SALES BELIEF; REALTY AND ALL IT ENCOMPASSES:
Service, honesty, timely performance, meeting our goal; these are all words that come to mind when I think of how I sell Real Estate. I dont believe I sell homes, the homes sell themselves. What I do is show a home in the best light, when I represent a Seller. I help them perform the task of selling their home as quickly as possible to achieve their highest dollar possible.
When representing a Buyer; the same applies I'm just looking to meet their criteria and find their dream home! A home that is what their looking for, they can't wait to write a contract on. I can't push them to buy a home they don't like. So I'm not a closer type sales person; however I do know when we find something perfect it' time to act quickly to assure they get it!
HIRING OTHER REALTORS?
I handpick or screen who comes to work at Executive very carefully. Any new Agent must have our Philosophy. If not I'm not interested in the liability of having someone bring our reputation down. It's not worth the dollars.
(Only .Use this section to write about yourself - don't be shy - Why should a buyer or seller want to work with you? Do you have any certifications and qualifications? What sets you apart from other agents/loan officers?
As a Certified Residential Specialist, I represent homebuyers and sellers in achieving their goal of selling or buying a home. I've represented both since 1990. Starting very young in the business was a backup to my Entertaining Career in Las Vegas, and a way to earn much needed monies to live. I found it to be very interesting and I liked the serious contrast to light hearted entertainment.
Staging a home, was a talent of mine before they ever had the courses in how to stage a home; having a flair fo Art in every thing I do from painting, to singing and dancing (which I consider live Art) is how i view life. I perceive within my area a beauty of what something can look like, if it was just fixed up a bit, or cleaned up a bit, or painted a bit. I have a good idea of what items should go, and space will be created in a classy atmosphere to help show off a home! For others, they just live in the home. I traveled quite a bit in my life, as my father was in the Air Force. So I chose to make Military Relocations my specialty. I know how it feels to move a lot and went to 4 different elementary schools. I'll help you make a smooth move!
First Year Excellence Award; when I joined Champion Realty in 2005. Most Likely to List; 1990. Multi-Million Dollar Achievement Awards, yearly.
Computer Literate; I can set up Virtual Tours and Web Sites. I always market across mult-platforms with key words and Google Tracking of Data. I'm also good at photography; and choose to be picky with my photos and how my listing is presented.
I'm informed with Military Relocations and all that entails. As it's private, I don't disclose any jargon here, for security sake. I am a member of USAA and can fund rentals and purchases from afar.
