I have been a Realtor for 30 years and seen many changes both in the markets I work in and in the nature of the business. One of the things that is true is that no matter what, you have to be ready for changes. As a home seller, new marketing, new buyer preferences and new laws and ordinances all impact your ability to maximize your position in your current market. As a home buyer, new lender requirements for loans, new neighborhood dynamics and historical values all are influences when you are ready to buy. Sacramento is a great place to live and real estate in Sacramento is very dynamic at this writing.
My wife, Dana and I really enjoy the proximity to San Francisco, Lake Tahoe and the wine country around the Napa Valley. The two rivers that flow through the Sacramento region offer great opportunities to hike, bike and be with our Standard Poodle. Downtown Sacramento is a favorite of ours for going out to dinner, attending local events and The Crocker Art Museum. We are active in the Metro Chamber of Commerce and participate in many fun events with other members.
Professionally we are both CRS, which is Certified Residential Specialists, only about 8% of Realtors nationwide have attained that designation. I am also a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist-CLHMS, which is attained by education and production in the luxury home market. We are both dedicated life long learners with a commitment to our profession.
We enjoy traveling around the State of California and visiting our many friends next door in Nevada.
By the way, I forgot golf….a passion of mine….
