I'm a real estate geek.
There isn't anything about this business I don't love. I have an uncanny ability to figure out what my buyers want even before they know themselves. When it comes to helping people buy or sell what is most likely their largest investment, there is never a place for being pushy, though I have been known to tell my clients to "bring their checkbooks" when I knew I had found their perfect home. I have actually read the Regional Sales Contract, the Virginia Jurisdictional Addendum (snore) and all the rest of the boring addendums. I can even tell you what they say, and more importantly, what they mean. OVER 20 years in this business, and I have never failed to sell a listing, I'm quite proud of that.
Specialties: Contract writing, contract negotiation, working with difficult people (this is so important in this business), making sure all the things I don't have control over are done as they should, having fun in stressful situations.
