As a Real Estate professional in the Monterey Bay Area for over 5 years, I can tell you that this is a complicated, delicate and very tough profession.While my previous experience in marketing, product management and as a professional athlete are helpful, what truly makes this job a pleasure is the excellent partnership that I have with Kris Butler, who has over 20 years of experience in local Real Estate. Together we are able to blend work experience garnered from hundreds of tricky transactions combined with youthful exuberance to bring you Real Estate solutions for a market that is dynamic and every changing.
The current Real Estate market places demands on an agents’ expertise like never before. “Traditional” sales, where we have a standard seller and buyer, seem to be few and far between. More than likely we will encounter some type of distressed sale such as a bank owned or REO (Real Estate Owned) sale which is the type of transaction that seems to generate the largest number of multiple offers and buyer frustrations – first through the competitive offer process and then through the very difficult escrow period where the bank makes the rules and we typically have to comply to purchase the house.
While dealing with banks for an REO property can be intimidating, dealing with banks for a short sale is downright tedious, stressful, exhilerating, and all manners of emotion that can literrally result in a great purchase for a buyer and a much improved future financial landscape for a seller OR the whole deal can sadly crash and burn at the very end. These transactions are not for the faint of heart…not just buyers and sellers, but agents must be extremely adept as well.
Frankly, this is a market that is very exciting for Kris and myself. We are well versed in all aspects of sales and have successfully weathered a hemorrhaging economy and Real Estate market that has thinned the herd of agents by over 30%. To still be standing and thriving is only one reason that we will be the best Real Estate professional you will ever work with. Once you meet us and can see for yourself our commitment and passion for your personal Real Estate situation you will realize why we have so many satisfied, life long clients.
