You loathe typical real estate agent bios. Don’t worry, I do too. They’re like cardboard — stiff, bland, and identical to every other bio out there. If you’re hungry for one, there is a “typical” bio on the next page (I doubt you’ll read it, I don’t think I have since I wrote it.) Instead of boasting ad nauseum about awards and accomplishments you’re not interested in, I’m taking the novel approach of actually giving you what you want — real answers to questions you’re probably wondering right now.
Will you return my calls and emails? Yes. Without question.
I realize this is one of the major frustrations the general public has with dealing with agents. I get dozens of calls and emails daily, and I work hard to reply as quickly as possible. I even answer Facebook messages as quickly as possible.
I’ve met many Realtors who are jerks. Are you?
Depends on who you ask. If you ask certain agents who have stood between my clients and their real estate goals, they’ll probably say “yes”. A handful of people think I leave golden footprints in the sand. Those are the two extremes, and most people’s opinion falls somewhere in the middle.
Here’s what I can tell you: I’m honest and candid. I take pride in being approachable and friendly. And if you need a quick real estate brain, or a strong dose of honesty, you’re in the right place. Loyalty to family, clients, and friends is are my core values. Want to really find out if I’m a jerk? Mess with one of those people.
Do You Have experience doing exactly what I need?
Until you tell me what you need, there is no way of knowing.
These are “strong suits” of mine:
● All that nasty paperwork.
● Corporate Relocations
● First-time homebuyers.
● Luxury homes
If your goal or situation isn’t represented on that list, don’t worry. Contact me anyway. If I can’t help, I can get you referred to another agent who can.
What kind of work are you really good at?
On a personal level, I’m pretty good at cooking (I make a mean lasagna!), and I’m not too shabby at gardening (I can make orchids rebloom). On a professional level, here are the skill-sets that I’ve developed over the years:
● Listening. Unfortunately, it’s a lost art these days.
● Explaining exactly what’s going on.
● Handing over keys!
