Buying a home can be an overwhelming process. From financing to negotiating to closing, there are a lot of moving pieces that can leave home buyers bewildered.
As an ABR (Accredited Buyer’s Representative) I can help guide you through each step of the buying process, offering sound advice along the way. My training and 10+ years of exp-erience have taught me the ins and outs of the real estate industry. You’ll not only end up with a great home, but you’ll also walk away with a great experience too!
A QUICK OVERVIEW OF KEY AREAS:
STEP #1: Getting pre-approved by a lender
By providing some basic information about your income, savings, and debt, a reputable lender can usually get you pre-approved online or over the phone. The lender will then go over your financing options; How much home can you afford? what monthly payment amount you can afford? and what you can expect for down payment requirements and closing costs? I am happy to let you know what lenders I have worked successfully with and who may have the best loan product for your target area. Click HERE for more information on Getting Pre Approved..
STEP #2: Choosing a home
For most buyers, choosing a home is an emotional process. My job is to assist you in this process by offering objective information about each property you look at. From local community information like schools and zoning to home-specific details like condition and amenities. Our goal is to help you find exactly what you’re looking for.

STEP #3: Making an offer
Once you’ve found the home of your dreams, I will research recent comparable sales of similar homes in the area to help determine a fair selling price. Based on those comparable sales, as well as other factors like inspections and repairs, we will then structure an offer and negotiate to get the very best deal possible.

STEP #4: Closing
Closing, is usually the easiest part of the process! Your lender will go over the closing disclosure statement to make sure that you know EXACTLY what you will need to close the deal. Click HERE to learn more about the closing process.
