Your Marin Realtor, for seniors and first-time buyers

I am good at getting your offer accepted

How can I help you? Buying a home or selling a home can be among the most rewarding events in a lifetime. Buying or selling can also be among the most challenging events. Fortunately, I have created a 'master key' to the buying process, a strategy that helps you to move easily from initial desire to successful outcome. Meet with me to learn how my 'master key' can unlock the door to the ideal home for you.

Buyer viewpoint

Clients who most frequently hire me are first-time homebuyers, perhaps millennials or singles with children, and seniors who envision a new home that better fits their current lifestyle. Other buyers are investors who are not getting much of a return on savings and are considering real estate assets. In the end, though, many who enlist me are buyers who are frustrated because they have been on the losing end of ‘bidding wars’. They recognize that I am a real estate strategist, committed to helping them win those ‘bidding wars’.

Seller viewpoint

Sellers will benefit from my wisdom about home presentation. To help you, I have put together a team of home professionals who are available to assist with making your home appealing to buyers.

You want your home to look its very best so that it makes an excellent impression on those who view it. Not only do I have a list of things that must be done to make the home ready, I have an experienced eye and can spot the areas that can be improved. Want to sell your home fast? Talk with me about how to do just that.

Real estate is my passion.

I am a full-time realtor. Whether you are a buyer or seller, I do my homework; I reduce stress in the process. Over the years, I have developed a proven strategy for getting your bid accepted, including the way it is presented.

What sets me apart from other Real Estate Agents? I offer tools and techniques that will give you a major advantage, whether you are a buyer or a seller. They include:

  • TV advertising—a professional presentation of the attributes of your home on Channel 7 News, Sundays at 4
  • A mobile brochure—a buyer can use a mobile phone to learn about your home
  • Ads in Marin Magazine, the Marin IJ (Independent Journal), or both
  • Real estate virtual tour—a prospective buyer can view your home online
  • Property Brochure—valuable information about your property, plus contact details
  • Monthly mailer, with all the latest updates and available properties.

As a family man, I know what a family wants and needs and this can be a big help for first-time buyers.

The opportunity to live in Marin County, with its natural beauty and its culture, draws an insightful buyer. For example, the excellent schools and outdoor activities add to the local appeal. While I serve a range of buyers and sellers, I specialize in first-time homebuyers and middle-aged to senior homebuyers. Seniors may be downsizing or ‘rightsizing’. First-time buyers may be millennials or singles with children. For buyers, trust me to help you find the right home, whether it is a fixer, below market, or a luxury home. If you are a seller, my goal is to create a positive real estate experience in which you maximize your home value in the most positive way.

Buyer’s market? Seller’s market?

With low mortgage rates (near 4% compared with an average of 8.5 percent historically), today is an ideal time to buy. Should interest rates go up in the months to come, you will find yourself priced out even though you have the same job and credit rating. Meet with me to help you determine whether how this market can work for you. Let me help you buy the right home at the right price.
