I have had a lifetime of first hand experience with the military life. I was an army brat as my father was a Lieutenant Colonel for the US Army and finally retired after 32 years.
After my father retired from the US Army he had this vision to start a Veterans Real Estate Company so that he could help military families purchase homes of their own using their military benefits. I joined my fathers company in February 2004 so I could continue his legacy. My husband and I purchased VRS in June 2010 and my dad was able to retire and pursue a life on the road in his RV.
There are several qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional. Integrity, community and market knowledge, communication, effective negotiation skills and having a great team of professionals to make the transaction a quick and positive experience for the whole family.
With that said, in my experience as a VA Real Estate professional the way I provide the very best service is putting your needs first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.
My “client first” philosophy has always been my approach to running a successful business and it requires me to continually improve my skills by always searching for additional knowledge and continuing education. In addition, I’ve found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I’ve always done, only much quicker and efficient.
