I started my real estate career more than 30 years ago in San Francisco, right out of college (I went to UCLA, and earned a business degree). I began in commercial real estate and after a successful run, found that my real interest was in residential homes and creating great living spaces. I began buying, renovating, and building homes in Marin County, where I was born and raised.
What makes me a different as a real estate broker associate?
For home sellers, I know what it takes to ready a home for sale-I've personally renovated or built dozens of homes in the last 15 years. Most sellers are understandably reluctant to spend money on a home they are selling. I have the experience needed to help decide which cosmetic changes and improvements will result in a higher sales price, and which will not.
If work is needed to ready your home for sale, I will help you manage this process and keep costs low. My experience and relationships with industry professionals make the process easier, and much lower in cost, than if my clients were managing this process on their own.
For home buyers, my role assisting in the physical inspection of a property can save headaches (and big dollars!) later. It is important to me that my clients fully understand both the scope of work that a newly purchased home may require, and also the potential costs of this work-especially with homes that need more than cosmetic renovations. This approach ensures the best possible investment in a challenging market.
Although many of my clients are business people who are strong negotiators themselves, they rely on my skillful negotiations and attention to small but important contract details. The purchase or sale of a home is a process that calls for focused care and scrutiny, as well as meticulous planning and methodology.
I'm constantly analyzing the marketplace to gain the insight that my buyers and sellers need to achieve the best price and make smart decisions about the value of one of their greatest assets-their home.
My association with Decker Bullock Sotheby's International Realty ensures my clients worldwide exposure of properties, extensive on-line presence, access to auction house clientele, and powerful connections through the premier residential real estate company's local and global operations. Working closely with this prestigious firm allows me to continuously build and maintain sources of buyers and sellers at local, national and international levels.
