Venice, FL 34285
I was born in Michigan where I lived until the age of 20 until I enlisted into the Army. The military provided me the opportunity to travel all over the country and different parts of the world where I also spent an extended period of time in combat in Iraq. I retired from the Army as a First Sergeant after over 20 years of service. I bring that same level of dedication, experience, hard work and a detailed mind set with me to work as a Realtor everyday and enjoy every minute of it.
After the military in 2011 I moved to Venice Florida after visiting here for over 10 years. I do not think there is another place better for a person who is interested in a second home, vacation property, investment property or just looking to move south away from the cold northern winters.
Education is key to assisting customers and ensuring that they are provided the most up to date information and tools to get the job done right the first time. I spend a lot of time and effort making sure that I have the most up to date education, certifications and designations to provide that for my customers each and every time.
An agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It is not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
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
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, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I 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.
