As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home

Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

"Risa was awesome. It was so easy to work with her and she was always available to answer questions. It was our first time selling our home and it was nice having someone who knows the area well, explain processes, and help sell our home so quickly. Despite a few unexpected hurdles the whole process was pretty stress free and easy. Thank you for everything you did for us! "

"Very professional and knowledgeable. Very easy to work wth given we were out of the country from the time we selected Risa through the sale and close of escrow. Would not hesitate to use her services again and refer her to friends and family. "

" This was the second time my wife and I worked with Risa. She is excellent at her job. Full disclosure, I went to high school with Risa. But I asked to review her. That aside, Risa listened to us about the type of property we wanted and showed us a range of options BUT not ones that were "why don't you spend much more?" or that were absurd. So we were able to see the price range and assess the quality of property quite well. In addition, she stayed on top of details with inspections, questions with the seller's claims versus reality, counter offers and more all the way through the deals. When it came time for repairs, she helped make sure they were done correctly and solved issues as they arose. In addition, when we needed a view on what was important or not, Risa was clear about what she thought and why. It was not a "don't worry about it, buy the property" response. It was a thoughtful explanation and discussion as needed. She is a true professional. "
