In today's world it is easy to find someone who can fill in the blanks on a contract, place a home for sale with a sign in the yard, or drive people around just to open doors for them. Buyers are finding homes online before even contacting a realtor, and sellers are "self-serving" their homes when they have hired an agent. No more! Just call me. I have a proven track record, references, and am fully confident that I can help you.
I am currently a managing broker for the 4th largest producing real estate company in the country (soon to be 3rd), and have trained many agents to find the success and level of service needed in an ever changing industry. I am up to date on technology, but have not forgotten that answering the telephone and communicating to the client are the top reasons we as realtors are needed.
As you can see from my photo, I have a great responsibility to provide for my family. That goes beyond income. I want to provide an example to my family that ethics and hard work produce the best life. I guarantee you will be treated with respect, integrity, and be protected by having the knowledge that you are making a sound investment.
Whether you are looking for someone who is patient and able to show you homes, provide accurate market info, and make your search for your perfect home an enjoyable process, or if you are a seller looking for an agent who will market your home with great tools and effective practices, you can know that you are in good hands.
If you are ready for a competent agent who knows how to provide good service give me a call. I look forward to seeing you reach your real estate goals.

No matter what your real estate needs are I have the experience, and recources to help you. Because of the joy that I get out of serving my clients I have diligently become a student of real estate and have worked in literally every avenue of the business. While every transaction has its own uniqueness, it takes an agent who is willing to learn, and has the resources to find answers for every individual sale and purchase.
BUYERS, SELLERS, and COMMERCIAL
I love working with FHA buyers and sellers, conventional, investors, Seniors, VA, and RD (rural development loans). It is very important to work with a realtor who understands the lending process. This can help avoid pitfalls that cause closings to fall through.
FHA Loan - There are actually two FHA products I work with most often. One is the normal FHA that requires 3.5% down. The other is called a 203k Loan. Not many agents are familiar with this process. The 203k loan allows you to purchase a home to fix up, and adds on to the purchase the additional funds you need to make the home perfect! When selling FHA it is important to list with someone who understands the requirements from FHA. The worst thing someone can do is accept a contract on a home that isn't able to be approved for FHA financing just to watch the deal fall through prior to closing.
Conventional loans - Conventional is just that, conventional (normal). This most often means that the purchaser is able to put down a 20% downpayment. This loan product normally does not have requirements on property condition as long as it is insurable. This product benefits the buyer by avoiding funding fee charges at the closing, and mortgage insurance tacked on to your monthly payment. This benefits a seller, because most buyers with 20% down are able to go through a loan process that requires less stipulations from the buyer, providing a smoother closing less likely to have delays.
RD loan (Rural Development) - The rural development loan can be a tricky beast. It is a no money down loan, and the seller can pay all of your closing costs. This allows you to move into a home for $0! That's right! No money down loan! This loan only applies to certain areas and properties. So many people have picked out their home just to find out that it isn't eligible for this loan. Stick with me, and I'll make sure the properties you see are the ones you can purchase! Sellers that own a property that is eligible for this loan program are fortunate to be able to offer their home up for no-money down! This gives us an definite edge in marketing, and gets you a quicker sale for more money! The most common areas in our market for eligibility include Elkins, Goshen, Farmington, Prairie Grove, Tontitown, Elm Springs, Cave Springs, Lowell, Beaver Lake area, Pea Ridge, and Bella Vista. There are more areas than this, so give me a call to verify an address. I'd be happy to help. 479-841-9699 cell

Knowledge of the area, value of the area, and rent rate for the area is also extremely important. With knowledge of these things, and a good eye for needed repairs, you can rest assured we can find a profitable deal for you.
Seniors (Senior Citizens)- I take time to make sure that the process is throughly explained. Your questions are important. Your phone calls will be answered, and your inclined to as many face to face meetings as you need. I am patient and methodical and value your business.

Today's market forces agents to be adapt in Short Sale, and Repo properties. I work directly with multiple banks, and through resources with national banks to assist sellers with the Short Sale process.
