Our vision is Living Life as a Contribution®.
Our mission is transactional excellence and client satisfaction. That means The Lafferty team works tirelessly to make your home buying or selling process as efficient, stress-free, and lucrative for you as possible.
We take pride in offering high-caliber full-service residential real estate expertise. Our clients are my top priority, and we focus on delivering the best possible results for them.
The real estate market is hyper local, seasonal and temperamental—in other words, it can change on a dime. Technology has made information more accessible to everyone, but it can be difficult to keep up with recent events that affect home values. The benefits of working with a licensed real estate professional go far beyond what a mobile app, online video, or website can do.
The Lafferty team provides our clients with information on market seasonality and information relevant to what is happening in their specific neighborhood. This customized analysis includes recent comparable sales that factor into an offer and acceptance strategy.
Successful negotiations help move a conversation forward and transform the process into an agreement that’s a win for all parties. Negotiation is not only a skill but a mindset. I keep my clients’ best interests top of mind as we negotiate on their behalf. A lifetime of education, training, and decades of experience have made successful negotiations both my passion and successful career.
We are dedicated to transactional excellence for every listing and sale. What this means for you is that our team oversees every detail of the real estate transaction. The transaction is far from over once an offer has been accepted. We monitor inspections, appraisals, title, escrow and loan processes. Communication and collaboration with all the partners and parties involved with the transaction to ensure a smooth and timely closing. Our Transaction Coordinator monitors every step to ensure timeliness and compliance. The Lafferty Team is committed to our clients before, during and after a sale.
Finding the home you'll be pleased to wake up in for years to come is our destination, however, the journey should be pleasant! We will worry about every detail so you can relax and enjoy the experience.
