I formally worked in hi-tech in Silicon Valley-Bay Area as a Financial Analyst before changing careers.  My responsibilities were in finance and global operations.  I was afforded the opportunity to travel to off-site manufacturing operations abroad.  My emphasis was in logistical operations, financial analysis and processes and procedures. I worked in a number of industries which included hi-tech, defense, software and hardware and retail which comprised of both the public and private sector.
 
I decided to change careers and chose real estate.  This career has its rewards and continues to change based on market conditions.  There are multiple software applications realtors use as well as attending classes and staying on top of new laws.  Bottom line, I pass that training and knowledge on to my clients to have them reach an informed decision in buying or selling. 
 
First-time buyers are overwhelmed with the amount of information they need to learn regarding loans, contracts, real estate terms and today's market condition.  This market is giving opportunities to buyers for home ownership that has not been seen before. And they are taking advantage of the buyer’s programs, low interest rates, and the reduction in home prices which has given them an advantage to buy. Even seasoned home owners have to be re-educated due to current market changes in their area, interest rates, lending practices and now short-sales, foreclosures, and loan modifications.
 
I enjoy teaching clients about market and real estate conditions as well as educating first-time buyers so they can feel confident in their decisions.  It’s exciting to share the joy with clients as they buy or sell a home because it means a life-changing event is occurring in their lives. It could be a job transfer, relocating out of the area or state, downsizing, empty-nesters, or needing a larger home for a growing family.
 
Please contact me so we can get started in making your dreams of home ownership come true.
