My family currently lives in Lino Lakes and our children attend school in the White Bear Lake district. I have also lived in both North Branch and Shoreview. I loved my time working in commercial real estate in downtown Minneapolis.
It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information and solid advice. I believe you will find my market research and knowledge to be superior to the average agent but more importantly, I hope you appreciate the individual planning and attention I give to every client.
Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, refer top industry professionals, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close - and beyond.
Consult on Home Selling Strategy
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. Together, we can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast. Most importantly, we will make a plan unique to your situation.
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home. When something hits the market matching your criteria, you can bet I will send it to you immediately!
Consult on Home Buying Process
Most people buy on emotion and that is great because it allows people to experience that thrill and excitement! However, we don't want this to end up in a decision you will regret down the road so let me help you with careful planning to ensure that you are ready to make a good decision when the right house comes along.
If you are both Buying and Selling, it's important that your agent makes a strategy that is specific to your situation. Working on both transactions at the same time can take delicate balance and requires you to form a close enough relationship with your agent that together you achieve your goals.
