Experience, Knowledge, Integrity...these are the three guiding values of my accomplished 20-year career as a REALTOR®.I have a reputation for providing unparalleled service to my clients, for my extensive expertise in residential real estate, and most importantly for my honesty, professionalism, and integrity. By taking the time to forge personal relationships with my clients, listen to their needs, and understand their goals, I have earned my clients' continued business and referrals. There is nothing more rewarding than my clients' satisfaction and the friendships I have gained throughout my career.A Valley resident since 1980, my extensive knowledge of the community includes education, childcare, churches, synagogues, the Jewish community, the business community, golf course communities, active adult communities, senior living, cultural events, dining and entertainment, and much more.I have spent the past 20 years with Russ Lyon Realty Company, with sales in the top 10% each year and multiple prestigious Lyon's Elite and Lyon's Pride awards, and continue to remain a proud member of the Russ Lyon family with our new company, Russ Lyon Sotheby's International Realty.My accreditations as a Certified Residential Specialist of the Council of Residential Specialists and as a member of the Graduate REALTOR® Institute provide me with a vast range of knowledge about real estate, contracts, negotiations, technology and ethics.
