General Soul’s Home® FAQs
What do you mean by Soul?
I use the distinction one of my wonderful mentors, Barbara Huson makes. She summarizes the differences in her book Sacred Success and has allowed me to share them with you.
Is this about religion?
That’s up to you. Whether your soul directs you to follow beliefs and practices of a specific religion or no religion at all, on the Journey to Your Soul’s Home®, it’s important to me that I honor that. Not only is this required by Fair Housing Laws, it’s part of my soul’s purpose to respect your soul.
Why is your spiritual approach to buying/selling my home better than the service that is offered by a typical real estate agent?
Brokerage with A Side of Soul℠ FAQs
How long before I want to buy/sell my house may we start working together?
We’ll start between 2 and 15 months before your desired buy/sell month depending upon where you are in the process and what your needs are. The more time the better but if you need to buy or sell quickly, the process can be shortened into as little as two months.
Does my spouse need to be on the initial free 30 minute call with me?
No. For the initial call, I only need to talk with one person who would be party to a transaction. If you decide that this approach is something you’d like to explore, we’d schedule a second free consultation with all parties.
How much commission do you charge for helping me buy or sell a house?

Soul’s Home® Alignment Plan FAQs
What is the purpose of the Soul’s Home® Alignment Plan?
The Soul’s Home® Alignment Plan will reveal the spiritual purpose of your home and which Soul’s Home® ingredients you need to feed your soul. You’ll hear if your soul is calling you to stay in your current home or move on.
What can I expect during the Soul’s Home® Alignment Plan?
First, you’ll complete the Soul’s Home® DIY. It’s a self-paced, on-line tool with videos, exercises, and meditations. It’ll take you a total of 3-6 hours depending upon how much you’d like to think or elaborate on each question. I’ll read your report. Then we’ll meet on Zoom for a soul-to-soul conversation for about two hours. You’ll give me a tour of your home to show me what you like and don’t like. I’ll tune into the quiet voice of your soul and amplify it so you can hear it too. By the end of our visit, you’ll know the spiritual purpose of your home and feel inspired to follow your soul’s call, whether it be to start packing, change something about your home or change the way you look at it.
Is there a fee for Soul’s Home® Alignment Plan?
If you are outside the DC Metro area and/or not ready to sign a brokerage agreement with me, the fee is $297.
If you sign a Buyer Broker or Listing Agreement with me, the Soul’s Home® Alignment Plan is included in the brokerage fee.
Does my significant other have to do the Soul’s Home® Alignment Plan with me?
Yes, if you are a Brokerage client planning to move with your significant other.
No, if you are hiring me to help you decide if you should stay or to make a referral out of my service area.
I’d like my children to participate too. Is that possible?
For Brokerage clients, I meet with the parents first. From there, we decide how and when to involve any children.
I’m already working with another Realtor® in the DC area. Can I hire you to do a Soul’s Home® Alignment Plan and to coordinate with my Realtor®?
If you have an active brokerage agreement with another agent, I can’t do a Soul’s Home® Alignment Plan as this could be seen as a violation of the Realtor®’s Code of Ethics.
You may purchase the Soul’s Home® DIY to help you clarify your needs and share it with your agent.
Since I don’t live in the DC area, would you be willing to do a Soul’s Home® Alignment Plan for me and coordinate with a Realtor® in my area?
Absolutely! For more information click here.
Can I just hire you as my Realtor and skip the Soul’s Home® Alignment Plan?
Been there. Done that. It hasn’t worked well for my clients or me. So, now I start most transactions with a Soul’s Home® Alignment Plan. This process increases the likelihood that your soul will be the guide. While the soul work can be intense, it typically simplifies and solidifies the real estate transactional work, making life easier for you in the long run. I make exceptions for those who don’t/won’t live in the home, i.e., investment property or purchasing a home for your parents. I make an exception to the on-line portion of the plan for anyone who isn’t able to work on-line.
Can I hire you to do a Soul’s Home® Alignment Plan even if I know I won’t be buying or selling a home anytime soon?
Yes. Click Here to pay and schedule.
How do I schedule a Soul's Home Alignment Plan?
