It is important to enjoy what you do and I am lucky to be able to wake up in the morning enjoying the career path I have chosen. Part of the thrill and excitement of being a realtor comes from helping my clients find the right home and negotiate throughout the process. The idea of helping is the hallmark of what I can provide to my clients, this helps to provide great fulfillment in my daily quest to find a dream home for my clients.
You might be wondering what set me apart from other realtors and how I can best help you when searching for your dream home. The first and most important attribute that I can provide is understanding you and learning what you are looking for in a home. You will need someone that takes your best interests to heart which becomes the critical starting point in your home search. In addition, you will want someone who understands the current market and how to negotiate in your best interest. What questions the agent can answer are a direct correlation to how helpful they will be in your search or sale of your home.
From a technology aspect, I can provide you with some unique services that allow you to stay knowledgeable about buying or selling your home. Using technology to determine what your home value is, send you the newest listings, and provide up to date housing information. The tools I have to show you houses are more elegant and easier to understand than a typical layout as well as user friendly. I take pride in being able to show you your best options and fight for the one you feel fits you best.
Here are a few fun facts about me and what I like to do when I am not busy assisting my clients with their real estate needs. I am an avid reader of almost anything, yet my true love resides in the realm of science fiction. Some of my favorite reads are Harry Potter or the Black Prism because they suit my fantasy world of imagination best. I enjoy playing a round of golf and have the goal of one day attaining a golf membership so I can play anytime I desire. When my down time comes around I spend most of it with my family, friends, and the love of my life. I live on the Westside of Grand Rapids and you can frequently find me walking with friends near the fish ladder or Riverside Park.
