Let me make your next move smooth and enjoyable!


If you’re working remotely for the foreseeable future, why limit yourself to a home down the road from your old office? Remote work means you can broaden your search and your possibilities. DM me today if you’d like to see what’s available in your expanded home search radius.

DM me today so I can answer any questions and make sure you have the information you need to start your homebuying journey with confidence.

It’s one of the many reasons why homeownership can help you create financial stability. DM me if you’re ready to start building your wealth as a homeowner this year.


Buying a home is one of the most significant purchases you’ll make. If you have questions about the process, your budget, or your timeline, you need a trusted real estate advisor on your side to answer them. DM me today so we can start a conversation and you can begin your homebuying journey.

The mortgage pre-approval process is a critical step to take as a buyer. Your pre-approval letter shows sellers you’re a serious buyer and provides clarity about your true price range. DM me any questions you have about the process so you can get started on your homeownership journey.


Buyers have to be ready to compete in today’s sellers’ market. One of the best strategies is to partner with an agent so you can plan ahead and be ready to act when you’ve found a home that checks all your boxes. DM me so you have a trusted real estate advisor on your side.


Climate risks are having an impact on where people buy homes.

And if it’s something that’s on your mind, you want to work with an agent with expertise on the local area, what’s impacting homes near you, and what features you may want your home to have to help safeguard it from the elements.

Want to buy? Together, we’ll find you a home you love that’s built to last.


Thinking about buying a home, but you’re worried about the upkeep?

A home warranty may be able to help. It gives you peace of mind that you’ve got coverage for some repairs.

And we may even be able to negotiate to get a seller to cover one for you. Not every seller is going to do it, but I can get the conversation started.


Wondering about the future of home prices? Here's the scoop.

Experts forecast a steady rise in home prices until at least 2028.

That means buying now sets you up to gain equity as values climb. But, if you wait, the price of a home will only be higher later on.

If you want to chat about what this means for you, I’m here and happy to help.


More homes are hitting the market this year, and that means more options if you’ve been looking to buy.

But, while inventory is growing, we're still below where we’d be in a normal year.

That's where I come in. Let's team up and navigate this evolving market together. Your future home might be closer than you think.

Considering making a move? According to, profit potential and family priorities are the top motivators for homeowners right now.

Let’s dive into the reasons driving your decision. With home values and inventory on the rise, it might just be the right time to make that change.


The trend is undeniable: new single-family homes are getting smaller. As buyer preferences shift towards more efficient and manageable living spaces, builders are adapting quickly to meet this demand. This change highlights the evolving landscape of the housing market post-pandemic.


Hearing that mortgage rates are going to stay high? Here’s why.

The Fed just met and decided inflation is still too high, so they won’t bring down the Federal Funds Rate.

While that doesn’t determine mortgage rates, it does have an impact. It means they’ll be volatile for a while longer.


In an unpredictable world, home has become much more than where you lay your head at night. A house provides safety, stability, and a sense of accomplishment – both financially and personally. DM me today so we can make your homeownership goals a top priority.
