“Welcome and come on in.”

Being a long time resident and a full time Realtor of the Greater Sacramento area I can attest that this is one of the best places to live in California.  One of the great advantages of living here is that it is centrally located.  San Francisco is 1 1/2 hours to the west and beautiful South Lake Tahoe is an hour or so to the east along with world class ski resorts in the neighboring Sierras.  We have wineries in the foothills that rival those of the Napa and Sonoma Valleys.  There is a multitude of outdoor recreational activities available from playing championship golf courses to white water rafting.  The Sacramento area and the beautiful surrounding foothills offer a lifestyle for every dream, family or anyone planning on relocating.  You will find this to be one of the most rewarding locations in Northern California.  

As an experienced real estate professional, I specialize in resale and new homes, condominiums, land and investment properties.  I have built my business on honesty, integrity and hard work.  I place my commitment to my clients best interest above all else, and with this level of personalized service I will continue to ensure my success in this business.

 

Selling your home in today's market Some sellers choose to go the FSBO (For Sale by Owner) route in order to avoid paying a sales commission; but for many people, a good Realtor is the key to a successful sale. You can expect my services to help you:

  • Set the right price. I can give you information on recent comparable home sales in your area, helping you understand pricing in the local market.
  • Do the leg work. Creating advertisements, screening prospective buyers, and showing your home are all very time-consuming and labor-intensive.
  • Review the contract. A real-estate sales contract is a complex and legally binding document I can help you make sure it reflects your interests.
  • Find the right buyer more efficiently. As a CRS agent I know how to screen for buyers who are most likely to want your house and be able to make a good offer on it.

Buying your home in today's market

  • Don't let the asking price be your guide

Many sellers are clinging to price tags that are based on what homes were fetching at the peak rather than what's realistic today.

To gauge local conditions, you want to know how many houses are for sale and how long the average house has been sitting on the market today vs. a year ago. Once you focus on a particular house, get the same report on comparable dwellings that an agent would give a seller. It costs you nothing, and it can save you from placing more money on the table than you should.

  • Take your time
    In the heat of the boom, home shoppers committed to properties within minutes of touring them. Although sellers still have the upper hand in some markets, in most, time is on your side. You can make good use of it by getting to know your target market intimately. "Now you can do your homework,"
