You loathe typical real estate agent bios. Don’t worry, I do too. They’re like cardboard — stiff, bland, and identical to every other bio out there. Instead of boasting ad nauseum about awards and accomplishments in which you have no interest, I’m taking the novel approach of actually giving you what you want — real answers to questions you’re probably wondering right now.
1. Will you return my calls and emails?
Yes. Without question. I realize this is one of the major frustrations the general public has with dealing with agents. I get dozens of calls and emails daily, and I work hard to reply as quickly as possible.
2. I’ve met many Realtors who are jerks. Are you?
Depends on who you ask. If you ask certain agents who have stood between my clients and their real estate goals, they’ll probably say “yes”. A handful of people think I leave golden footprints in the sand. Those are the two extremes, and the opinion of most people falls somewhere in the middle. Here’s what I can tell you: I’m honest and candid. I take pride in being approachable and friendly. And if you need a quick real estate brain, or a strong dose of honesty, you’re in the right place. Loyalty to family, clients, and friends is one of my core values. Want to really find out if I’m a jerk? Mess with one of those people.
3. Do you have experience doing exactly what I need?
Until you tell me what you need, there is no way of knowing.
These are “strong suits” of mine: relocations, first-time homebuyers, new construction, short sales. If your goal or situation isn’t represented on that list, don’t worry. Contact me anyway. If I can’t help, I can get you referred to an another agent who can.
4. What else do you do?
On a personal level, my family and I are self described geeks who love superheroes and Star Wars. I practice and teach taekwondo regularly, love to travel, and volunteer with Habitat for Humanity when I can. Finally, I am an ambassador for FemCity Des Moines, which is dedicated to helping women start and run their own businesses.
