When people think of Realtors, they may think of a friendly person who is nice to talk to. However, there is so much more involved in a real estate transaction that benefits you and finding a good Realtor is critical. Real estate agents are not all the same. Here are some aspects that make me uniquely qualified to be your next Realtor…
→ Denver Native
As a native of Denver I have decades of knowledge that span many parts of the Denver metro area. Use this to your advantage as you search for a new home to buy, or to understand your potential buyer profile as a seller.
→ Full Time Professional
As a full-time real estate broker I am focused on my clients all day, every day. And as a Realtor, I am held to a higher ethical standard than non-Realtor brokers, and have organizational infrastructure behind me to facilitate continuous learning and handle conflicts out of court (lower cost and more friendly) should they arise. In addition to being a successful Realtor for my clients, I have been successful as a real estate investor, and previously as a corporate administrator, digital consultant, and director of digital product development where I was at the center of building up a $4,000,000 a year (from $100,000 baseline) online unit for a TV/Radio media company.
As an investor that has bought, sold, fixed up, and rented out properties, I have had skin in the game, similar to you as a buyer or seller. As your advocate in a real estate transaction, I will share information that saves you money and time.
→ Detail Oriented
Real estate transactions affect both your financial interest and legal liability, so details matter. Given that every property and neighborhood are unique, you are going to need a Realtor that is able to research, analyze, document, and figure things out for your benefit. That is a constant in my background, from considering engineering leading into college, to being pre-med while in college, to graduating with a Chemistry degree and minor in economics/management, to jumping into internet computer programing after college, to working with contracts in my career, to researching and analyzing properties as a real estate investor and Realtor.
→ Military Friendly
If you are active duty military or a veteran, I would be honored to assist you with your real estate needs. As a Certified Military Residential Specialist, I am more in-tune with how I can support you than a typical Agent, and also empathetic to how our industry may not be serving your needs as well as we can. Whether simply looking out for your best interest in general, or working with you through your unique circumstances (transactions while deployed, atypical schedules, medical conditions) in a real estate transaction, I would like to serve you while at the same time learn more about how we as a real estate industry can serve you better. Also, VA loans have many benefits and I can refer a great VA lender.
Per Colorado law, real estate brokers have fiduciary responsibilities to their clients. This is one reason why it benefits buyer clients to sign an exclusive buyer agreement with a broker early on in the process — it doesn’t cost you anything and you get a higher level of responsibility from brokers. In addition to these current responsibilities, in a former role as a funding and compliance administrator of an employer 401(k) plan, I had even greater fiduciary responsibility for nearly 5 years due to my involvement with other people’s money and 401(k) plan investments — under IRS and Dept of Labor regulatory jurisdiction. While in this role, I favorably navigated annual CPA audits and an IRS audit targeting 7 plan years.
→ I Love Real Estate
It may sound funny to mention this, but not everyone loves their job so I thought I would clear the air on this one. I like what I do. I like helping people. I like discussing homes. And I would love to help you with your real estate needs. So let the fun begin…
