Palm Springs RE/MAX Desert Properties 18 Years experience.

Experience, Trust and Knowledge Who to Choose! There are many people in the market place eager to help you with real estate. I believe it is VERY important that you choose carefully. The person you choose will be helping you make some pretty important financial decisions. That person needs to have a true knowledge of the entire process. Just obtaining your salespersons' license is not enough, in my opinion, to truly understand the entire process of investing in real estate. Because, even if you are just buying a primary residence, it is an investment. One that can bring you long term financial rewards. Being a multi-million dollar producer is a good thing, and I am one, but in my opinion to understand the investment side of real estate you have to have done it for yourself. I have. Why I think I am the right realtor for you:
18 years of experience in all aspects of real estate.
I am a real estate investor myself. I don't just sell it I own it! REO agent for Bank Of America. This means I am on the inside track of the foreclosure market in my area. CDPE trained - I have completed my training as a Certified Distressed Property Expert GRI certified - This means I have over 92 EXTRA classroom hours in all aspects of real estate e-PRO certified - This is a National Association of Realtors Course that teaches Realtors how to use the internet properly to market real estate. Fewer than 10% of the agents have this in a market where 86% of the clients are starting their searches online. Genuine Knowledge of the area.
BUYERS: I am not about High-Pressure sales. My goal is not to SELL you anything. I am here to help you do the research that will lead us to the right property for you. I will help you define your choices, explore the market and make a decision without ever pressuring you in any way.
SELLERS: You stand to lose the most from someone who is not up to the task of selling your home. Virtually everyone will tell you that they are going to "put your home on the internet" as part of listing it. That is pretty vague - let me show you how that is done properly. Promises are one thing having it in writing is another. I'll put my services in writing to you.
TEACHING: In 2008 I started training to teach my profession. I regularly teach the subject of real estate to new agents entering the business and experienced agents looking to home their skills.

Observant: While I think I have many skills - modesty prevents me from listing all of those!
Seriously - I rely on my skills of observation most. I can remember even the smallest details about properties because it is endlessly interesting to me. From property conditions to configurations of floorplans. Other agents in my area call me frequently because I am known for having great knowledge about developments and types of properties in my market.
