More About Me

My Experience and Philosophy

I am a full time professional in a challenging profession that I love and enjoy. My goal since day one was to deliver extraordinary service resulting in clients for life. I'm truly thankful and blessed that I am able to thrive in this business due to my past clients who continuously refer their friends and family to me. All my clients and the brokers that I do business with are treated with respect, patience, honesty and integrity.

     In 1982, I started my career in the real estate industry working for various brokers and builders as a receptionist on up to sales and marketing assistant. In 1993, I joined Windermere Real Estate in Monroe as a newly licensed real estate broker. Learning from the bottom up has enabled me to understand every aspect of my profession. Always patient, professional, honest and fair with every client & broker that I do business with has generated a 75% referral-based business for me. I believe what I practice... Treat others as you would expect to be treated and what goes around comes around.

Home Sellers

he most important decision a home seller will make in the home selling process is choosing the right broker to represent them in the sale of their largest asset. It can be the difference between a happy and exciting experience that nets them top dollar for their home versus a long, painful experience that leaves their hard-earned money on the table. It's all about representation.

     My goal as a listing broker is to net my seller client the most of money possible while making the selling process as easy and stress free as possible. Over the last 27+ years, I've experienced just about every situation you could imagine. From these experiences, I have developed a way of selling homes that streamlines the sale of my listings from available to sold quickly, efficiently and for top dollar. I WORK DIFFERENTLY THAN MOST REAL ESTATE BROKERS. My seller clients and buyer's brokers are loving this new business model!

     With every interview, I provide a Seller Guide outlining my listing and sale process, my list versus sales price statistics, my education, resume, past sales and client reviews. It's important to me that what I say and do are verified by data. For every seller client, I offer complimentary home staging and professional photos including aerial photography as a courtesy for listing your home with me.

Home Buyers

     The most important decision a buyer will make in the home buying process is choosing the right Broker to represent them. There are so many variables that go into a successful home search and preparing and presenting a competitive offer. I am skilled at listening to what a buyer wants so I can weed out homes that do not fit into their perimeters thus saving both a lot of time. I guide my home buyers from beginning to end, starting with referring them to a lender to get pre-approved for their home loan to reviewing closing documents to make sure they are correct. I also do a complimentary market analysis on any home they'd like to purchase to give them my honest opinion of value. In my opinion, there is nothing worse than a buyer overpaying for a home due to lake of representation. I have the experience and proven success to ensure that my buyers go into the home buying process educated and prepared.
