THE DIFFERENCE IS MEASURABLE
When you work with my team at MORE REALTORS (Masters Of Real Estate) you get a highly accomplished, ethical, and competent St. Louis Realtor with more than 35 years’ experience, ranking in the top 2% of all Realtors in the USA. My expertise is being able to help you make wise decisions when it comes to selling or buying a home and isn’t that why you would hire a Realtor in the first place? My value lies in being an expert ON the market and where it’s headed at any given point in time. I put great emphasis on being highly educated in my industry with ever-evolving legal issues, codes, survey issues, inspections, appraisal problems, loan snafus, etc. The backing of my company MORE REALTORS has a collaborative atmosphere with decades of new construction experience, investment experience, plus the owners are both past Presidents of our Realtor Association and Board Members of MARIS MLS. We really are the MASTERS OF REAL ESTATE.
BUYING A HOUSE
Anyone can open a door but not all Realtors have the expertise in identifying a costly repair, a defect in the property, and identifying how to fix it, negotiate it or walk away. Some agents don’t even know the difference between a stone foundation and a poured concrete foundation. I have been an investor and rehabber in addition to working full-time as a Realtor since 1986. Let my mistakes be your wisdom. I promise to guide you as if you are family!
SELLING YOUR HOUSE
For many people the thought of getting your house ready for market is DAUNTING! You have questions like: Where do we start? What should we do? How much will we need to spend on updates and what is the ROI on that? Will we need to “bring it up to code”? I have helped 100’s of SELLERS just like you create a plan and timeline, giving you a list of reliable, competent contractors and other resources to facilitate the ease of making that happen including a complimentary 2-hour consult with a professional Interior Designer to rearrange furnishings/furniture & make suggestions to create the greatest mass appeal. During the transaction, we will take as much OFF your plate as possible and allow you to continue living life with as little stress as possible in your transition.
You inherited a house or moving your parents into a retirement/nursing facility. Or you haven’t been able to keep up with the house over the years and are unable to make any repairs to get it ready for market. Let me guide you into how to make the most of what you have to work with. Trust me, there is a buyer for every house, bar none. It doesn’t matter the condition. In any market at any time, there is a buyer for your house and I can find them.
St Louis is home to my family going back 3 generations of immigrants from Hungary, Germany, and Switzerland. After 3 years at Southeast Missouri University but graduating from the University of Missouri -St Louis I worked in the Financial sector for a few years. Growing restless I took an adventurous detour and worked on Clipper Cruise Line which ended in a promotion and a short stint at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY. I thought the hospitality industry would be my career but God had other plans — and His plans are always better. I then began working as an Assistant to a very successful Realtor in 1986 and eventually broke away and “did my own thing”, launching my real estate business in 1988. My hobbies are world-wide travel including scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef and Costa Rica, a 14-day bicycle tour of New Zealand’s south island, a 10-day bicycle tour of Italy, the thrill of jumping out of an airplane multiple times from 13,000 feet, close up encounters with animals on Safaris in Zimbabwe and Tanzania, and Bungee Jumping over the crocodile-infested Zambezi River near Victoria Falls at age 60! What’s next?? I spend my leisure time in Community Bible Study and helping teenagers grow in their knowledge of God’s Word; gardening (not for food lest I starve), dining out and live music with friends or exploring St Louis’s parks with my long-haired miniature dachshund Reagan.
