When buying and selling a home, it is important to trust the team that will represent you, from your real estate agent to your attorney and mortgage broker. Checking on certifications or credentials can bring peace of mind and help you as a consumer feel more “at home” with the real estate professionals with whom you will work. The proper credentials and strong professional knowledge base can also make your real estate transaction flow more smoothly.
Perhaps you found me through a positive referral from a friend, so feel like you are in safe hands – that’s great! But as a licensed Realtor did you know that we are bound by a strict code of ethics and required to take continuing education courses as well. I recently completed my training on short sales and foreclosures (SFR) and on serving as a buyer’s representative (ABR).
One of the most important things you should be aware of is my knowledge of your area. I have lived in Maplewood, NJ for 17 years and with three kids in three different schools I am in and around Millburn/Short Hills, Livingston, West Orange, South Orange, Montclair and other nearby towns for various reason constantly. I know all about this area, as you’ll notice on my active website and social media pages. I am active in my local community and can provide you with a list of referrals, from satisfied customers to service providers. Use the pages of my website, like the about page or specific community pages, as tools to give you information about the community, but also about me as a professional. Reference my blog to gain a better understanding of my knowledge of the local area and the real estate industry at large.
