This week I had the pleasure (and total surprise) of being listed on RE/MAX Rankings September 2014 Issue in Top 50 Individuals-By Commissions. Out of 20+ agents in my office, Iwas one of 8 to be listed.

This is an honor that I could not have accomplished alone. There are many wonderful individuals I work with, that have contributed. I look forward to helping many more families find their perfect home! 



Whether your realtor is taking pictures of your home, or you are getting it ready for an open house, you will want your house to look its best. You should already have made a list of repairs that need to be made. If you have any questions about those repairs, consult with your realtor, who can likely point you in the right direction.

This is just a quick and easy list of things you can do to boost your home’s curb appeal. Curb appeal is the view of your house from the street. It is very often the first impression for potential buyers, whether they are viewing your house online or in person. You don’t have to rack up a hefty repair bill as many of these tips include simple cleaning and de-cluttering.

Exterior (front and back)

     Lawn/garden - mow, trim, weed, water, pick up.

     Pet areas - clean up, re-sod spots as needed.

     Extra vehicles -remove from curb view.

     Walks and driveway -sweep and remove stains.

     Doors and windows –repair or remove screens, glass and door hardware.

     Siding –repair, paint or clean as needed

     Fences –repair, paint or clean as needed.

     Sidewalks and driveway –repair or clean as needed.

     Lawn areas -remove any distracting decorations.

     Add a large plant, wreath or doormat at entrance.

     Add potted or hanging flowers to deck or porch.



To ensure the best photos or showing of your house can often be accomplished with nothing more than hot water, soap and good ol' fashioned elbow grease. The desire to show your home at its finest should encourage you to look at it with a critical eye. Take a step back and view each room for a minute. What is the first thing that catches your eye? Is it impressive or distracting? Does it sparkle, gleam and shine? Or does it show signs of distress?

For many families, the kitchen is the center of the home. Today we share a list of things you can do to better prepare your Kitchen and Basement/Garage.
