My real estate career began in 2005 after spending over 20 years within the Fine Jewelry industry. The experience gained during that important career is used daily in my Kansas City real estate career. I relate my past career to my current career as "helping others with one of the most important purchases of their life". In jewelry, it might have been the gentleman coming in to purchase an engagement ring for his first real love. I was so lucky to participate in many of these important moments, offering guidance and even suggestions, if asked, on how to "pop the question". Then, becoming a part of their new family and experiencing "life moments" with them over the years. In real estate, it is the same thing. It may be that "first time home buyer" that is confused about the process, not sure where to begin and concerned about what home ownership requires.
"Translating my past experiences into taking care of my client''s needs for today."
Helping someone find their home in Kansas City can be much more streamlined by listening to their specific needs and wants. Listening and then translating that information into finding homes in the Kansas City area that specifically meet those requirements. This can effectively erase wasted time and energy spent looking at homes and areas that are of no interest to the client. Knowledge of communities, schools, amenities and location will be a great advantage to someone looking to move up or down based on a change in their real estate needs.
"Listening to the client is a critical element in building a lasting relationship that continues long after the closing and delivering the keys."
In the event that I am helping someone with selling their home, my marketing background in both my previous career and from marketing "New Homes" is a huge advantage to my client, especially in this market. Being involved in New Home sales in Lenexa, Olathe and Overland Park, selling Luxury homes, allows me to be completely aware of what "buyers" expect to see, what they are looking for, what the current decor'' trends are. This relates to preparing a client''s home for maximum exposure when placed on the market and is a clear advantage I have in this industry.
"Understanding that selling or purchasing a home can be a very stressful time for you. I feel that I can truly say I am here to help!The success I have been fortunate enough to experience is the result of helping others one home at a time!"
Most recently moved my license to Weichert, Realtors Graham Welch, LLC, which gives me more national exposure. I began my career with Graham Welch in 2005 and have come full circle, returning after they partnered with the Weichert franchise in Kansas City.
This recent change allows me the ability to market Summerwood, a new home community that is located in South Overland Park. This area has become known as "The Golden Mile" and is ideally situated along the 159th corridor which is the most active part of the county for new home construction. The award winning Blue Valley Schools are part of the reason for the tremendous growth of this area. Please visit for more information regarding this exceptional opportunity to live in Summerwood.
