Many people think that the main reason you hire a real estate agent is for the MLS exposure. And, unfortunately, in some cases that may appear to be the primary service some real estate agents provide. However, a good agent provides much more than simply a "For Sale" sign and a listing on the MLS database.
In this challenging real estate market, you can't afford to take the big risk of navigating through the many obstacles, disclosures, and fine print of the purchase and sales contract without the help of an experienced professional Realtor. You've just got too much to juggle to be able to go it alone.
Moreover, when choosing a real estate professional to guide you through the sale of your home or the purchase of your next one, you'll want someone with the experience, skills, expertise and resolve to advise you correctly and get things right the first time around.
Over the past 22 years of my real estate career, I've seen just about everything that can go awry (in the good times and the bad) with a real estate transaction and helped my clients resolve these problems. Drawing on those years of experience, I can spot, and help prevent these issues before they arise and make sure your purchase or sale is smooth from start to finish. Well-versed in the nuances and understanding the legalese inherent in the 10+page purchase contract, I'm here to counsel and advise you on real estate matters - not to sell you something.
Over the years, I've also furthered my real estate skills, and expertise with hundreds of hours of valuable, practical education that keeps me on the cutting edge in servicing my clients' needs. I continually seek out instruction to sharpen my negotiating skills, understand developing technologies in the industry, learn about appraisal methods, and keep abreast of new laws and regulations that affect your purchase or sale. Having passed a rigorous course of study and examination along with years of experience to become a New Mexico Broker and having shown a proven sales record to qualify as a Certified Residential Specialist, you can feel comfortable knowing that you'll be working with a top real estate professional.
If you're selling a home, I'll employ the latest & greatest technology tools to market your house to the public, including my websites, blogs and syndication of the listing of your home to dozens of other websites. Plus the traditional marketing through advertisements, open houses, and the Multiple Listing Service will also assist in selling your home.
On the buying side, I'll listen to your needs, use my extensive Westside market knowledge and experience to scout out the right home, help you understand and enjoy the process, and refer you to reliable and professional mortgage experts to help you through the financing end.
I will help minimize your anxieties and make the journey fun.
