I thoroughly enjoy my job! Why? Because I get to assist Buyers and Sellers make some of the hardest decisions of their lives, and I work my very hardest to make this transition as easy as possible, as quick as possible, and for the best value.
I get to meet new people every day, and I get to help them, whether it is teaching them how to start the process of purchasing a home or who a good flooring expert is after they have lived in their home for a few years.
I strive to be an Agent that you remember, that you consider a guide, a friend, and one who you trust enough to refer to your friends, family, and co-workers. I have many testimonials of people who already have benefited from my A+ services. Why not you?
Whether buying or selling real estate of any kind, you need a creative, motivated, and effective agent to work for you. Call me today for a Professional Complimentary Market Analysis on your property or to learn more about what I have that sets me apart from the rest.

ATTENTION BUYERS!!! PRICES ARE DOWN! INTEREST RATES ARE DOWN! Don't be scared by the media! Everywhere you turn, every channel has information on the NATIONAL housing market, whether it is the radio, tv, newspaper, etc. Do you really know the meaning of this, and what is happening in VERMONT? Are you worried about buying a home? Let me tell you what I know. Interest rates are still great...They are still less than when I purchased my home in 2006 at 6.75%. It is a BUYER'S MARKET!! There are many homes to choose from, which benefits you! Did you know that the last time that PRICES were down and INTEREST RATES were down (at the same time) was World War II? Yes, there are sub-prime lenders that have or are going out of business. But, in a nut shell, you can still buy a home at a great interest rate, just be sure to use a lender that you trust. Questions? Call me and ask!
SELLERS...Are you wondering if your house will sell? As you know from driving around, there are many homes on the market, for many reasons. BUT, for every home, there is a buyer. There are still people coming to Vermont for its beauty & for jobs. There are buyers taking advantage of lower interest rates, lower prices, and tax credits, and buying a better home. Don't let this market stop you! You could sell in 1 day, 1 month, or 1 year. You will never know unless you try! Call me today for your Market Analysis!
Thinking of updating your home before you sell? What updates give you the most "bang for your buck?" Bathrooms and kitchens are HOT HOT HOT! Watch any of the remodeling shows on TV or read any articles in magazines. These are the rooms that will pay you back to remodel them. But why wait until you sell? Don't you want to enjoy that new Kitchen and Bathroom, too? Call me for my ideas on what you can do to upgrade your home!
Will you be moving out of state? Would you like to find a good REALTOR® who is ready to show you the type of home that you desire as soon as you get there. Let me know! I would be happy to access my network of REALTORS®, find a good agent for you, and set it up so all you have to do is show up at the office! It is called a Referral, and RE/MAX has one of the best REFERRAL networks around!
