HOLISTIC REAL ESTATE: A VERY NEW AND ANCIENT IDEA
am a Holistic Realtor serving Santa Barbara County. What is a
"Holistic Realtor"? One who recognizes the importance
of the WHOLE person, within the larger context of environment,
family & culture. I am here to help you. I will always be
communicative, honest and straightforward. I will make this fun,
easy & profitable for all of us!
INTEGRATED APPROACH TO REAL ESTATE: BODY/MIND/SOUL
Buying or selling a home is typically very stressful for some
people, but it doesn't have to be! I will help alleviate physical
stress by doing as much of the work as possible. When I list your
home for sale, I take care of all showings, open houses, and the
like: you never have to be present. I'll work around your schedule
& always protect your home: physically and energetically.
I can also arrange for highly qualified & licensed painters,
handypeople, gardeners, movers, pest inspectors, etc. if needed.
Every offer will be presented to you immediately, and you will
be consistently updated on marketing efforts & results.
For buyers searching for their dream home: I will research properties
in the area that you like -- we can tour as few or as many as
you desire. I utilize all the Multiple Listing Services in the
area, and constantly communicate with other agents to learn of
"pocket listings" and opportunities that are not shared
with the general public. I can email photo tours to you, and we
can visit the homes you most want to see when it is convenient
for you. Also, whenever possible, I'll preview homes before showing
them to you to say you time and effort. I attend Broker's Tours
regularly so I keep up with the ever changing inventory.
I'll help you in the area of "mind" by teaching you
as much as you are interested in learning about the home buying
and selling process. I'll take the lead on getting things done,
and explain it all: those complex forms you sign, all the inspections
that will protect you and ensure you are getting the quality you
desire, all the collaboration with loan agents and escrow agents.
I have been teaching college & workshops successfully for
15 years, and I am an expert in presenting information understandably
I will tend to "Soul" -- your and mine, by always maintaining
the highest level of integrity, honesty & compassion. It is
often said that buying a home is one of the most important actions
of a person's life. I believe it should therefore also be one
of the most enjoyable, hope-full and meaningful experiences of
one's life, and we'll work to these ends for you. For those of
you who desire extra guidance, we can utilize soul-full tools
like Feng Shui, dreamwork & imaginal
play to help you figure out what kind of home would best shelter
all the different parts of you, bring you peace of mind, body
