With spring time upon us … the home buying season will be in full swing within the next few weeks … there is a lot more to buying a home than just looking at property on the Internet. You need a smart and savvy real estate agent to guide you through the process.

Many new home buyers have a lot of questions and need reliable information so they can make decisions that are right for them.

Home sellers need an experienced agent to price their property to sell in the least amount of time for the most amount of money.

I have been serving Long Beach and Lakewood sellers and buyers for over 23 years … if you need help getting started … just give me a call. If you want to get started I invite you to visit my websites.

If you want to buy a home you can get started on your computer by visiting where you can search the MLS database for properties … you can save your favorites and leave messages if you have questions about a certain property.
