Not Your Typical Realtor. Not Your Typical Realtor Bio.
You loathe typical real estate agent bios. Don’t worry, I do too. They’re like cardboard — stiff, bland, and identical to every other bio out there. Instead of boasting ad nauseum about awards and accomplishments you’re not interested in, I’m taking the novel approach of actually giving you what you want — real answers to questions you’re probably wondering right now.
And if by chance one of your questions is not answered, just contact me and I will be happy to answer it for you.
Will you return my calls, texts and emails?
Yes. Without question. I realize this is one of the major frustrations the general public has with dealing with agents. I get dozens of calls, texts and emails daily, and I work hard to reply as quickly as possible. If I don’t get back to you right away most likely I am busy with another client. But I assure you that as soon as I have a free moment, I will be in touch.
I’ve met many Realtors who are jerks. Are you?
Depends on who you ask. If you ask certain agents who have stood between my clients and their real estate goals, they’ll probably say “yes”. A handful of people think I leave golden footprints in the sand. Those are the two extremes, and most people’s opinion falls somewhere in the middle. Here’s what I can tell you: I’m honest and candid. I take pride in being approachable and friendly. And if you need a quick real estate brain, or a strong dose of honesty, you’re in the right place. Loyalty to family, clients, and friends is one of my core values. Want to really find out if I’m a jerk? Mess with one of those people.
Do you have experience doing exactly what I need?
Until you tell me what you need, there is no way of knowing. So give me a ring or shoot me a text and let’s talk about how I can help you. If I can’t help you, I will tell you. While I may be in the “sales” business, doing right by people and really helping them is what matters most to me.
What kind of work are you really good at?
On a personal level, I’m pretty good at cooking (I make a mean picadillo Cubano!), I am a pretty good photographer, and great with technology.
On a professional level, here are the skill-sets that I’ve developed over the years:
- Listening. Unfortunately, it’s a lost art these days, but I have two ears for you!
- Detail oriented
- Extremely proficient with technology
- Astute negotiator
- Problem solving
- Critical thinking
- Fluent in 5 languages : English, Portuguese, Spanish, French and Italian
Why should I hire you to help me buy or sell property in and around Oakland Park?
I have lived in Oakland Park for 31 years alone and another 6 I lived in Fort Lauderdale. That is a total of 37 years of local knowledge and experience. On top of that I am constantly studying our market, and specific neighborhoods so I know exactly what is going on with the real estate market in our area.
I will admit, I do not and cannot know everything, but you can bet your bottom dollar that if I don’t know something I will find out for you. After all I was a professional researcher and teacher before I became a Realtor®, finding things out is one of my strong suits.
What do clients think of you?
My clients are better suited to answer this for you. Here’s what some of them have said:
