About Me

  

“High Tech Is Something I Offer”

“High Touch Is Something I Live”

I have lived and worked in the Bay Area of California since 1975. After selling real estate in Illinois (approx. 5 years), I moved to CA, worked in sales and management for Coldwell Banker for 20+ years. Needing the freedom to make more individual choices for myself as an agent, I joined RE/MAX Associates, San Jose, in 1997. In 2002 I moved to Brentwood and joined RE/MAX Assoc. team (same broker) in Brentwood.

With 40+ years in the real estate business, I have consistently been one of the top agents.

· COLDWELL BANKER: Top Ten Area Sales Associates...Office Manager...Listing Leader Awards… Production Leader Awards...Gold Circle Club...President’s Elite Club

· RE/MAX: Presidents Club...100% Club

June of 2009, RE/MAX Assoc. elected not to renew their franchise with RE/MAX. Under new ownership, we joined the ALTERA Real Estate franchise, which was started by former RE/MAX brokers, and we became ALTERA Signature Properties.

May 1, 2013, we joined the COLDWELL BANKER franchise and became COLDWELL BANKER Guidance Realty, with offices in Antioch and Martinez, with 65+ ageants.

My 40+ years as a full time REALTOR® is a plus for my clients. I have been through many highs and lows in this business.

With so many lifestyle options available, it is important to have a REALTOR® that knows the area representing you, and helping you make the most important purchase of your life.

I take the buying process as seriously as my buyers do, therefore I offer nothing but the highest quality of service to my clients. I pride myself on the way I do business.

Selling Your Home: Where to Begin?

First Impressions

Remember what first attracted you to your house when you bought it? What excited you about it's most appealing features? Now that you're selling your home, you'll need to look at it as if you were buying it all over again.

A spruced up house makes a great first impression on potential buyers. An attractive property grabs their attention and makes them excited about finding a house that looks and feels well cared for. So if you prepare your home correctly, you'll save time selling it when it's on the market.

A good first impression makes an impact on a number of levels. It's not just the way your house looks to potential buyers, but how it feels and smells to them, how their friends and family will react, how they imagine it would be to live there.

With simple improvements throughout your house, you can grab the attention of potential buyers and help them see why your house is right for them.

The secret to pricing your home to sell - It's not what you think the home is worth that matters, it's what a reasonable buyer will think your home is worth that will ultimately determine if your home will sell.
