For Buyers

Helping you find your dream home
I understand that trying to find that perfect home can be both exciting and nerve-wracking. That is why I firmly believe in preparation and planning. With my experience, my skills and my resources, I can do the work for you so you can enjoy the search - and own the home of your dreams.

As a buyer's agent, I will:

  • Show you homes in any neighborhood of your choice, regardless of the listing company
  • Find the best possible home in your price range
  • Give you information to help you make the right decision
  • Act as your advocate in purchase negotiations, and represent you at all stages
  • Monitor each step of the buying process from beginning to end

Here are a few tips for homebuyers:

  • Know your budget. A pre-qualification process will give you an informed opinion on what you can afford.
  • Pre-approval is based on the documentation and verified information you supply concerning your income, employment and cash flow. This process is a sign of your intent to the seller and proves you are creditworthy.
  • Gather information on the true cost of home ownership - taxes, insurance, closing costs, and upkeep
  • Know your neighborhoods and decide where you want to live. Is it important to be close to your job or services such as restaurants and entertainment? Or would you rather live in a more secluded area? Talk to your potential neighbors and visit the area during different times of the day.
  • Decide what kind of home would work best for you. Will you be more comfortable in a colonial two-story home, or a condominium? What are the important elements in a home - a big backyard, a large kitchen and dining area for entertaining? A garage? A swimming pool? Share your list with me, and I will help you find the perfect match.
