The key to finding the right home for you really starts with listening…

  • Listening to your hopes and dreams about what you are looking for in a home and neighborhood
    • Not just size and amenities, but consciously thinking about how you will live in the space and what kind of space will nurture you and your lifestyle
    • You are not just buying a home, but also a community… what kind of community would you be excited to be a part of… not only the neighborhood amenities but also the people who live there
  • Finding a Realtor who listens… really listens to you 
    • Someone who listens to not only what you say but also to what you don't say… including your body language
    • Someone who listens beyond the facts to understand who you are
  • Listening to your body
    • We have more nerves in our gut than in our brains, and our bodies often know before our brains whether a home or neighborhood is right for us or not
    • Don't be afraid to listen to what your body is telling you… you will know what is right if you open yourself to really listen

I have been called a 'house whisperer' before. I am not quite sure what that means, but I think it has a lot to do with listening…
