Want to know more about this dedicated Realtor, please read on: QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

1. How long in RealEstate?

In residential sales since 2000, 3 years at Beach Cities Health District in property management and the leasing for the South Bay Hospital and their local properties, 15 years in Probate Law offices handling probate properties that were sold.

2. Special Training or qualifications?

As a certified paralegal, trained to prepare contracts with attention to detail is the most important qualification I can bring to you as your realtor. This qualification will assure you a straight-forward error free Listing Agreement, the final Purchase Contract on your home, and the fully executed Disclosures required in the sale of a property which will keep you out of harms way in this litigious state of California.

3. Strengths in negotiating?

As a paralegal I was trained in negotiation skills, and now with experience I have learned to “read” others to try to understand what they want in the end. There are more negotiations in a real estate deal other than just the Price of your home. I have learned that each transaction is different and requires a different approach by me as your representative. Presenting verifiable facts and figures is mandatory in negotiating with Buyers and Appraisers. Other Agents in our business respect me and will rely on me for honesty and integrity, giving way to my decisions. They know I am here to put a sale together and close escrow. My reputation is strong and unquestioned.

4. What Market Changes have you faced and how to handle them?

This is a very lengthy answer so please ask me for a verbal reply.

5. Do you have an Assistant?

I work without an Assistant because I want to handle all the questions, information, advertising, communications, etc. on your property myself to lower the risk of error in communications. I do however, use a Transactional Secretary who double checks all my paper work making sure everything is signed properly and at the close of escrow, the file is reviewed and signed off by our Broker-Manager, and filed in the Coldwell Banker archives. This is to protect my clients from any possible litigation.

6. How many clients worked with in the last 12 months? How many sales?

I encounter countless people on a daily basis, both in business and social situations. Real Estate is my full time career. Sales equal 12 to 17 properties a year, considered Very Successful.


· Legal training and experience as a Paralegal certified by the American Bar Association in 1982 prepared me to be more aware of liability and to advise my clients correctly. Thereby adverting any future legal problems in the course of signing the many forms and contracts involved in the process of buying and selling. I have my client’s best interest at heart.

· Experience with honest and open communication with my sellers, buyers and other agents. Immediate response to their needs and constant update of marketing results. Complete loyalty to my clients. This is not just a business to me, my clients become my friends. This is what sets me apart from all other Agents.

· My endless energy and attention to detail in the advertising of their properties for sale. It is my job to draw agents and buyers to your home.

· My recommendations to enhance their property.

· My Negotiation methods learned as a Paralegal that bring sellers and buyers together to complete a deal that satisfies everyone; not to become adversarial with other agents creating tension that undermines the contract.

· My Negotiation experience and skills of selling numerous properties that protect my client’s interest, such as countering terms in the contract and closely examining Inspection Reports. I am present at Inspections as your representative to protect your home and question or answer Inspector’s findings. This is often not felt to be a part of the Listing Realtor’s responsibility because of many factors, but I consider it a very important task to protect my client’s interest.

· My availability to help in any way that I can to make the experience easier for my clients, including meeting their inspectors, driving documents to them to save them time, trouble or messenger fees, or finding and meeting service providers needed for repairs. Whatever you need, I am ready to help.

· Reducing client’s expenses by researching lower priced Natural Hazard Disclosure Companies, Termite Companies, or repairmen for the Buyer’s “Inspection Request For Repairs”.

· Deciding WITH my client on a value for their home by preparing researched comparable sales and looking objectively through the eye’s of appraisers.
