It is a joy to work with clients on finding their dream home!  As a buyer’s Realtor, it is my job to educate you on the market, search for your desired home, negotiate an offer and inspection terms for you, and guide you through the process to closing.

  • Educate yourself on the current market conditions
  • Drive through neighborhoods and narrow your preferred areas

  • Use your MIBOR custom portal to search for available homes
  • Visit open houses on the weekends
  • Explore new construction with your Realto
