Experience Does Count!
My experience in real estate is extensive as a California licensed Realtor for over 36 years, since 1977 working with Home/Investment owners including years of REO Acquisition/Disposition, Short Sale Process/Negotiations. Years I have enjoyed with great passion. I believe I can contribute the necessary skills and talents that will ultimately result in the successful Marketing or Purchase of your Home/Investment property. I welcome challenge and am eager to produce results.
I am a Licensed California Agent…Homes/Investment Real Estate and REO/Short Sale Specialist working with a TEAM that handles many types of Homes/Investment Property Sales. With real working experience with many types of property sales in all different types of neighborhoods and working with Pre-foreclosure’s-HOA’S-Distressed Properties-Historic Districts-code violations helps make the sales process appear seamless without many of the problems others may have. Due to name recognition in our Real Estate Community, I was asked In 2008 to participated in a Better Homes & Gardens TV show for several episodes in “What is Your Home Worth“…Very exciting!
Working with a volume of business we have an assembled team to assist with Buyer/seller Representation, Client Care and Transaction Coordinating. Experience tells that having a team ensures that each Transaction will run smoothly and that every client is satisfied completely. I believe that being 'hands-on' is key and you will always be communicating with me.
