how I can help YOU...

Building your own home is certainly always an option. Through my associations with contractors and builders in the area, I am able to make your life much easier during such an undertaking.   Presently, I am working in conjunction with Valley Builders, Construction & Design, Ltd. on the Maple Hill development - "a modern neighborhood with a traditional feel".   For more information, follow the link below:

Financing  your home in today's market can be a real headache.   Together we may be able to reduce the stress on you.   You may decide to pursue your financing options on your own.  Otherwise, together we can discuss the many other financing options open to you.

Investing  in property other than your own home can be an excellent way to build your portfolio.   Talk to me about your investment options in and around the Cottage Grove area.   You may be surprised by the variety of investment options available to you without "breaking your bank".

Relocating  can bring about a period of uncertainty. Through my vast resources of real estate professionals, I can smooth the way.   Just let me know where you are translocating to and I will make sure you have a qualified agent to meet you when you are ready to explore your home buying options.
