I was born and grew up in London, England. I worked in finance for over fifteen years. I began my career with Salomon Brothers in London where I worked on the trading floor for five years. I then moved to New York City in 1986 and worked the next ten years as a capital markets broker for Tullett-Liberty Inc
I enjoyed a long and successful career brokering money market instruments, foreign exchange and interest rate derivatives. The last five years at Tullett and Tokyo, I managed the medium term interest rate swap desk with a team of fifteen brokers and support staff.
All the experience I gained on the trading floor and working with my team, contributes immensely to my ability to guide homeowners through the financial and emotional process of buying and selling their homes while at the same time utilizing my negotiating skills to benefit my clients. Since I began my career in real estate I wanted to provide my clients with any information and guidance necessary so that they can feel good about whatever real estate decision that they make and that transactions run smoothly. So many people feel that they were previously mislead or over promised by a realtor and therefore in the end the process is not enjoyable and people walk away from a transaction feeling let down.
I promise my clients total privacy and discretion for life.
I promise to do everything possible to protect your best interests and needs.
I promise to explain in detail every step of the real estate transaction right down to what my own expectations are of my clients in order for the process to go smoothly.
This includes (If selling) educating you in the art of "Setting the Stage" to sell your home. This will ultimately result in achieving the best price possible in the desired time frame.
I also believe that networking with other Realtors®, arranging tours to show the home, creating appealing brochures for prospective purchasers and extensive advertising on the internet and in Home Buying literature are all essential elements to market your home properly.
I am the author of a real estate book that was published in 2005 "Get the best deal when selling your home".
I have completed a three-part relocation course.
I have earned my e-Pro designation, which is a certification for Internet and technology professionals.
I have earned my ABR (Accredited Buyers Representative) designation and am therefore qualified to represent clients solely as a buyer's agent.
I have also earned my CRS (Certified Residential Specialist)designation which less than 5% of realtors in the country hold.
With over 30 million dollars of business in the last 2 years I am proving to be one of the most successful real estate agents in the North Scottsdale and Paradise Valley area. www.CarolSpencer.com
