Your Source For Your Real Estate Needs!
Looking for a happy, stress-free home buying or selling experience? If you are planning to buy a home or sell a home in the Goldsboro Wayne County / SJAFB area, contact me and we can discuss the process to get you started in the right direction. Below, I have listed some pointers to assist you in making your decision for an agent to represent you. If you have questions, just let me know.
First, you'll want an agent that is a Realtor. This means that the agent is held to a higher standard and that the agent has to abide by a strict Code of Ethics. The Realtor should be ready and able to make a fulltime commitment to you. I can and will do that. I am full time in the industry which allows more time to meet your needs when scheduling appointments as well as more time to make certain that your sale or purchase details are dealt with properly. I am a Broker Associate with RE/MAX Complete which is located in Goldsboro, NC. Living in Goldsboro, NC also allows me to assist in your real estate needs in the Goldsboro area with ease.
Second, you'll want an agent with the experience needed to provide you with info on the local neighborhoods, schools, market conditions, ordinances, etc. I was born in Wayne County and have lived here most all of my life, and with my 13 years of real estate experience in the Goldsboro, Wayne County market - I have the expertise and track record of success you need. You don't have to worry about me being new to the area as well. Being a lifetime resident of the area, allows me the advantage over the agent that may have only been here for a short time...trying to advise you on a huge purchase...one in which you need all the information possible to make a good decision. A large portion of my buyers and sellers are military since we are home to Seymour Johnson Air Force Base (SJAFB). I am very familiar with the moving process with the military and am ready to assist you with your real estate needs.
Third, you'll want an agent who embraces the convenience of technology without losing the personal touch. You'll love the resources available on my website and the e-mail alerts that I send, but these will never replace the time I spend with you, serving as your personal guide through this exciting process. I have spent additional time training on new technology and have earned the e-PRO designation. I see the importance in providing as much information as possible on my web site for your convenience. You'll be able to research articles relating to mortgages and current rates, information on locking your rate, search my listings, perform an MLS search, contact me for assistance in setting up an automatic e-mail with homes that meet your needs in order to eliminate hours of searching manually, schedule appointments to view homes, learn about green building and its benefits, obtain information about our local Home Builders Association of Wayne County, as well as many other topics...all free of charge! If you think additional topics should be added...just let me know.
Fourth, you'll want an agent that has a good understanding of the building process if you are looking to build a home or to purchase one that is in the construction phase. Having been involved in a closely related industry for 23 years prior to my real estate career, I am certainly well trained in assisting you to make selections for your new home as well as making good decisions that you will be happy with for a long time. I have been active in the Kinston Home Builders Association as well as the Home Builders Association of Wayne County for 18 + years combined. This keeps me in touch with the many changes that affect the building industry. I have earned the CNHS (Certified New Home Specialist) Designation which is a certification and training class that teaches the ins and outs of construction. All my experience and training will again increase your chances of great results with buying a newly constructed home.
Fifth, You'll want an agent that has furthered their education in the real estate industry. This is generally recognized easily by the designations an agent holds. I have earned many of them...CRS (Certified Residential Specialist), GRI (Graduate of Realtor Institute), ABR (Accredited Buyer Representative), CNHS (Certified New Home Specialist), e-PRO (Technology), GREEN (NAR Green), MRP (Military Relocation Professional), CDPE (Certified Distressed Property Expert). With this training, comes the knowledge to, again, ensure you great results.
Developing a good and solid plan will allow you more peace of mind and confidence that your agent is taking care of you. To see what my past clients have said about my service, just go to my Testimonials page. I am a very detailed person by nature and I feel that allows me to make sure that your sale or purchase goes as smoothly as possible. I hope to hear from you soon.
