My Client-First Philosophy
There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional – integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.
That said, in my experience as a real estate professional, I’ve also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.
This “client first” philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I’ve found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I’ve always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They’ve also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.
My expertise is in real estate sales, training, negotiations, contracts, and mortgage finance. I provide home buyer’s and seller’s information and services that build personal strategies and solutions to help them make informed decisions. I am a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) and have also received the prestigious GRI designation. I have decades of hands-on experience in the residential real estate industry and the Twin Cities home market.
