What makes you an expert in Rosedale?
For several years, my wife and I have lived in Allandale, Rosedale’s neighbor to the north, and I know the market intimately. I have helped many families buy and sell homes in Rosedale over the years, and I am a recognized expert in the community. I know the intricacies of our older homes, as well the remodels, and I can help clients understand what to expect and and how to prepare for inspections. This makes all the difference when negotiating on either side of the table, and is often what helps my clients move smoothly through the contract-to-close period.
