Designations, Certificates and Awards

It’s no secret that Realtors in Arizona have a lot of classtime that is needed to get their license, but what happens after their test?  Most simply do the minimum required hours in sponsored classes provided by their local board which may or may not be directly related to the clients they intend to serve in the future.  You can look up how much continuing education your Realtor has taken by cusing the ADRE search tool.  I have continued my education with hundreds of hours each year of class time taking practical classes to assure I am the best Realtor to represent you.  I stay on top of trends to obtain very speficic Certifications and Designations to help ensure that your transition into your new home is as successful and as stress free as possible.

Negotiatinos during a Real Estate transaction can make the difference between a good deal and a great deal.  I am happy to say that it is not as you see in the movies where someone wins by someone losing and there is never a reason to split the difference.  The RENE- Real Estate Negotiations Designation has helped save clients thousands of dollars when buying a home and negotiating the structure of the initial offer, after the home inspection as well as after the appraisal.  Be sure when selecting a professional that you are working with a professional that takes their career serious enough to ensure they continue their education.


Technology has created an upper hand for both sellers and buyers.  The day of agents placing a sign in the yard, putting the home in the MLS, and praying it sells are a thing of the past and may leave you with missed opportunities.

For buyers, having an agent fluent in technologically advanced marketing helps seek out homes that may have escaped traditional searches offering you a chance to see homes and place offers with a higher degree of acceptance.

For sellers, using these same systems to market your property means your home receives a comprehensive marketing plan as well as a digital marketing platform allowing you the opportunity to more attention drawn to your home leading to more lucrative offers, back up offers,  fewer BINSR repairs or upgrades, and a higher listing price to selling price ratio.
