So many Realtors to choose from... Over 54188 agents and 11324 brokers listed in HAR (Houston Association of Realtors), and growing every day. Real Estate schools keep pumping out new agents, and the old ones never seem to fully retire. How to pick one to represent you? Confusing, to say the least. You may have an old friend who just got their license, church friend, family friend of your mothers, or even a friend of a friend. These days most are part time. Well, not all agents are created equal. Becoming an agent requires taking a few classes and passing a test. Actually being a great, full time, agent takes a lot more. Extra classes, certifications, many, many transations completed, through knowledge of RE contracts, and so much more. Without giving away all my secrets, here are just a few of the Debbie Differences.
Just a few of the things I do on every transation. I'm always looking out for my clients. Trying to avoid pitfalls and make sure everything goes perfectly. Choosing me means choosing a FULL TIME agent with over 20 years of experience that has always given my clients "facts, not fluff".
Waiting to buy?
CCISD Median Price
I'm no investment expert, and don't pretend to give investment advise, but putting your money into real estate in the CCISD appears to be a good idea. At least you get to live in your real estate investment, and it's something that you can touch and feel. As you can see from the charts above, the market in Clear Lake, and Houston in general, is booming. Waiting might cost you. Not to mention rising interest rates.
Clear Lake Real Estate for December roared. Overall "Normal Seller's Market" in CCISD by only .1 point. Very close to an Extreme Sellers Market. 2015 has continued with much higher prices overall and reduced inventory. Simply, there aren’t enough homes on the market in some price bands. Median Prices have risen so much in 2015 that I've had to add more rows to my pricing charts. (Market Trend graphs) Median price for a home in CCISD is from $10k-$40K higher than last year, and last year was great. We’re into a bidding situation on market ready homes below $300K. If you need to sell your home, Call me to get the best service and price for your home. Right now is the perfect time to have your home on the market. If your home is priced above $400K, it needs to stand above the rest in market ready condition. I can help. Be sure to visit my Market Trend page to learn much more about the state of the real estate market in Clear Lake. Clear Lake Real Estate continued to increase in price and stay in low inventory. Good news for sellers, but a very tough market to buy in. The 2015 market is steam rolling price levels. The train is leaving the station. All aboard?

Full Service Listing:
All of my listings have either sold or leased in the tough market years of 2008,
2009, and 2010. Put my 20 years of experience to
work for you. Selling in the current "Seller's Market" may appear easy, but pitfalls abound.
Too many homeowners want to be the "Realtor" and try to
direct the sale of their home. They usually hire someone
who tells them what they WANT to hear, not what they
NEED to hear. Sorry, but that's not me. As a seller you
need to have the facts, not fluff. I'll start you off in
the right direction with the best chance of actually
selling your home, and not just listing it.
Call or email me today. I'll analyze your home, do some
comparable's, and give you the facts, not fluff. At least
you'll know where you stand. Then we can both decide if
we want to work with each other. I walk away from 2 out
of 3 listing appointments. If you're not ready to accept
the facts of the market, prepare your home for sale, and
work with me to sell your home, then we can both not
waste any more time. Remember, I'm going to tell you
what you NEED to hear.
Flat Fee Service:
For a limited time, I’m offering a Flat Fee Listing service for selected price range properties located within CCISD. Yes, I’ve offered a flat fee service before, but only for low equity properties.
Unlike others, my Flat Fee service is not a limited services listing. It’s a full service listing with “Rules, Limitations and Boundaries” that will be fully explained with a written addendum shared at the listing interview.
My Flat Fee service is your opportunity to get a first class, full service listing, for less. A lot less. Yes, I’m offering my 21 years of Clear Lake Real Estate premium service, 5 Star HAR rating, multiple certification services, at a discount. This is a limited time offering. We have far too little inventory in CCISD. Especially in some price bands. This is my personal effort to add available properties in those price ranges by lowering fees to sellers.
My flat fees vary for different price ranges.

Expired or Terminated Listings
I specialize in selling homes others can’t.
Rather than typical marketing, I’ve developed an
in-depth analysis of why homes that were on the market
didn’t sell. Sometimes I have to tell
homeowners things that they don’t want to hear, but need
to. Every home I listed in 2010,
2009 & 2008,
all difficult years,
sold or leased. No expired listings!
It’s not magic, it’s just my years of experience selling hard to sell
expired listings. I know what it takes
to sell your home. If you want an honest
evaluation of why your home didn’t sell, call or email
me. I can help.
Let me show you how win the bid, and conquer multiple offers.
Understanding the current market,
and how it affects the price range of homes that are of
interest to you, are more important than ever.
I can save you so much time wasted by making offers that
have zero chance of being accepted, and looking at homes
that really don't meet your criteria.
