Representing Your Best Interests:
I am a bit old school – I answer my phone. Yes, I know how to text, but I believe personal communication is the key to serving my clients and potential clients. I return any missed calls as quickly as I am able.
Quality communication is key in any sales position. Effective communication skills are needed not only to build relationships with my clients but to interact and network with co-op agents. In an age of increasing technology, nothing about my service to you goes on ‘auto-pilot’.
From entry level price point homes, to multi million dollar estate properties, an understanding of our local markets comes from experience…18 years of successful real estate sales. Discovering trends, watching property sales and analyzing data keeps me informed so I can better guide the clients I represent.
Getting to a winning solution requires good investigative skills, understanding motivations of both parties…and listening. Also, knowing our real estate contracts inside and out affords me the navigation skills to obtain the best results for my clients.
Every client and transaction presents new and unique challenges requiring creative thinking and various resources. With 18 years of experience and many connections in the area, bringing your closing in for a smooth landing is my goal.
Appearance is everything! Life begins on the internet for my listings, so professional photography is paramount. I guide my sellers individually on how to prepare their homes for photography and how to best prepare the property for maximum return. Positioning to the correct audience requires not only presentation skills but a solid understanding of pricing strategies. Once presentation and pricing are established, my marketing tools maximize exposure on the internet, mobile ads, and direct mail. In addition, our exclusive worldwide luxury affiliates put your estate home in front of a wide audience of affluent purchasers. (Click here for our luxury affiliates)
With over $145 million sold, I am consistently one of the leading individual Realtors® in the North Atlanta area, with over 18 years Real Estate Sales experience serving Milton, Alpharetta, Canton, Roswell, Cumming, Johns Creek. Specializing in homes of all shapes and sizes, whether it be a quality neighborhood home, luxury acreage estate or horse farm, representing your best interest as a client is what I do best.
A 20 year resident of the Alpharetta/Milton area, I have been selling real estate since 2001. Prior to my real estate career, I enjoyed 18 years as a Sales Account Manager at Levi Strauss & Co. I am from northern California originally but have had the good fortune of living in many great states – Texas, Arkansas, Iowa, Illinois, and Georgia. When I’m not busy working on a client’s contract or listing, I love to spend my time outdoors working around my property and caring for my retired horses. Staying physically fit is high on my list as is enjoying our awesome communities of Alpharetta, Crabapple, Roswell with friends.
Equestrian Property Expertise
My connections in the equestrian world come from years of owning and competing horses. Caring for these beautiful animals requires specific property needs. Local zoning ordinances also play an important role, especially with the population growth our area is experiencing. From professional training facilities to hobby farms, I understand the selling features of these farms and market to a targeted audience.
