I have lived in the Birmingham Area since moving my family from St. Louis, Mo. in 1979. I am a Realtor with Re/Max First Choice in Pelham, Al. I entered the Real Estate industry in 2002 and Re/Max in 2010. My first year as a Realtor I won the "Rookie of the Year" award for the Birmingham Association of Realtors.
I believe the key to my success is the trust that people place in me. It is critical to keep my clients goals and dreams as the top priority. I have an extensive background and expertise in new and pre-owned (resale) home sales. I strive to make the home selling or buying experience as stress free and most positive real estate experience possible. A vital part of today’s real estate industry is technology. I provide my sellers and buyers with state-of-the art web tools and marketing.
I continue to participate in education pertaining to all facets of the Real Estate Business. I have been certified as a Buyer Agent with my Accredited Buyer Representation (ABR) and Certified Residential Specialist with my CRS designation from the National Association of Realtors and new home specialist with my Certified New Home Specialist (CSP) designation from the National Association of Home Builders. I also have a Master in Residential Marketing (MIRM). There are a limited number of Realtors with the MIRM Designation in the Birmingham Area and State of Alabama. i have received the Club of Excellence Awards, Multi-Million Dollar Producer, Re/Max Executive Club and Re/Max 100% Club.
I constantly familiarize myself with the most up to date market trends and analysis, mortgage products and home inventories. Buying and Selling a home is the largest financial transactions a person will ever make. You need an expert to assist and guide you through these transactions. I specialize in listing and selling new construction and resales in the Jefferson and Shelby Counties including the cities Vestavia, Homewood, Hoover, McCalla, Helena, Alabaster, Calera, Pelham, Chelsea, Leeds, Moody and Trussville.
These are just a few of the reasons that have made me one of the most respected Realtors in the Birmingham Area. Call me for any questions you may have or assistance you may need concerning your Real Estate needs.
