“. . .Just wanted to write a note to say thank you for everything – we know we would not have had the offer accepted on our dream home if we had ben represented by another agent!  You told us to trust you and you absolutely stuck to your word!  I still don’t know how you convinced the buyer to take a big risk on us versus the multiple cash offers she had received.  You were able to build a relationship with the seller and get her comfortable with the risk level of our offer and overcome some major (and very valid) obstacles from her perspective.  This very competitive market requires creative thinking and a personal connection and you brought both of those things to the table in order to secure our deal.  It’s clear now why you come highly recommended and are so productive!  

Thank you again!!!

How To Protect Your Roof

How To Protect Your Roof

It can be easy to forget about maintaining parts of your house that last a long time. But if you ignore your roof, it can result in damaging and expensive problems down the road. With a few simple steps, you can maintain your roof and prevent the need for costly repairs or replacement.

Clean the gutters.

Gutters clogged with leaves, sticks or other debris prevent water from draining off the roof properly. Accumulated water can easily seep under the roofing structure and cause significant damage.

Keep an eye on shingles and sealant.

Check regularly for damaged or missing shingles. While they are a normal part of roof wear, worn or damaged ones left alone can lead to much bigger problems later. New shingles are cheap and simple to replace. Likewise, look for signs of cracking or wear and tear anywhere sealant is used. Any damaged sealant should be completely removed and new sealant applied.

Keep overhanging branches trimmed.

Leaves from tree branches close to or overhanging your house can collect on the roof, where they may retain moisture and start to rot. This could damage shingles and possibly other elements of the roofing structure if left unattended.

Maintain your chimney.

Check your chimney for cracked or missing mortar and repair it as soon as possible. Mortar holds the chimney bricks in place, and falling bricks could damage the roof.


I hope this helpful tip is useful for you. If you need any help buying or selling real estate please call, email, or text anytime.

For FB x2

Many people are unsure how to estimate the value of their home. Here are a few age old truths about pricing no matter what kind of market we have: Seller or Buyer Markets.

Although, With the lack of inventory we are currently experiencing a seller can put their list price slightly over fair market value….depending on the location. All locations are different.

  1. Value is determined not by what you need or have invested in your property, but by what a buyer is willing to pay.
  2. The higher you price your property above fair market value, the fewer the number of available buyers.
  3. The greatest number of showings occur when your property first comes on the market; it quickly attracts the attention of the largest number of buyers looking for a property in that price range.
  4. The closer the listing price of your property is to fair market value, the higher the selling price you’ll likely receive. Too high a listing price attracts the wrong buyers and the right buyers won’t see your property.
  5. The length of time your property is on the market may affect the selling price you receive. In a buyer’s mind, too much time on the market indicates an overpriced property. To a buyer, it presents an opportunity to negotiate a price lower than you might have originally received.

Call, email, or text me when you are ready for information on Selling your property and buying another, if you are planning on it. I can help you with that too. I look forward to talking with you soon.
