Need your house sold tomorrow? Need a house tomorrow? Call me today!

My philosophy:

I believe the role of a Broker is to coach you through the buying or selling process and taking the time to make sure you understand every step of the transaction no matter if it is about financial literacy, first time buying, good inspections, appraisal values, the importance of title insurance, repeat buying, quit claim deeds, getting to closing, investing options, retirement assets, 1031 exchanges, sheriff and tax foreclosure counseling, adaptive housing, home retrofitting, etc.  I am licensed and have that special training, experience and knowledge to assist the various needs of my clients and customers.

Comprehensive knowledge of the area
Being born and raised in Detroit and being a resident of the Metropolitan Detroit area, I know the local communities very well and I have the real estate experience servicing them. This in-depth knowledge of the area and the real estate market can help you make the most informed decisions.  


Committed to ongoing training
A wide variety of continuing training helps our office and staff deliver high quality services to our customers and clients.  I have taken the time to become one of the local expert Short Sale and Foreclosure Resources, Pricing Strategist/BPOs, Seniors Real Estate Services Representative, Accredited Buyers Representative, Military Resource Professional and have completed the 90 hour Broker's training and licensing requirements obtaining my Broker's license to help you with your diverse or advanced buying needs.
