Killeen Real Estate Today

As I have reacquainted myself this past month to what is available in the Killeen & Fort Hood area real estate market – I found myself floating into a cloud of familiar comfort.

Even with the short time I was out of main-stream real estate and working for a national home builder, there have been a plethora of changes… and yet things are still quite the same. Homes are still being built at record pace, buyer’s are still eager to purchase their first homes, mortgage rates are still at an all-time low and REALTORS are still running around like crazy people trying to make it all happen in the best interest of their Clients.

The changes I see are in the vast expansion of the Greater Killeen area – neighborhoods are popping up everywhere and new businesses are flocking to town to try and get a piece of this flourishing economy. I see more and more branded & franchise businesses but also the beloved “mom & pop” shops are still making a go of it too. It’s all very exciting to watch as our little town becomes a thriving city.

Your favorite REALTOR is back in Service! Killeen, Harker Heights, Fort Hood Real Estate

I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to be BACK in traditional real estate after my brief stint in new home sales with a national builder. I remember thinking many times during my first years as a Realtor – “Wow I bet those builder sales reps have a cool job” … now I know.

Although my time with the builder was an educational experience, the most profound thing I learned was about myself. I truly enjoy working with and FOR the buyer. It is my natural instinct to want to help a buyer get the best deal possible and at times my hands were tied even if I knew they could get a better deal. My job with the builder – was to work for the builder’s best interests. So, here I am back doing what I do best – working as a REALTOR.

The good news is that now, after gathering information about how things work on the “other side” – I can use that knowledge to help buyers get a REALLY good deal when they are negotiating with a new home builder and their sales department. I fully understand what the builder is and is not willing to do and in which situations a buyer can get a really sweet deal on the home of their dreams.

My new position is with Coldwell Banker United – and the award winning, nationally recognized SHINE TEAM in Harker Heights, Texas. I am working exclusively with buyers looking to purchase homes in the Killeen, Harker Heights, Fort Hood, Copperas Cove, Kempner, Temple, Belton areas. My specialty is working with military families who are relocating to the Fort Hood base from elsewhere, first-time buyers and anyone looking for their dream home or just their “next” home in the general area around Fort Hood Texas. Along with the other members on my team, we can provide a buyer the best real estate experience anyone could ask for. The process is smooth and seamless from start to finish!!

If you, or anyone you know is looking to buy a new or resale home in the Killeen / Fort Hood area -please contact me for top-notch service. My 11 years in real estate and 27 years in the local area will be a huge benefit to anyone needing advice, assistance and a new friend in their new home town!
