Exceptional Individualized Service is my credo.
To deliver on that promise has meant an on-going commitment to education throughout my career coupled with a driving sense of personal responsibility. I’ve received specialized training in country property issues, buyer representation, handling foreclosure properties, working with seniors, green building, and am a National Association of Realtor certified Real Estate Negotiation Expert. All much beyond what is required by the State of California to simply maintain an agent or broker’s license or to conduct business.
ASK Realty is an Independent Brokerage and a Green Business.
I began my career as a real estate agent working with a locally owned, highly regarded brokerage, Frank Howard Allen — a model of professionalism and ethical practice. However, after 10 years with them, I became dissatisfied with the inflexible operational policies of such a large office and began preparing for the California Real Estate Brokers exam. In 2006 I received my broker’s license — allowing me to set up an independent office and to establish my own operational procedures. I work from my home, which has been energy retrofitted to reduce my carbon footprint and which allows me to conserve the resources that would be required to light, heat, cool, furnish, or commute to and from a separate workplace.
Independence and low overhead operations allow me to customize seller commissions…
…based on a property’s unique selling proposition — rather than relying on a standardized corporate rate set by someone else.
