Buying or selling a home will be one of the biggest financial transactions of your lifetime. Whether you are a first-time home buyer or selling your long-time family home, you want to know that you have access to all of the important resources you will need throughout the process. And you want to partner with a real estate agent who will consult with you about your goals and concerns, and educate you through every step of the process, as well as have a variety of highly qualified partners to help you along the way - mortgage lenders, insurance agents, home inspectors, and skilled tradespeople, to name a few.
My website is one of many tools I use to help my clients and those just starting to think about the process of buying or selling a home gain access to valuable information. Use the search feature to look for homes in your desired area and price point. Read about buying foreclosures or staging your home for sale. And if you have a question - please call or email me. Real estate can be confusing, even for the experienced buyer and seller, and my goal is to make it as easy as possible.
A few words about me...
I have had a passion for homes and design since I was a little girl. That passion led me to leave a senior position at one of the nation's largest banks to purchase an interior design studio and showroom. My timing wasn't great, though - we had one good year before we started to feel the effects of the recession, and I found my way to real estate. I find it to be a perfect blend of my love of homes and the financial, legal and sales experience gained from my earlier career. My successful prior experience working with senior trust clients led to my pursuit of a specialty designation as a Seniors Real Estate Specialist and a Certified Aging in Place Specialist. My love of design led to my becoming a Certified Staging Agent, and ultimately, to owning my own separate design business, Renovate and Redesign. And my work doing corporate training gives me a solid background to educate my clients about all of the aspects of the sometimes complicated home purchase or sale process.
What is a "concierge" real estate agent?
Many people think they don't need a real estate agent at all in today's world of technology. After all, they can find property themselves on the internet and call the listing agent, or market their home as a FSBO. They don't realize how many other steps are involved in the process, and the pitfalls that can occur along the way.
My goal is to add value to every step of the real estate process, and when I can't directly perform a service, to be able to refer my clients to highly qualified professionals who can. If you are considering buying or selling a home, I would welcome the opportunity to consult with you and tell you more about the concierge-level service you can expect from me.
