“I listen, educate, and communicate. For sellers, I structure comprehensive and creative marketing programs tailored to specific goals, with emphasis on achieving a smooth close of escrow. For buyers, I understand the importance of such a big decision and therefore, adjust my pace to yours. It is important for clients to know that I continually update my own education, training, and knowledge so that you have the most up to date legal/disclosure, marketing, and systems opportunities. In this market, that includes short sales and bank-owned properties. “

The concept of this website has been several years in the planning for me before it launched in the Fall 2007. I came to realize that the product did not exist until I learned about blogging. I wanted my visitors to have an online experience that is interactive and ever changing, yet with core features that remain constant and reliable. This site will not require registration to enjoy and learn from the properties, data, blogs, photos and other features. This site will give you the opportunity to add this site to your favorite reader (RSS), to leave comments for other visitors, and to find numerous links to my connections and network of resources. I hope you find it informative, useful, and occasionally entertaining. Thank you for visiting and of course I welcome contact any time.
