Who I Am
I am a real estate consultant who believes strongly in professionalism and customer satisfaction and am successful only if I get you the results you want and need. I specialize in finding solutions to your real estate needs. I treat each client as if they are the ONLY client I have and will do everything I can to make sure the home buying experience is a happy one. I am a certified Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource (SFR) specialist and work with an experienced team of professionals to ensure your short sale goes smoothly and with as little stress as possible.
My business background and work in human resources has given me a keen understanding of the needs of my customers and also about the detail and precision needed to close the deal and keep everyone happy. I don't skimp or cut corners and stay in close communication with my clients from contract to closing.
I became certified as a Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES) because I was concerned about how many of our mature adults were being treated in their real estate transaction. As a baby boomer that has gone through transitions myself, I understand the unique needs and preferences of the 50+ age group. I can provide them with the care and consideration they deserve, whether it is to age in place or move to an assisted facility.
My clients never have to wonder about the status of their listing or showings, as I stay in close contact with them using whatever technology they are most comfortable with. I take pride in the high caliber of my work and the high level of

I'm a mother of two daughters and two wonderful grandsons who never cease to amaze me with their energy and curiosity. They certainly keep me on my toes.
I also love music (all kinds), videos, travel and crafts. I make many of my own silk arrangements and sew when I get the time. I love traveling and have visited places like London, England; Copenhagen, Sweden; Luxemburg, Venice, Italy; and Paris, France. I'd love to travel to the Mediterranean, the Caribbean and to Alaska to see the whales before they're gone and the icebergs melt.
I am also interested in social issues such as health care reform and animal rights. I believe we should help protect those that are helpless, defenseless or less fortunate than we are. Sharing the wealth doesn't mean just money, but time and effort. Volunteering at one of your favorite charities is an excellent way to give back.
What Others Say About Me
My clients comment on the attention I give to each of their unique needs and requirements; particularly the speed, accuracy and detail when I respond to their requests, or even when I am able to provide them with valuable information they didn't know they needed.
"My husband and I decided we were ready to purchase our first home. After searching online for homes we saw one we wanted to look at and contacted Bernadine about it. After meeting with her we made her our realtor. We couldn't have asked for a better agent. She helped us look through many homes, being very honest about each one we looked at. Never trying to 'sell' us on this one or that one. She was genuinely interested in helping us find the home of OUR dreams. Once we did, she was available all through the closing process for questions and even after we moved in! We would recommend Bernadine to anyone in search of, or selling, a home. Bernadine is a top notch realtor and a great person." :-)
One client wrote, "She is not only totally professional, but also very personable and sensitive to her client's needs. I know she is the person I will call whenever I want to do this again." Another client wrote, "She is professional, honest, hard working and will look out for your best interest."
Another client continues to praise me for going above and beyond in helping get her deceased father's home sold. I stayed in close contact with the attorney, scheduled appointments for repair contractors, and assisted her in talking with the bank. She is so appreciative of the work I did when I just could have walked away and left her frustrated trying to deal with it all alone.
In a recent very difficult transaction involving an estate sale, I was the primary liaison between attorney, client, buyer's broker and loan officer. This transaction involved many twists and turns that I was able to navigate for my client. It was tough getting to closing, but in the end it gave me a great sense of achievement knowing I helped a friend save her family home from foreclosure.
