Timing is everything. I believe that in life, and in real estate. I have always had a great interest in real estate. When I was 23, I purchased my first home. It was a neglected yet stately turn-of-the-century Queen Anne Victorian on Metropolitan Hill in the Roslindale section of Boston. Being a private person, and well before the internet, I thought the price of my new acquisition would remain private. To my surprise, a few months later, my house was featured in Boston Magazine, centerfold placement, with its price tag clearly displayed for all to see. The article was called “Boston Booms”, and boom it did. I doubled my money when I sold this property 5 years later. I spent 28 years in Boston working in the investment management industry. After buying/ selling 3 houses, I decided to become a Realtor in 2013 to continue my interest in real estate - through helping others. I understand the role that agency plays when working with buyers and sellers and I always deal ethically and honestly with my clients.
Is it your time to buy or sell? Is it a seller’s or buyer’s market in your community? As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate in South County, RI. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for accurate 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 - CONTRACT TO CLOSE
When it's time to move, you need someone who will provide spot-on comparable property analysis, list and advertise your home through MLS and social media sources, show to pre-qualified prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract for best price and terms, oversee the inspections, arrange for the smoke/CO certificate, handle all necessary paperwork, and assure all documents needed to close are complete.
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. Call me for my checklist on making your home “show-ready”. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting some of the walls can be the difference between a home sitting on the market and one that's sold fast.
