Here are some of the steps we will take to find your perfect home:
Determine Your Wants and Needs
This is the single most important step. By asking you a series of questions we will establish what you are looking for. Our goal is to not waste your time by looking at properties that are not in your price range or homes that don't meet your needs. Throughout the buying process we will maintain your confidentiality and represent your best interests.
Help You Get Pre-Qualified
This step will show you how much you can afford. This is accomplished by speaking with your financial institution and establishing what monthly payments you will be comfortable with. Many sellers will not proceed with an offer until they know they are dealing with someone who is pre-qualified. We'll help you get there quickly!
Finding the Right Home
We will use our powerful search programs and the latest real estate technology tools to find the properties that match your search parameters. We can send them to you immediately via email so that you can browse them at your leisure. You will also receive a personal username and password, along with your very own client section of our website. You can log in anytime you wish and view properties, make requests, or tell us if you would like to schedule an appointment. We will disclose all known facts about the property that are likely to affect your decision. When we find the home that meets your criteria, we will assist you in writing an offer and act as a liaison between you and the seller.
