Just as a home is more than walls and a roof, buying or selling a home is much more than a simple business transaction. Dreams and desires, attachment, compromise ... a host of complex and often conflicting emotions are part of the equation. That's why I love what I do - whether leading clients through a market analysis or tough negotiation, or helping them to navigate the emotional landscape.
Serving my clients' needs means being ready with answers and ideas, but also asking the kind of questions that help clients make clear-eyed decisions. Consistent, transparent communication and attention to detail help ensure that clients feel comfortable, empowered, and in control throughout the entire process of buying or selling a home.
I offer a versatile set of skills gained over a 35-year professional career. More than twenty years were spent in high-tech - negotiating multi-million dollar contracts and spearheading global marketing plans. Since becoming a Windermere broker in 2002, I've cultivated the kind of knowledge and relationships that have helped build a robust and respected real estate practice. Ninety percent of my business comes from repeat clients and referrals.
I believe communities thrive when children are well cared for. Through the years, it's been my privilege to volunteer with local organizations like Childhaven and WithinReach. And I'm proud that Windermere has raised more than $30 million to support families and neighborhoods through its foundation. I donate a portion of every real estate commission I receive to the Windermere Foundation.
