I have a deep understanding of Pinellas market and know it's neighborhoods, their amenities, and their characteristics. As your buyers agent I look forward to providing you with excellent guidance and research finding you your dream home.
Are you a mobile user?
Mobile users can start searching now by simply clicking the Savvy Card button. My Savvy Card is free. It's easy to use, and it's directly connected to the Pinellas MLS. This is important because many of the big real estate apps actually aren't, so they often show out-dated info. This can be very fustrating to my clients, so don't waste gas, time and energy driving around looking at homes that have already sold. Give my Savvy Card a try.
Is now the right time to sell?
Determining if it's the right time to sell is be a big decision. You may have many questions you need answered, such as...
- What is the current value of your home?
- Is home value up in your area?
- What is the current market atmosphere?
- Is it a buyer's or a sellers' market?
- How long does a home typically stay on the market in your neighborhood?
I can answer these questions and provide you with FREE HOME EVALUATION REPORT that details comparative sales in your neighborhood which helps determining if now is the right time for you to sell. This is an excellent starting point for any seller. To request a FREE home evaluation report simply call or email me. It's a service I'm happy to preform as I love hearing from new clients.

Selling Your Home
My goal is to to sell your home for the highest value, in the shortest amount of time, under the most favorable terms. To do this I actively market my clients homes using a blend of online and traditional print marketing campaigns.
In today's market technology plays a huge role in sales. Over 92% of buyers will find their next home using the internet. It's never been more important work with an agent that understands how to showcase your home online.
More Tools I use to Market my Clients Homes...
I use social media, YouTube, Facebook, Google+ and other creative outlets to market my clients homes along with the well established MLS and RE/MAX platforms and global networks. I also put care into marketing my client's home's for mobile devices, which account for over 60% of searches during the weekends.
Florida is one of the most popular markets in the United States for foreign residential investment. So giving your listing global reach has never been more important, thankfully RE/MAX listings are syndicated to over 1,000 different national and international websites. You never know where your next sale may come from, so it's important that your home is being showcased for maximum online exposoure.
Benefits of working with a RE/MAX Agent
My brokerage RE/MAX Metro is the #1 real estate company in Southern Pinellas. As you can see by "total agents" number on the graph, we have half the agents of Keller WIlliams, but still our brokerage sold more homes in the area than any other brokerage. This is a powerful testament to our expertise. Re/max's global network, and their continuous dedication to education and training. We use the latest technology, and we understand how to reach specific targetted markets.
You're home is incredible valuable, when it becomes time to sell doesn't it just make sense to work with the best? For Southern Pinellas that's RE/MAX metro!
