Business Philosophy

I have been a licensed professional real estate agent for over twenty nine years. It is a tremendous challenge and opportunity to work ‘one-on-one’ with individuals and families who are facing their greatest financial decision: buying or selling a home. My total dedication to all of my clients is a sincere approach for relocating people locally and nationally as painless as humanly possible. With an 'extra effort' and 'people caring ' attitude, I am personally involved in every aspect of a transaction, and one of the most important factors, is to be an exceptional listener. To learn the wants and needs and expectations of a client, is the only method in garnering their confidence and trust. Once the direction has been established, then my expertise and market knowledge can explore all the options in obtaining the ideal match between buyers and sellers. I attribute my continuing success to the philosophy and commitment, that each and every client is my top priority. In return, my reward has been in acquiring lasting friendships with many wonderful clients.
