My role in tales looking after all levels of customer service for the owner / tenants to dealing directly with prospects and tenants, saving our investment clients (Owners) time and worry over marketing their rentals, collecting rent, handling maintenance and repair issues, responding to tenant complaints, and even pursuing evictions. Good customer service means having thorough knowledge of your inventory, experience with your products, and being able to help customers make the best choices for them.

I take pride in my role as a property agent because my heart is about people. This role is all about people.

My passion is having a spirit of excellent in everything I do in work and personal life. Who I am as a person shows in my walk by the way I treat people to the way I am in private. Having a positive mind set and a spirit of excellent means everything I put my heart and mind to I can achieve.
