How can I bring VALUE to you:  by assisting clients by providing answers to their real estate questions and helping dreams and goals come true through the sale and purchase of their homes.    I am a hands on agent who goes above and beyond to make sure my clients home shows and photos in the best possible way.  I will assist with the stagging and preparing process, be honest in what it will take to sell your home and ask me about my handy-man special, for that additional help in preparing your home to sell.   I also offer free client bonuses, just ask me what those entail.

Downsizing:  Empty nesting coming soon - or maybe you are already there.  (Me too!)   Let me do a personalized Comparative Market Analysis on your home and begin the discussion of what type of home you would like to downsize to.  A rambler?  A townhome?  A condo?  A smaller two-story?  A home on the lake?  A home in the cities?   So many choices - let's talk about what it is your are dreaming of. 


Here are a couple of testimonials.  Go to Zillow to see more references.  


"Lisa is amazing! We had one agent prior to her during our home search and dealt with one lost deal after another. If it hadn't been for Lisa, we never would have even had the opportunity to put in an offer on the house we live in now. Our house already had an offer in place. Lisa fought for us to  have the opportunity and our offer was accepted within a week. She has a great team and her husband is very knowledgeable with construction aspects. Having him come to some walk throughs was a great help. I highly recommend Lisa for the first time buyer (as we were at the time). She will have the utmost patience, provide as much information she can, make sure you're getting a good deal, and walk you through the process step by step. Thanks Lisa for all that you do!!!" - S.Edina


"Lisa has been extremely helpful in my search for a new home. She really understands what I need and want in a house - and also what I DON'T want! She has found many great candidates for me, and is always available to set up a showing. Lisa is honest and forthright about the properties we look at, and has many creative ideas about how to use unique spaces and features of any given house. She is excellent at following up with me, and sending me updates throughout the process. Lisa is a true problem-solver, and I know she is dedicated to helping me find a new home that will make me very happy.
We are waiting for an offer to be accepted on a short-sale house, and so far, I couldn't be happier with how Lisa has taken care of me as a customer."
"I know that Lisa was looking out for me - when the perfect house came along, she was the first one to see it, and she called me immediately to tell me about it. This house was exactly what I was looking for, and if not for her lightning-fast response it might have gotten away!
