Full time real estate services in Fair Oaks CA, with friendly professionalism, 30+ years experience. I work hard to give my buyer or seller a low-stress transaction.
"Happy clients make me happy."
I have been working in the real estate field since 1978. I love to help people experience as trouble-free and enjoyable a transaction as possible. I am available by phone seven days a week and I do answer my phone!
I am experienced in short sales, and have earned the National Association of Realtors' SFR designation (Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource).
I am affiliated with Century 21 Noel David Realty, a wonderful company that has been in Fair Oaks since 1969. It's fun to work with such a great bunch of people, and I have a great relationship with a couple of local lenders who help make all transactions go smoothly.
For many years, I practiced real estate and construction law, representing buyers, sellers, escrow companies, developers, building contractors, and property owners in negotiating transactions, resolving disputes, litigating where necessary, and arbitrating in all sorts of disputes on real estate matters. I have also given numerous seminars on real estate issues, litigation prevention, mechanics liens, and others. While my law license is still active, I now devote full time to my duties as real estate broker and Realtor.
Through my legal experience, I learned through the mistakes of others how to structure a real estate transaction or resolve a dispute in such a way that saves my clients time, money and emotional distress. I continue to learn from my daily experiences as a real estate broker and Realtor, and by attending all regional and several local weekly meetings of the Sacramento Association of Realtors and participating in at least 2 caravans a week of new listings.
My motto reflects my goal: "Happy clients make me happy."
