My Values & Some Quotes from Reviews that Demonstrate those Values

 

I value availability & work around my clients' time frames (1). I also value a strong work ethic (2), and saving my clients as much time and money as possible (3), whether buying or selling. I seek to get sellers a premium on their home while finding great buys for buyers. I will fight for my clients' best interests (4). I believe that an informed buyer or seller makes the best decisions, and am dedicated to that end, as a brief review of my website as well as my reviews should demonstrate (5). As a former youth minister of over 4 years, ethics, including but not limited to integrity, are very important to me (6). As someone with the lowest average rating by clients on any real estate website being a 4.8/5, that scored in the top two percentile in math on the SAT, scored an 80/80 on the Writing Skills PSAT, and attended "The Harvard of Christian Schools" (Wheaton College) with a small academic scholarship, excellence is a top priority for me (7).
