Get a little something different from your REALTOR. My finance and appraisal background give my clients an edge in purchasing and selling a home.
Knowledge is Power
It is said "Home is Where the Heart Is." Having a home means different things to people - security, comfort, achievement, reward...the list goes on. But buying or selling a home is serious business. A balance of emotions and pragmatism is needed. A professional Realtor can work to protect and navigate you through this important investment by ensuring your purchase or sale is financially sound, legitimately legal and ethically prudent. Equally important, by allowing specialists to assist you, you will save time and energy for your move!
I am one of those specialists, having 18 years of Real Estate experience. I worked as a Residential Real Estate Appraiser for over 10 years, valuing RE for banks and credit unions to ensure that the prices their clients paid were fair market values. I have personally determined market values on over 1,500 existing homes, new construction, active 55+ properties, condominiums and multi-family properties in the greater Hartford market. I've added to that knowledge as a licensed RE agent for the past eight years, helping buyers and sellers achieve their RE goals using my extensive experience and resource referrals.
My Finance degree, from The University of Connecticut, made Real Estate a good fit for my skill set. In fact, I took Real Estate while at UCONN. That class, along with Marketing, Business Law and numerous Finance classes gave me a solid business base from which I've built on. My Appraisal and RE sales broadened my zoning, assessment, and building specification knowledge as well.
Whether you are a first time buyer, trading up for a growing family or right-sizing as an "empty nester", I look forward to assisting you with your Real Estate needs.
