Real Estate Consultant

Licensed Real Estate Agent




Why use me as your Real Estate Consultant?
Buying or selling a home can be exciting or excruciating.  Today’s volatile real estate market sometimes makes it difficult to determine if buying or selling is feasible.  Whether you are a first time homebuyer, seller or veteran, as your real estate consultant, I can point out features in a home you may not notice and can make recommendations that help you choose from several lenders, home inspectors, insurance companies and other vendors necessary in the purchase or sale of a home.


Looking for a home can be overwhelming, especially for a new home buyer or someone transferring into the area.  I am trained and equipped to provide you with the most up-to-date information on properties to suit your unique needs and circumstances.


I can help you save time, money and frustration – just look at the ways …

  • I get paid by the Real Estate Brokers I refer to, not by you and not by selling or buying properties.  This means that I do not have the typical conflict of interest that most Real Estate Sales Agents have.                                                                                                                                                 
  • I am familiar with various areas and neighborhoods and can make arrangements for you to see homes that will best meet your requirements.                                                                                                                                                       
  • I have access to computerized services which give detailed information about listed homes.  I can maximize your chances of finding the right home by searching on-line databases.                                                                                                                                                                                            
  • I can help you see through inflated prices.  Owners who try to sell “For Sale by Owner” tend to overprice their property.  A buyer or seller can benefit from my knowledge of current values.                                                                                                                                                                                             
  • I can help you stay within your budget.  Help you analyze your financial situation.  Provide you with information about such things as taxes and insurance.                                                                                                                      
  • I can help you with financing.  Give you sound advice and recommend several sources for a loan and other vendors who can best fit your financial needs.                                                                                                                     
  • I can help you through the many confusing details in contracting for the purchase or sale of your home and closing the transaction. Represent your interests when negotiating a contract and explain the various provisions in the contract and how they affect you.                                                                                                                                               
  • I can prepare you for the closing and can answer any questions you may have regarding your Good Faith Estimate and your HUD 1 Closing Statement.                                                                                                                              
  • I can help you see the overall picture.  Call your attention to any disadvantages you may not see and point out advantages you might overlook.

I am your advocate.  I’m on your side with advice and answers.
