About Me

As a John L. Scott broker, my mission is transactional excellence and client satisfaction. That means I work tirelessly to make your home buying or selling process as efficient, stress-free and lucrative as possible. I have been serving buyers and sellers in residential, luxury and investment properties in the greater King and South Puget Sound area for over 20 years! Having a deep knowledge of and experience in the local market enables me to give expert guidance and on-point advice to clients as you pursue your real estate goals. 

WHEN WORKING WITH SELLERS: I implement effective and resourceful marketing strategies that accentuate each property’s specific and unique features. When designing a marketing presentation that incorporates professional photography, refined staging and broad visibility in multiple print and online sites, I will skillfully position your home to stand out in the marketplace and appeal to the right buyer.

WHEN WORKING WITH BUYERS: I’m a committed listener who identifies the key elements of your home search to secure that one perfect property that will best meet your needs and lifestyle. Additionally, I have a heartfelt focus in serving the needs of military personnel, whose unique requirements for real estate transactions call for a qualified relocation specialist. 

My passion is developing long-term client relationships by providing exceptional buying & selling broker representation that results in a superior customer experience. I want all of my clients to know that:

  • I am committed to demonstrating the highest level of service and professionalism.
  • I love my work and I enjoy getting to know you.
  • I believe it is important for you to enjoy the process and know that I will walk through each step beside you.
  • We will work together from your search, to the signing of the final documents, to receiving the keys to the home of your heart.

Gardening is also among my passions, as is my love for the outdoors, spending time with family and friends - including watching movies with my granddaughter - and finally, travel and fishing adventures! After learning a little bit about my experience and what I enjoy in life, I hope that I have the opportunity to work alongside you to find the perfect home and learn a little bit about you too. Contact me anytime.

Representation

I take pride in offering high-caliber full-service residential real estate expertise. My clients are my top priority, and I focus on delivering the best possible results for them.

 

Expertise

The real estate market is hyperlocal, seasonal and temperamental—in other words, it can change on a dime. Technology has made information more accessible to everyone, but it can be difficult to keep up with recent events that affect home values. The benefits of working with a licensed real estate professional go far beyond what a mobile app, online video, or website can do.

I provide my clients with information on market seasonality and information relevant to what is happening in their specific neighborhood. This customized analysis includes recent comparable sales that factor into an offer and acceptance strategy.

 

Negotiations

Successful negotiations help move a conversation forward and transform the process into an agreement that’s a win for all parties. Negotiation is not only a skill, but a mindset. I keep my clients’ best interests top of mind as I negotiate on their behalf. 

 

Transactional Excellence

I am dedicated to transactional excellence for every listing and sale. What this means for you is that I oversee every detail of the real estate transaction. The transaction is far from over once an offer has been accepted. I monitor inspections, appraisals, title, escrow and loan processes. Communication and collaboration with all the partners and parties involved with the transaction ensures a smooth and timely closing. I am committed to my clients before, during and after a sale.
