Interested in the growing residential and commercial markets for properties in mixed-use developments, which is a developing trend in the north Atlanta suburbs. As a resident-owner of a condominium in a mixed-use development and the president of the condominium association, I'm very excited about the life style and the opportunities but also well aware of the special considerations to be addressed by buyers, sellers and tenants in this relatively new style of property for this area.
As a home inspector and business owner since 2002, I've also developed a special appreciation and interest in assisting and educating first-time or inexperienced buyers. I've participated as a guest speaker in numerous home buyer seminars over the years. I have extensive experience in training from previous career positions in sales and in the Air Force, which enable me to assess to knowledge and background of individuals, listen carefully to their concerns and questions, then clearly communicate the information to enable them to better understand the subject matter, which in this case is a real estate transaction. I have a strong desire to continually learn and gather new information, techniques and skills which I use to better serve my clients. If I don't know the answer to their questions, then I readily admit that I do not have the answer and immediately begin assisting them to find the answers.
