I have over 18 years of real estate experience and have completed over 230 successful transactions. I know how to navigate the sometimes treacherous waters of real estate and guide you to a successful closing with good results and good cheer. I am a hardworking, professional and full-time.
Coupled with my extensive real estate experience, I have a broad background in such diverse areas as law, human resources, customer service, and French literature, making me uniquely qualified to help you understand your options, to make the right choice, and to have a fun time while doing it.
It is very important to me that transactions go smoothly and to your benefit. To that end I work hard to anticipate and avoid pitfalls and to keep you fully informed at each step. Not only have I handled a substantial number of transactions for myself, but as a manager with two of the big brokerages in town for over fours years I had a hand in resolving a wide range of issues for others as well. That is why it is such an advantage to have me carefully handling your deal.
Moreover, I don't consider "nice" to be just another four-letter word. Nice is the underlying principal for everything I do. I treat people with fairness, courtesy, and respect. Above all else I am honest and trustworthy.
Having spent almost my entire life in Wisconsin, 28 years in Madison proper, I keenly appreciate the many advantages of living in the greater Madison area. In an ocean of uncertainty Madison offers an island of stable employment, strong home values which have not been subject to the wild variation other areas have experienced, beautiful lakes and parks, top notch arts, entertainment and dining, and unparallelled schools.
Born and raised in Madison, I am enamored with its unique attributes and diverse surrounding communites. Every day I gain a greater appreciation for all this area has to offer. I'm not alone in thinking this is a great place to live, Money Magazine recently declared Middleton the #1 place to raise a family and the greater Madison area in general continues to accumulate accolades on a national level.
I understand that buying and selling a home can seem intimidating and make even the most intelligent person completely confused. In a world where many real estate agents and lenders seem to speak a foreign language, I strive to be your interpreter allowing you to make the most informed decision possible. After all, buying and selling a home is a very important and often complicated process. My experience in dealing with over 50 transactions, along with my knowledge of Madison and the local market allow me to make your real estate experience as painless as possible...and even a little fun too!
There is no doubt that I get a great satisfaction out of being able to put my energy into helping people identify the positive features in homes while avoiding costly pitfalls. Whether you're a first time homebuyer needing some extra education or a seasoned homeowner, know that through listening to you I hope to not only meet your real estate needs - I plan to exceed them!
Remember, there's no place like home!
