I have been a resident of Naples for over 8 years, and born and raised in New Jersey.
After graduating from Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, and the London School of Economics, I spent time on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange before my career took me into Real Estate, and a relocation to Florida. As a Vice President of Operations for the nationally recognized homebuilder, I directed approximately $400 million in active residential real estate with over 2000 units.
Real estate transactions involve one of the biggest financial investments most people experience in their lifetime
How YOUR REALTOR can help you?
YOUR REALTOR can help you determine how much home you can afford and often suggest ways to accrue the down payment and explain alternative financing methods.
In addition to knowing the local money market, YOUR REALTOR can tell you what personal and financial data to bring with you when you apply for a loan.
YOUR REALTOR is already familiar with current real estate values, taxes, utility costs, municipal services and facilities, and may be aware of local zoning changes that could affect your decision to buy.
YOUR REALTOR can research your housing needs in advance through a Multiple Listing Service--even if you are relocating from another city.
YOUR REALTOR can show you only those homes best suited to your needs--size, style, features, location, and accessibility to schools, transportation, shopping and other personal preferences.
YOUR REALTOR often can suggest simple, imaginative changes that make a home more suitable for you and improve its utility and value.
YOUR REALTOR can assist you when purchasing a newly built home by protecting your interests and guide you along the right path. I can suggest builders with reputations for delivering a high-quality product, responding quickly to issues, and being financially sound.
YOUR REALTOR can assist you in the selection process by providing objective information about each property. Agents who are REALTORS have access to a variety of informational resources. REALTORS can provide local community information on utilities, zoning. schools, etc. There are two things you'll want to know. First, will the property provide the environment I want for a home or investment? Second, will the property have resale value when I am ready to sell?
When selling your home, YOUR REALTOR can give you up-to-date information on what is happening in the marketplace and the price, financing, terms and condition of competing properties. These are key factors in getting your property sold at the best price, quickly and with minimum hassle.
YOUR REALTOR markets your property to other real estate agents and the public.
YOUR REALTOR can guide you through the closing process and make sure everything flows together smoothly.
