Service Above Self
If you have ANY real estate needs, (sales, purchases or rentals), I am at your service. This site is provided for your edification in various areas of interest and also gives you a way to request specific information to meet your personal real estate requirements.
I offer you the benefit of a broad experience base in real estate as well as personal lessons learned in my first life, having experienced many military moves.
Experience Base Pre Real Estate
In my first life I served on active duty in the U.S.Navy for 34 years. I was enlisted several years and was fortunate enough to leave as a Navy Captain.My family and I have lived on both coasts,in Hawaii and several foreign countries.Having experienced more than 20 permanent household moves, I do have a very keen appreciation for the excitement,fear and frustration associated with relocating.Because of my personal background I have a real desire to help others avoid my mistakes and bad experiences.I want to help you make sound, well informed decisions thereby significantly reducing you fears,keep you out of trouble and try to take you off the emotional roller coaster caused by relocation.
I have been a REALTOR with the same company,Long and Foster,since 1993.In accordance with my company's policy I regularly attend continuing education courses to stay abreast of changes in the industry.For company information visit www.longandfoster.com.
Primary Business Emphasis
The majority of my real estate experience has been in residential resale.The property value of my listings and/or sales have ranged between $45,000 and $413,000.I specialize in military relocation and meeting the special needs of Seniors.
I have had the opportunity to be on the sales staff of five new homes sites, marketing homes built by four different builders.This was a wonderful learning experience, giving me an appreciation for the pros and cons associated with home construction and the workmanship quality of various builders.I offer you the benefit of this experience.
Investor Tax Deferred Property Exchange Program
I also offer expertise in the 1031 Exchange program.This is ideal for an investor who has significant equity in one or more investment properties and would like to sell them ,buy replacement properties and defer the capital gain tax owed on the original properties.Excellent hedge.CONTACT ME!!!!
I believe that it is important to educate a client as necessary ,to ensure they are adequately prepared to make wise and well informed real estate decisions.That is a major responsiblity of this REALTOR.
My company provides extensive professional training for new licensees.We find that there is still a need for practical applications tutoring. I have been a professional mentor ofnew realtors in our office for the last 17 years. This experience has helped me stay current
with industry changes and has improved my profeciency as I advise them and serve
Special Services to SENIORS
I believe that SENIORS have unique Real Estate concerns.When one's home is much larger than needed and maintenance and upkeep is becoming a major problem, decisions are very difficult.SENIORS in this situation often have sizeable equity in their home and have been living their current life style for many years.CHANGE IS NOT EASY!As a trained and recognized SENIORS Real Estate Specialist (SRES),who really cares,I am able to knowledgeabl discuss the many options available and the pros and cons of each option.When you are ready I will help you make informed decisions.In areas of concern where I do not have expertise such as legal,financial management,tax and accounting ,I refer those issues to specialist with whom I am associated.SENIORS-I am at your service.
