When I was a kid, my father bought and sold a curious assortment of Real Estate: a rambler in the suburbs; a farm-house on 100 acres; a fairytale Tudor in a swanky neighborhood; a mountain home in Colorado. As Dad drove me around neighborhoods, I developed an instinctive sense for value. And as Dad put me to work on projects, I learned what is behind the walls! I continued the hands-on work as an adult. I worked on the crew for a high-end Seattle builder constructing a Queen Anne view home, and I remodeled my own homes in Ballard and Magnolia.
Before long, I discovered that my house-knowledge and my strong communication skills could combine to make me an exceptional Realtor. I now bring all my skills and abilities to my Real Estate clients.
For Sellers, I have a profound ability to find “the story” in your house. People are not motivated to purchase four walls and a roof. They are motivated to enter into a story where a home creates a backdrop for life. My skill is discerning the best story your house can tell. Everything about your house—location, condition, placement on the lot—contributes to this story. Everyone on my team, from stagers to photographers, is coached to produce this story with perfection. The results are extremely successful for my sellers—both personally and financially.
For Buyers, I am a passionate advocate and a caring coach. I create a process where you learn to ask the right questions: of yourselves, of the house, of me. I will teach you everything I know so you can decide confidently whether a house will truly advance your story--not only meeting your needs, but moving your life forward. Once you’ve made that decision, I will hold nothing back in negotiating on your behalf. For my buyers, this results in a confident, shrewd, well-coached, and (as much as possible) stress-free purchase!
I have experienced first-hand the guts of a house, and the risks and rewards of purchasing Real Estate. The best proof I can give of my value comes through reviews of my clients. Please see my reviews below. They are from actual clients who were once in your position, deciding who to work with. I will deliver the same value to you!
