After retiring from teaching I went back to selling real estate. It gives me great satisfaction to guide people through such an important event in their lives. My mission is to be your TRUSTED ADVISOR. Buying and selling a home is one of the most complex and high financial stakes process that most people engage in. I pride myself in watching out for your welfare and have no qualms about walking away from a deal that is not in your best interest.
Being a retired high school science teacher as well as previous owner of several local businesses I am able to explain the process to clients in whatever detail you desire. Expect lots of communication from me and answers to your questions and requests FAST as I guide you through each step of your home buying or selling process. You can trust that I will do my BEST to help you reach your goal.
