It's one thing to show my clients homes, but it's another to get into creepy, forgotten spaces and show them everything. I come prepared with flashlights and sanitizer in tow so my clients don't encounter any surprises down the line.
When the attorney's office said they needed some original documents notarized the day before closing, my clients panicked. They lived two hours away from the attorney's office, and it was too late to overnight them.
“I tackled what should have been six months of work with a misfire of a septic tank in four days. From calling offices all over the city like the Director of Public Works and City Sewer, we got what was ‘an impossible job’ done! How’s that for a relentless spirit?”
“A newly widowed client was left a home that was basically a stockpile of knickknacks and non-running cars. With my caring touch and quick thinking, we began to dig for the things that truly mattered. I uncovered a photo album of timeless memories that the family can cherish forever.

“When my 90-year-old client learned that her home was broken into, the first person she thought to call was me. I called the police and stuck around with her close family and friends as the home was surveyed and her kicked-in door was repaired.
“When an elderly seller needed help, I came to the rescue with cleaning solution and lawnmower in tow. My helping hand didn’t waver after my client passed away, because his daughter hired me to sell the house I helped maintain.”
