What I love about real estate: Coming from another profession that focused primarily on paperwork, I am grateful that real estate allows me the opportunity to change my mindset and focus on personal relationships with my clients to help them achieve their individual goals.
Favorite house sold: A friend contacted me and asked me to list his home. I was still relatively new to real estate at the time, but he entrusted me with selling his home, which needed to be sold in order for he and his family to complete construction on their dream home. We were able to get it sold quickly (and at full asking price), and I was able to deliver the news on the job site of his new home being constructed. To this day, any time we see each other he and his family thank me for helping to make their dream a reality.
What FresYes means to me: Focusing on the positive things in our community (i.e. schools, teams, parks, businesses, etc.)
Favorite Fresno landmark: Chukchansi Park (Grizzly Stadium)
Favorite place to get a drink in the Fresno area: Reno’s Bar (Kerman)
Favorite thing to do on the weekend: Work outside (i.e. play in the dirt)
Favorite non-Fresno destination: The beach (central coast)
Cake or pie: Cake
More about me: The switch to real estate over the past few years has been a huge blessing for me and my family. The home buying process can be an extremely confusing one, especially for first-time home buyers, and I am fortunate that my educational background and experience allow me to keep my clients informed and involved through every step of their transaction.
Whether you are looking to buy, sell, invest, or even if you just have a question about the process, please feel free to call, text or email me and let’s make your goals a reality.
I love where I live, and I also love what I do. I'm lucky to be able to work in a profession in which I get to build relationships; one that has me meeting new people each and every day and helping them to build new lives in my beloved city. I'm lucky enough to work in a profession in which I can marry cutting-edge technologies and marketing techniques to good, old-fashioned, nose-to-the-grindstone work. I am lucky enough to work in a profession that allows me to work as an advocate for my clients; to use every tool at my disposal to get a job done well for them, and with as little stress and expense as possible.
I love my city. I love my job. One inspires my excellence for the other.
Fresno? I say FresYES
