I am an Realtor(R) working with local Sellers & Buyers, and with clients in need of help with Relocation or Foreclosures. I'm highly skilled at promoting listings through our unique & proven marketing systems with online marketing, social media, internet tools, and good old fashioned door knocking / open houses, utilizing the full power of the MLS.
When it comes to selling or buying a home, I believe in being your personal agent, and guiding you through every step of the process. I don't believe the process should be hurried, but I also know that if we don't move quickly enough, we might miss our window of opportunity.
I place a lot of importance on taking the time to interview & pre-qualify my Buyers, so their lender and I can accurately determine their purchase power before we start looking online or step foot in the car. I am careful to coordinate home tours & showing appointments with efficiency, always keeping your time in mind. I insist on comparing your desired property with similar properties that have recently sold to determine its competitive market price (CMA)... all in an effort to stay in tune with fair market values and protect your money in the end. This provides assurance that the list price, offer price and APPRAISAL all are in line before allowing the client to determine their offer price.
I am a strong negotiator who accurately handles every detail of the transaction as your fierce representative and voice - preparing all offers and counters, agency contracts, disclosures, purchase agreements, addenda and reports. I guide my clients through the intimidating and sometimes scary home inspection period and work closely with escrow companies, lenders, home inspector and pest control to ensure all terms and conditions are met before closing dates because again, nobody likes upsetting surprises after they get the keys.
It's a tough buyer's market in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area right now
"Leo's attention to detail, along with his "can do" attitude, made every step of buying our home enjoyable. He practically held our hand through every step of the process, and was always available for our questions and concerns. I can't imagine working with another agent ever again!"
