About

Over 90% of the homes I sell are inside the city limits of Lawrence. I leverage this deep experience of hundreds of Lawrence sales transactions spanning a decade to benefit my clients. By focusing my time, effort and marketing on selling homes and serving buyers right here in Lawrence, I maintain a deep knowledge of local market trends, new listings and market inventory which provides my clients an edge. Additionally, I maintain access to both the Lawrence Multiple Listing Service (Lawrence MLS) and Heartland Multiple Listing Service (Heartland MLS), all of which uniquely positions me to provide a comprehensive set of services, experience and knowledge for my clients unmatched by other agents serving the Lawrence area. I am considered a leader by my peers when it comes to the implementation of new technology. Through technology like DocuSign, my clients save time, improve communication and enjoy added convenience throughout the sales transaction. Some of these services include: Electronic Documents Electronic Document Signing via E-Mail/Internet Automatic Listing Alerts via E-Mail I maintain the following professional designations and relationships: CRS (Certified Residential Specialist) ABR (Acredited Buyers Representative) GRI (Graduate Realtor Institute) Member of National Association of REALTORS Member of Kansas Association of REALTORS Member of Lawrence Board of REALTORS I also enjoy a steady flow of business from client referrals, my website SearchLawrence.com and through brand and name recognition in the Lawrence area. This steady and predictable flow of business allows me to focus all of my time on serving my clients, marketing my listings and assisting buyers instead of wasting my time marketing myself and searching for new business. This means my clients can feel assured I'll have quality time for them when they need me to be there. Buyers know I can afford to be honest and patient as we work together to find a perfect home that meet their needs. Sellers know I have the cash flow required to launch a deep and wide marketing campaign for their properties, as well as the time required to follow up on buyer leads. Finally, I was honored as the top agent at Realty Executives, Hedges Real Estate, Inc. and ranked #10 in the Mid-America region by Realty Executives International, Inc. in 2010. I earned these accolades one client at a time during difficult market conditions and I remain dedicated to continuing this tradition of service, honesty and dedication for all of my clients into the future.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does a real estate agent do?

Real estate agents help their clients buy, sell, and rent commercial and residential properties. There are also real estate agents that sell industrial and agricultural real estate, but the majority sell residential properties. To become a real estate agent, you must be at least 18 years old, successfully complete real estate courses, and pass a real estate exam. Be sure to check for any required licensing, too. Often real estate agents will earn 5 percent to 6 percent of the total home sale price for their work in representing their client. Typically this commission is split equally between the buyer’s agent and the seller’s agent. Here is an overview of what a real estate agent does, according to the United States Department of Labor:

  • Represent clients who are looking to buy, sell and rent properties.
  • Stay knowledgeable about regional real estate prices, mortgages, market conditions and related information, and advise clients accordingly.  
  • Determine competitive market prices by comparing properties.
  • Create and publicize lists of properties for sale, including details such as location and features.
  • Market properties through advertisements, open houses and listing services.
  • Show prospective buyers or renters properties.
  • Present purchase offers to sellers for consideration.
  • Mediate negotiations between buyer and seller.
  • Ensure that all terms of purchase contracts are met.
  • Prepare documents, such as loyalty contracts, purchase agreements and deeds.

What's the difference between a real estate broker and an agent?

Real estate agents and real estate brokers both help clients buy, sell, and rent residential and commercial properties. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, real estate brokers are licensed to manage their own real estate businesses. Real estate agents cannot have their own real estate office and must work under a broker. Real estate brokers often have real estate firms and employ real estate agents. Those real estate agents may be employees of the firm, or they may work on contract and earn part of any commission they bring into the firm.

If you are a homeowner ready to sell or a buyer in the market for a new home, either a real estate broker or a real estate agent can help you achieve your goal. What is more important than their title is their track record and client success stories. When interviewing real estate agents or brokers to help you buy or sell a home, ask about their recent sales history as compared with the original listing prices. If you’re selling a home, ask how they would market your home and what price they would list it at. Whether you hire an agent or broker, you want a professional who will have your best interests at heart.

What should you look for in a real estate agent?

When you’re hiring a real estate agent you want to find a qualified pro who can negotiate the best deal for your home — whether you’re buying or selling. Reading reviews will help you weed out obvious bad operators; you want to work with someone who treats their clients with fairness and respect. That said, you also want someone who can play hardball and maximize your real estate deal. Ask for references from recent clients, and be sure to call them.

Experts encourage you to interview more than one prospective real estate agent before hiring. A home sale or home purchase is a big deal — sometimes the biggest deal in a person’s life — and you want to find an agent who will work hard for you. In today’s market, having a real estate agent who is social media savvy and has an attractive online presence is critical. Ask the agent how they plan to market your house. Review their listings, and ask yourself if they have professional photos with homes that are professionally staged. If the answer is no, they might not have the marketing savvy you’re looking for. Ask what price they would list your house at and why. Pay attention to how they communicate with you during your initial interviewing phase. Are they too busy to respond for several days? Are they clear and helpful? This information is a clue to how they’ll engage during the entire process.

What do real estate agents charge?

Real estate agents typically don’t charge a set rate to their clients, but rather earn a commission on the price of the final home sale. In traditional real estate, there is a buyer’s agent and a seller’s agent. The two agents receive 5 percent to 6 percent of the final home sale price and split it evenly, meaning they each earn roughly 2.5 percent to 3 percent of the total home sale. If you are a home seller, you may have fees associated with the sale that are above and beyond the commission the agents earn. The real estate agent may have you pay marketing fees, MLS fees, early cancellation fees, or more. Always ask pricing details before signing a contract so you clearly understand your financial obligations. Here are some of the average (and common) costs that can arise when selling a home:

  • Home inspection: $200-$350 or more, depending on region.
  • Home appraisal: $250-$400 or more, depending on region.
  • Professional real estate photography: $275-$550 or more, depending on photographer, square footage of house, and special requests like sunset shots.
  • Closing costs: Often split between the seller and buyer. An average range for the buyer to pay is between 3 percent and 4 percent, with the seller paying a lower fee at 1 percent to 3 percent of the home’s price.
