Why me?

I have good knowledge of the market, current neighborhood sales (from constant monitoring and studying), which means that I am able to provide current comps for a home, regardless of someone buying or selling. I work hard to assist people into selling their home, or making a purchase or both and have worked with investors at both the purchase and selling role. I maintain good relationships with strong lending institutions, title companies, contractors, and other professionals.

I am known for my excellent negotiation and compromise skills and have good knowledge of the process of buying and selling a home, so it goes smoothly. I'm also organized, which helps with the process and am affiliated with a long-term company with a good reputation and have an excellent, experienced support staff working behind the scenes.

I believe in treating people respectfully. I pride myself on being honest and upholding the Realtor Code of Ethics. All buyers and sellers get the same one-on-one attention and quality service, regardless of price point. I am constantly taking classes to further educate myself. 

As a former nurse, I know how to take care of people. After all, nurses have been voted the most honest and ethical professions. Being a realtor is not all that different. I have experience and am a FULL time agent. No one will provide you the service I will. It's my promise to you.

Helen Crow. Those two words make you think, Topeka and/or real estate, not always in that order.
 

Long before I was in the real estate profession, I knew who Helen was. I had friends that raved about her, and when I would mention that I loved everything about real estate, and would talk about any aspect, I was told more than once, “you should talk to Helen Crow, she’d love to hear your thoughts.”
 

Fast forward sixteen years, and I joined the ranks at Kirk and Cobb. The first day of my training, the afternoon session was taught by Helen. I was immediately a raving fan. She was so helpful, so generous with her knowledge, and I soaked up every word.

Helen sat in her office the very first time I wrote an offer with a buyer. It gave me confidence knowing she was there. Over the years, she helped me figure out what to say, when to say it, and how best to phrase what I needed to say.
 

We came from similar backgrounds, and had already had “tough discussions” with people in our previous professions. We also share a similar mindset in the respect of what “full service” means, customer care, and maintaining long-term relationships. You don’t get rid of us at closing. Over the years, we formed a personal and professional bond.

Helen’s professional assistant, Sheree, has retired after working 30 years with Helen. Helen also has three beautiful grandchildren with whom she is wanting to spend more time.
 

As a result, we begin 2022 teamed up with Helen to work together and serve customers with the same level of service they have grown accustomed to. It is an honor and a privilege to begin this partnership. Helen will continue to give advice and dispense the wisdom that she has shared with customers for nearly 50 years.
 

A sincere thank you to Helen and her customers for being so welcoming and accepting of me. Forever in debt to Sheree Smith for her patience in training, sharing, and setting the bar high.
 

As always, grateful to my family, friends, and customers for your confidence and faith in allowing me to be your trusted real estate resource. The past two years have been challenging and the cooperation I’ve experienced on all levels has been humbling.
