If you think I’m not your typical realtor, you’re absolutely right. I’ve spent over 22 years developing brands and marketing strategies in corporate America for everyone from small business owners to corporate giants. Over the years, I’ve lead contract negotiations, started mentoring programs and even helped several business start-ups, which eventually led me to real estate. Why is my background important for you? It’s simple. My diverse background has enabled me to become an extraordinary realtor who has the skills, ability, and experience to give you the advantages you need when buying or selling your home.
I’m not your average “cookie-cutter” realtor
Real estate is a highly competitive business and you need someone who is at the top of their game to represent you whether you’re buying or selling. I am very passionate about this business and that attitude is reflected in my work ethic and professionalism. My philosophy is that today’s market requires your realtor to be a first-class marketing strategist, photographer, copywriter, designer, cinematographer, social media guru and web wizard. With me, you’ll find all those qualities and more.
I love Nebraska
I was born and raised on a 2,500 acre farm just north of Omaha where I learned all about hard work and the value of friends and family. Growing up in a small town taught me about community and how important it is to get to know people, especially if you want to help them. Whether I was learning how to fly a plane or playing college basketball, I was always taking away great life lessons from each experience. The people and experiences in my life helped shape the core values that I reference everyday: Honesty, Trust and great Communication.
Everyone needs a competitive edge
As I mentioned before, I’m not your average “cookie-cutter” realtor and that attitude applies to everything I do. I chose to work with Omaha’s strongest brand in real estate, NP Dodge, because I believe in giving my clients every possible advantage. I’ve assembled one of the largest and best networks around through my relationships with agents, contractors, lenders, appraisers, inspectors and more. My marketing materials are professionally designed and customized for every property I represent and I never post photos without making sure they are retouched to look their very best. Building my social networks both in person and on-line is a huge advantage that I attribute to my years in marketing. I’m always looking at what’s new in real estate and technology so that my clients can benefit by always being a step ahead of the game.
Why do I go the extra mile?
Because it matters. Making sure that you have the best possible representation in the real estate market is very important to me. That’s why I promise I will always be honest and tell you what it will take to meet your goals. You can rely on me to help you find solutions when you need them. You can trust me to keep my eye on the ball and help you get the best deal possible, whether buying or selling. I will go above and beyond to ensure that your experience with me is a positive one and in the end it is my hope to count you as not only a client, but also a friend. Are you ready to talk? Just call or fill out the contact form. Let’s set up a time that is convenient for you, grab a cup of coffee and get to work. I look forward to meeting with you!
