Also, not all Realtors® have completed the advanced studies and required time in real estate to obtain the highest designation of Broker.
I entered Real estate in 1977 working for several well known Banks and S&Ls, First Interstate,Home Savings, Chase etc... I learned the importance of thorough documentation, determining mortgage qualifications and customer service. Today, I am able to quickly determine if a potential buyer is one that has the necessary qualifications to purchase one of my listings.
During the 1980’s, the market rendered new challenges brought about by change in federal regulations and the advancement of consumer protection. At this time, I had advanced to Senior Loan officer, further increasing my skills of letter perfect documentation and also acquiring the patience to listen to each applicant’s needs and desires which has proven to be a valuable attribute today. This is also where I learned how important it was to move in a timely manner and relentlessly pursue the closing of each real estate transaction.
Experience: Cohen Brown Default Management, Northern California Wholesale Manager at Chase, Underwriter with First Interstate, Property Manager with OakTree Home Loan. I did my first REO as an Agent in 1989.Asset Manager Training.
As a result of handling thousands of real estate lending transactions, I acquired her Real Estate license and transitioned into the realm of selling real estate. It was a natural progression to utilize my specialized training to now control both sides of the transaction, to better service my client’s needs and assure the completion of the sale. I have worked for such note-worthy highest producing, Real Estate companies as Re/max Gold, Folsom Real Estate and Lyon Real Estate which helped to increase my broad spectrum of skills, advanced Real Estate training and moving toward the next stage in my career.
In 2002, I decided it was time to leave the regimented corporate environment. I had earned my Brokers License and wanted to open a Real Estate company that was focused on the individual client needs, instead of an inflexible corporate agenda. I also wanted my husband, Edward, to bring his Brokers License and merge his 30 years of sales and marketing to our new company.
When I opened OakTree Real Estate Services, it was important to me to have the most experienced trustworthy team available, members who are long time residents, and those that can provide maturity and understanding to each individual client’s needs. Each team member has vast experience in each area of the Real Estate dynamic, to give each buyer and seller the most seamless transaction possible.
The REO Team averages over 20 years of experience.
I have personally sold 100s of Bank and Credit Union Real Estate Assets.
