Call Dr. Z for your next property!
Choosing a real estate agent is an important decision that should be the first step to buying or selling your property. I have a unique and unequalled set of skills and experience that will be a true asset to your real estate transaction. First, I am a highly educated professional who has had a long career in private industry, government and academia. I have lived in several parts of the United States, which gives me insight into how things differ regionally and the challenges faced by those relocating to another area. Furthermore, I have lived in townhomes, single-family homes, condos and rentals...I am keenly aware of the unique advantages that each has to offer. Lastly, I have experience doing home renovations, including drywall installation, painting, wallpapering, tile installation, electrical work, plumbing, insulation installation, and landscape design and installation. Working with a realtor who understands the reality of property ownership, maintenance and renovation is a real advantage that most buyers and sellers prefer to have.
My interests and hobbies include teaching, sustainable food gardening, writing (books, articles and music), creating art and hiking. I do occasional public speaking engagements on the topic of sustainability and sustainable living, something that I firmly believe in. My Ph.D. was focused on sustainable agriculture, something that I also promote. I would enjoy hearing about your interests as well.
