I have 40 years of being in the HOME business.
I have a background in construction and selling homes.
I enjoy helping my sellers prepare their home for sale, and helping buyers finding their dream home.
I bring many years of knowledge, local connections, integrity, and my strong work ethic to the table for all my clients.
I have a long family history of being in the real estate and home building industry.
My Grandfather was a real estate developer in San Diego and my father was a successful salesman that taught me the importance of outstanding customer service.
I realized at age 20 that I wanted to be in the Real Estate business. I obtained my real estate license and began selling properties throughout Santa Cruz County. At age 21 I obtained my bachelor’s degree in business with a minor in Real Estate from San Jose State.
That same year, 1979 I married home builder Steve Hansmann and we built our first home.
2018-2019 President's Club Champion
2017-2019 Voted Favorite Realtor on the Westside on Nextdoor Website
I bring all this experience of home building and home selling to the table to assist you with your selling and buying needs.
I will put together a detailed marketing plan for your home.
We will work together to feature the best aspects of your home.
I have strong relationships with quality sub-contractors who can come in and help prepare the home for sale. I have training in interior design and have a good eye for color and style. I work with paint experts and professional stagers to show off the home's best attributes and get you the highest possible price.
We will market locally and use state of the art marketing technology that is far-reaching on the internet. We will use Virtual Tour Videos and 3D Matter Port, so potential buyers can see your home online. I will make sure your home is marketed to any potential buyers.
Once we receive offers, I will negotiate to get you the “highest possible price” for your home. Then I will handle all aspects of the sale through escrow.
I have valuable knowledge about the local market conditions, and I know home values. I am a good listener and will listen to your desires and help you decide what is most important to you. We will find just the right neighborhood and home for you.
I am very detailed in preparing offers, and I am a skilled negotiator. My buyers get the homes they want!
I will oversee your entire transaction from start to finish through escrow.
With my many years of experience and calm and confident demeanor, I will get the job done for you.
