As a Realtor, it is my goal to provide the best professional services to my clients while serving my profession with the highest standards and ethics.
The average person does not buy or sell a home often. In years past, many owned one home in a lifetime; but times have changed. Now buyers may buy, and in turn sell several homes during their lifetime.
Just as tax laws change and interest rates change, so do real estate rules and regulations. For instance in November 2013, guidelines changed dramatically in regard to how real estate brokers represent their clients. What was good in October was no longer acceptable in November. It is my job to stay up to date.
For that reason, it is important to engage a full time, consciences real estate professional when buying or selling a home.
Many years ago I learned that ignorance is not an excuse. As a real estate professional I must stay up to date on all that regulates my profession. Just as in any profession, not all real estate brokers are created equally. I not only strive to stay up to date on everything that impacts my profession, I also conduct myself with the upmost integrity and professional standards.
When I chose to become a Realtor, I was fortunate that Norma Cokeley agreed to take me on her team. Norma is one of the top real estate professionals in Central Oklahoma - and in fact the nation. Her standards of excellence and her professional ethics are without question. For 31 years she has been a leader in the Oklahoma City market. My family and I have bought and/or sold six houses with her, so I know her not only as a friend and colleague, but also as a client.
Buying or selling a home is often the largest financial transaction a family makes and involves many legal issues. Thatâ€™s why it is in your best interest to engage a professional that looks out for your best interests.
I would like to be your Realtor of choice. If you would like to discuss your residential real estate needs with me, call 405.751.4848 and letâ€™s find a mutually acceptable time to sit down and get to know each other. I look forward to hearing from you!
