Your Home for Sale

Let your home smile a welcome to buyers...
With a little effort on your part, you home can be sold more quickly and at a better price. These 20 tips have proved invaluable to owners and are worth your special attention.

Preparation for Showing

  1. First impressions are lasting. The front door greets the prospect. Make sure it is fresh and clean. Keep the lawn trimmed and edged, and the yard free of refuse. In winter, be sure snow and ice are removed from walkways and steps.
  2. Decorate for a quick sale. Faded walls and worn woodwork reduce appeal. Why try to tell a prospect how your home COULD look, when you can show by redecorating? Neutral colors fit with any buyer's color scheme, and a new touch of paint will often result in a quick, profitable sale.
  3. Let the daylight shine in! Open draperies and curtains and let the prospect see how cheerful your home can be (dark rooms do not appeal).
  4. Fix that faucet! Dripping water discolors sinks and suggests faulty plumbing.
  5. Repairs can make a big difference. Loose knobs, sticking doors and windows, warped cabinet drawers and other minor flaws detract from home value. Have them fixed. (When prospects see things that need attention, they begin to worry about things they can't see.)
  6. From top to bottom. Display the full value of your attic, basement and other utility space by removing all unnecessary articles.
  7. Safety first. Keep stairways clear. Avoid a cluttered appearance and possible injuries.
  8. Make closets look bigger. Neat, well-ordered closets show that the space is ample.
  9. Bathrooms help sell homes. Check and repair caulking in bathtubs and showers. Make this room sparkle.
  10. Arrange bedrooms neatly. Remove excess furniture. Use attractive bedspreads and freshly laundered curtains.
  11. Can you see the light? Illumination is like a welcome sign. The potential buyer will feel a flowing warmth when you turn on lights for an evening presentation.
  12. Clean, Fresh Floor Coverings. It isn't uncommon to either clean or replace all carpeting and other floor covering to maximize interior appeal.


Showing the House

  1. Three's a crowd. Avoid having too many people present during showing and inspections. The potential buyer will feel like an intruder and will hurry through the house.
  2. Music is mellow. But not when showing a house. Turn off the blaring radio or television. Let the salesperson and buyer talk, free of disturbances.
  3. Pets underfoot? Keep them out of the way... preferably out of the house in consideration of those afraid of or allergic to cats and dogs.
  4. Silence is golden. Be courteous but don't force conversation with the potential buyer. He wants to inspect your house, not pay a social call.
  5. Be it ever so humble. Never apologize for the appearance of your home. After all, it has been lived in. Let the trained salesperson answer any objections.
  6. Stay in the background. The salesperson who knows the buyer's requirements can better emphasize the features of your home when you don't tag along. You will be called if needed.
  7. Why put the cart before the horse? Trying to dispose of furniture and furnishing to the potential buyer before he has purchased the house often loses a sale.
  8. Word to the wise. Let your Howard Hanna Sales Associate discuss price, terms, possession and other factors with the buyer. The Howard Hanna sales associate is best qualified to bring negotiations to a favorable conclusion.
  9. Howard Hanna Sales Associate sell better. Show your home to prospective buyers only by appointment (or scheduled Open House event) through your Howard Hanna Sales Associate office. Your cooperation will be appreciated and will help close the sale more quickly.
