St. George Island Realty

About Me


Experience, Market Knowledge and Expertise
I received my Florida Real Estate license on January 15, 2010. I immediately began working at St. George Island Realty as a full time Realtor and continue to work there full time. I have become highly knowledgeable of the St. George, Apalachicola, and Eastpoint real estate markets. I am the Chair of the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) Advisory Committee of the Realtors Association of Franklin and Gulf Counties. I am the Association's designated mediator. I am a member of the National Association of Realtors and the Florida Association of Realtors. I am a certified Accredited Buyer's Representative and a certified Resort & Second Home Property Specialist.

I am a proven performer and strong producer. I am passionate about real estate and meeting and dealing with buyers and sellers. My clients and peers know me to be a detail oriented straight forward professional. I interact well with other Realtors. I have a proven track record of making good deals.

Skill Sets
My understanding of real estate contracts and valuing properties distinguish me from other Realtors. I am highly skilled and experienced in property valuations. Preparing comparative market analyses is my strong suit. I understand the meaning and intent of contract language. I have the demonstrated ability to help clients understand contract terms and resolve differences of opinion on interpretation.

Property Valuations
I manually prepare personalized cost-free Comparative Market Analyses (CMA) for sellers detailing the factors affecting property market value(s). I ensure my buyers know the true market value of their favorite property before making an offer. I believe my valuation knowledge allows me to provide my clients with a more accurate analysis of value than is available from Automated Valuation Models.

Representing Buyers and Sellers
I show all properties on St. George Island, Apalachicola, and Eastpoint no matter who has the listing.

I help my clients make informed decisions whether buying or selling a second home, an investment property, vacant land, or commercial property. I have the demonstrated ability to negotiate the price and terms my clients want. I solve problems. I listen to and follow my client's directions and preferences. I safeguard my client's interests. I do what it takes to make sure a deal closes.

Background
Prior to becoming a Realtor, I spent 32 years in public service as a negotiator, a mediator, and a senior management advisor.
