I am a ACCREDITED BUYERS REPRESENTATIVE and a GRADUATE OF REALTORS INSTITUTE. I have completed the courses of study and graduated these programs & earned the right to use these designations. These courses are specialized programs that allow a REALTOR to gain knowledge far beyond the requirements to pass the test to obtain a Real Estate Liscense. I specialize in Single Family Residential Properties in the Central Virginia Area. I love working with FIRST TIME HOME BUYERS - I place a very high value on educating the buyer. I offer my buyers a First Time Home Buyer's Guide and help them to understand that while they are buying a their first home they have to make sure the decision is also based on a good business decision - This is their investment for their future. I am very proud to say that I do not have any buyers in Foreclosure and this includes many First Time Home Buyers. Move-Up buyers are also one of my specialized areas and a challenging one. This Seller/Buyer is balancing the Sell of their current house with the pressure to Buy a new house and all the time dealing with the crunch of the morgage numbers and the timing for their Sale & Purchase. Throw in 2 work schedules, the kids, the animals, keeping a house clean and you have the makings for a Stress Meltdown!!! That's where a good REALTOR "earns their keep" so to speak - it is my job to play the devil's advocate and to anticipate the issues before they become issues. I LOVE MY JOB!!!!!!
