What is a good lead for me?
Anyone needing someone who is well experienced with whom they can trust to work for their best interest in total focus! Anyone who wants to be educated about the home buying and/or selling process; anyone considering a “move up” or thinking about downsizing, whether to this county or another; anyone whose property is in a “Trust” or thinking about the need for a “Trust” rather than probate; anyone considering real estate as an investment. Anyone concerned about the sale of an existing property relating to possible tax consequences; anyone considering moving to Southern California. Anyone who requires an experienced agent to take care of “dressing up the house” for the seller (coordinating bids, repairs and/or upgrades) in the sellers absence and be “responsible” for the work. In a nutshell, a good lead is anyone who wants to investigate or create the “right” action for their circumstance. With so many years of full time experience we’ve probably “seen this and done that.”
