I have been a real estate agent for over 15 years but I don’t sell homes!
Over the years I have worked with may different buyers and sellers but it is not my job to sell a home….. I guide people through the process that will fulfill their personal dreams or needs, I assist people prepare for the largest financial decision of their lives, and I offer ongoing home information needed throughout the years they live in the home.
STARTING A FAMILY: Working with a newly married couple looking for the perfect home in the right neighborhood close to a great school so they can start a family….It is not my job to sell this couple a home, my job is to help this couple with their dream to start a family. Years after the sell when I visit the family in their home and watch how their kids have grown, I know that my job is much more important than the house, my job affects people’s lives and I couldn’t be more proud of that.
INVESTORS: Working with many investors…..It is not my job to sell them a home, my job is to help them expand their business portfolio. Finding a home for investors and assisting them with finding the perfect tenant. In the recent years many of my clients have decided to invest their money in real estate and I provide them with the information needed to make the best financial decision they can.
RELOCATION: I help people relocating to a new area get familiar with a neighborhood/city/state….. Moving to a new area is very stressful but I provide clients with the information needed to make the transition as smooth as possible. When relocating to a new area every client will have different needs that are important to them and I help them through the process. I am not selling them a home, I am helping them get familiar with a neighborhood, city or state.
FINANCIAL HARDSHIP: I assist people going through a financial hardship…. When someone is going through financial struggle or on the brink of loosing their home it is a very difficult time. I give my clients the information needed so they know how to navigate through the process. I advise them of all the different options and help them determine what the best decision is for their situation. I walk them through the process and I don’t sell their home, I help them get through a stressful financial struggle.
FIRST TIME HOME BUYERS: I help first time home buyers fulfill the American dream of owning a home… When making the biggest financial decision of your life it is important to have someone you trust guiding you along the way. I provide my first time home buyers with all the information they need so they know that they are making the right decision for them. I help my first time buyers figure out what they are looking for, what they want and what they need, and walk them through the entire process.
DIVORCE: I help couples going through a divorce communicate about important home decisions…. When helping divorcing couples I help both husband and wife make important decisions about the home they are selling as well as assist them both in finding new homes. The process can be very emotional, stressful and frustrating and the communication I provide helps both the husband and wife get through the process.
CHANGING HOME NEEDS: Many of my clients need to downsize after the children move out or move into a larger home when they have more children, When my clients need to sell their current home and buy a new home, they are concerned about moving from one home to the next. I work with multiple parties to ensure that the client has a seamless move from the old home to the new home.
ESCROW: The escrow process can be confusing. I provide information and guidance for my clients to assist them through the escrow process. I help my clients navigate the paperwork with confidence assurance throughout the entire escrow process.
LOAN INFORMATION AND REFINANCE: I provide lender information for both clients looking for new homes or wanting to re-finance their current loan…. giving my clients information is a huge part of my job. When you are purchasing a home or refinancing your loan years after, I help my clients obtain the loan information needed.
AREA REFERRALS: I offer referrals to contractors and service providers in the area…. Throughout the time people live in their home they sometime need the advise of a local contractor or service provider. I offer my clients references that may have been used by other past clients by keeping a referral database.
Just like in most jobs, as a Realtor I wear many hats. Working with people and helping them through the real estate process is my passion! I don’t sell homes…..I assist buyers and sellers with their real estate dreams, financial questions, lender information, etc.
I look forward to assisting you with your real estate needs……..
