As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's 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
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes 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. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
A bit about me.......
I have been serving Southern California buyers and sellers since 1999 after a long career in title insurance. (First as a Title Officer for 15 years, then a Division Manager for a Regional Title Insurance Company)
My selling experiences range from an 'Ocean View' Dana Point home, to a 'Desert view' home in Barstow and from Chula Vista, in San Diego, to Ridgecrest, in Kern County.
I like the adventure and challenges that real estate offers, and the great seance of satisfaction when my clients get their keys, or receives their final closing check!
My wife and I have been married since 1981 and we have two successful sons, one married, the other a workaholic in the defense industry. Plus I have two adorable granddaughters who have lived right next door to us, since they were born! We are indeed blessed.
I am a student of real estate for most of my life, as both my parents and my wife's mother were brokers in Orange County during the 60's and 70's. My wife's mom was even the top selling agent for Coldwell Banker in Newport Beach in the late 70's!
When I travel, we always have an eye out for homes in other states and communities and Realtors who are very good in their respective markets. Networking and building relationships with industry professionals is important to me, as they have the solutions to the challenges many of my prospects face, when the time has arrived to buy or sell real estate.
This experience and passion is not created by passing a state test, being certified in the various trade associations, but is built on decades of listening, learning, applying and revising processes, systems, and adding tools and resources, and guiding and mentoring agents, lenders, vendors and service providers to bring the best experience possible to those who trust me to take care of them, during the buying, selling or investing process.
Well, that's me. Now, lets talk about you, your dreams, your work, your family and how my team can bring you the home or the check that you are dreaming about!
