Real estate sales still needs the human perspective despite all the technological advances in recent years.

It is also a profession that demands full time agents. You cannot know the market selling one or two homes a year.
Your agent needs to have excellent problem solving skills, a network of trusted tradespeople, in depth local market knowledge, know how to interact with the other members of the MLS successfully, pay attention to detail and be pro active, and know the contracts.
In the current Seller's market, your Buyer agent needs to know how to present your offer so that it is accepted, carefully evaluating contingencies and financials to help you put your best foot forward to secure the home you want.

Seller's still need to present their property to attract buyers. Great photos are important as many buyers view homes online before they see them in person. You need an agent who can tell you what you need to correct before marketing your home so you don't have disappointment when a sale falls apart over inspection issues.
My business is largely based on personal referrals from current and past clients. After 25 years in the business, I know the local market, know the local regulations, know the other real estate professionals. 
My first career was in the Hotel industry working for Marriott Hotels. Working in full service hotels running rooms related departments of Front Office and Housekeeping including laundry, reservations, concierge, bellstand, airport transportation. I managed upwards of 300 employees and managers at my last hotel assignment. From there I joined the start up team of Fairfield Inns brand as Director of Room Operations. Responsibilities included developing operating procedures, equipment evaluation and purchase, site visits and oversight of the turnover of new construction to the operating team.
After moving to State College in 1993, I started my real estate career. I have excelled with the help of the great training at Marriott in customer service and systems. I have bought and sold many properties in the last 34 years, and understand firsthand the stress and challenge of moving. In fact my last move was the end of 2020.

I say - Never Again - but we will see what the next few years brings!

My expertise is in understanding the contracts we use in Pennsylvania, negotiating, ever changing market conditions and financing. I work with residential, commercial, multi unit investment, land sales and new construction. I have owned and managed commercial properties and was previously a co-owner of a real estate brokerage.
