Welcome to my Website

Searching for your next home? Try our state-of-the-art map search – with it you can quickly search the entire market. Simply type the address, city, MLS ID, or just hit the search button to get started. The large format map allows you to click and drag, zoom in and view detailed information and photos for all properties currently listed on the MLS.

Selling your home? No other website in the market will showcase your listing with up to 50 high resolution photos! In addition to advertising your property on my own website, I syndicate your listing to other real estate websites across the web.

Whether you are selling your home, searching for your next home, or have any questions about the process – I look forward to helping you!

Action Plan To Find Your Home

It doesn't matter if you are a first-time home buyer or a repeat buyer, the process can be overwhelming.  When you hire me to assist you in finding your dream home, I will be with you every step of the way.  Below is my Action Plan to Find Your Home.  Every client is unique.  Once we meet, we will adjust the necessary steps based on your needs and wants.

  • Complete the ideal home survey sheet.
  • Complete the financial information questionnaire.
  • Indicate criteria for community selection or specify specific communities.
  • I will complete a mortgage qualification report and review it with you.
  • We will review the ideal home and community criteria and reconcile that with the mortgage qualification if necessary.
  • I will search the MLS and other sources available to me in order to prepare a list of candidate properties.
  • I will set up appointments to see the selected homes.

The remaining plan of action will depend upon our success with the initial list of candidate properties. We will either proceed to the settlement process if we find the right home during our initial search, or continue to monitor the market in the event that we were unable to find the right home from those currently available for sale.
