I believe that when you are passionate about what you do, it’s enjoyable to be working. I get the opportunity to work with clients on some, if not the most important financial decisions of their lives. Making a difference by guiding them through each element of buying or selling is rewarding. Real estate has become a more complex process and being able to make it less stressful for my clients is gratifying.
Sellers need a counselor who will make sure that all bases are covered so that, when their property is sold, we both know that the disclosures provided were complete and that we attained the highest possible price for their property. Buyers need the guidance mostly about quality, the importance of inspections, review all history of a property, location and the negotiations involved. Even if they have bought and sold before, it is still unfamiliar territory.
When I started in real estate, it was my goal to offset the negative reputation of other agents and promise to be a good communicator. Every client deserves the feeling of them being a top priority regardless of how many other clients you have at that time. I find it a positive challenge to handle difficult situations because resolving these for my clients is my job.
The biggest compliment is knowing that my clients appreciate all the small details I address to ensure that everything goes smoothly. They recognize that I love my work as I’ve remained enthused because there’s not a better product to sell than a home. Also, the commitment to giving good service comes from my last career – several sales and management positions at Nordstrom.
