Although I am an experienced, full time, full service real estate agent, I've been told that I am far from typical. I'm not beholden to the real estate industry. I don't "fall for the trappings". I don't drive a fancy car or have a fancy office. I keep my costs low. This allows me to focus on providing service. I choose to take on only a few clients at a time, rather than aggressively seeking out new clients. I provide personalized service, no pressure, and often pass along commission rebates to clients.
I always endeavor to make the home buying experience painless, pleasant, and fun. But I take very seriously my obligation to work in my client's best interests. In the recent past that has included sugesting to some clients that they keep on renting, or that they abstain from bidding wars, or wait for prices to drop further.
I work in the entire Seattle/Eastside area, but I'm most familiar with Ballard, Greenwood, Phinney, Fremont, Ravenna,Wedgwood, West Seattle, Madrona, Leschi, Seward Park/Columbia City,Lakeridge, Renton, Newcastle, Issaquah, and Bellevue.
Instead of trying to sell you a house, I'll do extensive research, freely share information and resources, and do whatever I can to help you feel more comfortable and informed about whatever decison you choose to make.
