A real estate transaction should be a painless, and even a pleasant event. Buying or selling real estate is a cumulative process; one step leads to the next in an orderly fashion. A real estate professional is dedicated to making sure you understand the whole process while guiding you through each step as pleasantly as possible. Sometimes your Realtor may not have all the answers, but he or she should know where to find them.
I have lived in Austin since 2001, when I, like so many of you, transferred here with my job. At the time, I was working for a Costco Wholesale, and thought Austin was just a little bit of heaven. After fifteen years in the industry, working as a Manager with long hours and low pay I began studying for my Texas Real Estate License at night and I earned the license in October of 2006.
I do not receive a paycheck if I do not produce results for my clients. As an independent contractor, I think it is important for me to enjoy the people I am working with. That is one of the most pleasant aspects of this profession. As a REALTOR®, I will spend a great deal of time with my clients, and it is very important that we trust one another, and that we have respect and confidence in each other. I build a partnership with my clients, and it is a rewarding and mutually beneficial one.That doesn't mean that this is not a fun process. I like to have a good time, and I like to look at houses! Once you have endured the mortgage process, where you bear your soul to a loan officer, it is my privilege to take you to homes that meet your specified criteria. One of the most important things I can do for you is to listen to what you tell me. When that happens, we will both be saved from wasting time and energy in the home finding process.
I am a member of the Austin Board of REALTORS®, and a member of the Texas Association of REALTORS®, and the National Association of REALTORS®. I have earned the GRI and e-PRO designations, and continue my real estate education as the opportunities present themselves. Also I work for several banks as an REO agent to facilitate the sale of their foreclosures.
Most of my business comes from referrals. If you know of anyone looking to buy, sell or invest please let me know. I promise to provide them with only the highest level of customer service!
