The Right Real Estate Agent

People don't talk about it a lot. But finding the right real estate agent can be the difference between a happy, stress-free home buying or selling experience, and an unhappy, stressful experience.

First, you'll want an agent ready and able to make a full-time commitment to you. I can and will make that commitment.  I have been selling and leasing real estate FULL TIME for over 12 years.  Real Estate is my passion and I enjoy working with all my clients. When you choose me as your Realtor, you can be assured that you will be kept updated.  I will not have a voice mail that says I only check my messages at 1:00 and 4:00 and will return your call at 6:00.  My phone is on and I will answer your call or call you right back.  That is my guarantee!

Second, you'll want an agent with experience. Over the years, I have been helping hundreds of people with selling and renting their properties.  I have also negotiated many short sales!  So, if you are not in a positive equity situation with your home, lets talk about your options.  I know the local neighborhoods, schools and market conditions.  I have the expertise and track record of success you need.  If you are relocating and need to be close to work, chances are I know the areas where you can get the most house for the money, and still be close to your work. 

Third, you'll want an agent who embraces the convenience of technology without losing the personal touch. You'll love the resources available on my website and the e-mail alerts that I send, but these will never replace the time I spend with you, serving as your personal guide through this exciting process.

Let's get together and talk about your home buying or selling needs.  The best number to reach me is on my cell @  (240) 793-2485 or send me an e-mail @, we'll set-up a time that is easy and convenient for you to meet.
