Buying a Home or Selling a Home ~~~

A little bit about myself... 

I have been a Realtor since 1993 just over 25 yrs. Assisting Buyers & Sellers with their Dreams of Home Ownership.  I continue to be a Top Producing Agent in this Area and Surrounding Areas.  I Guide my Clients from the Staging & Marketing of Homes to Finding Their Dream Home.  And thru the Negotiations to the Closing, AND everything in between with this EVER CHANGING & Interesting Market. To the Right is a  little bit about myself. I hope that this will encourage you and make you feel comfortable in choosing me to list your existing home or help you to find your Dream Home. (Or Both!)
