I have found this career fun and rewarding. Fun because I get to use my decorator knack to help people realize how beautifully I can stage their homes, with their own belongings. Rewarding because my combined background in Financial Planning and Mortgage Lending lets me help people who question the value of their upside down homes.
I qualify people for their current mortgage and home value and help them explore the options. Attorney's and CPAs are part of my practice.
When it comes to helping people find the right properties, I have found that my Real Estate experience coupled with having been a Lender for 14 years gives me unique insight. Helping a client find their best course of action in a Real Estate transaction is satisfying.
No longer the wild rocking days of real estate, buyers and sellers need a professional advocate more than ever.
Internet marketing. My team is trained to ask how people find my listed homes for sale.
Happily the answer is "Your home is everywhere"! That satisfies my goal of giving a seller's home maximum exposure.
A large percentage of the market is short sales. I negotiate my own deals and don't let multiple mortgages stop me.
I've got great listening skills. I have introduced 9 couples who wound up happily married. It is not that I am psychic; it is about paying attention to what people want.
