ABOUT ME…

I am a native Central Ohioan. I have lived most of my life in the North-Northwest area of Franklin County, and now Southern Delaware. I graduated from Whetstone High School and attended Ohio State University. For almost 20 years of my adult career, I worked at an office equipment and later computer company owned by my family. In 1989, I became a Realtor. I have the pleasure of being a Realtor with HER since 2001. The reason I came to HER, is their cutting edge marketing and technology standards and ever-evolving growth. I do not believe that another company can match the success and results achievable with their marketing and my experience. Over $10+ Million in sales and 120 transactions, you will be working with the best company and an experienced, dedicated agent.

    CONSIDERING A NEW BUILD? WHY WORK WITH A REALTOR IN THE PURCHASE OF A NEW BUILD?

    To protect your best interests. The builders model/attendant/salesperson is usually NOT a Realtor and NOT subject to the strict Code of Ethics and Standards of Conduct that I am bound by as a licensed Realtor in the State of Ohio. I will protect your best interest, I have no allegiance to the Builder, only to you.

    The best builders will welcome my participation.  It will cost you nothing., the cost is part of their advertising budget.  They know you will not buy more than 1-3 homes in a lifetime.  I will potentially bring them 1-3 buyers per year or more.  They want to treat my buyers and me very well.

    The attendant/salesperson represents the best interests of the Sellers (builder).  Most are very conscientious and operate with open fairness in mind.  My job is to make sure that the builder adheres to the terms in the contract and that those terms are customary and fair.  Also, mistakes happen during the building process (they are human).  I can assure that they are rectified to your satisfaction.

    Carol has sold two homes for us and helped us to purchase three. She priced our homes realistically to sell quickly for the best possible Price. She was also incredibly patient with us as we looked at a large number of homes before ettling on the right one for our situation. She then did the same when our situation changed and our home needs changed. I highly recommend Carol for your real estate needs.

    Carol helped us find our new home. We looked at several, but just did not like that they all needed something. Carol suggested a couple of builder inventory homes. We got what we wanted and it was so easy. Thank you Carol!

    ….I am so thankful, that morning, Phil was looking for a house and he ran across a house you had. We didn’t buy it, but you got on it at thatmoment. Next day we were looking at houses. You are the most honest and well informed, hard working realtor out there. And when it was time to sell, no one would have worked as hard and intelligently as you did in selling that house. You’re a good realtor, with all the suggestions,changes, pricing. You know your stuff, no doubt.

    We listed our previous home with Carol and went looking for our next home. We found a great buy. Then we had to get our house sold.. The Market was not great and she was honest with us on the things we would need to do to get it sold. I really appreciated her professional opinion And suggestions. We sold it in 30 days…more than we expected.

    We are enjoying being home owners. Our first and we are making it all ours. As you know it did need some things, but the setting was really special. And we had to have the woodburning fireplace, fenced yard, the full basement (we will finish it next year or so). There was more good than bad. We couldn’t be happier..Thank you .

    Thanks again for walking me through and being there at each step of the buying process.  Appreciate it.
