Quality of life and strength of investment… for most families, that’s the bottom line in selecting a new home.
With nearly 40 neighborhoods in Lakeland, which is best for you and your family?
New Construction or Resale? Single Family, Condo or Town Home? Gated or Non-Gated? LAKELAND or Lakeland Hills? King County or Pierce County? Rental? Short term or long term?
The choices can be dizzying.

Knowledge of the almost 40 unique Lakeland neighborhoods, each with its special set of characteristics and amenities
Buying a home in Viewridge is different than buying a home in Foxwood – for a huge number of reasons! Only a Lakeland specialist would be tuned into the differences and market it accordingly.
Knowledge of how the Homeowner Association Works
There are almost as many HOAs as there are neighborhoods – and with an umbrella HOA as well! As a buyer it is critical for you to know the ins and outs of each, what dues you are responsible for, and what special assessments may be lurking on the horizon.
Knowledge on how to access gated communities
There are a number of gated communities within Lakeland which can make it difficult to drive by properties as they come on the market. Since I live in Lakeland, it is very easy for me to meet you at a home that has just come on the market to take a look. No special drive-by needed!
Understanding the importance of community communication
Homeowners love living in Lakeland and I have a connection with a good percentage of the homeowners. That's an advantage for my buyers because I usually am one of the first to know if The Smiths are planning on downsizing or if my neighbor is planning on moving to another Lakeland neighborhood. My buyers are uniquely positioned to act when the home hits the market.
Knowledge of what's New in Lakeland
Unless an agent goes to the board meetings, runs a Lakeland Facebook page, is constantly on top of new developments, and talks to Lakeland residents every day, it is almost impossible to stay in-the-know. However, I do all of the above and sometimes a little knowledge of what is coming up for our community can be very valuable for a buyer.
