"ABOVE AND BEYOND"
I have had many past clients use my services numerous times and well as their children. I feel this sets me in the Above and Beyond Club as I live by the mantra that one real estate transaction is important but there is greater value in developing a relationship as a professional as well as a good friend to my clients that will last decades and well beyond a typical 60 day real estate transaction. I feel these values are very important in business as well as life in general. I value every client, no matter the price range as my business is based on developing a long term relationship. I appreciate working with the first time buyer as I love to experience the excitement they go thru with their purchase of the first house or residence.
