Why I’m a Steel Horse Realtor & Company Realtor

I aligned myself with Steel Horse Realtor & Company almost by accident. A lender friend of mine knew I desperately needed a change of pace in our industry. I needed to align myself with a company who has the same core values that I do. I was contemplating my next step.

My friend kept telling me, "man, you've gotta meet my friend Mikey."

I was actually hesitant to meet Mikey - but my friend was sure this could be a great fit for me. My friend knew a bit of my background and talked with Mikey - who just so happens to be my broker now.

What is really nice about working as a realtor with Steel Horse is that family comes first and every one of us in the brokerage has a military member or veteran in our family.

My Dad served in the Army for 20 years. My husband and I have two sons, one of whom is currently serving in the Marine Corps. We have veterans working in the Steel Horse Realtor & Company office as well.

So why Steel Horse? The answer is simple: We work to bring the community together through simple acts of kindness and genuine concern for others - all while being the best agents!

Preferred Partner: Terrence Perfect, the “Mortgage Marine”

I have a preferred lending relationship with Terry Perfect, the "Mortgage Marine" because he's just as hardworking as I am.

He understands the market and knows what it takes for you to get what you need.

There isn't another lender I've found who can secure a mortgage pre-approval for you in the following timeframe:

  • 6 hours fully underwritten
  • 7-day processing
  • 1 day to close

That's 8 days, folks! This works in your favor to get a pre-approval letter for which you are fully underwritten.

Not only that but having an agent like me on your side to assist you in this very competitive market is key.

What does it Mean to be Represented by a Full-Service Realtor?

Not many clients truly understand the meaning of being fully represented. Anyone can say, “hey, I’m representing you,” but do we, as consumers, really comprehend the meaning of it, or do we kind of blindly say, “okay”?

I know you always want to know that the person representing you truly has your best interest at heart.

So, what exactly does a full-service broker do over and above what flat-fee brokers do?

A full-service broker like me will not simply list your property. I stage, prospect, and market your home or property the way it should be done, keeping you updated along the way. That is what full service is. When I say I represent my clients, I am looking out for your best interests and that, my friend, is an agency relationship.

Representation also means that I review contracts and make sure you are keeping track of due dates. I help ensure everything is on track. This gives you some peace of mind so that you can actually relax a bit and know I won’t you let you slip through the cracks.

This is something you will find only with a full-service brokerage or me! With a team of professionals on our side at Steel Horse Realtor, we put forth our best efforts collectively to give you the best real estate experience! I also take stock in every person I choose to partner with. I don’t just recommend people because they sound good.

Maintaining a client relationship without numbers or sales in mind is when all of the pieces fall into place. Valuing your wants and needs is what I do best. I really want to help YOU.

Have you considered who your home buying/selling expert is?

My #1 priority as a Realtor® is to work for you and give YOU the best experience with full transparency being my priority – whether you’re looking into purchasing or selling. Additionally, I have a passion for helping those who serve and have served – our active Military and Veterans!

When I hear a Realtor® say they have goals they are chasing in this business, it’s a huge red flag to me… Don’t get me wrong, having goals is outstanding! However, how it’s worded – and the context in which it’s given – is really everything you, the potential client, need to know. Let’s face it, we all have dreams we are chasing, right? How you get there and the reason for doing so is the ultimate answer.

I personally find more joy and a huge sense of accomplishment in being able to act as a trusted real estate agent. I don’t worry about my next million in sales or how that will benefit me.

Look, you could be reading this thinking, ‘okay, everyone in this business wants sales‘. While that’s a fact, it is the ‘why’ that should concern you.

Often, when someone wants something so badly and has a potentially unattainable goal to reach, that person may not care about how to get there. This is where fallacies and the misconstruction of truth come into play.

I’m proud to join Steel Horse Realtor & Company – a grassroots “Mom & Pop shop” if you will – for that exact reason. Full transparency is of utmost importance to me, along with God, Family, and Country.

I’m in the business of helping people achieve their goals of selling their home and/or purchasing one. I believe I owe you the full transparency you deserve without the misconstruction of truth just to attain goals.

I know this process of transparency works because the tile installation business my husband and I run has been successful for over 20 years. We have always operated with full-transparency in mind – including in how we raise our two children in our hometown of Menomonee Falls.

I am focused on – and passionate about – serving our Active Military and Veterans because our oldest son is a Marine. There is a great deal of pride in what I deliver to each client and pride myself in serving you, especially focusing on what you need and want. When I am able to serve my clients in a way that they are happy with, it’s a daily sense of accomplishment!
