– Owner & Co-Founder of Bella Casa Real Estate Group
– Licensed Realtor® since 2004; active in Yamhill and the surrounding counties.
Nowhere does a Realtor® prove his or her value more than in negotiating a successful transaction. With a business background as an account executive in technology sales, I bring strong negotiation and communication skills to each transaction. Also highly engaged with local market conditions and sales trends, I provide clients valuable data to help them make informed purchasing and selling decisions.
I have always been attentive to email, I answer my cell phone almost 24/7 and I return voicemail calls expeditiously. I love answering client questions and will address your concerns respectfully, in a timely manner, and with a willingness to learn.
There was a day when real estate transactions were sealed with a handshake. History confirms that those handshakes often ended in lawsuits and worse! I am pleased to share the load with, and benefit from the resources of the colleagues in our office and the members of my team. We will always have someone available for you and promise to give your transaction complete attention!
Dedication to one’s craft is at the heart of professionalism. It means I am a lifelong student. Skill, talent, and knowledge without high ethical standards, patience, and tolerance to all does not satisfy. Graciousness may be the crowning virtue.
