Professional Real Estate Service Designed for You!
As a Southern California Native I can appreciate, all the diverse areas and lifestyles that living here has to offer. It is with great pleasure, to help individuals and families find a place that is right for Them. I enjoy working hard to help Buyers, Sellers and Investors meet their Real Estate goals.
I started in the Real Estate Business working for a Company that combined a Mortgage Company, with a Real Estate Company that serviced all of Southern California. It was great place to get started and I was fortunate enough to be able to learn so much about what different Communities and Counties had to offer.
Education is a Necessity in Real Estate. The Real Estate Market is constantly changing, and with the current Economic situation we are seeing more Short Sales and REO's. In order to best help my clients I earned my CDPE- Certification. Certified Distressed Property Expert and my SFR Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource Certification. This way I can help my clients with the most updated information and knowledge to help them in these challenging times.
To stay on Top of the Trends, New Marketing Techniques, as well as Local and World Wide Statistics I have obtained several Certifications and Designations in order to help my Clients.
I was the 2008 President of the Women's Council of REALTORS® Santa Clarita Valley Chapter. It was such a great Opportunity and honor to Meet and Network with Realtors here in Santa Clarita from different Brokerages as well as across the Country. The Education, Support and Networking Opportunitys have been Incrediable. http://.www.wcrsantaclarita.org/

QSC Quality Service CertifiedThe sale or purchase of your home is one of your most important financial and personal decisions that you will ever make. Finding and selecting the right real estate professional to assist you is important, too! While you expect your real estate agent to "get results", there's more to a real estate transaction than the sale or purchase... a lot more. Working with an agent who is reliable, accountable, responsive and one who pays attention to the details can make all the difference. A Quality Service Certified® Real Estate Professional: Commits to communicating and following a proven service process. Provides a Guarantee of service performance. Agrees to have his or her service evaluated, following each closing, through a customer satisfaction survey administered by Leading Research Corporation. Survey results and the record of past clients' satisfaction are available to prospective clients. This means that for the first time you have the ability to identify the capabilities and the service performance record of a real estate practitioner from a qualitative rather than just a quantitative perspective. After all, what is most important is not how many homes someone has sold, but rather how well service was provided and the level of satisfaction in each service experience. Offers greater accountability which naturally translates into better service. Selecting a Quality Service Certified® real estate professional will give you, the home seller or buyer, confidence in your choice of a service provider.
