Buying Your New Home

You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I am a native Washingtonian and have listed and sold 100’s of homes over the last 15 years. I ┬ácan work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter – not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home.

I want you to find the home that’s right for you. I will only find and offer you homes with your particular needs in mind. I will not waste your time with “slow movers” or “high profit” homes in our portfolio. I help my clients determine a fair offer to make on new homes. I aid with home inspection to find any possible future problems with your new home purchase.
