I Love Working with Military Families and Their Real Estate Needs

I’ve been in the real estate business in Hampton Roads for over 6 years and have been in real estate for over 17 years. One of the most rewarding parts of my career has been helping military families relocate.


  Let’s face it: You don’t have a choice about the move and you have unique needs and motivations. Through the years, in helping my military buyers and sellers, I’ve learned:  

  1. Moving into an area with a good public school system is a must. You move a lot through the years and you don’t want your children to suffer those moves with a poor education.
  2. Security clearance is a necessary component of your career that can’t be compromised with bad credit history.  If you are buying in this economic climate, it is essential your home be a good investment. You must make the purchase that allows you to NOT be in the red when you sell again in  3-5 years.
  3. Still thinking about security clearance, you also need to be able to sell that home that you purchased 3 years ago before the economic downturn without long-term damage to your credit history. This is where a good short sale agent is essential. You need that agent to communicate well with your lender and also with other real estate agents to get your home sold. A bump on your credit report is doable, a foreclosure is not.
  4. When you are buying, many times you are on strict time line that only allows a limited number of trips to house hunt. You need an agent that listens to your wish list, is well organized with the proper showings and shows you enough properties for you to make a good decision on the home that is right for you.
  5. You need an agent that has resources to help you with required repairs as a long distance seller may need. As a buyer, you need similar resources if you are buying a short sale or foreclosure home as your unique investment/home.

I’ve really enjoyed my military clients and have found them to be appreciative, kind and loyal to me as a person and agent. The referrals have been wonderful in return and they continue to call me to help with their next real estate need. 

If you are a military family needing to sell or buy in the Hampton Roads area, please give me a call and let me share with you my military real estate relocation training I’ve had through the years and my personal experience and success. Nothing is more fun and rewarding than to team up with a wonderful military family!
