About this pro

At Charitable Realty we do things a bit differently. At the close of each transaction we donate 10% of our commission to a charity that our client chooses, in their name. You can use any agent, so why not use one that gives back to the community?

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

When working with a new client I like to better understand their motivation for buying or selling so I can best match our Brokerage offerings to their needs. My goal is to find them the home of their dreams at a comfortable price point and move them through escrow with ease. If selling, I wish to bring them top dollar in a timely fashion while thoroughly upholding my fudiciary duties. I want to make sure I serve them to the best of my abilities to meet & exceed expectations.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a Ph.D. in Sociology from the Univeristy of North Texas, a Masters in Sociology from Cal State Fullerton, a BA in Sociology from Cal State Fullerton and am a Second Generation Broker and Owner of a Real Estate Firm. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

It is vital to use a Buyers Agent as we are paid by Seller(s) and work for Buyer(s) at no cost to them. An agent is paid commission as determined through listing agreements set by a Seller and Broker. These commissions typically range from 1%-3% of sale price. We offer a menu of listing services that start as low as $500.00.


How did you get started in this business?

I worked as a college Professor for 18 years and had strong ties to non-profits throughout the DFW area. When I retired from teaching I wanted to maintain my non-profit network and combine it with Real Estate - the family business I grew up in. Hence, Charitable Realty was born. We donate 10% of earned commission to the Charity of the Client(s) choice in their honor. We have donated more than $250,000.00 to date.


What types of customers have you worked with?

I have worked with all types of clients and specialize in new home buyers, Veterans and relocation. I love working with anyone who wants to buy or sell, those in a challenging position and those looking for vacation property. I have sold more than $100M with an average sale price of $250K.


Describe a recent project you are fond of.

At our firm we have a Meals on Wheels Route each Wednesday in Northside, Fort Worth. We volunteer on a regular basis and try to give back as much as possible. Our office tithes to the community through funds and service and we are blessed in return.


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Definitely hire a Realtor! We work in this industry for a living and are constantly updated with changes in legal and ethical parameters. We know how to negotiate, manage escrow and protect a client(s) interest.


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

(1) Understand the market dynamics, know whether it is a sellers or buyers market and be prepared to be patient when shopping for a home or dealing with appraisals as a seller.

(2) Understand the role of a Realtor and their boundaries. Look for an experienced Realtor who knows the market and is technologically saavy. You want to hire a Realtor who can access information quickly and write a deal even faster. Realtor(s) cannot interpret the law but can only fight for your rights and serve you to the best of their ability.
