I am a real estate consultant who believes strongly in professionalism and customer service and am successful only if I get you the results you want and need. I specialize in finding solutions to your real estate needs. I treat each client as if they are the ONLY client I have and will do everything I can to make sure the home buying experience is a happy one. I am a certified Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource (SFR) specialist and work with an experienced team of professionals to ensure your short sale goes smoothly and with as little stress as possible.
My business background and work in human resources has given me a keen understanding of the needs of my customers and also about the detail and precision needed to close the deal and keep everyone happy. I don't skimp or cut corners and stay in close communication with my clients from contract to closing.
I became certified as a Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES) because I was concerned about how many of our mature adults were being treated in their real estate transaction. As a baby boomer that has gone through several transitions myself, I understand the unique needs and preferences of the 50+ age group. I can provide them with the care and consideration they deserve, whether it is to age in place or move to an assisted facility.
My clients never have to wonder about the status of their listing or showings, as I stay in close contact with them using whatever technology they are most comfortable with. I take pride in the high caliber of my work and the high level of professionalism.
I am a life-long learner and will always stay abreast of the latest trends and technologies that make my job easier and delight my clients.
I'm a mother of two daughters and two wonderful grandsons who never cease to amaze me with their energy and curiosity. They certainly keep me on my toes.
I also love music (all kinds), videos, travel and crafts. I make many of my own silk arrangements and sew when I get the time. I love traveling and have visited places like London, England; Copenhagen, Sweden; Luxemburg, Venice, Italy; and Paris, France. I'd love to travel to the Mediterranean, the Caribbean and to Alaska to see the whales before they're gone and the icebergs melt.
I am also interested in social issues such as health care reform and animal rights. I believe we should help protect those that are helpless, defenseless or less fortunate than we are. Sharing the wealth doesn't mean just money, but time and effort. Volunteering at one of your favorite charities is an excellent way to give back.

|I appreciated the fact that you observed the market and recent sells which resulted in adjusting my sale price. This allowed me to receive far more proceeds than I could have imagined. Your presence at vital meetings and the closing meant so much to me. It is difficult to only mention one thing. I will definitely refer you to anyone who mentions selling or buying.

|We love our new home and you made our first home purchasing process wonderful Bernadine smile emoticon You were patient with us, worked with our schedule and weird situation, helped advocate for us to the mortgage broker, and were extremely responsive to emails. You were also extremely nice
|Bernadine was instrumental in navigating a very sensitive negotiation with multiple sellers on a home with significant repairs issues. She was very professional, tactful, but firm in her negotiations that results in us successfully securing the home in the location we desired. I would recommend her to any potential buyer or seller.

|I recently was interested in moving into a more spacious home. I contacted Ms. Hunter to get her advice regarding homes in a particular suburb. She provided me with valuable information the next day with all the details, photos, specs, and information I needed to determine what we may like. Ms. Hunter also met with me to discuss specific options for home searching/selection based on our goals and strategies for purchasing a home during an uncertain market. We have not decided on a move at this point, but are in total agreement that Ms. Hunter has the real estate skills and business background to assist us through the entire process when we decide. Because she is someone who is open, honest and sincere - I have no doubt that she is more interested in getting us into a home that fits our needs and personality rather than trying to make a quick sale. I will definitely be calling Ms. Hunter when we make our next move!
|Bernadine did an amazing job helping me find and buy my first house. She went beyond my expectations and I am extremely grateful to be living in my first home. Bernadine put alot of time and care into my house hunting. She was always available, reliable and accountable through the whole process. Bernadine was very thorough about every step made in purchasing my home. I was very happy with her professionalism and her high degree of effort.
|When I downsized from my two-story, 4 bedroom home and purchase something smaller. I contacted Bernadine and asked her to be my real estate agent. Well, I have to say, she wasted no time getting things going by advertising, setting up open houses and listing my home for sale. The results were tremendous. Within about 35 days my house was sold. Then, she also ran around with me during frigid cold and snowy weather this winter to help me find a new home. She hung in there with me every step of the way, even working evenings and weekends throughout the entire process of selling and buying. I have to say that Bernadine would be an exemplary representative for anyone interested in selling or purchasing a home. She is not only totally professional, but also very personable and sensitive to her client’s needs. I know she is the person I will call whenever I want to do this again.
|I recently inquired about a home that was for sale. Ms. Hunter was prompt in getting me the information, conducting extensive research about the home and the area. Ms Hunter would be a great agent for anyone, but especially for a first time home buyer. I know that for Ms. Hunter, it is more than just selling a house. She wants to meet your needs as well as help you make the right purchase for the right price. Ms Hunter is professional, honest, hard working and will look out for your best interest.

|"My husband and I decided we were ready to purchase our first home. After searching online for homes we saw one we wanted to look at and contacted Bernadine about it. After meeting with her we made her our realtor. We couldn't have asked for a better agent. She helped us look through many homes, being very honest about each one we looked at. Never trying to 'sell' us on this one or that one. She was genuinely interested in helping us find the home of OUR dreams. Once we did, she was available all through the closing process for questions and even after we moved in! We would recommend Bernadine to anyone in search of, or selling, a home. Bernadine is a top notch realtor and a great person."
