As a real estate professional it is my obligation and duty to handle every Client (both buyers and sellers) with the utmost care making their individual transaction run as efficiently and as stress free as possible. I will strive to begin the relationship with all Professionalism and Courtesy such that the client will have the utmost reliability and trust in me while being able to enjoy the process at the same time. Once the needs of the individuals have been understood, those qualities will continue by building on that relationship by honestly confronting all foreseeable problems in advance, and setting initiatives that will handle any unforeseeable problems efficiently and with as little stress as possible while making the transaction execute in the most timely manner possible. And finally, continue in the relationship that will survive the individual transaction in a way that the trust and camaraderie can continue indefinitely.
Customer service is key in building relationships! Honesty is not only a fiduciary responsibility to the client, but a foundation to Customer Service. Loyalty is another fiduciary responsibility that makes another corner of the foundation that builds trust and camaraderie. It is my goal to make sure that you (the client) will not be dis-satisfied with my services!

My Real Estate carreer begain in 1996. In my first year in Real Estate, I earned the prestigious "Rookie of the Year" award in the largest "First Real Estate" office in the city... First Real Estate later merged with JRS and became Realty South.
At the merger, my broker decided to step up and open a new RE/Max office, I moved with her and the rest is history. A Successful Career has continued over the years.
My average Listings "Days on the Market" for the last 13 years is only 75 days...
