Hi and Welcome
As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here in the Indianapolis area and surrounding counties. My 25 year corporate background in Relocation/Transportation of House Hold Goods has enabled me to service my real estate clients with the utmost care and understanding. In 2002 when I began my Real Estate career I was able to transfer the quality of service provided for so many years into building a strong and thriving business.
You need someone you can trust with one of the largest financial decisions you will make. I will provide you with up-to-date market information that will help direct you in your decision making. I am eager to help you with your buying or selling needs. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will showcase your home online to over 800 websites, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close. My marketing is by far the best this industry has to offer.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
Whether you are buying, selling, or relocating I look forward to providing the quality service you deserve and expect.
"Above and Beyond"I pride myself in providing my clients full service through the entire relocation process. Recently, I was able to use my experience as a developer to help a transferee locate a suitable building sight and to identify, interview and select a custom builder. I accompanied my client through the design process helping to make sure that the floor plan that they selected was both functional and re-saleable. I met with the client to review pricing and the builder's contract. I introduced the client to lenders that specialize in new construction and helped them to secure financing. The net result was a perfect home at a great price and a very satisfied client!
Personal BackgroundDuring the past 12 years I have acted as a realtor, developer and appraiser. I have been fortunate to be recognized as one of Century 21's top ten agents in Indiana/Ohio in two of the years. I am the principal developer of my own custom home subdivision (Bainbridge). Before that I spent 25 years in HHG Transportation Senior Management at Allied Van Lines, Bekins and Wheaton World Wide Movers. Key responsibilities included: sales, marketing, contracts and agency networks. I am an expert in the HHG relocation, both domestic and international. I have negotiated contracts and managed relations with third party relo. companies and affinity groups (ie. Cendant, Sirva, Prudential, AARP, USAA, etc.). I have a unique understanding of the relocation process. I am well qualified to assist my clients.
