I like challenge. My previous careers as a mathematics teacher, computer programmer and systems analyst are evidence of this attribute. I entered the real estate business in 1992, when many agents were leaving the field. In spite of the poor market, I found buyers and sellers. Nobody knows the real estate market like I do! I know the houses that are for sale, the houses that have sold and those that have not sold. I know the listed properties, the For Sale by Owners and the bank REOs. This extensive knowledge sets me apart from the competition and makes my services invaluable to both sellers and buyers.
