Welcome to my Website

Welcome to the number one place to search for properties on the web! Whether you are searching for your new home or looking for one of the most innovative listing sites available to showcase your property - you need look no further.

My personal knowledge of the local Real Estate market is combined with the power of the Century 21 brand. Let me assist you in finding your dream home, in a neighborhood that is right for you, and in the price range you want.

Or if you are interested in selling a property, I also have the expertise to help you get the fastest sale possible and at the best price.

About Me And My Clients

I have worked as a real estate professional for Century 21 for the past 8 years, and prior to that held customer service management positions at local Janesville companies including Lab Safety (Grainger) and Swing N Slide.

The vast majority of my business comes from referrals and repeat clients. I do everything I can to make the home buying or selling experience as smooth and problem free as possible. But above all else, I do my best to make it enjoyable and fun. After all, buying a home is one of the most exciting things a person does in their life! 

The best thing about my job? There is something extraordinary and very special about being present when a buyer finds their dream home. It's that  AHA moment! I consider myself very fortunate to have been able to share in that experience with so many of my clients over the years.

Mortgage Pre-approval and Lender Information

 

5 Good Reasons To Get Pre-Approved Before Starting Your New Home Search

 

 

 

Shopping for a home before getting pre-approved is like walking into a grocery store without a wallet. You may have the desire to buy, but you lack the ability. So what is a mortgage pre-approval? In a nutshell it is written assurance from a lender that you’re able to borrow money to purchase a home up to a certain amount. It’s based on the income, employment and asset documentation you supply at the time of application, in conjunction with your credit history. 

 

 

1. It carries more weight than a “pre-qualification”.

 

pre-approval differs from a pre-qualification. With the former, the lender has actually checked your credit and verified your documentation to approve a specific loan amount (usually for a particular time period such as 30, 60 or 90 days). A pre-qualification can be useful as an estimate of how much you can afford to spend on your home, but it’s a less accurate indicator of your ability to purchase. A pre-approval always carries more weight.

 

2. You’ll know how much house you can afford.

 

Getting pre-approved before you begin house hunting allows you to know how much house you can realistically afford. Knowing this narrows down the options and makes the selection process more efficient. Not to mention, it protects you from the unpleasant surprise of realizing the home you fell in love with doesn’t fit your budget.

 

3. It adds clout to your offer.

 

Homes often attract more than one offer. If the sellers are weighing one offer against another, they may lean towards the one accompanied by a pre-approval letter. That’s because pre-approvals instill confidence that the buyer is financially capable of purchasing their home.

 

4. It can increase your negotiating power.

 

Getting pre-approved can also give you the upper-hand when negotiating the price. If the homeowner is eager to sell, they may be more willing to accept a lower offer from someone they’ve been assured is financially capable of purchasing their home.

 

5. It saves time.

 

 

Obtaining a mortgage can be a lengthy process. Getting pre-approved ahead of time shortens the time between contract to close — this way you’re ready to proceed with finalizing the mortgage once you’ve found the home you want to purchase.
