With years of experience as a homeowner and a Carlsbad Realtor (plus I live in Carlsbad) and servicing all areas in North San Diego County, I help both buyers and sellers achieve their real estate objectives. I have extensive knowledge of each of the communities located in and around Carlsbad (including Encinitas [Olivenhain, Leucadia], Cardiff, Solana Beach, Del Mar, La Jolla, Oceanside, San Marcos, Rancho Santa Fe). I know you want your home buying or selling experience to be a pleasant and successful one, and I will help you in any way I can to make sure that happens, whether that's in Carlsbad or one of the many other communities I service.
IF YOU ARE SELLING: For sellers, whether you have done this before or are a first time seller, I bet you want to sell your home in a timely fashion and get the highest possible price for your Carlsbad area home. But you probably also want help dealing with the hassles that come with selling a home, finding solutions to problems that arise, and getting important questions answered in a timely manner. I take the time to meet with you to find out what YOUR home selling situation is and to understand your specific needs so I can address them. And I ask a lot of questions to do this!
And by the way, If you are interested in receiving a free home valuation (there is no obligation) I encourage you to fill out my free home valuation form. The next step would be a more detailed market and equity analysis!
IF YOU ARE BUYING: For buyers looking for homes or other real estate opportunities here in Carlsbad or other surrounding communities, I know that YOUR housing wants and needs are critical, and we'll spend a lot of time talking about them. And I will work with you to find your ideal home based on your specific needs and your budget.
I will provide you with all of the necessary tools for finding the right property that fits your personal budget. From free access to search almost all San Diego County area homes, to the ability to fill out My Dream Home Finder Form, everything I can possibly provide will be available for you.
In addition, once we've narrowed down the list of what you are looking for and you have gotten pre-approved so you know your buying power, we can begin the home showing process so you can get a closer look at the homes that should be a good fit for YOUR needs. I help negotiate the best possible deal for my buyer clients with each and every real estate transaction - remember, as YOUR Buyer Agent my job is to protect YOUR interests, not those of the seller.
I have bought and sold 10 primary homes in 4 states so I understand well the process of buying and selling, and all that you have to go through to get to closing. I have also relocated 4 major times, most recently from BOSTON to CARLSBAD in 2005, and I understand what a relocation involves when moving with kids, pets, new jobs, cars, and more.
I have earned the Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) designation, considered by those in our business to be the Ph.D. of real estate - only about 3% of all REALTORS in the US have earned this designation. The CRS is earned from a series of 2-day courses on specialized topics including technology, sales strategies, and listing strategies, but is also based on significant sales production.
Nothing satisfies me more than seeing the smiles that come with a successful real estate transaction, and handing over the keys to a new buyer, or sharing the good news with my sellers that their house sold! Thanks again for considering me as your Carlsbad Area Realtor. #AtHomeInCarlsbad #CarlsbadRealtor
