At Its Very Best

When Do You Know?


When do you know when you have landed on the right website and found the right REALTOR® to help you negotiate the Purchase of your new home or the Selling of your current home?

I know it’s exhausting and it is a tough decision to select the right professional to represent you.  In addition, you and I also know that visiting another 10 to 20 Realtor sites is not going to answer that question anytime soon either.

Allow me to help make the right decision easier for you... "Let not your heart be troubled".

It is a known fact that no two Real Estate transactions are the same.  With that in mind,  you should know that some Real Estate transactions are a little more challenging than others. Here is where my expertise and knowledge, that is required for the entire sales process, becomes more visible and you will be very appreciative of that.

I bring "to the table" years of experience, up-to-date Real Estate knowledge, utmost professionalism, negotiating skills,  along with trust,  honesty and that much needed - personal touch.  These just mentioned qualities of mine are the KEY components to bringing together 2-parties in order to facilitate an agreed upon "Point-of-Sale".   I always apply much effort to assure that the entire process will go as smooth as possible, have it be a pleasant experience and with the end result of course being a successful transaction.

If your need to Sell or Buy is because of a (1) corporate relocation, (2) you are a first time home buyer, (3) down sizing,  (4) looking for that investment "fixer upper" property,  or (5) if your family is growing and you need a larger home - you have come to the right place.

Just so you know, I am also experienced with Short Sales as a listing agent and a buyer agent.  I am also available to consult you about Pre-Foreclosure solutions and/or other options as well.

In addition, I always find it a pleasure working with Veterans and those currently in the MilitaryWith the VA Home Loan Program, my objective is to negotiate and get you into a home with a "zero" down payment. 

For the year 2017 in San Diego County:    97.9% (37,248 total) of all House, Condo, Twinhome and Townhome Sales were that of "traditional equity sales". These are homes that have equity and are considered a “Normal” sale.  Of course, this means that the remaining 2.1% (795) of homes sales are those known in the Real Estate Industry as a “Distressed Sale”. These distressed homes are a combination of SHORT SALES (homeowner owe’s more than home is valued) plus the homes that had been Foreclosed-on which are known as REO’s (Real Estate owned by the bank/lender).   For the year 2017 Short Sales sold were 1.3% (503 total) and REO's were 0.8% (292 total). 

As-you-know, not long ago there was a lot of "great deals" in buying a Short-Sale or a Foreclosed home. Those great deals/sales of "distressed homes" are disappearing fast as more and more banks/lenders are currently asking for the distressed home to sell at-or-close-to the market value of comparable "non-distressed" homes.
