My Client First Philosophy!
I began my real estate career in 1985 at a well-known and respected local brokerage. The first day on the job I noticed many agents hanging around in the office as my manager took me to a desk with a phone and told me to go to it. I was truly independent and on my own. Coming out of real estate school, most agents don’t know the questions to ask much less the answers. Many rely on luck! I certainly didn’t have a start-up plan, but by trial and error, the school of hard knocks taught me the questions to ask to get the answers that the successful agents knew.
It is my experience as a real estate professional, that providing the very best service is essentially knowing the tasks and activities needed that place my clients first while helping them reach their goals and dreams. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, responding quickly to needs, utilizing the latest technologies, researching market data, having strong negotiation and contract skills, marketing savvy, and access to a high quality professional network.
My expertise is in real estate sales, training, negotiations, contracts, and mortgage finance. I provide agents, home buyer’s and seller’s information and services that build personal strategies and solutions to help them make informed decisions. I am a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) and have also received the prestigious GRI designation. I have decades of hands-on experience in the residential real estate industry and the Twin Cities home market.
I am an active agent and I have the number #1 fastest growing team at RE/MAX Results!
