Welcome to my website! I have been a full time real estate professional in the Corvallis, Oregon area and Willamette Valley for over 32 years. I specialize in residential housing. After all my years experience in real estate it still is an emotional high for me to help buyers find just the right home! If you are searching for Corvallis/Willamette Valley area housing let me put my 32+ years of experience and contacts to work for you. On this site you will find a Property Search for ALL area listings, not just my listings or those of RE/MAX Integrity. Take some time to read Client Reviews to see how they felt about working with me. You can review; right here, Buyer Advisory Documents, a complete description of my Residential Marketing Plan and details on my methods of dealing with both buyers and sellers.
Speaking of how I work with buyers and sellers I would like to introduce you to my two main overview/orientation guides designed to go over the process of either buying or selling property. The Sellers Book and the Buyers book were both compiled by me to give you a good overview of things you need to know before you embark on the buying or selling process. I will go over the contents of each below.
Whether you have been through the selling process recently or not for many years you should find my Sellers Book very helpful. Laws and procedures change all the time. This manual, which I present to potential sellers at the time of doing a market analysis on their home, is full of what to expect from the process.
Between this manual and the State Designed “Buyer’s Advisory”: any buyer, first time, or experienced gets a head start on what to expect. No matter when you last bought a home the process is different this time around. Every year laws and forms change. Be sure that you are well informed before you make one of the largest investment decisions of your life!
Most of my clients have found that these introductions to the process help them to understand better what lies ahead. Even though no two transactions are the same having a foundation in the basics makes navigating the maze a more familiar task once you are in the middle of purchasing or selling a home.
