FishHawk Real Estate COVID-19 Safeguards and Update

It is certainly a heartbreaking time for all of us. My prayers go out to everyone that has been directly affected by this pandemic.  We are all dealing with unprecedented times that call on us to sacrifice and live our lives differently.  It’s not easy breaking our old patterns, but we must.  We will get through this together.

In the meantime, we have to work differently, be creative, and most importantly keep people safe. The business of real estate is secondary to the health and safety of everyone. Real estate is considered an essential business as it is impossible to shelter in place without a shelter. The real estate market has been disrupted, but sales are still getting executed and closed.

If you are in the market to buy or sell a home I can help and have instituted some guidelines to help protect both my buyers and sellers.

  • If you are in the “just-looking” but not serious about buying a home stage, please hold off a little while on seeing homes in person
  • No person with cold or flu-like symptoms shall be permitted to view homes in person
  • Buyers must have a pre-qualification letter or proof of funds prior to home showings
  • No more than two individuals and a real estate agent are permitted to tour a home at a time
  • Please do not touch anything during a showing. This includes light switches, cabinet doors, drawers, doorknobs, sinks, toilets, furniture, etc.
  • All parties must maintain a minimum distance of 6 feet between each other while viewing a home
  • Use of facemasks is required while viewing a home
  • I am happy to do video walkthroughs of homes for any of my buyers
  • All of my listings get the 3D Interactive Virtual Tour. These walkthroughs allow potential buyers to get a good idea of the home without stepping foot in the home
  • Some closings can be done via e-signature or drive up. If a title office visit is required, the office will be limited to just the parties signing the documents

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding the COVID-19 safeguards. Stay safe!

  • New Construction Homes: Our Multiple Listing Service (MLS) does a great job with resale homes and homes that builders upload to the MLS as inventory homes for sale. However, it does not capture builder models that the builder does not have in progress. To assist with that search, feel free to click over to my New Construction Search Page. It will help you search for new construction homes throughout the Tampa area.

Ways I Can Help Buyers and Sellers

My real estate experience dates back to the late 1980s. First, as a real estate investor and now as a licensed real estate broker. I am a firm believer that knowledge is the foundation of success. I do my best to educate my buyers and sellers, so they are as prepared as possible for this fun, exciting, complicated, and sometimes stressful journey.

Buyers and sellers experience tremendous success and rave about my service because my approach is very different from what you usually find in the real estate industry.

  1. Real estate can be complicated and confusing. I use a simple approach to both the buying and selling process. I speak in plain language and break down each aspect of the process into manageable, understandable parts.
  2. I stay current on real estate trends and the marketplace. Being up to the minute on the trends and market place allows my buyers and sellers to purchase for the best price or sell for top-dollar.
  3. You receive personal service from me. I do not hand you off to other agents or unlicensed assistants. When you hire me to represent you as your REALTOR®, I serve as your REALTOR® throughout the entire process (and beyond).
  4. When selling a home, I will assist with choosing the perfect list price. Pricing a home is a crucial component to getting a home sold for top dollar. It is part art and part science. I have a lot to say about this subject. If you are interested, let’s schedule a time to discuss it in detail.
  5. I am your local real estate expert. I have lived in FishHawk Ranch since 2005 and consistently rank as one of the top-selling individual agents in the entire area.
  6. Buying or selling a home requires multiple forms, disclosures, and other documents. I have a system set up, and I will help you with these documents so you can get the best deal, avoid delays, and avoid possible costly mistakes.
  7. Negotiating the best deal requires training, experience, market knowledge, and an understanding of your needs and ultimate goals. I will listen to your needs and goals, formulate a negotiating plan with you, and use my expertise to get you the best possible price!
