I bought my first home when I was 42 years old, before I earned my real estate license.
As a single woman who has always been drawn to the rather low-paying helping professions, I never dreamed I would be able to afford a home in Seattle, but circumstances and events aligned and the dream came true.
Looking back on the experience, I realize how fortunate I was to find professionals I could trust, because I put myself squarely in their hands. I relied on my REALTOR®, Mike, to advise me on how much to offer, how much earnest money to put down, who to use for a lender and a home inspector, and what terms to accept in the Purchase and Sale Agreement. Although I consulted friends and family somewhat, if Mike hadn't been skilled and honest, I would have had a very different experience.
A few years later, when I decided to become a REALTOR® myself, I vowed to always provide my clients the same high level of skilled and trustworthy service I received. I am true to that promise every day.
My client base includes couples and individuals as both buyers and sellers, and I enjoy working with them all, but I do find that I relate especially well to single women, because they most closely mirror my own experience.
While the mechanics of buying a home are virtually the same for couples and singles, the dynamics can be very dissimilar. I understand that single adults often have different priorities for living space, less predictable life schedules and more freedom regarding financial risk. Although single adults enjoy the ease and autonomy of sole decision making, we also bear the entire weight of the outcomes. These differences directly impact the type, size and price of the homes we are likely to buy. I also understand that many single women, no matter how independent, capable and intelligent, appreciate a certain amount of added counsel. Sure we could do it entirely on our own if we had the time and inclination to get the necesary information, but few of us have that luxury. That's why we hire professionals.
My goal is to be the trustworthy accomplice you need to make your home buying/selling experience as positive as possible. I also want to be a lifelong resource for you, helping you increase the value and your enjoyment of your home.
I invite you to contact me so we can discuss your real estate goals and how I can help you achieve them.
