As an expert in the Birmingham area, I credit my success to a simple formula: a keen sense of the market, I listen & understand the needs of each customer and I'm dependable. Call me at 248-318-6282
A few things you should know about me...
Ahhh.... all the things I can tell you about myself. How much time do you have?
First let me tell you that I'm NOT going to go down in history as one of the great Bloggers in the world. BUT I'm trying. Visit me at www.Destination48009.com to read all about Birmingham and the entire Woodward Cooridor. However, with hardwork and determination, I could be known as one of the great Realtors. Here are a few things you may want to know about me...
I believe that how we live is more important than where we live.
Buying and selling real estate isn't "one-size-fits-all". Your house is a reflection of you. The process of buying and selling real estate can also be a reflection of you. This means as a buyer's agent I need to listen closely and really hear what is important to you.
When I look for your next home, I need to keep in mind how you like to fill your space. What makes "just a house" your "home". When I'm selling your home I need to make this process comfortable for you. Moving is stressful. Keeping things tidy all the time is hard. Opening your home up to strangers can be uncomfortable.
I understand these things. I strive to make this process smooth and as effortless as possible for you.
Taking a personal inertest in your needs is what I do, and I do it sincerely. I have found a very nice balance of personalized service and an aggressive sales record. Being a market expert is great... But being a market expert AND having a pleasant experience is EVEN BETTER!
The majority of my clients come to me by referrals. My friends, family and their referrals have graced me with a thriving business. I consider everyone's pursuit for a new home as a real challenge. I treat their investments as if it were my own.
My approach to my business is why I'm successful. People know that I'm determinded. Never fake. Striving to achieve each customer's personal needs is what I do best.
Where you can find me, selling homes that is...
With a hefty list of accomplishments nationally in the commercial market, I joined SKBK in early 2002. I immediately shot to the top of the residential market. In fact, I finished my first year as one of the top producers and I've stayed at the top of production since. How lucky am I??
My primary focus is on all things Birmingham/Bloomfield. However, I pay very close attention to the entire Woodward corridor. Including the following cities: Birmingham, Bloomfield Twp., Bloomfield Hills, Beverly Hills, Troy, Royal Oak, Berkley, Ferndale and Rochester. I grew up in western Oakland County so I'm very comfortable in the Lakes area and Novi as well.
There are numerous reasons why I love hanging my Real Estate license at SKBK. In April of 2006 we officially became a Sotheby's affiliate, which is just a perfect marriage. SKBK is Birmingham's oldest Real Estate firm with a long history of marketing homes successfully. The Sotheby's affiliation allows us to cast out a much larger net with all of the locations worldwide.
However, I really think that the biggest advantage our company has is that we are both "old school" and "new school". What I mean is that we are richly steeped in the history of this area and have mastered the art of networking. I am often times just blown away with the people that have walked through our doors. However in contrast, the owners of our company are committed to keeping us on the cutting edge of technology. The tools that we have in place are simply fantastic.
What you'd find on the SKBK website about the company...
The owners of SKBK, Sotheby's understand the importance of a strong presence in the market. Since 1932 we have been building strong ties to our local community and thus have become the area's leader in the listing and selling of unique, luxury and estate properties. But our success reaches far beyond our local markets. We have been consistently ranked by Crain's Magazine as one of the top single office firms servicing Southeast Michigan. Each year as we continue to grow, we increase our share of not only our local market, but those surrounding markets as well.
Regarding the Sotheby's Advantage; all of our agents benefit from the strength of the most internationally recognized and respected real estate brands, Sotheby's. Our affiliation allows us to provide our clients with unsurpassed marketing tools and resources in addition to unparalleled global exposure. At SKBK Sotheby's International Realty, our uncompromising commitment to excellence of service is matched only by our reach in the world of real estate.
Sometimes people talking about you is a good thing...
