I'M A REALTOR, DESIGNER, FLIPPER, DEAL FANATIC, BLOGGER, FUTURE TV HOST AND ALL AROUND HOUSE-A-HOLIC!
Wisconsin born and raised, I later attended the University of Minnesota, where I pursued degrees in Interior Architecture and Communication Studies. After college, I made my way South and found myself in Phoenix where I got my first taste of the real estate by helping create a profitable portfolio of over 60 residential rental properties in Arizona and California. I helped to make it happen by sourcing the properties, acquisition, doing affordable remodels, renting them, and managing them as well. In the process of doing these homes, I expanded into flipping houses and that brings me to where I am today. In the last five years, I've flipped and designed over 50 homes with resale prices ranging from $100k - $1.8m. I've got a fantastic team and couldn't do it without them because together, we turn houses into homes.
In the process of all of this experience, I became a Realtor myself. As a seller's agent, I'm an asset to you because I can help design your home to sell. We see our own homes differently then buyers do, therefore it's important to make those simple changes that will help make your home stand out amongst the rest. Typically sellers don't want to put money into a home that they are selling, but when that small investment gets a full return and then some - It makes sense. Not only that, but so many people try to sell their homes vacant and typically this works against them. I stage homes as part of the commission structure so that every house feels like a home. My staging creates an emotional connection with buyers that allows them to imagine themselves living there and as a result - Creates offers. The biggest part of the DESIGN2SELL concept, is that it caters to our market today. Homes are usually sold "online" because buyers spend hours looking at photos before they actually get in the car to see it in person. Therefore as a seller, you need an agent that can do more then just put a sign in the yard - You need an agent that can make your property stand out so that it's at the top of every buyer's "must-see" list!
As a buyer's agent, I can help you re-imagine what you see in front of you. So many people have a challenge seeing beyond the cosmetic issues to actually understand the real potential of the house. This is not for everyone, but if you want to find your own fixer upper and embrace some DIY action - I can help you find the house with the most potential and offer you a complementary design consultation to help you get the biggest bang for your buck. If you can't afford your dream house just yet, then this is the importance and value of the DESIGN2BUY concept because it allows you to create your own dream home. The most important thing to determine before buying a home is location, because it cannot be changed. Everything else has possibilities and it's important for you to have an agent that can help share that with you from their own experience.
Buying? Selling? Flipping? Investing? I'm ready if you are!
