Our Home Buying Services!



We take the buying process as seriously as our buyers do, therefore we offer nothing but the highest quality of service to our clients. When you decide to purchase your home, make sure you hire someone whom you can trust and someone who wants to earn your business. Buying your home is one of the most important purchases you will make, so make sure you have the right agent who can provide you with the experience and the service you deserve.

When you understand current market conditions, you are better able to position yourself as a Seller. It helps to know if you are in a Seller's, Buyer's or Balanced market when setting your asking price. In a Buyer's market there is a lot more competition and Buyers have plenty of choices and room to negotiate, forcing you to be very competitive when setting your price.

Here are some of the steps I will take to find your perfect home:

Determine Your Wants and Needs
This is the single most important step. By asking you a series of questions I will establish what you are looking for. My goal is to not waste your time by looking at properties that are not in your price range or homes that don't meet you needs. Throughout the buying process I will maintain your confidentiality and represent your best interests.

Help You Get Pre-Qualified
This step will show you how much you can afford.  This is accomplished by speaking with your financial institution and establishing what monthly payments you will be comfortable with. We can also introduce you to mortgage brokers who can shop your mortgage to different financial institutions & private lenders to ensure you get the best rates and terms.

Home Shopping
I will use every available method to locate a property that matches your search parameters.  This will include properties listed with our office, offered through other real estate companies, as well as unlisted properties.  I will disclose all known facts about the property that are likely to affect your decision. When we find the home that meets your criteria, I will assist you in writing an offer and act as a liason between you and the seller.

Negotiate the Selling Price  I will negotiate on your behalf to ensure you get the very best price on the purchase of your next home. I have been negotiating real Estate deals for over 16 years and I will save you money.

Building Inspections  I will give you a list of qualified home inspectors that you can choose from, or I can suggest my top 3 inspectors to you for use in making sure the home you want to buy is safe & secure. If you are spending 400,000 on the purchase of a home, it only makes sense to spend 400.00 on an inspection of that home. This 1 step could save you Thousands of Dollars.

 Closing Realtor/Notary  I can assist you in finding a qualified lawyer who will help you through the closing process for either the sale or purchase of your next property.
