Buying or Selling Your Dream on the Ocean & the Bay from Sandbridge to East Beach!
Following the paycheck brought us to Virginia Beach. Falling in love with the area, has kept us here for over 16 years.
My love of real estate started after high school when my Grandmother left me $5,000. I used the money as a down payment on a four unit apartment building. As time went on, I bought other properties for investment purposes and several that I renovated and re-sold. Through these efforts, I learned a lot about real estate.
I also acted as the General Contractor for two personal residences in Virginia Beach which gave me a wide range of skills. “Hands on” project management, negotiations skills, construction knowledge, troubleshooting and problem solving are all needed to successfully build a house. Needless to say, these are qualities that I leverage as a Real Estate Agent to help sell my client’s home or find and negotiate their dream home.
To summarize the last 30 years, I have:
1. Purchased land for investment and development
2. Bought and sold multi-unit apartment buildings
3. Bought, managed and sold yearly and weekly rental properties
4. Bought, renovated and sold single family homes
5. Been involved in the design and building process of every home we have built or remodeled
6. Designed, drew the plans and acted as the General Contractor in building two personal residences in VA Beach
Everyone has asked me why I would choose to sell Real Estate in the worst market since the depression. My reply is, during this time, more than any time in history, people need representation and protection. I feel more than qualified to provide those key requirements and provide piece of mind to my clients.
In addition to being in the Circle of Excellence, the Leading Edge Society and other industry recognitions, I am a Certified Staging Professional (ASP Certification). I provide this valuable service to my clients free of charge to give them a leg up in staging and ultimately selling their home in the shortest amount of time, for the most money possible.
Please read the testimonials from former clients that can be found on this website. I am proud of the comments that my clients shared and I would appreciate the privilege of making you a satisfied customer.
Feel free to call me if I can help in any way.
