It’s true, most home buyers don’t take the time to interview real estate agents. They just take their chances on meeting an agent in an open house or over the phone. An easy, hassle free 30 minute interview will tell you if you want to work with me.

During this time you will learn:

Why I can save my buyers hundreds of dollars on loan fees.

How I can save my buyers thousands in mortgage payments.

Why my buyers look at their convenience and not mine.

How my buyers know about homes that meet their needs before anyone else.

Why my buyers have a "LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT GUARANTEE."

How my buyers avoid the 8 most common mistakes made by homebuyers.

Why my negotiation experience could save you thousands!

Why 92% of my business is repeat and referral business.

Why I provide a thorough market analysis for every home that our buyers have an interest in.

How my approach keeps you in control – From Start to Finish

I will assist you through every step of the home buying process and make it a successful and enjoyable one.

What I will do for you...

Buying A Home

1.  Not understanding a local market and all that is available as home purchase choices for you.
2.  Not being selective, trying to see everything, including homes that may not even be in your price range.
3.  Not understanding pricing and the true value of certain home amenities.
4.  Weak negotiating. This mistake alone can cost the home buyer thousands of dollars.
5.  Not requiring the needed and proper inspections and using less than reputable inspectors.
6.  Not understanding all available home financing options.
7.  Paying rates and fees that are excessive.
8.  Looking for the perfect home.
9.  Not previewing schools, shopping and other neighborhood amenities.
10.  Not understanding home appreciation in particular neighborhoods.
11. Purchasing the most expensive or largest home in a particular area or neighborhood
