Let’s talk RESOURCES!

Let’s talk RESOURCES!

Being a self proclaimed “Resource Queen” is one of the many badges I wear with THE UTMOST honor. I firmly believe that for every problem there is a solution/resource out there. I also believe that everyone is deserving of home ownership regardless of their socioeconomic circumstances. However, as the ancient adage goes, ‘with great power comes great responsibility’.

This couldn’t have rang more true with the amazing buyers of this lovely listing. My clients being hard working, dedicated to the process and trusting me the whole way through made turning their dreams into reality a fulfilling challenge. After some failed attempts at home ownership with past realtors/programs they were able to find success with me! I knew from the very beginning that this was a responsibility bestowed upon me that I could accept with confidence. I constantly reassured my buyers that they were in fact worthy of their goal, home ownership.

Being well versed in first time home buyers programs, down payment assistance programs and negotiation techniques such as seller paid closing costs I was able to guide my client to the path of home ownership with the help of one of my INCREDIBLE preferred lenders.

Thanks for trusting me and never giving up, Deskin Family!

You all are a testament to what can happen when you have a bit of faith, a lot of patience and the right team working for you.

It was a pleasure & a privilege.
