Real estate piqued my interest after my husband and I bought our first home. I didn’t know much about it, but was fascinated with every aspect of the transaction. It was something I continued to think about for 3 years before I finally decided I wanted to become a real estate agent. I can sit here and tell you I have strong negotiating skills, local market knowledge, and so forth – and of course, I do – but one thing I want to share with you, the most important tool I can provide you with in the sale of your home or purchase is my passion. I didn’t get into the industry to make money. I got into the industry because I fell in love with it. I fell in love with homes and the wonderful people I got to help. I fell in love with hearing people’s stories, really getting to know their needs, and focusing on ensuring they found a home that actually met those future goals. Real estate can be stressful, moving out of a home you’ve known for years can be hard, and it can be harder if you don’t have someone to partner with who doesn’t take the time to understand that. If you’re looking for someone that will just place your home in the MLS, and let it sell itself, I’m probably not the right agent for you. Marketing your home once it is on the market is important. You want your home to stand apart from the others and say, “Hey, check me out!” If you are making a purchase, I’m here to open as many doors need be for you to find “the one”. I can even help to guide you into communities that fit your lifestyle and needs. I also work with many out of town clients that view properties via FaceTime or video and don’t see the home until they move here. I am all about meeting your needs, whatever they may be. I bring 12 years as a business owner to the table and have over 25 years of experience in sales. My business goes beyond the professionalism I can bring to the table, my knowledge about our local market and communities, and past the number of sales I’ve made thus far. Instead, it prioritizes you. You need a real estate agent who understands your need and what a big transition this is for you. You don’t need a computer to find your dream house, you need a professional partner who has your best interest at heart from the moment you call to even after we close. I’m doing more than just selling houses in San Diego, I’m helping you bring your dream home to life. I’m from the south, so expect some southern hospitality! I have also surrounded myself with a team of professionals that exhibit these same values. The Navy moved my husband and I from Texas to Chula Vista 16 years ago and we have two children. In my spare time, I enjoy volunteering in the community, church, camping with my family and cheering on at our kids’ at their games. As an agent who's an expert in the San Diego area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. The real estate market is not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you: Find Your Next Home You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home. Don't Live in San Diego? I have many clients who can't make it out here to make their home purchase. In fact, they often times don't see it until after they have closed on the property. I know that may seem hard to imagine. But with today's technology, it makes it really easy. I show them the homes via FaceTime, video and still photos. I also make sure to attend all inspections on behalf of my buyers as well. You do not need to physically be here to shop for a home! Sell a Home When it's time to move, you need someone who will market your home, negotiate on your behalf at all times, screen your buyers, handle all necessary paperwork and get you closed! I can take care of everything you need, from start to finish. In addition to the obvious services a real estate agent provides, I also provide professional photography, staging, beautiful flyers, the latest in marketing technology and infographics so potential buyers can really appreciate the amenities of the community your home is in. Consult on Home Selling Tactics Often times buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. I can make suggestions for making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls. It can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
