About Desiree

My Approach

Real estate is high stakes, emotionally and financially. It demands business and emotional intelligence. My goal is to help my clients net the most money while also nurturing their home dreams and the community that we share. Are we a good match? Here’s what I’m about:

1. Clients for life. I serve my clients’ long-term interests. Often this begins with buying or selling, but I help beyond (or in-between) buying and selling. I inform remodeling and refinancing choices, price opinions, and other expertise. Maybe buying or selling is not right for you now. Agents with a focus on short-term commission cannot give that kind of advice. I am in it for the long term; what’s best for my clients is ultimately best for me.

2. The right agent matters. Home values exist within a range and then a million details converge (supply and demand, staging, marketing, negotiating, etc.) to determine the final value. I help you the achieve the best results within the range, typically netting more than the cost of the commission.

3. Flawless professional execution. Satisfied clients. Transactions can be complicated, fast-paced, and overwhelming. My business is built on understanding my clients’ needs, educating them about the process, and keeping them informed. My clients rely on these elements every day:

  • Market expertise. The avalanche of publicly available data makes experience more important than ever. Market value varies due to subtleties: neighborhood pockets, floor plans, and the distinct perspectives of buyers and sellers. My experience will benefit your unique situation.
  • Communication. The right amount of information is key. Our clients receive weekly reports as well as ongoing updates based on their particular needs. Clients that are not in active transactions receive semi-annual updates as well.
  • Problem solving & teamwork. I get things done quickly and set clear expectations. My team of skilled pros can solve every real estate problem. Steep slope? Leaky roof? Old sewer line? Cantankerous neighbor? No problem is insurmountable if we tackle it head on.

4. Win-win negotiation. 
Our culture mythologizes “hard ball” negotiators who crush their “opponents.” In my experience this approach kills deals. An aggressive early “win” often erodes trust later. I establish credibility by listening carefully, objectively weighing evidence, and employing creativity. I strive to understand the needs of both sides to capitalize on win/win opportunities.
