I have been a local, real estate consultant in Lake County since 1992.  So I've lived through all the ups and downs in the housing market. Year to date in 2018 my listing sales prices have average 101.2%  above list price, with an average market time of 6 days.  It's very important to be there for my client to walk them through the ins and outs of the selling and buying process.  My work is not done when you have an offer. There are dates to keep track of, activities to coordinate, and lenders to follow up with, so the transction can proceed smoothly to closing. 


I made the change to @properties over 4 years ago because of the amazing marketing and support tools they provide. Over 90% of people now use the internet to begin their real estate search. If a buyer sees a home they like, they want information now on that home. @properties knows that no one has better knowledge that the listing agent of a home, so any floor calls are directly sent to my phone.


On the yard sign, I provide the property web address of the home and my phone number.  Both of these are located on the main sign. Riders are only used for temporary information such as advertising an open house.


I know it is very important to educate and keep my clients informed on the market as it can change daily. One of the newest tools I have to offer is an interactive on line CMA, which updates as changes occur.


Recent mortgage changes are having an impact, So it is imparative to have a strong support team, including an in-house title company, an amazing marketing division, and a mortgage lender partner, who's available 24-7.


This is truly an exciting time t o be in the real estate field, Baby Boomers are looking for new housing options, older seniors are considering moves for the first time in years, and the new younger generations are entering the housing market  their unique needs and wants.


I'm here to assist you with all your housing needs.
