Jon and Melanie - Real Estate is our JaM
I am a full time Realtor, except that is a lie. I am also a full time husband and a full time father. Originally from the Seattle area, I have been a Valley Resident for 21 years, a Phoenix Realtor for 16 years, a Husband for 13 and a Father for 11. I tend to work hard / play hard, laugh often and give myself 100% to everything I do.
Having been involved in countless thousands of real estate negotiations myself, I enjoy the negotiation where others find discomfort. The deal structuring and negotiations that are a daunting task to most realtors has become my favorite part of my job. There is nothing better than helping a client secure a great property.
I believe my success comes from the fact that I put my client's needs first and I am a highly skilled negotiator that understands both sides of a negotiation to make a deal happen. I believe in real estate. I believe in God. I believe that my purpose is to help others win through my counsel and expertise. I believe buying or selling a house can be fun. I believe that a day on the lake beats a day doing just about anything else. I believe my children are smarter and more mature than many....well, most of the adults I know. I believe my wife is too amazing for words and I am blessed because she chose me.
There are many criteria that can be used to select a Realtor to sell your home, but may I suggest hiring someone that is a skilled negotiator, whom is also incredibly experience and familiar with handling all the issues that can arise, from appraisal issues, inspection issues and buyer loan failures. It so happens that I fit those criteria.
I’m not as much glitz and glamour as I am a commonsensical, boots on the ground, sort of gal. I value honesty, integrity, and I work hard professionally and personally. I’m a kind-hearted, giving person that will go the extra mile to do a job well.
My entire career has been spent in the real estate industry. First, with marketing and design. (I have a love for beauty and aesthetics.) My mom was also a real estate broker for 25 years in Billings, Montana. I love working with both buyers and sellers. As your buyer’s agent, I have patience and dedication as we find you the right home. As your seller’s agent, I’m good at getting your property noticed. I have a degree in visual communication; creating marketing flyers, social media ads and driving traffic to your listing is one of my strengths. I’m up for door knocking, open houses, and/or direct mail. I will do what it takes.
