"The student becomes the teacher" is the best way to describe my real estate career. After buying and selling 7 of my personal residences in a little over a decade, I realized have a unique perspective to share with my clients. I can empathize with every type buyer and seller as I have literally sat in their chair. My background in economics, market trends, and seasonality gives me a unique perspective to understand market nuances around selling or buying a home. My negotiation skills, honed over years of negotiating for both buying and selling, help me to achieve the best terms for my clients as they buy or sell a home.
My clients appreciate that I take the time to walk through every step of the home buying/selling process with them. In my initial meeting with a first-time buyer, I will go over upfront costs the buyer will be responsible for before closing. I also discuss with them the timing of the contract and getting the proper paperwork to lenders when needed. My attention to contract dates and writing offers make my clients moves much less stressful. I often hear "I never thought we would be able to buy a home so quickly" or "You made our dream come true" from my clients.
My clients who are relocating either into or out of the area appreciate my attention to their transaction in their absence. Many of my personal moves were relocation moves and I understand the value of a reliable and attentive set of eyes and ears on the ground to handle the transaction. These clients also appreciate my ability to vet a potential agent for them to help them find someone they are happy with in their other location. My clients that have utilized this service have all mentioned how much they appreciated my finding them an agent that will take the best care of them.
