She loves the new home market and helping buyers navigate this more complex purchase. She is patient and sensitive to buyer’s individual needs and whether first time buyers, or her senior clientele, she helps all her clients understand and distill the myriad of information. As a result of her 40 years growth and experience in the real estate profession, Rose offers her clients professional guidance, superior market insights, innovative marketing and a very high level of customer service.
