Working with you as a buyer and helping you achieve the goal of home ownership with expert guidance along the way!  It is important to have acurate information in order to be able to make decisions that are right for you! I will be there with you through out the entire process to make your home purchase smooth and successful!

Selling a home?  I want to make sure you are in control of everything from allowing showings to having up to date information and feedback so that you can make the right decisions with pricing and ultimately in accepting and recognizing the right offer when that time comes.

Sales Associate

EXPERIENCED.........Having lived in the Capital District for most of my life has given me the resources to help my clients find and sell their homes with confidence and expertise.  Having an enormous pool of contacts along with utilizing all of the social networking aspects of today's technology can make your home selling process or purchase even easier! 

TRUSTED....A business owner with a staff of over 38 instructors and employees and retail establishment for over two decades not only gives me another entire data base of networking but also ensures you have picked a high energy, trustworthy and knowledgeable person who has years of experience and ability to ensure your transaction comes together with the least amount of stress possible. 

RESULTS....These powerful resources and the tools of being with one of the largest companies in real estate rewards my clients selling their homes with results often netting you higher net gain as well.  I am happy to meet with you to discuss your real estate needs and am always quick to respond to your call, text or email!  518 859-2876

QUICK TO RESPOND...That's right, you read correctly!!!  Call, text or email me and you will be in touch with me so I can answer your questions about properties, or what your house might sell for, estates, downsizing , needing help with painting or getting your home in tip top shape for sale, whatever it is I will be happy to work with you!!!

Buying a home!

What do you do when you decide to purchase a home?

Hire an agent that you feel can represent your needs able to negotiate your wants! 

Talk with a lender about your finances, do this before even looking at a home.  You need to know how much you can spend, and ultimately what you want to spend for a home.  (if you don't know of one I have many names and numbers of professionals that would be happy to help you and explain the process.)

Obtain a pre-qualification letter from your lender.  Have this ready so when you find "the one",  you can make an offer!  You will need this pre-qualification letter to accompany any offer you make. (I really need you to have this before we go "shopping"!!)

Then we find your home!!  Remember your agent can answer any questions and help you with any home on the market and will be able to guide you along the way. call, text or email me me with any questions-518 859-2876

Buying your home, what's next!!

You found your home!!!

This is when you need to hire your laywer, again your agent should be able to supply you with several to chose from if you need them to!

A structural will need to be done, this is when you hire a professional to come to your new home to inspect it for structual stability, insects, radon, all of the mechanics of your new home as well as insignificant items to know about to address or not.  You will receive a report of everything the inspector finds so that you can move forward with confidance. Your agent, (hopefully me!)  will also supply you with several structual professionals to interview if needed.

Once your attorney approves the contract, the structual has passed inspection, you will be working with your lender to close on your home .  You will have many professionals helping you along the way! My goal is to make sure your experience whether buying or selling or both is made to be seamless with the least amount of stress as possible.  Best of luck in your venture of home ownership!
