Get to Know Me
I Believe in Partnership
Do you find Realtors difficult to work with? Well, I’m a very “what you see is what you get” kind of person. Open, honest, and to the point. If I have a vice that people tease me for, it’s that I’m always early—with appointments and with deadlines. I do what it takes to get your home sold in the least amount of time, for the most money, and with the fewest hassles.
I work best with people who want to work with me, who respect my expertise, and who want to achieve their real estate goals–whether that is selling a home, investing in real estate, or purchasing their dream home.
Pleasant and easy to work with is how people describe me. I don’t chase. I don’t hound. Instead, I get to know you, your goals, and work to make them a reality.
Feedback doesn’t hurt my feelings—I see it as an opportunity to learn and to grow. I take pride in my work and in helping others achieve their goals.
Together, we’ll get your real estate goals achieved.
I Believe in Listening
In order for me to be effective as your Realtor, I have to learn about you, your home, and your real estate goals. That can’t happen if I’m the one doing all the talking.
Instead, I listen. Really listen. And, I ask intriguing questions to help me (and you) understand your motivations, your home, and your ultimate real estate goals and aspirations.
I’m analytical, a strong researcher, hard worker, life-long leanrer, and voracious reader. A great combination for a real estate listing specialist.
I Believe in Coaching and Educating My Clients
During 2016 I completed coursework and certification as a professional coach. Those skills blend perfectly with the way that I work with real estate sellers, investors, and buyers.
The Wikipedia definition of a coach fits perfectly: Coaching is a form of development in which a person called a coach supports a learner or client in achieving a specific personal or professional goal by providing training, advice and guidance. The learner is sometimes called a coachee. Occasionally, coaching may mean an informal relationship between two people, of whom one has more experience and expertise than the other and offers advice and guidance as the latter learns; but coaching differs from mentoring in focusing on specific tasks or objectives, as opposed to general goals or overall development.
I Believe in Effective Marketing
During 2016, I decided to up my marketing game by studying copywriting and became an AWAI verified copywriter. Those skills mean that I can write more effective marketing materials to get your home sold.
