    I established Realistic Realty in 1997 when the company I was associated with was bought by a larger competitor. I had already obtained an associate broker's license through additional college courses, so it was not difficult to start my own firm. Having lost several jobs due to company reorganizations previously, I was growing tired of the interruptions to my career.
    I also wanted to continue to offer comprehensive real estate services for a reduced fee. In other words, discounting commissions without sacrificing service. Furthermore, it was my intention to keep the company small in order to oversee each transaction and personalize the process. Having worked for other companies in the past, I had witnessed several less than stellar examples of buyer and seller representation that I wanted to avoid. Acting as a seller's agent or buyer's agent is an important task. I take it seriously.

    Since then, along with continuing education, I have taken several courses toward professional designations in order to enhance my knowledge of the industry. A list of those designations appears below. That training and my degree in business management has enabled Realistic Realty to withstand the test of time in good and soft markets alike.

    Through the years, I have helped hundreds of buyers and sellers achieve their real esate goals with a very high level of client satisfaction. That is evidenced by the fact that a large percentage of my business comes from those very people I have helped in the past. I also estimate that I have saved sellers thousands in real estate commissions.

    Contact me for an analysis of your property or help with finding a new home. I would be happy to help you.

Nationwide -- CBR®

has been a "niche" market since the 1990's. Since then,  four "designations" specific to this specialty area have been developed while four other designations support the buyer representation concept.  The CBR® was trademarked and patented in 1993 and has been a choice of many local boards across the country since that time. CBR enjoys its independence from NAR with its ability to offer instructional programs that are locally focused rather than a product that is standardized in format and designed to be presented uniformly across the country. CBR feels there is a need for locality specific instruction especially when there are changes in local regulations.
