When experience matters!!
In today’s unique and challenging real estate world, selecting the Realtor that will serve YOU is critical. Short sales, foreclosures, and even traditional sales in specific areas all require focused expertise, and as they say “there is no substitute for experience.” Selecting a full-time agent with a varied and successful professional history, affords you the best opportunity to reach your home buying/selling goals.
Staying on the Same Page
If you believe that buying or selling a home is one of the more significant financial events in the average person’s lifetime, then we are working from vital common ground. Our approach is to treat each step of the process with this foundational belief in mind.
What Makes Me Different
Real estate advertisements, colorful signs and even a set of initials after your name, can make Realtors all appear largely the same. I strive to be unique and provide more service than most in so many ways. Here are some examples of “difference makers” that I employ with all of my clients.
EDUCATE on the home buying and selling process and arrive at expectations together from the very beginning. Helping you understand the subtleties of bank owned properties, investor flips, new builds and even traditional sales is the best way for you to make informed choices.
NEGOTIATION SKILLS are critical. While price is a major element, it is far from the only one of importance. I help buyers get the home they want from A-Z and I can help sellers get their home sold with the right terms.
MANAGE the complete transaction. “Stuff Happens” in virtually every sale or purchase. Some elements, such as what is happening on the other side of the transaction, are outside of our immediate control and require tenacity and diplomacy. Working diligently to manage the flow of the contract and the timelines within makes a huge difference in having a smooth transaction. With detailed understanding of the Washington Real Estate contracts, I can, and do, hold all parties accountable.
COMMUNICATION is key. Keeping all parties informed throughout the process cannot be overstated enough. I strive to treat all persons in a transaction how we would want to be treated. This is particularly important for first time home buyers, someone new to Washington, or out of area clients, but the same standards of service are applied with every one of my clients.
PHYSICAL SUPPORT to the entire buying and selling process. I attend events such as home inspections, pest inspections and actually are present for closings, lending experience and expertise when you need it.
I RETURN CALLS. It’s hard to believe this has to be stated, but it is a vital element in how I conduct business. Calls are returned quickly and always the same business day. This happens for my clients, potential clients, other agents, lenders, and any other parties to transactions. And I am available 7 days a week via email, text or phone.
I surround myself with a like-minded, superior TEAM of loan officers, home inspectors, title and escrow agents, and even pest inspection professionals for the highest level of service in virtually every aspect of the transaction.
I have AREA SPECIFIC KNOWLEDGE. If you need someone that knows Thurston, Pierce, Greys Harbor or Lewis County area then I am your Realtor. I live, work and volunteer here and know the area in great detail. My goal is NOT to be all things to all people, rather to be the BEST thing for the people who wish to join me in this geographic area, share like expectations, and allow me to put my successful methods to work for them.
In closing, with my extensive background in corporate America, and successes in ‘ground up’ small business, I have found myself well prepared and suited for a Real Estate career. I treat it seriously, like a business…YOUR BUSINESS!! I hope to get a chance to do business together, with you.
Thank you for taking your time to look at my web site and if you have any questions regarding specific properties or any questions in regards to Real Estate please reach out to me, I am always available to help.
