Local Expertise

You need someone who knows the city. I grew up in the region, and have lived in multiple areas of the City. I now live downtown in the Mill District, steps from the Mississippi River, and you'll see me out and about every day enjoying all that the city has to offer. I know my downtown neighborhoods like the back of my hand. If this is where you want to be, I'm the first call you should make. And if your perfect neighborhood is Kenwood, Lowry Hill, Linden Hills, or any of the wonderful neighborhoods just outside of downtown, well I've been in and around these areas for more years than I can remember. I love our city lakes and actively take advantage of them whenever I am able. You might just see me on a run around Lake of the Isles or Bde Maka Ska. If you do, say hi and let's talk!

How I Can Help You Buy a Home

Let's just start by saying I love what I do, this business is a lot of fun. I chose to get into real estate because I wanted to help others make their homeownership goals come true. Many years ago, a good friend of mine, who is a fantastic real estate professional, guided and helped me buy my first property. I had no idea what this process was even about. His kindness, support, and expertise made my experience something that I will never forget. And the sense of accomplishment, the feeling of having your own home that you purchased and did the work to make it happen, well, that is one of those great moment's in life you will remember forever. As your Buyer's Representative, I want you to have the same experience that I enjoyed so many years ago. Our process is simple, I will analyze the local market to help you find the perfect home and also will help you realize your dream. I will take you through the entire process, step by step, and explain everything along the way. From our first interaction to the closing table, I will be by your side as your trusted advisor and a consummate professional. We'll have a lot of fun working together, that I can promise.
