How We Help You Buy a House
What Homes We can Show You
The vast majority of SERIOUS SELLERS have their properties listed for sale with a FULL SERVICE REAL ESTATE AGENT on the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) market. These are the homes we focus on. On occasion, though, the right home may be outside the scope of MLS. For example, an exclusive listing, private sale, or builder’s inventory of spec homes under construction. WE HELP YOU sort through ALL of these to find the right home!
More than Showing You Homes
Choosing homes to view is just the beginning. A big part of my job as your agent is to find the right home for you BEFORE other buyers find it, make you AWARE of any potential problems with the property, negotiate the BEST CONTRACT PRICE and TERMS. We will HELP YOU to experience a SMOOTH PROCESS all the way through possession date.
So you’re on the road and we have to get an offer to purchase contract initialed before another offer comes in. No fax machine, no scanning machine…No problem! We use simple technology that allows you to electronically sign and initial documents on your device. All you need is access to your email. It’s easy, it’s free, and it’s effective.
