“I was born and raised in Hampton Roads but spent 16 yrs in the mid-west and west coast following career opportunities to coach and play soccer professionally. During that time I graduated from Indiana University and later earned a graduate degree from California State University, Fresno.”
Having lived and traveled all over the country I know the difference between a house and a home. Whether you are buying or selling, I know that your home is precious to you and I want to make your experience as forgettable as possible. Yes I said FORGETTABLE. I had a very special agent handle the purchase of my first home and I hardly remember any of the process! That’s because she took care of everything for me and made it a flawless, “forgettable” buying experience. You can be sure I remember the superior service though! I believe that YOU deserve to have a buying or selling experience like mine, remembering the great service and forgetting the rest. I LOVE to decorate because I grew up in a family of Interior Designers and learned early on how to stage a home to SELL. This is a buyers Market and sellers really need to do the work to make their house stand out from the competition. Staging is an absolute must and can often be done well with the things you already own. Hiring an agent that can really stage (not just de-clutter) is like getting a two-for-one deal!!
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 HomeYou 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 HomeWhen 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 TacticsOftentimes 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.
