How can I help you?

With more than 30 years experience buying and selling real estate, I can help you to achieve a smooth and stress free experience whether buying or selling, by expertly guiding you through the proper steps required for a successful real estate transaction. It is not a difficult process if you have a trusted advisor to lean on.


As a seller, you have one main goal. To sell your home for the highest possible price while meeting your timeline. I can help you achieve that goal by putting a customized marketing plan in place for your property that will get your home in front of the most people in the shortest amount of time. This is the key to selling real estate in today’s market. Some agents use the “list and hope” approach and let other agents bring them buyers. I don’t use that approach. I will actively market your property and I won’t stop until it is sold!


As a buyer, your main goal is to find a home that meets or exceeds your needs at a price you can afford. I have extensive experience negotiating purchases and achieving the terms that the buyer needs to complete the purchase. Let me walk you through the home buying process step by step so that you will be qualified and ready when you find that perfect home!
