1. Analyze

I know the home buying experience can be tough. As a real estate agent with local market knowledge and CPA who understands the financial implications, I can help ease you through the process of finding your dream home. I have been down this road before, so I will ask the necessary questions and gather the important data we need to kick off your journey to home ownership. Let us get started!

2. Finance

At this stage, our job is to maneuver all the financial pieces to ensure you’re on strong financial footing when that dream home becomes available. Our recommended network of lenders and financial experts will help tighten up your credit, determine exactly how much you can afford for both a home and a down payment, and make sure you’re pre-approved for a loan, all with the goal of finding the perfect home.

3. Shop

Now for the fun part! I will help you draw up a “wish list” of everything you’re looking for in not just your new home, but your new community as well. We will match your must-haves with your budget and then draw on my local expertise and network of industry colleagues to help you find a place that’s everything you wished for. Shopping for a home is exciting, so just have fun with it!

4. Offer

You have found “the one” and you’re ready to make an offer! I will help you formulate a fair, data-driven purchase offer based on in-depth market analysis, and draw up the purchase agreements. Then, we will leverage smart negotiating skills to guide you through the offer process. Should things not work out with one offer, we’ll be ready with a game plan for the next.

5. Conditional Acceptance

If included a condition in your offer, you can elect to inspect the property, consult a mortgage broker, lawyer, or others.   If issues arise, I will work with you to develop strategies on how best to proceed. You’re getting close, and you don’t want to set yourself up for a houseful of headaches.

6. Celebrate

Making it through to closing can seem like a mountain of details but the view from the top is worth it. Expect to sign a ton of paperwork before you get there, and I will be there every step of the process. A few days before closing, we will conduct a final walk-through, and then, once both parties sign closing statements, the keys are yours and we’ll celebrate your new home and your new life!
