Not Your Typical Realtor. Not Your Typical Realtor Bio.

You loathe typical real estate agent bios. Donít worry, I do too. Theyíre like cardboard -- stiff, bland, and identical to every other bio out there. Instead of boasting ad nauseum about awards and accomplishments youíre not interested in, Iím taking the novel approach of actually giving you what you want -- real answers to questions youíre probably wondering right now.


Will you return my calls and emails?

Yes. Without question. I realize this is one of the major frustrations the general public has with dealing with agents. I get dozens of calls and emails daily, and I work hard to reply as quickly as possible.


Iíve met many Realtors who are jerks. Are you?

Depends on who you ask. If you ask certain agents who have stood between my clients and their real estate goals, they'll probably say "yes". A handful of people think I leave golden footprints in the sand. Those are the two extremes, and most people's opinion falls somewhere in the middle.

Here's what I can tell you: I'm honest and candid. I take pride in being approachable and friendly. And if you need a quick real estate brain, or a strong dose of honesty, youíre in the right place.  As your Realtor, I will be an advocate for you. Whether you are buying, selling or rent. Loyalty to family, clients, and friends is one of my core values. Want to really find out if Iím a jerk? Mess with one of those people.

Do You Have experience doing exactly what I need?  
Until you tell me what you need, there is no way of knowing.

These are "strong suits" of mine:

∑       Working with the Sellers

∑       Working this the Buyer

∑       Rent

∑       Aggressive Marketing

∑       If your goal or situation isn't represented on that list, don't worry. Contact me anyway. If I can't help, I can get you referred to another agent who can.


What kind of work are you really good at?

On a personal level, I'm pretty good at cooking (I make a mean lasagna and yummy borsch!), and I'm not too shabby at gardening (Iíve been told I have a green thumb).

On a professional level, here are the skill-sets that Iíve developed over the years:

Listening. Unfortunately, itís a lost art these days.
If you are selling, I will work with you to get you the fairest price, in the least amount of time, by using state of the art technology, team collaboration and RE/MAX superior marketing materials.
If you are buying, I will work hard to provide you with the best information and market data to inform and assist you so you can be a well equipped buyer with the strongest possible negotiating position.  I do understand that buying and selling real estate can be stressful. And I will work hard to lower your stress level and make your experience as pleasurable as possible.
