  • Earning a 5-star client satisfaction rating from an independent, 3rd party research firm
  • Proudly having been chosen as the People’s Choice Lansing’s Favorite Realtor (2008)
  • Serving as the President of Preservation Lansing… a cause of great importance to me…
  • Mayoral appointment to the Lansing Demolition Board
  • Self-proclaimed appreciation of our vibrant food and arts scene… which I’m happy to share!


AN EFFECTIVE,TECH-FORWARD COMMUNICATOR: I’m passionate about providing caring, compassionate, clear communication to help simplify the sometimes complex process of buying or selling real estate.   I listen.  I respond promptly in the manner and frequency preferred by my clients.  I stay abreast of tools and techniques to provide best -in-the-business service. Examples of my efforts include:

  • Providing twice monthly web-activity reports to review with my listing clients to help them better understand and react to online market activity
  • Creating a customized plan to assist my sellers with transitioning easily from one home to another
  • Offering staging advice and using compelling photography or video to help generate activity and strong offers on my listings
  • Paying for Search Engine Optimization on ALL of my listings to help insure my clients’ listings have preferential viewing opportunities  
  • Sharing my extensive market knowledge with buyers to empower their decisions to help insure they find the right home, in the right place, for a fair price


STRAIGHT-FORWARD, HONEST and HARD-WORKING:  I’m there when you need me.  I work hard.   I customize my approach to YOUR preferences and needs.

Some of my core skills and values include:

  • I’m responsive, upbeat and energetic.  I react quickly.  If you want to get into – or out of- a home – on a short time frame, I’ll do whatever I can to make it happen
  • A strong attention to detail… I’m committed to helping insure the process flows smoothly, documents are in order, surprises are minimized
  • Setting and sharing realistic expectations.  Backed up by my insight and expertise, I’ll tell you what you need to hear… share supporting data, offer strategic advice, suggest tactical actions, justify my recommendations… and help YOU make the best decisions possible
  • I’m results oriented.  Bottom-line: I do what it takes to get the job done RIGHT.  If you’re a buyer, I’m committed to helping you find and purchase the best possible home.  If you’re a seller, my goal is to sell your home as rapidly as possible for the most desirable terms
