I am a Kitsap Realtor with over 25 years of experience in the real estate industry; who has enjoyed aiding hundreds of clients carry out their real estate goals. Today I focus on both new and pre-owned homes, waterfront, investment properties, exchanges, and land transfers. My promise has always been, “to guide and never push my buyers and sellers into making their decisions”.
Move-up buyers must know the mechanics involved with selling their current house while buying a new home. Simultaneous closings are very trying for people who are inexperienced with the process. As an experienced Realtor, I prefer to sit down with clients to discuss current market conditions, recent changes in law, real estate values, and then to provide my buyers and sellers with a checklist outlining what they should be aware of before we draft a professional plan of action for their goals. There are so many details that I also give written guidelines detailing the Buying and selling processes and another devoted to the closing process for my client’s future reference.
Not all Real Estate agents are Realtors. The result is that they don’t practice by the standards we as Realtors abide by.
I have earned four of the top Realtor designations: CRS (Certified Residential Specialist), ABR (Accredited Buyer Representative), CNHS (Certified New Home Specialist) and EA-Broker (Earth Advantage Broker).
Today only 4 percent of Realtors in the United States have completed the education requirements and number of successful transactions to earn the coveted CRS designation.
I am a member of: The National Association of Realtors, Washington Association of Realtors, and Kitsap Association of Realtors. I have also served on the agent advisory board.
Windermere Real Estate’s community involvement stands out above most others. We support the Windermere Foundation to assist people having various needs in our local community. Part of all Windermere commissions is donated to the Foundation. It is good to know that the Windermere Foundation is not laden with excessive administrative cost and expenses like other charities. Our contributions actually get to people who need it in our local communities.
Windermere also sets aside one day a year for Community Service Day. We close our offices and work on different community projects. Each year we search for new projects such as revitalizing local parks, schools and even the fairgrounds.
We have our annual community shredding day for past and present customers. A large shredding truck comes to our office and instantly shreds outdated paper documents. We don't limit on how many boxes of documents people are able to shred. People can also dispose their old computers, monitors and TVs as well.
