Buying or selling a home is one of the biggest, most complicated decisions that an individual, couple or family will ever make. It’s a major investment of money, time, effort and emotions. Taking steps to safeguard that investment by using a Florida Realtor® – a trained professional who voluntarily agrees to act under a Code of Ethics – simply makes sense.
If you are buying a home or investment property, as your Realtor, my focus is on getting you the best possible home at the best possible price. I will work hard not only in finding you potential new homes to see, but also in keeping you informed of everything that takes place. As your realtor, I will negotiate the best prices and terms for you and answer all of your questions as they arise. I will be representing you, not the seller. This assures that my experience and expertise in the local market will be used in your best interests during the negotiation process.
Assure that you see all the properties in the area that meet your criteria. Not just those listed on the local MLS, but also many un-listed properties that we find through our local contacts and affiliations.
Guide you through the entire process, from finding homes to look at, to getting the best financing.
Make sure you don't pay too much for your new home. As a real estate expert in this area, I help people negotiate and make home purchase decisions every day. I can help you avoid costly mistakes.
Answer all of your questions about the local market area. Not just about homes for sale, but about schools, neighborhoods, the local economy and more
Let me help you find your dream home and assure your best interests are protected throughout the entire process. Feel free to call or e-mail me with any questions you may have at any time.
My advice to buyers is to be pre-qualified with a lender. This will give a seller the peace of mind that you are truly qualified to purchase their home and that you have taken the steps necessary to start the financing process; when making an offer, having the pre-qualification at that time will make your offer that much stronger.
Start the buying process on-line. I can set up e-mails to you with properties that fit your criteria. This will help you maximize the time spent previewing properties.
If you are selling your home of investment property, I will aggressively market your home not just locally, but worldwide. Through our Century 21 networking, contacts and affiliations, as well as my advanced technology tools, I can instantly put your home listing in all of the places qualified buyers are looking. Within minutes, I can alert every real estate agent in the Florida Keys area, as well as worldwide firms that specialize in helping people relocate to new areas.
I will come to your home and personally advise you of how to best prepare your home to get the highest price, in the shortest amount of time. The first impression is crucial.
I will protect your best interests throughout the entire process. You can leverage my years of experience as a top realtor teamed with the most recognized real estate company, Century 21, to answer all of your questions about every aspect of the selling and closing process. You will be informed and in control, every step of the way. It's my job to make sure your home selling experience is as comfortable and painless as possible!
My advice to sellers is to look at your home as a commodity. You want the first impression to be the best. You will need to de-clutter and take away your personalization, ie: family photos, children’s names stenciled on the wall.
If you have pets make sure any odors are taken care of and the pets are occupied for showings.
