I’m available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for all of your questions and concerns, big and small
If I were to sell real estate, what can you do for me?
Because of my background in marketing and advertising, I know that getting your property out there is the most important step to selling real estate. However, there is a fine line between the appropriate amount of advertising and over-doing it. I can help you walk that line.
What are your short and long term aspirations in your real estate career?
My short-term goals are to build up a reputable client base. I want to be the name people automatically think of when discussing real estate.

What do you like most about the real estate profession?
I love working with new people every day. All of my clients have a story to tell and I love to hear them.
What do you like least about the real estate profession?
Honestly, I don’t like the high turnaround rate of agents bouncing from agency to agency. I understand that this business is ever changing and that people are always moving around, but I am a person who likes to stay put.
