As a real estate professional, it is one of my goals to get continuous training to make sure that I keep up with real estate and lending laws and have access to the best marketing tools for sellers. For my loyal buyers, I make sure that I have access to new housing developments, new trends and financing programs to achieve favorable results.
I am often flooded with questions about real estate values and upcoming trends and I am very in tune with the local real estate markets.
The real estate industry has gone through its various trends and at times, it might be confusing to consumers which direction real estate values will go, but I am confident that we will live through the "bad" times. Some will fare better than others. Savvy buyers are seeking my assistance and guidance because they know the value of a licensed real estate professional who knows the local markets. My advice and presence at real estate auctions has given buyers the confidence to bid and buy properties they would otherwise lose out on if I did not accompany them to the auctions. The auction process could be overwhelming to people who are not completely aware of real estate, lending laws and transactional procedures.
I've realized that my real estate license is more than duty, knowledge and experience. It is a professional standard that everyone deserves.
I am integral to making sure every transaction goes smoothly. Clients often speak or email me directly and yes, I personally respond to each inquiry. Every decision is made in the client's best interest, even if it means, I get paid less. Even though I have a family to take care of, I am not motivated by "the commission" at the end of the transaction. To me, getting paid is just a result of a job done well and done correctly. I really enjoy the real estate business and I am in my real estate business to stay, through the good and bad times, and longevity means having a good reputation and having competence to serve all my clients.
Here is a summary of types of transactions in which I have experience.
1. Single family homes (detached, fine homes, condos and townhomes);
2. Multiple units (2 houses on 1 lot; 3-4 units);
3. Business opportunities;
4. Pre-foreclosures; Real Estate Owned (REO);
6. Loans (first-time buyers, refinancing, investor, bad credit, bankruptcy, business, auction properties);
8. Lease Options / Lease Purchases; and
9. Short sales.
As a commitment to quality for my loyal clients, I actively manage and price bank-owned properties and inform clients of upcoming potential investment prospects. From experience, once a property is available to the open market, it receives multiple offers, even in "down real estate markets". Therefore, my clients know that by keeping in touch with me, they are getting first-hand knowledge of properties that have hidden equity and could turn a profit in their real estate portfolios. Real estate moves fast, especially with bank-owned properties that have hidden equity. The banks trust my knowledge and experience to price their assets and buyers know they are getting an exceptional deal! It's a win-win situation for everyone.
My family depends on me and so do the people I work with and the relationships I've established. Repeat and referral business from affiliates and loyal clients will take care of my family. And all of this happens because of a job well done!
