ERA in the Smokies Realty & Rentals


As a REALTOR®, I specialize in East Tennessee and the areas around the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Douglas Lake.  You, my clients, are my focus.  I am here to guide you to your goal of either purchasing or selling property in as timely a manner as is at all possible.

For Buyers: Together, we will set up the criteria for what you want in our MLS system and discover what is available.  I will then set up a search, using that criteria, so the system can send you e-mails the minute something comes on the market matching that criteria or changes price.  It gives you instant information so you keep track of what is going on in the market matching your wants and needs.  If you are from out of the area and find a property that is of particular interest, I don’t mind going out and previewing a property for you.  I’ll give you my honest opinion about it so you can decide if you want to come in to see it before someone else snatches it out from under you.  If you intend to finance the purchase, it is preferable and wise to have a lender tell you what price you can qualify for and have them be ready to provide a pre-approval letter when we find a property on which you want to make an offer.

For Sellers:  Once you have made up your mind to sell, you need a listing agent that will help you decide on a selling price that not only will give you a fair return on the property, but will assist you in pricing the property at a price that will make that sale possible.  We can research fairly recent sales of similar properties to discover a possible selling price.  If there are no similar properties (comps), I will suggest you get an independent appraisal so we at least have something to show potential buyers as to the value of the property.

You'll find me easy to work with, non-threatening (I don't push), but hard working when you need me to be. I am a licensed Tennessee Realtor and have the experience necessary to handle any real estate venture in my specialty locales.  I look forward to working with you.
