Aficionado: “a person who is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about an activity, subject or pastime.”

You can read all about me on my “About” page, out for now I want to give you a synopsis of my website and our companies. I have been in real estate for 11 years and over that time I have become passionate about what I do and how I do it. I believe that you should treat people the way you expect to be treated and I live my life accordingly. Our business model is very different from that of other real estate companies. Together with my husband, family, and wonderful employees we are pioneering a whole new way to look at real estate. My husband and I own and operate The Realty Factor and Global Asset Management Group (GAMG). I spend my time running the day to day activities of The Realty Factor which includes Sales and Property Management. My husband, Joe, spends his working hours as an Investment Advisor providing investment advice for clients and managing their portfolios.

Our companies bring a new financial outlook to real estate including the owning of Investment properties, which has become a specialty (see Joe’s site to learn more about investment advice for retirement).  Whether you are looking to buy real estate as a primary residence, investment property, or you are looking to sell we are a one stop shop. Most real estate agents are independent contractors; therefore they either sell property or manage rental properties. Very few do both; out of those who do none have an in-house investment advisor who will review the properties for you.

Best of all, you can use one service or many, all under one roof. So, if you are just looking to sell your property we can help; however, if you are interested in finding out if selling your property is in your best long-term interest we can review that as well. Other companies would have you sell whether it was the right decision or not, not because they don’t want to do right by you but because they don’t know any different. Helping you buy or sell is the only service they can offer.

We have preferred real estate attorneys, decorators and contractors we work with if your problem is not financial. Check out our company websites.

 On this site I have set it up for you to learn a little more about me, your potential representative. In addition, I have some good real estate information for buyers, sellers, renters and investment property owners. Most importantly my blog will have some great stories, information, how-tos, ways to protect yourself in the real estate world and even some fun real estate “war” stories. Enjoy and don’t forget to subscribe to my blog I will do my best to keep the stories fun, clear and witty!
