spokane: All Homes are Luxury Homes to somebody! - 01/14/10 12:14 PM
I deal in a wide variety of price ranges. Some say you should have a niche, and making happy clients is mine!
What would be a modest home for a first time home buyer, is indeed a luxury home for those who cannot buy one.
When you consider the plight of many in the human family, a "starter" home is more than the majority will ever own.
I don't decline clients or buyers regardless of how modest or fancy of a home they want to buy or sell.
Good service is the same, regardless of what the product is.  Of course, … (11 comments)

Developing trust, confidentiality, and being a true advocate are all bridge building skills. Being an advocate, a confidant, and advisor of people in their real estate dealings is a serious matter. I take pride in knowing I am engaging with people on such a meaningful venture!
Being knowlegable, … (7 comments)
