Buying a home is likely to be the largest purchase you’ll ever make, but doesn’t also have to be the most nerve-wracking experience you’ll ever undertake. A good REALTOR® will be involved every step of the way and be your guide, ally, negotiator, often mediator, tutor and perhaps life-long friend.
A good REALTOR® will get involved early to help you navigate financing, from choosing a good lender and program to pre-qualifying for an amount you can comfortably carry.
Perhaps most associated with a REALTOR® is the home search process. A good REALTOR® will be patient and help you find the best home for you, without regard to how much time that may take or their financial stake in it. Mine is not the sole source of income in our household, so you will never feel me pressure you into something that is not a good fit. I can afford to wait for the search to move at your pace.
A good REALTOR® will also stay engaged late in the process, even after the offer is written, helping you through inspection and appraisal, and renegotiating, if necessary, based on those findings.
Referrals and return-customers account for approximately 80% of my business. These people believe I am one of the good REALTOR®s. Call me and let me prove it!
