Don’t you deserve to work with a REALTOR® who not only appreciates your hopes and dreams, but employs expert knowledge and negotiating power to help you achieve them?
I’m a lifelong Tacoma resident who knows our neighborhoods front to back, and I’m passionate about helping you navigate today’s real estate market with clarity and confidence.
On your behalf, I offer you a unique, well-rounded professional background to help you come out ahead with one of the biggest decisions of your life.
As your trusted advisor, you can expect responsiveness and professionalism from me that inspires absolute confidence in the decisions you make. Wherever you are in your real estate journey, I am happy to be a resource and attend to any concerns or questions you may have.
I look forward to hearing what’s important to you – and serving as your advocate!
Q: What got you interested in real estate?
A good Realtor® is fundamentally a problem-solver. You have to employ negotiating skill, and knowledge of the rules and economic forces influencing all stakeholders. And you really need a good bedside manner to make a complicated process as user-friendly as possible to the real decision-maker: you.
As your real estate advisor, I see working with you as more than just a transaction. I see it as an investment in a long-term relationship of trust and support that extends far beyond you signing a piece of paper.
Real estate is a hard career, but it’s deeply rewarding if done well – and for the right reasons.
Q. Why Windermere Professional Partners?
Simple. Windermere reflects my values. For one, I have the full support of dedicated marketing, file management, and administrative staff to whom I can delegate the logistical tasks of my business…leaving me more time to meet with you and negotiate for your priorities.
Additionally, Windermere has a firm insistence on quality. All Windermere REALTORS® are held to the highest standards of ethical behavior, professional image, and customer satisfaction.
And finally, I’m frankly proud to work for a firm that puts its money where its mouth is when it comes to diversity, inclusion, and equity. It’s the abundance of opportunity I want for my community, and it’s the value set I expect from my company.
Q. “So, how’s the market?”
There is opportunity all around us, in virtually any kind of real estate market at any given time. Opportunity is like the law of conservation of energy in physics: it is neither created nor destroyed, but merely changes forms.
Real estate markets are not monolithic. Even in the same neighborhood during the same period of time, there are numerous market segments, pocket areas, and idiosyncrasies to appreciate, understand, and from which to gain an advantage. You need to work with someone who grasps those subtleties to enjoy the greatest opportunity.
