GOAL: Securing The Best Value For You !

COMMITMENT: I am a FULL SERVICE Realtor!  In addition, I can also get you fully approved for a home loan (FICOR credit score dependant of course) with one of Washington State's TOP lenders (Homestreet Bank) to surface with an untarnished reputation from the toxic mortgage / lender disaster of 2007 / 2008. I have worked with the same Mortgage Broker (Jeff Carden, college graduate) for over 16 years, a veteran of 30+ years -- a person I TRUST without reservation (please note: by virtue of both federal and state law, I can not financially benefit from a referal to a mortgage broker). Let me assure you -- in today's market, THAT can make a huge difference in any real estate transaction. And, I have NEVER had a past client who subsequently faced either a short sale or a forclosure.  Not one.  

So, when you are ready to chase your next DREAM, call on me to assist with your home search (buyer) or with the sale of your present home (seller).  Your satisfaction is my commitment.
