I work primarily and substantially in residential re-sale of homes and condos, although I have also worked with builders for clients looking to purchase new or build from scratch and have done substantial work in country residential (acreage) sales. I have experience in how to deal with the details of permits, water/well issues, road accesses, subdivision, and condo documents (bylaws, special levies, etc). I am experienced with the Calgary communities but have also had numerous transactions in Airdrie, Chestermere, Cochrane, Strathmore, Okotoks, High River and Crossfield. I work with first-time buyers, sellers, families, investors looking to rent or 'flip' properties (usually foreclosures) and those looking to retire and down-size.
In my personal life, I have bought and sold, built from scratch and have had tonnes of experience in renovating, so I know what it is like to be on the 'client' side of things as well.
My parents are both 35+ year realtors and I had the opportunity to be mentored under them when I started real estate 10 years ago after 15 years as a junior high/high school math and science teacher. I consider teaching an altruistic occupation and have endeavoured to bring that attitude with me when dealing with my clients. Complete and personal service is what I strive for (my husband calls me a 'boutique realtor'); strong communication skills, relationship development and attention to detail in all aspects of your experience. I have extensive organization, scheduling and research skills and am very diligent in all I undertake (professionally and personally). I have an arsenal of strong experts with regard to mortgage brokers, home inspectors, lawyers, movers and other industry experts.
Buying and selling a home can be an anxious and stressful time, which is why having a real estate partner who knows the ropes and what to expect can make such a difference. My goal is not just to sell your house and/or find you a new home or investment property, but to develop a long-term relationship in which you feel confident you can draw on for future support for yourself and your friends and family.
I look forward to the opportunity of providing you with a positive real estate experience and hope I have provided a picture of the realtor you are looking to work with. If so, let me know when you're ready and we can make a start!
