About Us | CENTURY 21

About Us < >

Most real estate agents work alone, performing the dozens of tasks required to complete a transaction.  I have adopted this Group concept and my team now consists of seven key players.  My group is comprised of ONLY licensed Realtors in order to better serve you.   I am the group leader and in constant communication with my staff.  I spend most of my time doing top priority activities, such as meeting with sellers to list property, showing prospective buyers houses, negotiating contracts, prospecting for business, and solving problems.  All other tasks are delegated to my specialized team member, but PLEASE remember, you can always call me directly!

  Experience Is Not Expensive...It's Priceless!
