As your real estate agent, I'll bring my years of experience successfully buying and selling homes in the local market. I know the neighborhoods, schools, market conditions, zoning regulations and what it takes to make the deal go through. It takes a full-time commitment, anything less and you'd be short changed. As a full-time agent, I'm able to "work the market" for you, keeping up-to-date with new listings and conditions as they impact the market.
