"I love my job!  Every day and every transaction is different. It's not an easy job.  It comes with lots of obstacles, but it also comes with immense gratification. I find so much joy in helping my clients achieve the gift of home ownership and finding that perfect "home sweet home." There is nothing quite like handing them the keys on closing day!  For my sellers, my goal is to help make their transition as smooth as possible by researching the location and comparables,  finding the homes USP (Unique Selling Propotion), pricing it correctly, staging, and marketing the property thouroughly.   I am someone who looks for out of the box, creative ideas and like to stand out as a REALTOR--not blend in.  Why blend in when we were born to stand out?!"
