Do you need a Realtor?

Whether you're interested in buying a condo, townhouse, house or an apartment building, it is more than possible that you will need a real estate agent. As a full time Realtor I can provide you with all available information necessary to make a wise decision. By taking the time to get to know you and learning about your special needs I can help you find the home you are looking for, and find it at the price you want. I will personally counsel you through the whole buying process, from deciding what type of home you want and finding it to tracking the progress of your loan application.

Buying process:

  1. Pre-qualification - Pre-approval
    As an real estate agent I cannot arrange a mortgage but I can recommend several mortgage companies in your area that will pre-qualify or pre-approve you. This will help to determine the maximum you can spend on a property so you know what price range to target. To find out more about loans visit Mortgage section.

  2. Finding a property
    After we find out what exactly your expectations from your future house are and what your affordability level is I will show you all properties of your interest and accompany you through every home. As your representative I'll try to show you not only attractive features but also disadvantages as well. I search every property meeting my client's requirements from Realtor-listed properties in multiple listing service (MLS). I examine this database every day to find the right house for my clients as soon as possible.

  3. Negotiating an offer
    Once we have found a house of your dreams, I will help you prepare an offer, based on a complete market analysis of this particular house to make sure the price is reasonable and good for you. I will negotiate the offer with the seller's agent, looking for the best deal possible for you.

  4. Paperwork
    As your agent I will verify and supervise the legal aspects of your deal, including following through on the mortgage application, arranging for an inspection and any necessary repairs and coordinating the work of the attorney, title company and any other specialists.

  5. Closing the deal
    I will help you handle the final walk-through and settle any disputes we might have before the closing. Also I will assist you in our final step - during the closing of the deal.
