Thanks for taking the time to "Meet Gene Cain".
Below is a summary of my history and accomplishments. While these may be of interest to you I would first like to take a moment to share my beliefs about hiring a Realtor to work for you. I believe that real estate is a personal service business. When you hire a Realtor you are hiring a person, not a company. With the advent of the Internet as a marketing tool selling real estate has completely changed. – the Internet has leveled the playing field. It is an agent who “markets” your home for sale, not a company. A solid Internet presence is critical to the success of obtaining the highest price for a home sale. Most companies have an Internet presence but sellers who take the time to look at just how the agents makes use of this presence will find that there are few agents who use the internet to its fullest potential.
Whether you are a buyer or seller, you should hire a person you can trust, who listens to your needs and has the knowledge and commitment to produce results. I believe that you should take the time to interview agents before deciding who will best serve you. They should “show you” what they can do to best market your home. I welcome the opportunity to meet with you or talk over the phone so that you can get to know me better and we can discuss in detail what your needs are and how I may be able to best serve you. My goal with every transaction is for you to walk away feeling like your best interests were first and foremost throughout the transaction. I enjoy the challenge of negotiating a contract that meets your needs and protects your financial interests. I feel confident that my honesty and integrity and sincere enjoyment of my profession will provide you with the highest degree of service you should expect to receive. Please feel free to call or email me to see if we can work as a team to accomplish your real estate goals.
I am a fourth generation Californian and have been living in Meadow Vista, Placer County since 1985. My husband Scott and I moved here because of our love for the Sierra Foothills and our desire to raise our 3 children in a rural environment. We have never regretted our choice to pull up our roots and move to the country and have always enjoyed the benefits of having the city of Sacramento nearby.
