2019 Exciting news!!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope 2019 is starting out, and will be, an amazing year for you and yours.

I am reaching out to you today to share some VERY exciting news. It has been wonderful to help so many families find homes, investment properties, save homes for those that needed it with my short sale and foreclosure knowledge and help others sell as they transition into something more comfortable for their changing lifestyle. I have been blessed by many of you referring me to your friends, family and colleagues. Thank you!

Life IS ever changing and because of the ever-changing nature of the real estate market, it’s imperative that my clients have the most up-to-date information available. My philosophy is that the market waits for nobody, and that’s why I pledge to go beyond the standard level of service even after your home has closed. I always want my clients to feel free, and comfortable, to contact me with questions, referrals for home repairs, or to just say hi!

With change in mind I am excited to announce that I have officially brought on an amazing, buyer’s specialist to assist me in providing the quality of service I want to give my clients and they deserve. Please help me in welcoming Britt Maltos to my team!

I am excited to partner with a Realtor who, like myself, is from Washington. I feel it gives us so much more knowledge of the neighborhoods we are helping families in. Britt grew up in Ballard and lives in Edmonds with her husband and kids. I grew up in Lynnwood and then the north Seattle area. My first apartment was in Ballard before moving to Redmond for many years and finally settling in the Everett/Snohomish area with my family.

I like to say we’re your local homegrown Real Estate team!

When you have Real Estate needs you want someone who knows the prospective area inside and out, someone who will not only find you the best property for your needs, but the best neighborhood as well. A team that can direct you to which loan product works best for you and knows of many that will save you money along the way.  A team that now gives CASH back to our local community heroes (firefighters, EMS, law enforcement, teachers, healthcare, and military) when they buy or sell a home with us. A team that is qualified to help seniors with downsizing or lifestyle changes and providing a senior discount (new)!

That’s where we come in: We can provide you with information that will inform your real estate decisions. So, rest assured that as long as you’re in the market, we are committed to be your neighborhood specialists and more.

Even if you are not considering buying or selling a home now, if any of your friends, family or colleagues express an interest and would appreciate the level of service we provide please, feel free, to give out our contact information. We would be happy to chat with them and promise to take great care of them.

Thank you, It is so rewarding to help families make their real estate dreams come true.

My Experience at the REMAX Convention and Children’s Miracle Network

Last month I attended the REMAX Convention in Las Vegas. WOW! What a great organization I am affiliated with. This was my first convention but I have no excuse for why, as I now will be a dedicated attendee. The motivation I found from other REMAX agents, the classes and just the vibe of the whole convention was pure adrenaline. We were asked what the biggest thing we walked away with and for me it was a turning point for expanding my business to include being part of the Children’s Miracle Network. With each buyer and seller I pledge to donate, in their name, a contribution to Seattle Children’s hospital. As a mom of three boys 2 out of 3 have used Children’s hospital services. My oldest has disabilities and when he was younger we were at Children’s many times but never a bad experience and they were always helpful, understanding and dedicated. My youngest broke his arm at age 2 and we were transported by ambulance down to Children’s where he had to have surgery as the break was at the growth plate. A very scary experience to say the least but we always felt he was in the best of hands.

When I was at the convention the little girl that I am pictured with below was the spokesperson for Children Miracle Network and shared her story. 10-year-old Belle Helton, who receives care at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital was diagnosed with a kidney disorder soon after birth. At age 5, her kidneys began to fail. Belle’s mother was a donor match, but after a full health exam, doctors discovered she had breast cancer. Fortunately, Belle’s father also was a match. Now, Belle and her mom, who is cancer-free, are both thriving. Since partnering with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in 1992, RE/MAX agents have raised more than $138 million for the charity’s 170 member hospitals in the U.S. and Canada. Donations help fund pediatric medical equipment and treatments, healthcare services and charitable care.

Now its my turn to contribute and I am honored to do so. Take a look at the video if you would like more information.

If you know of anyone that is wanting to buy or sell here in the Snohomish County or North King County area send them my way. Not only will I take great care of them but they will be helping too. I love referrals!
