As a lifelong resident of Hampton Roads, my professional career started with the Virginia State Police as a Trooper. I later developed a passion for real estate and realized that the purchase of a home is one of the most important decisions that an individual or family could ever make.
My passion for real estate led me to obtain a real estate license in which I have now been licensed for over 12 yrs. I pride myself in being very familiar with the area and will use that to your benefit when buying or selling a home.
As an award winning realtor with over 12 years of residential home sale experience, I believe that trust and communication is the key to any successful real estate transaction. I will work tirelessly for my clients to ensure that their sale or purchase of their home is as smooth as possible. With so many real estate professionals available to choose from I believe my experience and commitment to my clients sets me apart from all others.
As your real estate agent, my goal is to provide you with an elite negotiation advantage, reliable local market information, and around the clock responsiveness.
I work with all types of people, including first time home buyers, experienced buyers, sellers, people who are relocating, and investors. I specialize in the Hampton Roads real estate market.
My aim is not merely assist you with your current purchase or sale of a home, but rather to be your lifelong realtor.
As your Realtor I am dedicated to producing and directing your next move.
You don’t need to know everything about buying and selling real estate if you hire me as your real estate professional. For the most part, we all cost about the same. Why not hire a person with more education? We’re all looking for more precious time in our lives, and hiring pros gives us that time.
Over 12 years of real estate experience and continue to strive for more. Why not hire an agent with more experience?
3. Neighborhood Knowledge
I possess intimate knowledge and I know where to find the industry buzz about your neighborhood. I can identify comparable sales and hand these facts to you, in addition to pointing you in the direction where you can find more data on schools, crime or demographics.
4. Price Guidance
Contrary to what some people believe, agents do not select prices for sellers or buyers. However, I will help to guide all my clients to make the right choices for themselves.
5. Market Conditions Information
As your real estate agent I can provide information about the market conditions, which will govern your selling or buying process. Many factors determine how you will proceed. Data such as the average per square foot cost of similar homes, median and average sales prices, average days on market and ratios of list-to-sold prices, among other criteria, will have a huge bearing on what you ultimately decide to do.
6. Professional Networking
I network with other professionals, many of whom provide services that you will need to buy or sell a home. I do know which vendors have a reputation for efficiency, competency and competitive pricing. I can give you a list of references of professionals with whom I have worked with to help you make a wise selection.
7. Negotiation Skills & Confidentiality
As your real estate agent, my goal is to provide you with an elite negotiation reliable local market information, and around the clock responsiveness. In addition to my negotiating skills, I have expansive knowledge of the Hampton Roads real estate market. I crunch numbers every day looking at comparable sales in the various cities of Virginia which I service. So with me you will always know where you stand in the marketplace
8. Handling Volumes of Paperwork
Today’s purchase agreements run 10 pages or more. That does not include the federal- and state-mandated disclosures nor disclosures dictated by local custom. Most real estate files average thicknesses from one to three inches of paper. One tiny mistake or omission could land you in court or cost you thousands. I will handle every aspect of your real estate transaction.
9. Answer Questions After Closing
Even the smoothest transactions that close without complications can come back to haunt. For example, taxing authorities that collect property tax assessments, doc stamps or transfer tax can fall months behind and mix up invoices, but one call to your agent can straighten out the confusion. Many questions can pop up that were overlooked in the excitement of closing. Worthy and honest agents don’t leave you in the dust to fend for yourself. I stand by always ready to assist you.
10. Develop Relationships for Future Business
The basis for my success and continued career in real estate are referrals. This emphasis gives me strong incentives to make certain clients are happy and satisfied. I will be there for you when you need to hire me again.

Having a home inspection completed before selling your house is one of the best investments you can make.
There are two reasons why:
- Potential buyers will feel more confident when submitting their offer.
- It reduces the chances of the buyer asking you to repair something after their offer is accepted.
The cost for a home inspection can range anywhere from about $300 to $700 (depending on the size of your home). Listing you home knowing that you have covered all aspect will give you the piece of mind and the confidence as a seller and will lead to a successful closing.
Getting ready to put your house on the market can be emotional.
But removing your emotional attachment will give you the best shot at selling your home for top dollar.
The goal is to attract buyers and sell your home for the best price in the shortest amount of time.
A great photographer will take quality photos that will make your home look better than it really is.
This means your photos (and the home’s price) will be the first thing home buyers see.
And professional photos that can maximize your home’s appeal will get more of those buyers interested.
Most real estate agents will include professional photos in their marketing plan, so you can expect your agent to coordinate the photo shoot.
Showing your home to prospective buyers is a key step in the selling process.
Being flexible and making it easy for buyers to tour your home will boost your chances of getting the best offer. Your representative will coordinate and confirm with you personally all the showings.
When a buyer is ready to proceed with an offer, they’ll put it in writing on a contract, also known as a “purchase agreement.” The offer is submitted by the buyer’s agent to your representative who will carefully evaluate and present to you all your best options.
Once you as sellers have accepted the best offer, your representative will coordinate all inspections, appraisals, and closing.
There will probably be 2-5 days between the time you sign and the day that the sale of your home is official. Your agent will schedule the buyer’s final walkthrough and assure that all steps have been completed for buyer to close. Once the sale is officially close the sale will be recorded and funded.
