BUYING A HOME IN TODAY'S MARKET IS MORE DIFFICULT THAN EVER BEFORE,
ESPECIALLY FOR FIRST-TIME BUYERS.
WITH SO MANY CHOICES AND LITERALLY HUNDREDS OF WEBSITES WITH HOMES FOR SALE,
THE PROCESS CAN BE OVERWHELMING AND CONFUSING.
BUYER REPRESENTATION IS A FREE SERVICE--
WHY WOULDN’T YOU WANT YOUR OWN AGENT WORKING for you!
An Associate Broker with Coastal Properties Group, a locally owned boutique real estate firm, I'm passionate about serving the needs of my clients and pride myself on making sure that I serve as a guide and advocate throughout each step of the home buying or selling process.
I have a soft spot for first time buyers and have created a home buying workshop to shed light on what can be an overwhelming process and I also assist with credit repair. I take the time to make sure my buyer clients are partnered with the right lender who can help them save money and take advantage of any available home buyer credits or grants--there's free money out there if we look for it!
For those who are selling their home, I make sure that I take the time to learn the story of the house and the neighborhood: what are their favorite features, what do they love about the neighborhood, etc. I have a strong support team in my brokerage and always have professional photos taken (photos are the first impression--why are there so many terrible listing photos and why is this acceptable to sellers?). I also utilize targeted marketing strategies to find buyers--there's more to a listing than just putting a sign in front of a house!
Want to know a bit more?
Born and raised in Missouri, I traveled up to Rhode Island in 2001 from Fort Worth, Texas upon graduating from TCU (go Horned Frogs!). It certainly wasn't my intent to stay in Rhode Island but this state sure is special and it's home now! When I bought my first home on my own. I didn’t have a support network to help me through the home buying process-- I did my own research, tried to understand the current market, and wished that I had a trusted professional to help me through each step from start to finish. Looking back I over-payed because I didn't have my own Realtor and I also missed out on a few repairs that should have been completed by the seller. Who knew?!
Now, as a homeowner and investment property owner, I know how important it is to work with someone who is available and on your side, who you can count on, even after the final documents are signed and the keys are exchanged.
In addition to being a licensed real estate in Rhode Island and Massachusetts, I am a mother of two lovely humans (ages 15 & 13), I am one half of the musical duo Cowboy & Lady, we have two rescued Siberian Husky's who are adored, I love to cook & I am an avid reader when I can find the time to zone out.
As a Realtor, I am passionate about helping my clients and serving as a guide and advocate to meet their needs. Whether I’m helping first time buyers through the twists and turns of buying a first home, or staying abreast of current property values and marketing strategies in the communities I serve to help sellers quickly sell their property, I find great satisfaction in actively assisting my clients throughout the entire process of this momentous event. Let me be your guide!
