***  I hope this letter finds you well, in good spirits and good health!  There is a shortage of homes currently for sale throughout the state.  It is an incredible time to sell a home.  I am a veteran of the 2004-2007 Real Estate market which saw spectacular appreciation during those years; it's uncanny how the market today mirrors that market of 15 years ago.

Market interest rates hit a low in February but have begun to edge higher.  VA rates are 3% and Conventional rates are at 3.375%; Good credit is a must (March 11, 2021).

Please give me a call to Discuss

           It is my belief to keep the process of buying or selling a home as simple as possible, providing my clients with as much useful information as possible so they can make informed decisions; they need to know where pitfalls may lie and how various provisions in a contract of sale may impact them, adversely or beneficially. There are hundreds of "bumps" in the road from contract to settlement and beyond settlement. My experience has enabled me to know what to look for; anticipate the hazard and know how to avoid it. I take great pleasure interacting with my clients . . . I listen. The majority of my business has been developed from past business. Over 80% is from referrals, from past customers and clients, from acquaintances and loved ones.
           I've helped the children of clients and next-door neighbors of friends in their Real Estate needs. I say what I mean and mean what I say. Through the years, I have truly enjoyed helping my customers attain their goal of home ownership. I take pleasure demonstrating how home ownership and real estate investments can increase their net worth; analyzing the use of financing as a tool to increase the return on investment. After all, the goal is to develop a plan that increases wealth in future years.
