I see this as value to my Real Estate Career, because as I am helping the public, it is very easy for me to remain FOCUSED on the needs of my clients making sure the needs of THEIR FAMILY is met through ME! I enjoy the process of "SHOPPING" for the perfect home to meet the total needs of each transaction. I enjoy the process of "SHOWING OFF" my clients homes in the sell process, and seeing the transaction to the CLOSING TABLE. I love to have EVERY Transaction be a WIN WIN for all parties involved. I have been successful at this, even in the Short Sale process. I have completed the Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) course to educate myself on the process, and to understand what the banks are looking for to get these transactions to completion. I have worked with awesome folks along the way!
CUSTOMER SERVICE, is my background. I have always enjoyed meeting new people and learning all about their life story. I COMPLETED my GRI certification, I have learned and confirmed a lot!! about Real Estate through these classes-- they offer OUTSTANDING teachers in each class.
To add to my education, I have completed the SRES, Senior Real Estate Specialist. I have a heart for the elderly and wanted to learn more ways that I can be of assistance to them.
CNE = Certified Negotiation Expert was a great class, I am glad I completed this one too. Always looking for ways to make sure I can work the BEST for my clients.
MRP= Military Relocation Professional. I lvoe working for our Military this designation was a must!
I did assist my husband Jim in his Plumbing Company, after 12 years we closed that down, however I have learned a lot about the business world in the last 12 years. I have also grown leaps in bounds in my understanding of the building process and of course the plumbing process in the building industry. Jim has been very willing to help out my clients when they are in need of a plumber "they can trust"! Of course we know others in the field if they would rather not have it to close so "home". I am blessed to know several sub-contractors that do a GREAT JOB in their field, so I am very CONFIDENT in referring out in several areas, knowing MY CLIENTS WILL BE WELL TAKEN CARE OF!!
Do I know all the answers in Real Estate? ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!! BUT, I have a great team of agents, lenders, inspectors, Title closer, ect. .... around me that I can always ask and learn from, in any situation!
I LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING WITH YOU. To help YOU complete YOUR JOURNEY in your Real Estate Transaction.
FAITHFULLY SERVING YOU.... TO WELCOME YOU HOME!!
I enjoy all areas of Real Estate. I have helped first time Home Buyers get into their "PERFECT" Home. I have successfully sold listings when my sellers are in need of moving from Colorado, to others whom are moving to another house. It is always FUN when you place the sign in the front yard, and the very next day it is UNDER-CONTRACT with the first Buyer!
My CDPE training has come in handy with the Short Sale listings. My first short sale listing ended up being my first Double ended deal! Others have sold, bringing much relief to the sellers whom thought "there was nothing they could do but walk away". Each case has been a WIN WIN situation for all parties involved. Of course it is a Learning process of PATIENTS throughout! Always nice to know you have helped the sellers/buyers out with "THEIR" Real Estate Needs.
