Amazing people have come across my path both locally and those relocating here to the Westside of Cleveland; Rocky River, Bay Village, Westlake, Lakewood, Fairview, Avon, and Avon Lake! It's exciting to show off all that we have to offer here: Lake Erie, gorgeous parks & the valley, Blue Ribbon school systems, excellent city services, comprehensive community recreation, plus delicious new food & wine bars.
Negotiating is my favorite part of this job. There is a lot of "behind the scenes" negotiating that is accomplished before we even begin with a written offer! Know that my reputation proceeds me. I'm in close touch with all area markets, active, pending and sold. My professional relationships extend to all real estate companies. My job is to get you the best price and terms! Let my experience be your asset. It's my pleasure to represent you--every step of the way!
I am connected with the most competitive lenders and banks. We will walk you through the entire process! When you sell your home with me, expect the white glove treatment with "complimentary staging services" and an experienced digital photographer. My service will exceed your expectations, that I promise! I'm also a native, so am happy to grab a coffee or lunch and tell you how I can service your real estate dreams here!
