Find Where You Belong
Buying your house is a journey. I'll be there with you.
I have lived in Madison, Wisconsin for 15 years and have lived in a variety of neighborhoods all over the area. And I love them all! Each community has something special to offer. I'd love to help you find where you belong. I love the hunt! That's the fun part and it's my job to keep it enjoyable for you with the least amount of stress possible. It's important to see a variety of houses and neighborhoods when you're searching for the right home so that you can gain a frame of reference. I will keep you informed of every house available to you on the market the minute it is listed and sometimes even before that! I have built a strong network within the Madison area and will use every resource available to find you your perfect home.
You get only me: I don't work with a team, and that is by choice. I limit the number of sellers and buyers that I take on at one time so that I can give my clients the attention they deserve. I specifically chose not to be a "buyers agent" or "listing agent", I'm both! That keeps me up to speed on the both sides of the market so I can better serve my clients. I won't pawn you off onto another agent after our initial meeting and I don't have an assistant. When you call me, you talk to me, and I am personally with you through the entire journey.
I make friends with other Realtors: It might sound silly but not everyone does this. 10% of all realtors do about 90% of the sales in this area which means I work with many of the same Realtors and it's important for us all to play nice. Even when things go wrong I keep a respectful attitude, communication lines open, and respond quickly. When there are multiple offers on a property and you have an agent that is known to be knowledgable and easy to work with, it strengthens your offer.
Communication: I will be in touch with you in a variety of ways, from sending you daily listing alerts to showing appointments and weekly check-ins via your preferred method of communication. I will be reachable when you need me and respond quickly to any correspondence between you and the sellers or listing agents. I also ask that you keep in communication with me and respond in a reasonable amount of time. There are many time sensitive pieces once an offer is on the table. Please provide me with contact methods that you check regularly.
Respect: I am going to work hard for you. I will do my best to have a good attitude and be a positive force during this adventure. And I ask the same of you!
Honesty: I am not going to try to sell you on every home we see. I will give you the facts that matter most so that you are informed with every detail of the home. I will not only point out positives but I will point out negatives that you should consider as well.
Support: As your agent, it is my job to work for your best possible price and terms. I take that very seriously. I will run a market analysis on the house so that we're not just throwing a dart. I will negotiate terms in your best interest and present an offer that has the best chance of being accepted. I will explain contracts and contingencies to you, manage details and meet deadlines. There are a lot of moving parts in a home purchase transaction and I will be on top of them all.
