People know your name, not your story.
I am not just a Realtor®…. I am a person who has had a full and extensive career and an interesting life. And I plan on keeping it that way!
Each person, each client is an individual, different from the last. This is what keeps life and my career exciting.
I have owned my own brokerage firms and have held the position of Designated Broker with real estate firms in both California and Arizona.
My job is not just to show houses to buyers and help sellers sell, but to facilitate negotiations so that all parties have their desires and directions effectively communicated to the other party throughout the entire process. That makes for successful real estate transactions where both parties win. It is not about me, it is about, you, the clients - always. It is also about knowing the contract extensively (which I do, I have taught contract classes to hundreds of agents).
I am also a published author with a major luxury real estate magazine and have over 15 articles published to date.
Real estate is a business transaction, but so much more is involved: joy, fear, financial commitment, the stress of moving, change, new location, new friends, new job, new schools, retirement and downsizing, expanding family, etc. My patience, understanding, extensive knowledge of the industry, and a sense of humor and lightness (when appropriate) go a long way to make the real estate journey more pleasant.
I have had many successes in my life, some obstacles and some failures. These are the things that have made me who I am and have translated into how I handle my life and my business. Nothing is taken for granted....
