I’m live in the Sacramento Valley…and I love it! After a brief and exciting venture into “show biz” (sang and danced in our very own Music Circus, then traveled extensively while performing in a variety of theater productions, television shows and commercials), I returned to Northern California and settled in a Silicon Valley community south of San Francisco. When an opportunity arose to move to the Sacramento area, I jumped at the chance to return to my roots and prove that you can indeed “go home again”.
I remember my childhood in Sacramento with fondness. I grew up in a family with deep roots in the community and an affinity for real estate. My brother Frank Poelman was a builder of custom homes in the Carmichael area. His son, Ken, owns Poelman Construction Company building commercial property from Taco Bells to large chain hotels. Aphra Pia, my sister, is an established interior designer and photographer. I developed an interest in the performing arts while attending C.K.McClatchyHigh School and embarked on my career as a professional performer shortly after graduation.
Apparently my family’s attraction to real estate related activities was contagious. After 3 very interesting careers I decided it was my turn to enter into the real estate arena. I found my real passion! I love the interaction with people from first time home buyers to empty nesters, to older transitioning seniors. There is a satisfaction I’ve never found in any of my other “lives” that comes from helping people realize their goals.
I’ve settled in the most wonderful place in the world, Fair Oaks. The lush green trees and rolling hills make this a destination for many people. Excellent schools, kayaking, bicycling, walking along the river, shopping, eating and the most spectacular evening nights you could ask for make this the perfect place to be.
The market is a tough one right now, forcing us to specialize in things we never thought of 5 years ago. In order for me to be able to help my clients I have expanded my capabilities with studying the ins-and-outs of selling and buying of REO’s (bank owned properties) and Short Sales. I am a Certified HAFA Specialist and have a Lyon Short Sale Certification.
I am also a Senior’s Real Estate Specialist assisting seniors and their families with everything from deciding what to keep, where are the best places to live, and try to make sure the whole family is satisfied.
I am a big believer that education is key to a successful transaction whether you are a first time home buyer, a move-up buyer, a relocation, or if you are downsizing. I want to hear what your needs and expectations are so I ask a lot of questions. Then I will guide you and make sure you have access to the other professionals you will need to reach your goals.
I’m able to do these things because:
I am very knowledgeable of the loan process and requirements as it relates to different types of properties; regular equity sales, Bank-Owned (REO), and Short Sales.
I am familiar with the cities I work in and am able to do excellent comparative evaluations in the areas of Orangevale, Citrus Heights, Folsom, Fair Oaks, Carmichael, Arden Arcade, East Sac,RiverPark,ArdenPark, Sierra Oaks,LandPark,Roseville.
I will work tirelessly for you and follow through on each detail.
I will help you stage your home for maximum impact.
I will hire a professional photographer so that when buyers are looking on line they are drawn to the best attributes of your property.
I will use all my on-line expertise to market your property, as well as directly working with the vast network of other professional realtors.
And last but not least, I will make you my top priority because without you I have no business!
