Taking a personable down to earth approach with my clients to ensure a long lasting relationship for years to come.
I was born and raised in the small lakeshore town of Kewaunee, as a result, I have kept my small town value system as a very important part of who I am. With a background in remodeling, renovating and restoring homes with my father Dana Bertrand in the Kewaunee area, Real Estate always sparked my attention. I was always blessed with negotiation skills that came very natural to me even at a small age and has only grown into an obsession as I became an adult.
When I began my career I had no idea that there was such a demand for agents willing to put in the extra time for first time home buyers that need the extra help with understanding credit and the harder Government loans. This leads me to research Loans and sit one on one with a few Lenders to better understand how the Low Credit score, Low down payment loans that are out there. Once I understood the requirement my next step was CREDIT that evil word to many of the first time home buyers. I found a company that actually helps out buyers that need a little boost in a score and helping to remove the bad credit as well. The extra steps I have taken have really prepared me for the harder loans such as FHA, FHA 203K, Wheda, USDA, VA and more. With all this, I have been able to help many people get out from under slum lords and into their own homes.
The two best parts of my job would be, watching the face of first time homeowners hold the keys to their first home and the PRIDE that just shines from their faces. The other would be being able to call my sellers to tell them we have an offer and they decide to accept the offer, the look on their face is like I just took a million pounds off their shoulders and nothing but relief.
If you are looking for a casual approach to Real Estate with a very fun energetic agent that still knows how to throw a punch at the negotiation table I am just the Realtor you have been looking for.
