My goal is to give you the best possible real estate experience
A home, whether it is a house or a condo, is likely to be the biggest investment you will ever make. I am here to help you understand all the steps in the process, so you can make the choices that are right for you.
Our relationship should be built upon trust and integrity. At the end of the day, and for years to come, I want you to be happy with the choices you’ve made.
My educational background provides a solid foundation for my work in real estate
I have a J.D. from the University of Oregon and a Master in Law Librarianship from the University of Washington. I earned my real estate managing broker’s license (then called simply a broker’s license) in 2001. To become a managing broker in Washington, a real estate broker (formerly called an agent) must have 3 years of full-time broker experience, take additional coursework and pass the state managing broker’s exam.
I am happy to provide you with names of various lenders, inspectors and contractors that have proven themselves trustworthy over the years
Many brokers no longer provide these types of referrals. I still believe in providing my clients with helpful referrals. If you’ve never owned a home, trying to find honest contractors at a fair price can be daunting. I think this is an important part of my job, even after you have moved into your new home.
I am certified by the Washington State Housing Finance Commission (WSHFC) to teach homebuyer seminars required by WSHFC for eligibility in certain down payment assistance programs and for the federal mortgage condominium tax credit. I will be happy to sit down with you and go through the basics of the homebuying process.
