Honest, straight forward and hard working defines my work ethic. My goal is to make the process seamless whether you are buying or selling with some laughs along the way. My business background, I was a practicing certified public accountant, has prepared me to thoughtfully review and analyze each detail. When representing buyers I work hard to find the property that fits just right, negotiate the deal, work with lenders, manage the due diligence process and see that the closing is smooth. On the seller's side: I prepare and review a detailed comparative market analysis; advise on the appropriate pricing strategy for the current market conditions; assist on completing the mandatory disclosures; prepare a pre-sale disclosure package; coordinate the staging; prepare the marketing materials which include the property brochure, print and internet advertising, website and social media; qualify the buyers and negotiate the sale; work with the appraisers and the inspectors and then happily accompany the sellers to the closing. Innately curious, I thoroughly enjoy the broad assortment of real estate and fascinating people I meet from young to mature; artists to bankers.
