Real Estate Agent

I have been helping buyers and sellers of San Diego real estate for the since 1998 but prior to that I worked in Washington State and New Mexico so my career has spanned most of my adult life.
The real estate environment has changed a great deal since 1998, and in fact, it is perpetually in various states of change. For one thing, new technology has provided wonderful opportunity for home buyers to go on the internet and make their own home search with great information at their fingertips. However, along with changes in technology we have become a more complicated and litigious society which means that it is now more important than ever to have an experienced agent representing your interests whether you are buying or selling.
Although someone may want you to believe otherwise, there is no such thing as a cookie cutter transaction anymore, if there ever was. They each have their own challenges and unique aspects. It is very important to me that my clients always believe and feel that I am working for their best interests. Even with all of the technology, real estate transference is still a very personal endeavor which requires personal and individual attentiveness, and attention to detail and the help of an experienced professional. And in order for me to effectively be this person for you, I make a continual effort to in learning myself in every area that may effect client’s interests. And frankly, different situations within transactions require different strategies in order to achieve the best outcome. For example, what if a homeowner is facing possible foreclosure, what are their options, timelines and strategies that can help them? Or if someone is a first time buyer, how will the lending environment affect them and what special financing programs may help them reach their goal? What if a homeowner wants to make a change of their primary residence – how do they negotiate a move when they need the money out of one home to purchase a new one?
