Understanding what to expect during this exciting milestone is a key first step.  

The Process

Agent

Work with the Right Agent

The right one is someone you trust, is an expert about the process, is tied into an extensive network of fellow agents and has your back every step of the way.  Your building a professional, as well as a personal relationship, and you want someone that supports you during the very emotional process of buying a home.  Your agent is a big part of your success.

Budget

Your Budget

Whether you are getting a loan or have decided to buy with all cash, confirming your budget is key to kicking off the home search.  When getting a loan, it is important to work with the right lender to set the stage for an efficient escrow process.  Based on your individual financial needs, I have an extensive network of financial resources and can assist in finding the appropriate mortgage source for you.  

Find

A Home Through Tours and Open Houses

Finding a home to make an offer takes time and patience. I will never rush you.  Touring a variety of homes and neighborhoods with buyers is something I love and is a top priority in understanding their wants/needs/desires. Everyone is on their own journey.  My objective is to get to that new home by saving time, energy and money. 

Offer

A Compelling Offer

Every deal is unique.  There is influence from varying factors including property condition, location, seller objectives, buyer’s desires, budget, overall buyer interest and timing. Doing the necessary due diligence to write the most compelling offer is a significant part of my process.  Because listing agents know when I submit an offer the buyers are strong candidates, her clients spend more time looking for the right property instead of making offers on the wrong ones.  

Escrow

Through the Escrow Process

The offer has been accepted and now starts the process to close escrow.  During the 15-30 day process, I stay heavily involved working with the escrow company and financial institution to keep things moving forward.  There are a lot of twists and turns that can take place along the way but I am there with buyers every step of the way.

Own

Your New Home

Escrow has closed and you are officially the owner!  Once I delivers the keys you can start the new chapter.  From there, I become your real estate resource for life.  Whenever you have a home need, never hesitate to give me a call.
