My Promise to you: I strive to provide the highest quality of service emphasizing integrity, honesty, positive energy, hard work and creative solutions in every aspect of your real estate transaction. I work with both buyers and sellers providing customized care and education to fit your specific needs, wants and desires. I believe communication, trust and reliability are key factors in every transaction from start to finish. My education and work history in management, architecture, art and design has given me specialized skills and extensive experience to provide you expert home advice on every level. As the market changes, so do the challenges of being a competitive buyer and seller. I'm able to provide you current and relevant information about our local market and surrounding areas giving you the competitive edge you deserve. I promise to put 100% into every aspect of our journey together!
Buying: I have a process to buying depending on your level of experience or knowledge. It always starts with taking the time to ask the right questions so I can better understand your unique situation to better serve you. I can explain financing options and recommend local lenders. I am your full service guide providing on-site education as we see and discuss different features in homes. I am happy to show you as many or as few homes as it takes for you to feel comfortable and confident to make the right decision. I have a flexible schedule and work around what suites you best. I'll help you navigate the offer process, home inspection, appraisal and finally the closing process all while working closely with your lender to the end. I'll provide you tips and tools for maintaining your home for years to come.
Selling: I offer various degrees of assistance preparing your home for sale from helpful tips to hands on help. I offer a free, no strings attached pricing report, suggestions and steps to get your specific home in its very best show condition resulting in higher returns, less inconveniences and shorter time on the market. Minor repair work or conditional issues are not uncommon but can negatively impact your sale. If possible its best to address and fix these issues prior to listing. I can assist finding the right trusted trade professionals for the task.
PHOTOGRAPHY: Your home only has one chance to make a good first impression. Its starts on-line with quality photos! I only use professional grade photos to capture and showcase the amenities and unique details of your home.
Staging: I offer partial or full service staging services for every type of property small or large. I can work with your existing furnishing, bring in items or a combination of both to enhance the features of your home. In addition to the importance of accurate pricing and quality on-line photos is how a potential buyer "feels" when they enter for the first time. Many sellers struggle with making subjective decisions about their own furnishings and decor. Staging is not the same as decorating! Think of it this way, when the for-sale sign goes up, this is no longer your home. Now it's your investment. Do you want to get the maximum return? The temperature, the smell, proper lighting, furniture placement, wall decor, pleasing colors and textures, de-cluttering, proper storage and depersonalizing are just a few of the things I can help you tackle. This is a very personalized process. Its up to you how involved you would like me to be. I can't tell you how many times I have heard..."I never knew my house could look this good! Why didn't I do this years ago?"
Personal info/Hobbies: I love any and all things D.I.Y. I build, paint, draw, sculpt, weld, woodwork, sew, remodel. There are no limits to being artful and creative. Nothing pleases me more than to re purpose "junk". My wonderful husband and I love cooking and hosting family and friends at our home. We enjoy cruising the family around in our classic cars and going to the lake. I have many gardens, lots of pets and 3 busy little boys. The privilege of being "Mom" will always be my proudest and greatest achievement.
