Find Your Dream Home
Navigating the Process
Your Trusted Advocate.
Whether you are buying your first home, or your fifth, your forever home, or an investment property, buying real estate is a BIG deal and not something you should do on your own. Nor should you settle for an average agent that is just there to open doors for you. As a skilled negotiator, I will walk you through finding the perfect neighborhood, making the right offer, and navigating everything from inspection to closing. As your buyer's agent, I will be your advocate every step of the way.

Your Everything-Home Resource
I Have The Connections
Purchasing a home, whether new construction or a complete fixer-upper, requires hiring qualified professionals to do the jobs that you can't, or don't want to do. From home inspections to landscaping, from home insurance to packing and moving your belongings, I have the professional connections to help make your move as streamlined as possible.
Finding The Perfect Home
Meet With Me
Discuss the type of home you're looking for, including style, price, and location.
The Buyer's Advantage
As the home buyer, our commission is paid by the seller of the home in almost all circumstances. This means your representation costs you nothing!
You will need pay stubs, W2s, and bank statements. Knowing what you can afford is critical to a successful home shopping experience.
Search for Homes
The fun part! I will schedule showings and help you find the perfect home.
Not all real estate websites are the same. I have tools and systems to ensure you see every available home that meets your criteria.
Make an Offer
I will prepare your offer based on the price and terms you choose.
Negotiation and Contract
It may take a few tries to get it just right, but hang in there. You're on your way!
In most cases the contract provides you with a timeline to obtain financing as well as time to inspect the physical condition of the home. I will inform you of all your rights and responsibilities related to the contract.
You and the seller have agreed to the price and terms. The home is effectively held for you until closing.
Perform due diligence, order the appraisal, conduct an inspection, and review terms with the lender.
Preparing for Closing
You will be finalizing your loan, reviewing documents, and discussing the findings from the inspection. I will manage this entire process for you.
This is the transfer of funds and ownership. A title company or an attorney typically acts as an independent third party to facilitate the closing.
