If you are reading my Bio right now because you are searching for a Certified Probate Realtor®, I would like to say how deeply sorry I am for your loss. The loss of a loved one is emotionally draining in and of itself. But to have to mourn that loss and deal with the unfinished affairs of your loved one is very overwhelming and I am committed to help with the process every step of the way.
What sets me apart as a real estate agent is my passion, both for real estate and helping clients through difficult transitions. I am at an age where my generation is having to have the difficult conversations with aging parents/relatives to make sure their affairs are in order. I have also had friends & clients who have loved ones fall to an untimely passing and simply thought they had more time to get their affairs in order. Whatever the case, after fielding questions from friends & clients, I pursed my certification as a Certified Probate Real Estate Specialist (CPRES) to best advise my clients on how the process works and if discussed early enough, how to avoid probate all together.
As our elderly parents and/or relatives get older, unfortunately, sometimes they are too private to discuss the details of their assets and they think they are all squared away with just a Will in place. If this is your situation and you have been assigned the role of the Personal Representative (PR), and liquidation of the estate needs to happen, here’s how I can help:
☑️ Provide a PCMA (Probate Comparable Marketing Analysis) to assess property value
☑️ Review Probate Timeline
☑️ Estate sale coordination
☑️ Trash removal
☑️ Deferred maintenance repairs / New paint
☑️ Deep clean interior
☑️ Cleaning of windows & screens
☑️ Staging of the home
☑️ Landscape clean up
☑️ List the home for sale
☑️ Court appearances
My clientele concentration and recent transactions have been in north county San Diego but I am able to represent clients throughout the county. Prior to selling real estate, I worked as a real estate appraiser and as a mortgage loan officer. My combined experience in real estate is going on 19 years, the last 7 of them being a full time Realtor®.
My business approach working with my clients having to deal with the courts in a probate situation is to give them extraordinary, compassionate service that goes above and beyond a typical client/agent relationship. Preparing the home to sell is usually very overwhelming, and I am there every step of the way. I want my clients experience to be smooth and “less painful” from beginning to end.
