Buyer Representation: All buyers need to be sure they are represented throughout the transaction, not just in finding a home.

When lending on homes stopped in 2008, it was a natural thing to draw from her forensic underwriting experience and help homeowners sell their home and get out from under the burden of a mortgage loan that they didn't understand and couldn't handle. Her understanding of the whole mortgage business became very valuable and in assisting clients negotiate with their lienholder prior to any designations or special training was popular.
Her love for working with people and helping them fulfill a need is her number one priority. Home ownership should be a dream and not a nightmare. It has been rewarding to see homeowners respond so well to a situation in their life and assisting them preserve their credit and be able to re-purchase a home in the future became a driving force.
