Why use a professional?

Ethics is not just a word to throw around like a frisbee. True professionals are ethical, they take their role in society very seriously. For me personally, I am dedicated and strive daily to do the best job I can for the clients I represent. Thankfully, I work somewhere that I am proud of the people I work with. Every time we have a meeting together, the focus is not about “sales.” We often are focused on bettering ourselves and the services we provide. Our primary goal (least in the office I am in have real discussions and goal setting in the area of taking care of our clients.

These are serious times no doubt. Never has need for Joe Q consumer to have ethical real estate professionals to choose from. Correctly choosing who you can trust and confide in is paramount today. Sadly, there are some foxes in the hen houses right now. It angers me to know that while people are needing sound and real advice right now, are getting scammed right and left. Isn’t that how we got in this mess in the first place? This needs to stop, and stop right now!

If you get a call from someone out of the blue offering to “fix” all your problems, BEWARE! Then be smart and call your Realtor, we are here to assist you. Your Realtor is not a door opener, they are trained skilled professionals with a vast amount of information. You feel lost alone in todays market, give me a call and I will do what I can to help. If I can’t, I know one office full of people that can and will. Call me, 206-963-4307!

Take a moment and read the attached story. Leave a comment and tell me what you think. Lets work together and kick these foxes to the curb!


Foreclosure scam artists rarely face jail time – Mortgage Mess- “LAS VEGAS – They call themselves loan modification consultants, negotiators or specialists. Some are legitimate, but many are simple con artists looking for desperate marks facing foreclosure amid the wreckage of the nation’s housing market.

It’s a good business, too, since in most states, there’s not much of a chance they’ll ever end up before a judge facing any time in jail.”
