After 35 years of Sales, Marketing, General Management & finally Corporate Officer and Co-Owner of several businesses, I have settled into the beautiful Roanoke Valley with my family. Not being one to be idle, I was convinced by my daughter, a Managing Broker for a prominant Real Estate Brokerage to get involved in Real Estate as an agent. I did just that a bit over a year ago and quickly realized I thoroughly enjoyed the challenges associated with working with clients who are looking for the best value in a home or maximizing their return on the sale of their existing home. I work with a broad base of cleintelle, but I found that of all groups, I enjoy working with seniors most of all! With that I gained my SRES (Seniors Real Estate Specialist) certification. Having lived in the Roanoke Valley for a short time and having gained my license just over a year ago is both positive and challenging. The challenge is having a small base of acquaintences with which to utilize as referrals. On the other hand, since I have a smaller base of clients to work with, I can give my clients superior service. I have always believed "FOLLOW UP" is the breakfast of champions. This is particularly true in Real Estate. When you "COMMIT" to do something for a client you must "DELIVER" on that commitment with "INTEGRITY", which results in gaining my client's "TRUST". I work hard to make the buying and selling experience hastle free and seemless by educating my clients on the entire buy/sell process.
Negotiating is far and away my strongest suit! Quickly connecting with my clients helps me gain their valued trust. Working with Seniors, who may need additional help with the myriad of forms, required actions and need or want to move back to their loved ones in their advancing years brings me joy and a sense of giving and accomplishing. This is the reason I pursued the SRES designation.
COMMIT & DELIVER---INTEGRITY & TRUST! This is not how I describe myself, but how I have been described by associates in my previous industry.
