Other than my college years, I have lived in the Portland area all my life. I taught algebra, geometry and 8th grade math at the middle school level in the Portland Public School District for 25 years. Now I am enjoying the start of my 5th year as a real estate broker for Century 21 Hart Realty.
There is a lot for me to learn in this business world. I truly enjoy looking at houses and comparing prices in different neighborhoods for clients who want to buy or sell a house. It is necessary for my clients to understand that my hours are not just 8:00 to 5:00, Monday through Friday. My hours are whatever is convenient for the buyer/seller.
In most cases, having observed from my cohorts in the office, their working hours are very irregular. That's what it takes to help people buy a home or sell their house.
More Service, Less Stress. Steering a transaction safely through escrow is a hallmark of excellent service. "The hard part isn't finding the house, it's getting through escrow." I do whatever makes the transaction as stress-free as possible. People should be able to live their life and not have to worry about their house. That's not to say every transaction is stree-free, but (if there is a problem), I handle it.
I take extra care to consult and support my clients through every step of the transaction. I really care aboutl my clients and they become "my friends" and we will do more for our "friends." I work hard to fulfill my clients' most ambitious Real Estate dreams.
I do not consider myself a "salesperson" but rather a valuable source for information about neighborhoods, schools, daycare, recreational amenities and other points of interest.
