Choosing a real estate agent is a very important first step in finding the right home. As your real estate agent, I have the following qualifications:
Licensed for 42 years as a full time and very active Realtor.
Started my career with smaller companies but have been with RE/MAX since 1986 and find the general atmosphere, my fellow associates and the company to be very professional and exceptionally independent which gives me the most latitude when dealing with my clients.
Committed to providing the best of Professional Real Estate Service to my clients and back this up by the statement on my web site that clearly states “First Class Service”. I am enthusiastic, creative, and will work hard to find you the right property.
Welcome! My main goal in dealing with you is to exceed your expectations… whatever they may be!
One of the largest financial decisions you'll ever make is the purchase or sale of your home... which makes choosing the right Realtor® essential. I provide a personal and individually customized approach to buyers and sellers who are looking to move to the greater Victoria area. As a long-time resident of the area, I will put my in-depth knowledge of the city to work for you. I understand the ever changing conditions of the local Victoria real estate market and will provide valuable insight to you whether you are buying, selling or both!
I understand that working with buyers or sellers is based on forming a trusting relationship. I work to do this initially with buyers by taking the time to find out what is important to you. I find this is time extremely well spent and it helps me ensure that as a buyer you make sound decisions that will stand you in good stead now and when it comes time to sell that home to the next buyer. As a skilled negotiator and very long, full time REALTOR®, it is my job not only to find the best possible home for you in your price range but also to make the home buying experience pleasant and as stress free as possible. I often work with out of town clients who are transferred to Victoria and have only a few days to make this very important decision. In many cases, the home has been found very quickly, leaving the balance of the house hunting trip for the pleasant task of getting to know the city and area better.
When working with sellers, there is much to be considered. One of my strengths is doing a walk through of your home with you to find out if there are areas that could be improved on to help you achieve a better sale price and quicker sale. Sometimes it doesn’t take much and you will find my many years of experience to be invaluable. When we live in a home for a few years, we become blind to things that could be off-putting to a buyer. Part of my job is to point out those things and help you present your home in the best possible light. I work with an excellent home stager should you decide you need a little more professional advise in this area. Another strength I provide is a custom three pronged approach to arriving at the best possible sale price. I have developed this over the years and find it to be very accurate. Please feel free to call and chat about marketing or any other question you may have! My direct cell # is 250-217-4600.
Most of my business comes from referrals from past clients. I trust this will be the case with you also as we work together to achieve your goals.
