The difference

“Set high standards for yourself and don’t settle for anything less.” -Theodore Roosevelt

Nothing means more to me than helping people and serving others. That’s why I look forward to meeting you someday soon. Until then, there’s no way for you to really know who I am, what makes me different from other agents, and why you might want to work with me.

But perhaps a true story might help.

A few years ago, I had the privilege of listing a beautiful home in Beverly Hills.  By listening more than talking, I earned the trust of the owners and we collaborated on a plan to sell the property in a way that best suited their needs and concerns.

Thanks to smart pricing and marketing, we received multiple offers and I was able to negotiate a deal my clients were thrilled with. Throughout the transaction, I treated the buyer, who was represented by another agent, with the same honest respect I gave the sellers. However, when the buyer threatened to cancel unless he received a huge repair credit, I held firm on behalf of my clients and was able to successfully close escrow without conceding a single dollar.

Years passed. Then a few months ago, I received an unexpected phone call from the buyer who had purchased the home. He told me how angry he had been at the time about losing the repair credit negotiation, but that he never forgot how fiercely loyal I was to my clients and how effectively I represented them. He said he had decided to sell his property and wanted that same kind of representation. So rather than use his previous agent or any of the others he could choose from, he wanted me to be the one to list his home.

I look forward to the honor of doing the same for you.
