The Happy Hippie Real Estate Agent, Realtor®, GREEN
My Name Is Sammi And I Am Here To Help You Find The Keys To Your Happy Place.
Your home is more than a space…it is YOUR HAPPY PLACE! A part of who you are and what you love. The place where find yourself, raise a family, and experience safety. When selling and/or buying a home, you are transforming your life to align with your current needs and building the next chapter of your life story. For many people a home is likely your largest investment.
The journey to your HAPPY PLACE can be daunting and risky without proper representation. I provide peace of mind to my clients with a professional real estate experience and keep your best interest in mind on the journey to your happy place!
I CAN HELP YOU BUY A HOME
I will work diligently to find you the home of your dreams! When purchasing, it is particularly important to have a real estate agent who is highly available and willing to get you all of the information necessary to make an informed decision. Whether you are a first-time home buyer, or a seasoned home buyer looking to move into a new life chapter, I can take the stress out of the experience and leave you with a smile! I encourage my clients to explore many properties. During this process I remain highly available so that we can tour homes as soon as they appear on the market. I specialize in energy efficient and green home features (i.e. LED lighting, energy efficient appliances, PV Solar Arrays, geothermal systems, LEED and other green building certifications, smart-home technology, etc.). I understand the value of energy efficient features and have a network of professionals who specialize in these technologies.
NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® GREEN DESIGNATION
My passion is resource-efficiency and sustainability! Homes which consume less resources will keep more money in your pocket every month. The intensive coursework required for attaining this designation means I have the skills to recognize and understand these features. Older homes can be retrofitted with new technology and could be certified with an Energy Star(r) rating or other certifications, These valuable attributes may make a Green (aka Sustainable) home worth more, sell quicker, and are both more comfortable and healthier to live in. Marketing Green features when you are selling requires an agent educated and knowledgeable in the added value and benefits. A buyer looking for Green features should have someone who understands the technology as well as the available financing options. The sale of a Green home can differ from that of a conventional sale. Energy efficient, Sustainable, and Green home features are in demand and I specialize in this type of real estate transaction.
I CAN HELP YOU SELL A HOME
Selling your home requires a Real Estate Agent who can determine an accurate listing price, pursue an appropriate marketing campaign, and has the skills to negotiate with potential buyers. Highlighting a home’s Green, energy efficient, and high-performing features is my specialty since I know their value. Having assisted numerous buyers with lengthy home searches and experienced the bidding process on many properties, I can suggest preparations that you may not have considered prior to listing for a smooth sale process. Some of these suggestions are not cosmetic. I have a network of professionals available to assist you with any kind of home preparations necessary!
MARKET VALUE EVALUATIONS
If you are thinking about selling your home and would like to know its estimated value, I will get you the information you need to make an informed selling decision. My valuations include three price points, one based on the current or “as-is” condition of the property, a price with low-cost changes and/or repairs, and a higher valuation if more extensive changes/repairs are considered. This gives you options in selling. According to one study, 25% of buyers surveyed will pay between 5 and 10% more for a resource-efficient home.

Sammi helped me to not only find my condo but also helped with the sale of my mother’s townhome. She is always readily available for anything I need. I would highly recommend Sammi to anyone for their real estate needs.Aimee Johnson
Sammi is a smart, knowledgeable, honest, friendly, and Totally trustworthy person. Doing business with her is always enjoyable.Andrew Olson
I will work with her any given day, she is so easy to talk to, great listener, she will bring the best of her in all directions. I will be working with her for my next project.Joy Islam
Sammi made both a selling and buying experience easy. In the spring of 2017 she helped me navigate a complicated sale and I received more than I anticipated for my home in St. Paul. Next, I had to find an affordable home in the Mahtomedi School district. After looking at everything on the market for six weeks, I was in despair. She stayed positive and her diligence paid off. She found a property which was within my budget and had all the features I needed. My kids and I love our home. She helped me understand the legal aspects of both home selling and buying as well as purchase negotiation in a hot sellers’ market. She was always available when I wanted to look at a property. She went above and beyond for me and I highly recommend her services.Paul Lockbaum
