I have spent my career building classes for business owners, primarily in the floor covering industry. My expertise is primarily in customer service and managing the customer experience as well as trends and design.  I love creating my classes because of my interest and expertise in these subjects. Below is my list of courses;  when  choosing the appropriate home, buyers are often confronted with issues involving the topics below: 

Floor Covering: I have four floor covering classes: Fabulous Floors & Advanced Flooring , Retro Flooring, and Flooring Trends and Solutions.

Outside Living and the expansion to the outdoors spurred by current events and climate changes.

The Value of Historic Homes and their distinctive neighborhoods.

Aging in Place and concerns of home owners as to whether they should move or retrofit their current home.

Kitchens and Master Baths Trends and Solutions Whether your client is buying or selling a house, it’s important to have an idea of what’s available and what renovating these rooms will cost and add to the ultimate value and sale-ability of the home. This course covers these topic in depth.
