Offering top REALTOR® services in a comfortable, relaxed and personal manner

With years of experience as a homeowner, and as a Carlsbad Realtor (I work and live in Carlsbad and have since relocating here from Boston in 2005) servicing all areas in North San Diego County, I help both buyers and sellers achieve their real estate goals in a timely manner and a minimum of hassle.

I have strong 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 work hard to make sure that happens, whether that's in Carlsbad or one of the 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 as quickly as possible and get the best price for your home in Carlsbad, or perhaps nearby. 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 quickly. I will take the time to meet with you to find out what YOUR home selling situation is, and to understand your specific needs, questions and concerns so I can address them. And I tend to ask a lot of questions to do this effectively!
And by the way, if you are interested in receiving a free home valuation (there is no obligation) please fill out my free home valuation form. The next step after that would be a more detailed market and equity analysis and seeing your property inside and out!
IF YOU ARE BUYING:  For buyers looking for primary homes or other real estate opportunities (e.g., vacation or rental properties) here in Carlsbad or other surrounding communities, I understand that YOUR housing needs and wants are specific to YOU, and important, and we'll spend a lot of time talking about what those are. And I will work with you to find your ideal home based on your specific needs, lifestyle and budget.
I will provide you with all of the necessary tools for finding the right property that fits your particular needs and personal budget. From free access to search almost all San Diego County area homes, and My Dream Home Finder Form, everything I can possibly provide will be available for you. Here are some ADDITIONAL HOME BUYER RESOURCES.
Once we've narrowed down the list of what you need and are looking for, and you have gotten pre-approved so you know your purchasing power, we can begin the home showing process and give you a closer look at the homes that should be a good fit for YOUR specific 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, financial and otherwise, and not those of the seller.
I have bought and sold 10 primary homes in 4 states so I understand the process of buying and selling very well, 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 the real estate profession 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 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 #CarlsbadHomesForSale
IF YOU ARE RELOCATING, I also specialize in helping people relocate, either inbound here to Southern California or leaving the area.
But with a vast network of Realtors I know personally around the country, I can also assist people you know (friends, family) in other parts of the country when they need to buy and/or sell. A simple call to me to let me know someone needs help and I will assist them to find the right Buyer Agent or Listing Agent.


A commitment to the needs of clients is paramount to the success of any good real estate professional.
