A REALTOR® brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the business of buying a home. We are not just sales agents -- we are expert negotiators, resources for financial information, and superb navigators around the neighborhood. A REALTOR® is a member of the National Association of Realtors (NAR) and must abide by a Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice enforced by the NAR. A professional REALTOR® is your best resource when buying a home.
By working with a professional you can not only save money and avoid the frustrations sometimes associated with purchasing a home, but it will also save you time. Your time is valuable, and looking for a home can become a full time job. I spend a considerable amount of time getting to know the housing market inside and out, and that is where my expertise in the market benefits you. By helping you avoid wasting your valuable time on properties that are overpriced or do not meet your criteria in other ways, I help you achieve your goal of buying the right house for you.
I can be your source for general information about the community, specific information about schools, churches, shopping, and transportation. Whatever you require, I will either research to provide answers to your questions or give you the resources to find the information you need.
I can help you with any house even if it is listed elsewhere, or is being sold by the owner directly.
I have relationships with lenders in the area, and can help you get pre-approved for a mortgage, discuss down payments, closing costs, and monthly payment options.
I am an excellent negotiator who will present your offer to the homeowner and help you through the process of obtaining the best deal. I will bring objectivity to the buying transaction, and can point out advantages and disadvantages of a particular property.
