A REALTOR® is a member of the National Association of REALTORS® and subscribes to its strict Code of Ethics.
The Code establishes time-honored and baseline principles that come from the collective experiences of REALTORS® since the Code of Ethics was first established in 1913. Those principles can be loosely defined as:
Loyalty to clients;
Fiduciary (legal) duty to clients;
Cooperation with competitors;
Truthfulness in statements and advertising; and non-interference in exclusive relationships that other REALTORS® have with their clients.
To earn a designation, a REALTOR® a real estate agent has taken coursework and demonstrated specific skills, performance and knowledge in a particular area of the real estate industry. I have earned my GRI (Graduate Realtor Institute) and have taken all of the requirements for my CRS (Certified Residential Specialist) and ABR (Accredited Buyers Representative) along with several other courses of continuing education. My education continues on a regular basis in an effort to provide clients and customers with the best and most up to date knowledge of the industry!

As an agent who's an expert in the 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 the 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. I will listen to your wants, needs and desires for your new home and help you locate that perfect home!
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will GET THE WORD OUT! I will advertise your home in multiple forms, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, coordinate 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 provide guidance to 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.
