Business Philosophy
Education is key since buying or selling a home is a major decision financially and emotionally.   Educating clients concerning the process, the contracts and the resources available is vital, so informed decisions are made. Buyers must have adequate information on a home they are bidding on. Good communication helps to maintain an open and trusting relationship between client and agent. I strive to do my best in educating and communicating with clients so the transaction is successful and that the overall experience is positive. As a selling agent  I have high standards to ensure that properties are prepared and marketed correctly. Sellers must also be informed about the factors that affect the home selling process.
