I believe service is my best attribute. Close communication, verbal and electronic, attention to detail, always up-to-date market knowledge, a positive, upbeat outlook, and exceeding your expectations will make your real estate transaction a pleasant and smooth experience.
I’ve been a licensed Realtor® since 1998 and found my home with Fazendin Realtors in 2000. What a great company! I love it! My experience includes first-time home buyers and sellers, relocation transactions, investment property analysis and acquisition, and move-ups or downsizing. I recently partnered with a local law firm to assist sellers with foreclosure avoidance (short sales) and have been quite successful in helping families out of very stressful situations.
2022 was a good year for me and my clients. I worked with mostly buyers as the sellers’ market churned into a frenzy during the 1st and 2nd quarters of ’22. It was crazy! Buyers were offering far over list price, waiving inspections, and sometimes competing with ten or more other parties! With the rise in interest rates, the market cooled to a more normal pace in the 3rd and 4th quarters. I’m grateful for my clients' trust during this crazy time in history! After all that, the Minneapolis / St. Paul market saw an appreciation of 6.6% from 2021.
Looking forward to 2023, the number of homes for sale should rise slightly throughout the year. Many buyers have paused their searches as interest rates have doubled and inflation hampers costs. They’ll continue to watch from the sidelines and will most likely jump in if they see something they absolutely love. Interest rates should stabilize and possibly go down towards the very end of 2023.
A little about me...
I grew up in New York attending Somers High School and then went to Edison Community College. I’ve lived and worked in other states, but my family and I recognize the beauty and value in making our home here in Minneapolis.
In 2009, I was honored to be chosen by my peers to receive the Ann Brockhouse Award for excellence in support, knowledge and service at Fazendin Realtors. I was also elected by my colleagues in 2012 and 2022 to serve on Fazendin Realtors’ Management Advisory Council for a three-year term.
If you or anyone you know has a move in the future and you are interested in a fresh, energetic, and knowledgeable perspective on residential real estate, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I will make sure you are glad you did!
