Credentials

 

As a buyer or seller, there are numerous choices you can make to reach your real estate goals. Choosing a REALTOR is an essential part of reaching those goals. Finding an agent that is experienced, someone you trust and someone that has your best interest in min is of extreme importance. Your expectations will not only be met, but hopefully exceeded.

  • I work for Lake & Company Real Estate, which has earned a prestigious reputation by only hiring Seattle’s best agents.
  • I participate in extensive ongoing training that focuses on the issues that affect my clients.
  • I have 23 years of real estate experience that is ready to work for you!
  • I am a Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE), which means I am fully trained with the knowledge and ability needed to successfully negotiate your real estate transaction.
  • I am a Certified Residential Specialist. I have advanced training in residential real estate and a proven track record of sales transactions
  • I am an Accredited Seller Representative, which means I exemplify a strong commitment to exceed seller expectations throughout all aspects of the real estate transaction.
  • I am a Zillow All-Star, which means I have made enough valuable contributions to Zillow and have been granted All-Star status.

In this supercharged marketplace, you need more than just a REALTOR. You need a professional with the unique training and know – how to create opportunities, identify potential pitfalls up front and make your home buying or selling experience a success. This calls for a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS). To earn the CRS designation, every REALTOR must have a significant mix of experience and a predetermined number of real estate transactions.

Ethics aren’t just important to a REALTOR – they’re essential. That’s why every CRS is required to maintain membership in the National Association of REALTORS and abide by its strict Code of Ethics. That means, when you work with a CRS, you can rest assured you’re dealing with a trained real estate expert who will treat you fairly and professionally.

I feel that it is essential to educate myself so I can provide my clients with the service they deserve. The following are a sample of the classes that I have recently attended, which will ultimately benefit my clients.
