More About Me

Business Philosophy

Lydia is passionate about integrity, commitment and finding out what you need! Open, honest communication combined with information based on facts is what she strives for. Each Client is very important and should be treated like they are "special". One of the things she values most, is being responsive. In today's hurry up world, we often forget to get back to people in a timely manner. This is one of her top priorities and it will avoid misunderstandings. If there is a misunderstanding or error, she will to fix it as quickly as possible, without blame ,but rather by finding solutions.

Listening to your needs and wants is key for her to successfully find, or sell your home! In a big decision such as buying or selling a home, it is important that you trust her . She will look for ways to earn that trust, by communicating often in the manner you most prefer. Also following up and giving you status on any changes is another key element. In the end, she wants you to love the way she works, before, during and after Escrow.

Referrals are her life-line and if she did the best job ,than she would love to see that translate into future business with a personal referral from you!
