Real Estate

As a professional real estate agent, my extensive knowledge of the current real estate market can help you, whether you are considering buying or selling your home.  My mission in serving home sellers and homebuyers is simple:

Strategy matters and passion rules.  Client’s interests come first.  Whether you’re an investor, first time buyer, or ready to sell your home, you receive personalized customer service with the highest ethical standards and expertise to accomplish your goals.

Buying and selling your home is an emotional and financial commitment.  I am here with the confidence needed and excellent communication skills to assist you through a seamless transaction.

I specialize in prepping my listings for market.  My team includes painters, gardeners, handymen, window cleaners, house cleaners, contractors, movers, my staging assistant, myself, and every resource you could possibly need!  I drive the entire process on your behalf while helping you with anything that will bring you more money from the sale of the property.  My listings enjoy “loans” of my own staging items: furniture, art, linens, etc.  I also work with buyers and have a well-established record of helping my clients to buy the homes of their dreams.  Read my referral letters!
