Brandie's Top Advice for Clients

Don't rely solely on the Internet to browse real estate. Many sites are inaccurate or out of date. Work with a great agent who can keep you apprised of new listings within your specifications and budget, even before they've hit the MLS.

If you're going to buy, after choosing the right agent, visit a lender to determine your purchasing power. Having a pre-approval letter in hand makes your offer exponentially more compelling to a seller.

Work with agents who are in real estate full time and with many years behind them so you are represented by a knowledgeable, skilled professional who understands every nuance to the deal, from marketing to negotiation to holding the sale together in the continued challenges of this market.    

Contact me when you want an agent who's fully invested in the success of your real estate goals

and who offers comprehensive professional guidance and personal support throughout the process.


Clients are saying:

"3rd deal with Brandie, and she is the absolute best at her job. We would never even consider working with anybody else. Kept us in the loop consistently. Always made us feel like we were her only client (when we knew damn well we weren't). Went well above & beyond with helping us as we lived out of state. Such a pleasure to work with!"
