I began my real estate career as a licensed agent for a large broker in Roseville. After five years, I was asked to join a small company in St. Paul where I spent six years before launching my own company. I became a Real Estate Broker in 2014. A broker has education and testing beyond what is required for a licensed agent. Vexillum Realty was launched in 2015.
During my real estate career, I earned an AAS in Visualization Technology from Saint Paul College where I was a member of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. The degree focused on digital photography, web design, search engine optimization, video production and many other related areas. This specific education taught me how to get results from online marketing for my sellers.
I am an e-Pro. Earning the e-Pro Certification taught me how to effectively use real estate technology when helping home buyers and sellers. As an e-Pro, I’m able to keep up with changing trends in marketing properties online.
I am a CNE, Certified Negotiation Expert. I was trained in professional representation techniques and how to apply them to real estate transactions. Negotiation skills may be the most important service provided by a real estate agent. I’ve been trained to negotiate the best price for my clients when buying and selling real estate. I’ve also been trained to identify negotiation techniques used by other agents. This training, along with experience, empowers me to make the process effortless for my clients.
My experience is mainly from helping clients to buy and sell their primary residence. I also have experience with commercial real estate, rental properties and renovation projects. The majority of my clients in recent years have been referred to me by past clients. My real estate sales experience has been across several areas of Ramsey, Dakota, Hennepin, Washington and Anoka Counties.
