Over the years, I’ve worn a lot of different “hats”. All of this experience adds to my qualifications, and my ability to help you buy your dream home, or sell your home and get the best return on your investment.
My design and construction experience is expecially beneficial in helping :
§ The seller prepare and Stage your home so it is attractive to buyers and brings the greatest return on investment.
§ The buyer envision the potential that exists in a home that is “nice” but not “perfect”. Minor changes can make a major impact.
